You don’t need to have completed the game, but you do need to have beaten two specific bosses to enter Shadow of the Erdtree’s Shadow Realm: Starscourge Radahn and Mohg, Lord of Blood.

Microsoft clearly still cares about Game Pass. Exclusives? Not so much

Last week, I posited that the Xbox showcase on June 9 would be the most important in the history of Microsoft’s gaming division.

It was confident and smooth in its orchestration, impressive in a way that was almost calming after the awkward anticlimax of Summer Game Fest two days earlier. But it was still immensely significant: for its indication of the seismic publishing power Microsoft now holds, for the questions it answered about Xbox’s future, and for the questions it didn’t.
