Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree nears completion as per SteamDB

Elden Ring’s upcoming expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, appears to be inching closer to release. It’s been almost a year since FromSoftware unveiled plans for this significant addition to Elden Ring. While specifics about its content and release date have been sparse, recent developments hint at progress.

Updates to the game’s Steam page, particularly within its paid DLC section, suggest that marketing efforts for Shadow of the Erdtree might soon ramp up. Observations from SteamDB indicate that the expansion’s development could be nearing completion.

Recently, Elden Ring’s Steam page has seen a flurry of updates. Notably, the changelog includes entries tagged with “qa-release” and “qa-debug”, signaling that the final stages of quality assurance testing are likely underway, involving both in-house and external testing teams.

Despite these hopeful signs, some indicators suggest a longer wait. FromSoftware maintains that development is on track. Furthermore, Kadokawa, the parent company of FromSoftware, stated that the expansion would not be released within this fiscal year, meaning a launch date post-April 1, 2024, is more likely.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
