FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have announced a major update for the highly anticipated Elden Ring expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree. The update will include bug fixes, balance changes, and exciting new features. One of the highlights of the update is the addition of new inventory features, such as marking newly-acquired items and a tab for recently obtained items. Additionally, summon pools have been improved, with active summoning pools carrying over to New Game+ and the ability to enable or disable individual summoning pools in a new Map Functions menu.

In response to player demand, the update will also introduce five new hairstyles for characters in the game. This will allow players to customize their characters even further and look good while exploring the world of Elden Ring.

FromSoft has also provided a detailed breakdown of the global release timings for the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. Players in North America can expect the expansion to drop on June 20, while players in Europe, Asia, and Australia will receive it on June 21. It’s important to note that console releases will not go live at the same time worldwide, with each region receiving the expansion at midnight in their local time zone.

For players concerned about system requirements, FromSoft has confirmed that the minimum spec for the expansion remains unchanged from that of the base game. This means that if you’re already playing Elden Ring, you’re all set for the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. However, if you haven’t defeated Mohg yet, now might be a good time to do so before the expansion is released.
