Elden Ring update 1.07 has caused quite a stir on the internet, with comments about the Elden Ring DLC and features abounding in the update code. While the open-world game hasn’t had any of that confirmed by developer FromSoftware, new datamined details point to some sort of Elden Ring arena DLC in the future.
The Elden Ring PvP arenas and other coliseum-type battle DLC have been talked about since the game launched earlier this year, but now more animations and details found in the 1.07 update code seem to suggest that FromSoftware at least he has worked on it at some point, even if they don’t end up releasing it.
As Elden Ring data miner Sekiro Dubi noted on Twitter, Elden Ring update 1.07 added “four new parameters for four new text banners [like the YOU DIED screen]” to the role-playing game. These include “Start Game”, “Win”, “Draw” and “Lose”.
The most popular theory is that the three inaccessible coliseum structures in the Elden Ring are located in Caelid, Limgrave. and Leyndell, are all part of some kind of PvP experience. Why are they in the game if they are inaccessible? Without any other support, it may have something to do with the cut content, but Sekiro Dubi’s findings could point to its use.
Sekiro Dubi also adds that there are some new Colosseum map, asset, and texture files, but that the textures are not working due to a lack of additional files for them, which could point to a DLC inclusion.
It should be noted that obviously these DLC plans (if they still exist) could have changed, so PvP play in these locations may not be on the cards, or at least not in the same capacity. Sekiro Dubi also shows two monsters fighting in one of the arenas on his Twitter, saying that “there is a code in the game to control those two creatures. The lion would specifically give you a Shadow Smithing Stone.”
Again, these ideas may not match FromSoftware Elden Ring’s current DLC plans, but all of these additional hints coming with the 1.07 update patch could indicate that they’re gearing up for some sort of announcement.
You can find more details of Sekiro Dubi in his Twitter bill. We’ve also collected much of the early information from the Elden Ring update 1.07 patch notes, including reference to two new maps in the update. FromSoftware also said that the Elden Ring update 1.07 separates damage scaling for the main game and PvP multiplayer, which could point to a separate PvP-focused mode in the future.
