The Elden Ring DLC statuettes make a pre-order extra tempting

Nearly two years after the debut of Elden Ring, FromSoftware has announced a June 21 launch date for the DLC. As you might expect, Shadow of the Erdtree is currently only available in digital format from online outlets, with the exception of the massive collector’s edition being sold through Bandai Namco.

Standard and premium versions of the DLC are currently available to pre-order through Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation, which can include digital extras, with some versions even being bundled with the base game. Placing a pre-order for any edition of Shadow of the Erdtree grants access to the Ring of Miquella gesture when the DLC launches.

Shadow of the Erdtree premium bundle

For an extra $10, you can pre-order the $49.99 Premium Bundle for Steam, Xbox or PlayStation.

Finally, the $249.99 Collector’s Edition is available exclusively for Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation from the Bandai Namco online store. The collector’s edition includes a 40-page physical art book, a digital copy of the soundtrack, and a 46cm figure of Messmer the Impaler. Just note that this bundle doesn’t include a copy of the base game, so you’ll need to purchase that separately.

If you don’t already own a copy of Elden Ring, you’ll want to check out the bundled Shadow of the Erdtree edition, which includes the base game and the DLC for just $79.99. This version of the game can be found on the Xbox and PlayStation digital storefronts, but is also available in physical formats at GameStop.


Elden Ring and Shadow of the Erdtree deluxe edition bundle

The Deluxe Edition for Shadow of the Erdtree includes the same digital soundtrack and artbook included in the standalone premium bundle but also includes a copy of the base game. This $99.99 DLC bundle is available from Xbox and PlayStation.


If you want to add even more loot from the forgotten lands to your curio shelf, Bandai Namco is also producing an uncanny replica of the Helmet of Messmer the Impaler. This rusty reptilian helm will set you back $189.99, with copies available exclusively through Bandai Namco. Each helmet comes packaged with a stand and a certificate of authenticity.
