In a recent tweet, Lance McDonald debunked a rumor about the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. He is a known industry insider famous for making the Bloodborne 60 FPS patch. He recently outright said the rumor from a leaker from an outsource studio in Singapore is “not true.” The leaker claimed he made environment assets and many item assets for the DLC.

In the leak, the Singapore-based leaker claimed that the entire game world of Elden Ring is duplicated as a Shadow Realm. Further, he claimed there are warpable spots all over the game and the Shadow Realm is fractured and fragmented. In the Shadow Realm, ErdTree looks different, and the sky is more black. But now all these rumors are not true according to Lance McDonald.
