Elden Ring Publisher Warns Fans They Have Less Than Two Weeks to Beat Mohg So They Can Play Shadow of the Erdtree DLC

With the release of hotly anticipated Elden Ring DLC Shadow of the Erdtree less than two weeks away, publisher Bandai Namco has reminded fans they need to get a move on and prepare for its launch by defeating one of the original game’s optional bosses.

In a recent interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki said players access the DLC content when they’ve defeated Starscourge Radahn and then optional boss Mohg, Lord of Blood. Miyazaki revealed the entrance to the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is the withered arm hanging from the cocoon in the Mohg, Lord of Blood boss fight area.

Publisher Bandai Namco re-tweeted a post by streamer Cohh Carnage that highlighted that Steam achievements indicate the majority of Elden Ring players on Valve’s platform have yet to defeat Mohg.

As Cohh Carnage points out, just over 60% of Elden Ring players will not be able to play Shadow of the Erdtree because they haven’t defeated Mohg. It’s a similar case on PlayStation and Xbox, with around two thirds of players having failed to defeat Mohg on each platform. Thankfully, IGN has a guide on how to prepare for the Shadow of Erdtree DLC.
