Elden Ring Unveils New DLC Enemy for Shadow of the Erdtree

Elden Ring has introduced a terrifying new enemy that might be one of the bosses in the upcoming Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. Fans have been eagerly awaiting this DLC for over two years, and their wait is almost over, with the release scheduled for June 21.

When Shadow of the Erdtree launches, players will have new vast lands to explore, filled with challenging enemies. The reveal trailer showcased various creatures, from minor foes to potential bosses. Since the trailer, more enemies have been unveiled, giving players a glimpse of what they can expect in their return to the Lands Between.

These new enemies have been revealed on social media, with Elden Ring highlighting a strange creature reminiscent of designs from FromSoftware's Bloodborne. This latest creature is a robed figure with horns, a golden mask, and chakram-like blades. While it is speculated that this could be a boss encounter, it might also be a smaller-scale enemy. Fans will discover its role when the DLC is released on June 21.


Elden Ring Reveals New DLC Enemy

One theory suggests that this newly-revealed enemy could be the second phase of a fight seen in the trailer. At one point, the trailer shows a monster wearing a lion's head, and some Twitter users noted that the robe and feet match the newly revealed creature, suggesting they might be the same. The base game of Elden Ring featured several memorable two-phase bosses, so it's plausible that the DLC will follow this trend.

However, this remains a theory, and fans will likely have to wait until June 21 to learn more. There is a possibility that more information about the DLC could be revealed earlier. Bandai Namco Entertainment, the publisher of Elden Ring, is one of the 55+ companies participating in this year's Summer Game Fest. Elden Ring was prominently featured at a previous Summer Game Fest, so it's not far-fetched to expect the DLC to make an appearance at this year's event on June 7.
