The description of the said trailer also goes over how the Land of Shadow is purged in a battle and set ablaze by Messmer’s flame. It further leads to revealing how it was this land where Miquella chose to go after becoming a cocoon in The Lands Between, leaving behind his flesh, strength, and lineage.

What Is The Land Of Shadows And How Is The Player Going To Access It

It is mentioned how the player would need to complete the base Elden Ring game first to get started with Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. As mentioned before, one would need to go to Mohg’s palace and touch Miquella’s hanging arm from the cocoon to transverse to the new lands.

It seems like the new Land of Shadow is a world imitated from the real Lands Between, and the player would be able to seamlessly travel back and forth between the two maps, facing new enemies and bosses introduced in the extension. There are also many new items and even ashes of wars shown in the trailer that has got the whole fan base excited, with everybody now waiting for the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC to finally release in June.
