Elden Ring Hits New Sales Milestone as New Trailer Appears

Bandai Namco not only announced a new Elden Ring sales milestone, but it also revealed a new trailer to help people catch up with the game ahead of Shadow of the Erdtree. As of June 2024, 25 million people worldwide bought the game.

First, here’s the Elden Ring sales milestone announcement. As a reminder, the last update came in February 2023. At that point, the game was at 20 million copies sold. So it took about a year and four months to sell an additional 5 million.

Next, here’s the new Elden Ring “The Journey so Far” trailer. It acts as a reminder of what to expect from this FromSoftware Soulslike and goes over the backstory for the main adventure.

While this Elden Ring trailer is more focused on things we’d seen leading up to the add-on, there was another one that pertained to new content recently as well. The story trailer for the expansion appeared at the end of May 2024. It suggested what new tidbits of lore we’ll encounter.

Ahead of Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, we’ve also seen a number of other related items. For example, an Erdtree’s Favor necklace is on the way. Yen Press also released the third volume of the comedic manga series based on the game. However, one item won’t be available before or just after launch. Bandai Namco noted there’s an issue with the Shadow of the Erdtreeart book, so that will ship later.

Elden Ring is on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows PC, and the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC debuts on June 21, 2024.
