Within the Elden Ring fan community, we keep counting the days until the release of the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC! To make matters worse for this growing impatience, the game's social networks recently shared, when recalling the availability of pre-orders, a visual which lifted the veil on a creature never seen before. If it already gives so many chills, it's because it reminds us of the monsters of a certain… Bloodborne!


Only a good month left before the return of the king: the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is languishing

For some of you, summer may mean clarity, warmth and sunshine. On their side, Elden Ring players will surely not have the same adjectives to give you when the DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree, is released.. In 2024, the developers at FromSoftware preferred to rhyme summer with darkness and difficulty rather than laziness and palm trees. After more than two years of waiting, the new subsidiary adventure in the universe ofElden Ring will enter the video game market on June 21or in a little over a month.

Given the auspicious period in terms of communication that is approaching – the famous Summer Game Fest -, it is very possible that the Japanese development studio will do something about this additional content with, why not, the broadcast of a new trailer. As if to better raise doubts in the community or increase excitement around this release, the game's official social networks Elden Ring have sent a message to remind you that pre-orders for the DLC are already open. Except that the monster present not only made players want to checkout: it also awakened their desire to theorize!

A new creature that is already shaking fans of Elden Ring and FromSoftware games

With its formula of Souls and the other titles in its catalog (Sekiro, Bloodborne and of course, Elden Ring), the FromSoftware studio has made the creation of nightmarish enemies one of its artistic signatures. Obviously, when we bring such horrors to life, there are sometimes moments when the internal influences are very clearly visible, which means that the players quickly mentioned the name of Bloodborne seeing this new visual and this new monster. As some have pointed out by sharing the publication a few lines above, this abomination is reminiscent of the design of the Garden of Eyes, or even the Winter Lantern.

In any case, players are already sure of it, just by looking at its appearance, this creature looks like a monster who will take great pleasure in inflicting status changes on us and making us angry! Between the artistic similarities and the apprehensions about the capabilities of this enemy, players are already trembling, and not just from fear. After having gone through and spent dozens and dozens of hours of play, maybe even hundreds, this is typically the kind of thing that can increase the enthusiasm of the community tenfold, excited at the idea of ​​handing over the hands in this harsh experience – as recently discovered this streamer who ended up in tears facing a boss – and to reopen the wounds caused by the main adventure.
