This lie from the devs about Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree delights players



The Elden Ring community is praising the developers for Shadow of the Erdtree, but not for the reasons you might think.

While it’s generally not good for creators to lie to their audience about an upcoming game or content, this situation might be the first case where the opposite is true. With great humor, Elden Ring fans express their gratitude to the development team for lying about the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC.

When the upcoming expansion was first revealed in 2023, game director Hidetaka Miyazaki said the size of the new area on the map would be similar to Necrolimbe in the original game.

However, with Shadow of the Erdtree fast approaching, the review embargo has finally been lifted. It turned out that the size of the map is actually much larger, and the Elden Ring community is thrilled.

Fans are so excited that some have taken to the game’s subreddit to congratulate Miyazaki for lying about the DLC.

As one user comments: “ The best type of liar. He lied like a parent who tells you that you shouldn’t get too excited for Christmas because it’s complicated money-wise and then BAM, the good surprises are under the tree “.

Another player expresses his praise in a style more suited to the lore of the game, saying: “ A deception that elevates us is more precious than a multitude of little truths “.

This wouldn’t be the first time that information about Elden Ring would be false, as pointed out by a user who recalls that Miyazaki also said that the original game would last ” about 8 p.m. “.

Of course, there’s a chance that this isn’t a lie at all, because at the time of his comment, development hadn’t been completed, so the size of the DLC could have increased.

As one fan says: “ His original plan was probably ‘about the size of Necrolimb’, but that eventually got out of hand and before he knew it, he had created Elden Ring 2 “.

Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree is currently dominating online discussions, even becoming the highest-rated DLC ever released. Now the fact that the map is much larger than expected only adds fuel to this already very intense fire.
