Praise the sun! It has been almost a year since the release of Elden Ring on 25 February 2022, and millions Tarnished across the globe have ventured into The Lands Between to fight powerful bosses or die trying. As the overall Game of the Year in 2022, it is time to celebrate Elden Ring's success and its fans with the one-year anniversary event.
This article outlines everything you need to know about the Elden Ring anniversary celebration, including the real-life location of the event, how you can watch it online, the dates, times, details, and what to expect, alongside thoughts on if a new Elden Ring DLC will be announced.
Elden Ring Anniversary Celebration Event Details & Location
If you happen to be in or near Stockholm in Sweden on 25 February 2023, then you are in for a treat.
The Elden Ring anniversary celebration is a live event which will take place at Red Bull Gaming Sphere in Stockholm.
Doors open at 13:00 UTC+2, and entry is completely free, but you need to be 18 years or older to enter. Bandai Namco explains what you can expect via the official event page on Facebook:
Join the event, grab a beer or a Red Bull, try the game and hang out with your friends. There will be contests, a live show, PvP tournaments, drinks, giveaways, raffles, a quiz, PCs so you can try the game (or log in to your existing character) and of course - a birthday cake.
How To Watch Elden Ring Anniversary Live Show & Start Time
While the doors open at noon on 25 February 2023 at the venue, the live show, which will be streamed on Twitch, only kicks off at 17:00 UTC+2. The livestream will take place on the official Bandai Namco Europe Twitch channel.
For your viewing convenience, we've embedded the relevant Twitch channel below so you don't miss out on any of the celebrations...and possible Elden Ring DLC reveal?
Will An Elden Ring DLC Get Revealed?
To be frank, we might not see a DLC reveal for Elden Ring during the anniversary celebration. However, it would be a great time to show off or at least tease what's coming next to Elden Ring following the Colosseum update focused on PvP, which was released in December 2022.
We already know that Elden Ring and Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki said: "As for Elden Ring, we have several more things we want to do" during a speech at The Game Awards 2022.
It is pure speculation from fans at this point that we will see an Elden Ring DLC reveal, possibly a paid one, during the celebrations. Rumors have previously floated around that it could be a Badlands DLC, but at the time of writing, nothing has been confirmed. We will just have to wait and see what happens on 25 February 2023.
So there you have it, everything Elden Ring fans need to know about the anniversary celebration event, including how you can watch all the action live and our thoughts on a possible new DLC reveal. We will endeavor to update this article if any more information becomes available or changes ahead of the live show.
