Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree's map is far bigger than any of us dreamed

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree's map is far bigger than any of us dreamed

The new Elden Ring DLC is going to be massive

Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree is less than a month away, and we’ve now got our first idea of the new map's size.

Hype is at indescribable levels for the Elden Ring DLC, thanks to a recent story trailer giving us a taste of the mysteries we’ll uncover and the threats we’ll face within the expansion.

Check out that story trailer for yourself below.

Though something a lot of players want to know is exactly how big the upcoming DLC is, after all, it’s the biggest expansion FromSoftware has made so far.

Fortunately, new details have leaked online, including the new map size, what dungeons you’ll find, as well as roughly how long it’ll take to complete.

Players will presumably need to travel to the new map through the Mohgwyn Palace area through Miquella’s corpse, making Mohg himself a mandatory boss in order to access the DLC.

According to Pirat_Nation on Twitter, or X if you’d prefer, once you’ve entered the expansion, you’ll embark on a quest that’s over 70 hours long if you want to see and do everything it has to offer.

For context, the base game takes around 132 hours to fully-complete according to HowLongToBeat, making this one hell of an expansion.

As for the map size, Pirat_Nation said it’s “around the size of Caelid, Liurnia, Mountain Top of Giants (Yes, it's that big)”.

Of course, take this with a pinch of salt, as we only know for sure once the DLC officially releases, but judging from what we’ve seen in the trailer it’s not hard to believe it’ll be massive.

Additionally, there’ll be four new dungeons to explore, with presumably each one having a boss to fight at the end as well as plenty of goodies to uncover.

Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree will release on 22 June, and be the one and only DLC expansion for the game, which is a hell of a way to say goodbye to the soulsborne title.
