Following recent leaks that the Elden Ring DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree, would be arriving in February 2024 on PS5 and Xbox, fans are hopeful that those rumors become true – everyone is hungry for more of FromSoftware’s excellent world design, haunting atmosphere, and feverishly brutal combat. Well, a newly-teased Elden Ring collectible won’t just look stunning, but it also lines up with those leaks that place Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdree’s release date just around the corner.
While the latest official line is that the Elden Ring DLC is “currently in development” and “progressing well”, we recently reported on a leaked Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree x Thrustmaster collaboration that shed light on the expansion. This leak not only unveiled a collection of stunning PS5 and Xbox controllers but also revealed a February 2024 release date for the Shadow of the Erdtree Elden Ring DLC.
Although FromSoftware and publisher Bandai Namco are yet to come on record to confirm or deny the Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree release date leaks, a new Elden Ring collectible by premium figurine designer PureArts is now also set to launch in February 2024. It’s rather odd that PureArt’s first Elden Ring collaboration would release in February of all times (which is a full two years on from the release of the game), building on the previous leaks that the DLC could be arriving next month.
As for the collectible merch itself, PureArts specializes in exceptionally detailed figures and statues for videogames and film, including mouth-watering Assassin’s Creed, Monster Hunter, and Cyberpunk statues. Given this, we’re expecting a similarly stunning Elden Ring statue when PureArts officially unveils the item. “Stay tuned for more details”, note the creators.
However, if this new Elden Ring merch is indeed set to coincide with the release of the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion, it’s possible that it’s based on a new character or plot point from the DLC. After all, we don’t yet know even the vague outline of the expansion or the design of the statue. Nevertheless, it is rather suspicious that a brand-new collaboration lines up with a previously leaked collaboration and DLC release date.
Elden Ring fans could be eating very well in February then, with a new PS5 and Xbox controller, a new collectible statue, and a fresh new expansion to dive into. In the meantime, dig into all the new PS5 games and new Xbox games on the way as there’s still some time to kill before our next outing in the Lands Between.
