Elden Ring DLC Release Time for PS5 and Xbox

The release date and time for Elden Ring’s new DLC Shadow of the Erdtree on PS5 and Xbox is set for June 21st at midnight in your local time zone. However, according to this tweet, there is an exception for the west coast of the United States. When it’s midnight on the east coast, the DLC will be available for everyone in the country. So, if you’re on the west coast, you can start playing at 9 p.m. PDT on June 20.

Generally, you can expect to start playing at midnight on the 21st June in your region. This means that some areas will get access earlier than others. You can adjust your console’s location to appear as if you’re in Australia or New Zealand to start playing ahead of schedule. Keep in mind that changing your location might affect other settings, so only proceed if you are confident in what you’re doing. PlayStation players can begin preloading 48 hours ahead of launch, but download for Xbox players will be available at launch time.

Elden Ring DLC Shadow of the Erdtree Release Time for PC

For PC players, the release time of Elden Ring DLC Shadow of the Erdtree will vary significantly based on your location, since it won’t be a rolling launch. According to the same tweet, the game will launch at midnight CEST, which translates to 11 PM BST June 20th, 6 PM EDT on the June 20th, 3 PM PDT June 20th, and so on.

Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
