FromSoftware has announced DLC for Elden Ring through a trailer. Starting tomorrow, players will be able to compete against each other in multiple colosseums scattered across the in-game map.

The free update focuses on PvP (Player versus Player) and is styled the ‘Colosseum Update’. A press release surrounding the new DLC states that “the colosseums of Limgrave, Leyndell, and Caelid will open their gates, allowing players to engage in different types of combat such as duels, free-for-alls, and team battles.”

In the new trailer released this afternoon by Bandai Namco, we first see how two characters battle each other. Moments later, they both summon Spirit Ashes turning the fight into a two-on-two battle. Later on, a three-on-three battle is depicted, which was not possible in Elden Ring before.

That there is now DLC with colosseum battles is no surprise. Data miners already discovered unused arenas in the game’s data files in March.

Incidentally, there is speculation that more DLC is coming to Elden Ring. For example, there are rumors that a major game expansion will be announced during The Game Awards, which will take place on Thursday night. That would explain why FromSoftware releases this DLC right before the show, rather than after.

Elden Ring was released in February this year and is considered a favorite for the Game of the Year award.
