Elden Ring is even harder than ever with the first DLC called Shadow of the Erdtree. Hundreds of thousands of people were attracted by this expansion. However, with big popularity, there are various technical problems. Some players have issues with starting DLC, and others are stuck in infinite loading screen. Let’s look at the last case in this guide.

Elden Ring DLC Not Loading, Stuck in Infinite Loading Screen

Many players report that after installing DLC, Elden Ring is not loading properly. If your game is stuck in infinite loading screen, we have some answers, but you may not like them.

First of all, you are not alone in your problem, and fans have found many potential solutions to the issue – file verification, playing offline, quitting and re-entering the game. All of these methods are supposed to help you load the title faster. However, we are not so sure that they work. It may be just a trick to deceive your mind.

The truth is that the game is loading (at least in most cases), but slowly. Some players repot that it took more than 30 minutes to leave loading screen, so even more than 10 is nothing unordinary. It means that you should be patient, and by that you may save yourself some time in a long run (reinstalling the game can be lengthy). Definitely, loading should take less than killing some of the bosses.

If you want to earn back some of that lost time, you may want to look at our guide. You will find there a lot of helpful tricks and even an interactive map. So, good luck.
