ELDEN RING Shadow of the Erdtree Edition
This confusingly titled version is actually a bundle of both the base game and the DLC and includes the pre-order Ring of Miquella Bonus Gesture for $80. If you were to buy the Standard Edition of the base game at its current price of $60, plus the standard edition of the DLC at $40, this bundle would save you $20. When ordering make careful note of the word ‘Edition’ tacked on at the end to distinguish it from the standard DLC only version.

 

ELDEN RING Shadow of the Erdtree Deluxe Edition
At $100 the Deluxe Edition is the ultimate premium bundle of both titles, and includes the Elden Ring base game, the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion, and the Digital Artbook & Soundtrack for each. Also includes the pre-order Ring of Miquella Bonus Gesture.
