The highly anticipated continuation of Elden Ring has yet to be officially released as it is already receiving universal praise with its early reviews.

These plaudits are enough to make Shadow of the Erdtree the new king of DLC, as it boasts the best expansion rating of all time on Metacritic.

News of this accomplishment emerged shortly after the expansion’s review embargo was lifted, which saw an avalanche of perfect scores and praise pour in. This propelled Shadow of the Erdtree up to an overall rating of 95.

Fans immediately pointed out that this DLC was shaping up to be the best DLC that FromSoftware has ever created. Among the developer’s catalog, the highest DLC rating up to that point was Astorias of the Abyss for the original Dark Souls at 89.

However, Shadow of the Erdtree fans were blown away when they realized that this score surpasses not just FromSoftware’s DLC library, but the entire history of DLCs.

Previously, the highest-rated expansion was The Witcher 3’s Blood and Wine, which had a score of 92. It was released in 2016 and remained at the top of that list for eight years before being overtaken by the expansion from Elden Ring.
