Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree DLC Recovers to ‘Mostly Positive’

This improvement follows initial player discontent due to the DLC’s high difficulty and performance issues on the PC version.

Initial Reception and Improvement

The Shadow of the Erdtree DLC initially faced criticism from players, leading to a “Mixed” user rating on Steam.

Perfect. Everything down by the last minute details.” A third reviewer mentioned, “The only game that makes me despise sunflowers, extremely hard but enjoyable and perfectly represents what a DLC should be.”

Martin stated, “Oh, and about those rumours you may have heard about a feature film or television series based on Elden Ring… I have nothing to say. Not a word, nope, not a thing, I know nothing, you never heard a peep from me, mum mum mum. What rumour?”
