Celebrating One Year of Elden Ring: An Event This Month
To mark its upcoming first anniversary, Bandai Namco is throwing a special celebration for Elden Ring, FromSoftware’s hit open-world game that launched on February 25, 2022. The title quickly became a cultural phenomenon, setting sales records, winning multiple Game of the Year awards, and ending the year as the best-reviewed new release.
The staggering success of Elden Ring has attracted a surge of new FromSoftware followers, eager to find out what’s in store for the game. Although whispers of more Elden Ring content have been circulating, nothing concrete has been revealed. While some believe an announcement is likely to be made at the game’s first anniversary, followers should not rely on this happening.
On February 25th, a celebration for Elden Ring will be hosted in Stockholm at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere. This event will be streamed on Twitch and will include a live show, giveaways, contests, prizes, a pub quiz, refreshments, and the opportunity to compete in Elden Ring’s PvP. The occasion has been advertised solely on the Bandai Namco Nordics Twitter page, with no mention on the official Elden Ring or Bandai Namco US accounts. As such, fans should not anticipate any major revelations about Elden Ring if they tune in.
It’s still possible that an Elden Ring DLC announcement might be made at the event, but it’s not expected. Speculation is that FromSoftware is working on a sizeable expansion for the game, yet a year after its launch, there has been no official announcement. If the Elden Ring DLC does come out this year, it could be a very prosperous one for the developer.
Although the future of the Elden Ring DLC is uncertain, it is known that FromSoftware is currently in the process of creating Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon. It is unlikely to feature a Soulslike design, as the developer is taking a risk with the project. It remains to be seen if their gamble will be successful.
Gamers can now enjoy Elden Ring on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
