Elden Ring’s Shadow Of The Erdtree DLC seems like a world away, but this expansion mod will do for the time being.
FromSoftware is undoubtedly cooking up something good for Elden Ring’s upcoming DLC expansion, Shadow Of The Edtree. While its release date is pure speculation at the moment, you just know when it drops it’s going to be breathtaking.

The DLC we received for the Dark Souls trilogy and Bloodborne are without a doubt the best parts of those games, often introducing several new areas, incredible bosses and more weapons/magic you can take back into the base game.
While we wait players have wasted no time replaying Elden Ring, sampling and organising its convoluted lore, and making a few minor and major changes via mods.
One such mod is Elden Ring Ascended, created by VanBuinen, which might as well be the game’s Prepare To Die edition with how many changes it makes to the game’s world.
Despite arguably being FromSoftware’s most accessible soulsborne, Elden Ring still packs a challenge for seasoned veterans of Hidetaka Miyazaki’s twisted game design. The Elden Ring Ascended Mod ups the ante with three difficulty settings, Age of Stars, Age of Frenzy and Age of Death.
Changes include adding more enemies to boss encounters, changing the time of day to night which spawns several tougher enemies, increasing the amount of status damage the player receives and even brand new boss fights you won’t have seen before.
It’s no joke, and the mod even comes with a warning for players not expecting much of a challenge. It reads: “Warning: This Mod is Extremely Hard! If you don't like Hard or Unfair Fights don't play this Mod.” It even goes on to say only 5% of players who download the mod go on to complete it, if you’re looking for greater incentive to test what you’re made of.
The modder also made similar Ascension mods for several Dark Souls games.
