PUBLISHER Bandai Namco has announced that Elden Ring will receive new DLC tomorrow as a free update for all players.
No matter what platform you purchased Elden Ring on, from tomorrow (December 7), you can update your game to play the new content.
If you are a fan of Elden Ring, you may have noticed various colosseums around the map that didn’t seem to have a bearing on the story.
Well, now we know what the colosseums were built for, as their doors will be opened from tomorrow.
The upcoming DLC will let players fight other players inside these battle arenas.
This doesn’t have to be one-on-one, as groups of players can team up to take on each other.
There will also be a free-for-all mode that will play out like an Elden Ring battle royale in a very confined space.
The announcement reads: "The Colosseums of Limgrave, Leyndell and Caelid will open their gates, allowing players to engage in battles such as duels, free-for-alls and team fights.”
Fans of Elden Ring have speculated about the point of these colosseums since they were first discovered in games.
Using mods, players were allowed to see inside the building and found the open space that would become the battle arena inside.
This puzzled fans, as there didn’t seem to be a reason to build or cordon off this seemingly empty area.
Players have taken each other on in-game in more informal ways, where you can hunt another player down, defeat them and steal their loot.
Those who are skilled at Elden Ring have also entered other people’s worlds in order to help them with difficult bosses.
The now infamous “Let me solo her” is a player who wears only a pot on his head, and takes on one of the game’s toughest bosses, Malenia, to help out others.
Many players have spent a long time crafting the perfect build to work through Elden Ring’s vast world with ease.
Their skills and preparation will be put to the test when the new DLC launches tomorrow.
