It’s rare for a game’s DLC to receive an aggregate score of 90 based on reviews from the gaming press. The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine’s score of 92 was already a major achievement. Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree has surpassed expectations by achieving a score of 95 and 94 from Metacritic and OpenCritic, respectively. The base game is also among the highest rated titles of all time.

Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree features more than 10 main bosses as well as additional side bosses. Defeating some of them is required to progress the story, while others are optionally available to challenge. As for the new weapons, it has been revealed that Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree will add around 100 of them for players to discover. This isn’t just limited to new weapons within the weapon type categories available in the base game, however. Players can also discover eight brand-new weapon types. One of them is the Martial Arts category. This new weapon type allows players to engage in combat bare-handed, as the Tarnished One gains the ability to dish out heavy punches and kicks into their enemies.

Elden Ring was released on February 25, 2022, and its new expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, was released on June 21, 2024. Both are available on PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
