Regardless of a number of indicators pointing in direction of an imminent Elden Ring DLC drop, it appears like we’ll in all probability want to attend a bit longer to listen to any concrete information.
Kadokawa, the father or mother firm of Elden Ring developer FromSoftware, launched its newest monetary report earlier this week, going into the standard bits about how the corporate is doing, what it expects for the long run, and different stuff you in all probability do not care about. The factor you’ll care about is that in an FAQ part, the subject of Elden Ring DLC was raised, asking what the event standing of Shadow of the Erdtree is, and when it is perhaps launched. “We’re at the moment working exhausting on the event of DLC for Elden Ring,” reads the response, persevering with, “however we have now not introduced a launch date right now.”
The report additionally famous earlier that “varied measures are at the moment in progress for Elden, together with the event of main DLC, to maximise [lifetime value].” Primarily, we in all probability should not count on a two 12 months anniversary DLC drop or one thing near that. Again in December, there was an inventory for a customized Elden Ring themed controller made in collaboration with Thurstmaster that appeared to leak a February launch date for Shadow of the Erdtree.
Then, in January, a Steam backend replace made reference to DLC, once more pointing in direction of a possible launch date – this paired with a YouTube playlist replace and a second Steam backend replace definitely made it look like DLC could possibly be coming quickly, however for now we’ll simply must hold our eyes peeled.
Within the meantime, it looks as if Tencent is perhaps engaged on a cellular model of Elden Ring impressed by Genshin Affect, apparently that includes in-app purchases, which feels like a little bit of a nightmare. I can considerably think about taking part in the sport on cellular when you’re utilizing a controller, however am I going to must roll for weapon summons? What about characters, will they be subjected to gacha pulls too? Undecided if I see this one working, however then I am not a mega company looking for to make ridiculous quantities of cash, so what do I do know?
