Well, I was waiting to post this until I received a press release email about Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree, but apparently none were sent out by Bandai Namco yet. So, let's just roll with this based on what we can pull from the official website.

First off, we know that Shadow of the Erdtree will be released on June 21, 2024 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. It looks like you've got a choice of digital purchases between the $39.99 base edition or $49.99 for the Shadow of the Erdtree Premium Bundle. Both versions will include some pre-purchase bonuses.

All pre-purchases will get access to a bonus gesture. The Premium Bundle includes the Erdtree expansion, plus a digital artbook and soundtrack.

Those looking for something a little more extravagant can purchase a couple of different physical items. First, there is the Messmer the Impaler's Helmet for $189.99. This is only the helmet and does not seem like it comes with the game or expansion.

Then there is the $249.99 physical Collector's Edition for Shadow of the Erdtree. This comes with the expansion, a Messmer the Impaler Figure, a 40-page artbook, and a digital original soundtrack. This is available for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.

Get a look at both of these physical releases below along with a couple of additional screenshots and, of course, the gameplay footage reveal.
