Future Press has revealed a new volume in its Elden Ring Official Strategy Guide series. The Books of Knowledge collection has featured key info, guidance, and lore on The Lands Between in Vol. 1, and Shards of the Shattering in Vol. 3.

It will be released on September 30 in the US, and September 20 in the UK, costing $44.99 or £34.99 depending on your region. Preorders are now available via Amazon and Future Press.

This new tome will serve as a complete catalog of the Shadow Realm and its inhabitants, merging map-based world and dungeon guides with the detailed stats and analysis of enemies and equipment offered in previous editions. This could be a must-have reference book for Elden Ring’s DLC and an impressive collector’s item.

As you can tell, this isn’t Future Press’s first rodeo giving such thorough coverage to FromSoftware’s games. They recently revealed a brand new edition of the complete Bloodborne guide as part of the publisher’s 25th anniversary (preorders currently 41% off) and also produced the widely popular reprint of the Dark Souls Trilogy guide.

We gave Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree a 10/10, stating: “Like the base game did before it, Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree raises the bar for single-player DLC expansions. It takes everything that made the base game such a landmark RPG, condenses it into a relatively compact 20-25-hour campaign, and provides fantastic new challenges for heavily invested fans to chew on.”

Shadow of the Erdtree, released on June 21, 2024, includes bosses that truly test players’ limits, according to director Hidetaka Miyazaki. If Radahn is among those formidable foes, and while we wait for Future Press’ strategy guide, don’t miss IGN’s comprehensive guide for detailed information on the new weapons, quest lines, and strategies to conquer the big man himself in the expansion.
