The Elden Ring DLC ​​is missing a key feature as the disappointing FromSoftware trend continues

The hype surrounding the upcoming Elden Ring DLC ​​is currently at its peak, with the major expansion set to release on June 21, 2024 on PC and consoles. However, a dataminer suggests that Shadow of the Erdtree will continue a disappointing FromSoftware trend by not supporting the game with additional trophies or achievements.

This update comes from reliable source PlayStation Game Size, which also reveals that the major Elden Ring DLC ​​will be around 16.5GB in size and will be available for pre-download two days before its release on June 19, 2024. While the claim that there will be no additional PlayStation trophies or Xbox achievements has yet to be 100% confirmed, it's extremely likely given developer FromSoftware's track record with the Dark Souls series.

Fans of the 2022 smash hit have had to wait a long time. Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki first announced the DLC during the 2022 Game Awards: “As for Elden Ring, we still have some things we want to do,” he commented. It was then confirmed to be in development in early 2023, though development has largely stalled since then. Although Elden Ring has sold tens of millions of copies, it shows an impressive commitment to work on a DLC expansion for over two years – usually such a development cycle is spun off into a sequel, as we saw with Tears of the Kingdom.

The title has won several Game of the Year awards, including trophies from DICE and The Game Awards, and it was our overall Game of the Year winner here at TheSixthAxis.

We gave Elden Ring a top score of 10/10 in our February 2022 review. “Elden Ring is the game Souls fans have been waiting for,” said Jason. “From the open-world design to riding into battle on Torrent's back to the dark narrative that weaves throughout the world, this is a clear favorite for Game of the Year that will keep us all hooked for a long time to come.”
