FromSoftware has issued an official statement cautioning players about emerging story leaks for Elden Ring's upcoming DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree. Scheduled for release on June 21, Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree is presumed to be in the hands of reviewers, which likely accounts for the surfacing spoilers.

Touted as the biggest expansion for any FromSoftware game to date, Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree will immerse players in a brand-new map called the Realm of Shadow. The DLC's scope and ambition have fans eagerly anticipating its mysteries. FromSoftware has confirmed that players must fulfill certain prerequisites, such as defeating Mohg, Lord of Blood, and Starscourge Radahn, to access Shadow of the Erdtree.

Early previews for Shadow of the Erdtree have been promising, but as the release date approaches, story spoilers have unfortunately leaked online. This is likely due to the distribution of review copies. Details about Remembrances of every main boss, various story elements, and gameplay videos of the final boss fight, new weapons, and smaller enemies have all been leaked by one individual, who continues to upload footage to their Reddit account. Fans should be cautious online to avoid spoilers.

In response to the leaks gaining traction on social media, FromSoftware has posted a statement on its Twitter account, advising players to be "mindful of spoilers for those who want to tread into the Realm of Shadow with nothing but determination and their minds unclouded." As the DLC's release approaches, Elden Ring's concurrent player counts have been rising, with fans rushing to beat Mohg and prepare their builds for Shadow of the Erdtree.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree is expected to answer many mysteries, particularly surrounding Miquella, Messmer, and the Realm of Shadow. Fans are also intrigued by the requirement to defeat Starscourge Radahn to access the DLC and its potential story implications. Speculated to offer 30 to 40 hours of gameplay for 100% completion, Shadow of the Erdtree is shaping up to be larger than many full-priced RPGs on the market.
