It’s time to take on Mohg.

Elden Ring players may face difficulties accessing the highly anticipated “Shadow of the Erdtree” DLC when it launches next week. FromSoftware, the game’s developer, had previously announced the requirements for accessing the new content. Despite adequate preparation time, it appears most players will be ineligible to play the DLC immediately.

Mohg, Lord of Blood: A Barrier to Access

To access the “Shadow of the Erdtree” DLC, players must first defeat the optional boss, Mohg, Lord of Blood, located in Mohgwyn Palace. Despite being an optional part of the base game, Mohg’s defeat is mandatory for unlocking the DLC. However, statistics reveal that the majority of players have not accomplished this feat.

Achievements and Completion Rates

Based on achievement and trophy data, approximately 38% of Steam players have defeated Mohg. On PlayStation, the completion rate is around 35%, while Xbox players lag at 18%. These figures suggest that most gamers will need to defeat Mohg to access the DLC content.

Bandai Namco’s Concerns

Bandai Namco, the game’s publisher, may be concerned about the potential impact on DLC sales due to this accessibility issue. The company has been urging players on social media to defeat Mohg in the coming week to ensure they can play “Shadow of the Erdtree” upon release. The success of this campaign remains uncertain, but players eager for the new content need to take action.

DLC Release Details

“Shadow of the Erdtree” is set to launch on June 21st and will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. Players interested in the new expansion are advised to defeat Mohg as soon as possible to access the DLC immediately.
