Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree Steam Reviews are Back Up to Mostly Positive

Steam reviews for Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree are back up to Mostly Positive after launching to Mixed reviews on the platform. The latest expansion, which is being widely praised as the highest-rated DLC of all time, launched on Steam to underwhelming reviews with many citing both the game’s difficulty and performance issues on PC as sole reasons for the low ratings. Following the recent update 1.12.2 which readjusted the difficulty of the DLC, reviews have been steadily getting more positive.

Heading over to the Steam page of Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree now, you’ll notice that the reviews have gone from Mixed to Mostly Positive, meaning at least 70% of reviews are now positive. The reasons behind the initial low ratings are complicated but it boiled down to some users feeling that the difficulty of the DLC was a bit too much – something that From Software rectified in a recent patch that slightly increased the damage output and defence of Shadow Realm Blessings.

The game’s performance issues were also a contributing factor towards the Mixed reviews. Unfortunately, most of those issues still persist on PC though we can probably expect an update to fix a lot of those problems in the near future – the base game of Elden Ring, while critically acclaimed, also received some backlash on Steam at launch due to its performance issues which were later mostly fixed.

Another reason behind the shift to Mostly Positive reviews might be due to players finally collecting enough Scadutree fragments later in the game to bolster their attack and defence capabilities. Shadow of the Erdtree uses its own levelling system that’s exclusive to the DLC, so base game stats wouldn’t help most players.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Make sure you catch up on all of our latest content related to Elden Ring.
