A Small Addition in Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC Could Have a Big Impact


Elder Ring is a highly comprehensive game that has been released. While many games are moving towards a live-service model with seasonal content and battle passes, Elder Ring offers an extensive amount of content for a reasonable price. It features a massive open-world, intricate lore, over 100 boss fights, a wide variety of enemy types, numerous dungeons, and a larger selection of weapons and armor than any previous FromSoftware game. The value provided by Elder Ring exceeds its price.




However, FromSoftware is not content with just that. After several updates and patches, including some new content, FromSoftware has announced a full-fledged DLC expansion for Elder Ring that is coming soon. Although there is little information available about it, Elder Ring‘s Shadow of the Erdtree is expected to be the most ambitious DLC expansion from FromSoftware yet. This speaks volumes considering their track record. While Shadow of the Erdtree will undoubtedly introduce new bosses, enemies, weapons, and armor, there is one small addition that may have a significant impact on a specific group of players.

Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC Should Include Additional Trophies

FromSoftware games are known for their challenging but rewarding trophy and achievement lists, and Elder Ring is no different. It has a difficulty rating of 7/10 on PSNProfiles, and obtaining the Platinum trophy can take players anywhere from 65 hours to well over 100 hours, depending on their approach to obtaining the trophies. Fortunately, only one of the trophies in Elder Ring is missable, allowing players to enjoy the game and collect all the loot at their own pace.

Trophy hunting may not be appealing to everyone, especially considering the time and skill required to achieve the Platinum trophy, which can exceed 100 hours. However, for those interested in trophy/achievement hunting, Elder Ring‘s trophy list is a hidden gem. It encourages dedicated players to explore every aspect of this vast game. While most players may not pay much attention to it, the addition of a lengthy list of trophies in Elder Ring‘s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC would mean a lot to these fans.

DLC expansions often include new trophies and achievements for players to pursue. While these trophies are typically separate from the main list and do not contribute to a Platinum trophy, most trophy hunters do not mind. They see it as an opportunity to fully explore every corner of the game’s map. Shadow of the Erdtree should follow this pattern by introducing trophies based on defeating new bosses, exploring new areas, and obtaining the new weapons and armor introduced in the DLC.

If the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC for Elder Ring truly wants to go above and beyond, it could also add trophies related to the content that FromSoftware has added to the game since its launch. Over the past year, FromSoftware has continued to update Elder Ring with new features such as NPC questlines and the PvP Coliseum. Including a few trophies based on these

Elder Ring is one of the most feature-complete games ever released. While more and more games are adopting a live-service model that focuses on seasonal content and battle passes, Elder Ring stands on the opposite end of the field, offering hundreds of hours of content for a reasonable price. With a gigantic open-world, some incredibly complex lore, over 100 boss fights, a vast array of enemy types, a ton of dungeons, and more weapons and armor than ever seen before in a FromSoftware game, Elder Ring is more than worth the price of admission.




But FromSoftware isn’t happy just leaving it at that. After a handful of updates and patches, some of which added some new content, FromSoftware announced a fully-fledged DLC expansion coming to Elder Ring sometime soon. Though fans know very little about it, Elder Ring‘s Shadow of the Erdtree is said to be FromSoftware’s most ambitious DLC expansion yet, which is really saying something. And while Shadow of the Erdtree is sure to receive a plethora of new bosses, enemies, weapons, and armors, there’s one small addition that could end up making a huge impact to one specific group of players.

Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC Should Add More Trophies

FromSoftware games always have notoriously difficult, but rewarding trophy or achievement lists, and Elder Ring is no exception. Ranked at a 7/10 difficulty on PSNProfiles, Elder Ring‘s Platinum journey can take players anywhere from 65 hours to well over 100, all depending on how they go about hunting down those trophies. Thankfully, just one of Elder Ring‘s trophies is missable, meaning that for the most part, players can just enjoy their time with Elder Ringand eventually set about grabbing all of the game’s loot when they feel ready to do so.

Naturally, trophy hunting isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially not when that journey to Platinum can take north of 100 hours and takes quite a bit of patience and skill. But for those that are into trophy/achievement hunting, Elder Ring‘s trophy list is a real hidden treat, encouraging the most dedicated players to see absolutely everything that this huge game has to offer. And while the vast majority of players may not think twice about it, it would mean a lot to these fans if Elder Ring‘s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC brought another lengthy list of trophies to the game.

DLC trophies and achievements are nothing new to the gaming industry, with just about every big AAA DLC expansion adding another handful of digital awards for players to hunt down. Though these trophies are often separated from the main list, and as such don’t offer a Platinum trophy upon completion, that doesn’t usually bother most trophy hunters, with many simply seeing it as a reason to scour every last inch of the game’s map. Shadow of the Erdtree should be no exception, adding trophies based on defeating the DLC’s new bosses, exploring any new areas of the map, and finding all of the new weapons and armor the DLC brings to the game.

If Elder Ring‘s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC really wanted to go above and beyond, then it could even add trophies based on all the content FromSoftware has added to the game since launch. Over the last year and a bit, FromSoftware has continued to update Elder Ringand some of those updates have added some new features such as new NPC questlines and the PvP Coliseum. It would be great to see Shadow of the Erdtree add a handful of trophies based on these post-launch updates as well, incentivizing old fans to return to the game and check out everything they’ve missed.

Elder Ring is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
