The Land of Shadow. A place obscured by the Erdtree

Where the goddess Marika first set foot

A land purged in an unsung battle

Set ablaze by Messmer’s flame

It was to this land that Miquella departed

Divesting himself of his flesh, his strength, his lineage

Of all things Golden

And now Miquella awaits the return of his promised Lord

“Guided by Empyrean Miquella, players are beckoned to the Land of Shadow, a place obscured by the Erdtree where the goddess Marika first set foot,” the publisher wrote. “In these strange new lands, players discover the dark secrets of the world as they meet others who follow in Miquella’s footsteps with ulterior motives.”
