Colosseum is a Free DLC released for Elden Ring on December 7th, 2022. It opens up the three previously inaccessible Colosseums located in Limgrave, Caelid and Leyndell. Players will be able to access them to engage in battle in new and diverse modes. Duels, free-for-alls and team fights are many of the modes available in the Colosseums for up to 6 players.

  • See Patch Notes for details on balancing changes that accompany the Colosseum Arena DLC.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Colosseum Update Information

The Colosseum DLC is free and available on all platforms for all players. Given the changes introduced to balancing in Patch 1.07.1, PvP and PvE balancing are now different, allowing for the arenas to open and introduce new game modes.

Players can expect some additional content with the arenas, but it is expected that it will behave much like the Hollow Arena in Dark Souls 3.

PvP Colosseums - The Colosseum doors open for the first time to reveal a new challenge, unlocking three new arenas. Located in Limgrave, Caelid and Leyndell, each arena comes with its own sets of rules and will be theatres of fierce Player versus Player confrontations.

The Limgrave Colosseum features two modes: United Combat and Combat Ordeal.

  • In United Combat, combatants will be divided into two teams to fight in timed battles with the ability to respawn. Each death and respawn grants points to the adversaries, offering victory to the team with the higher score.
  • In Combat Ordeal, it’s every Tarnished for themselves. Combatants in this mode can also respawn until the timer hits zero, and the one with the most points will prevail as victor.

The Royal Colosseum, located in Leyndell, features Duel Mode. Two Tarnished face off in a duel to the death, and without the ability to respawn.

The Caelid Colosseum features all aforementioned modes with the addition of being able to summon Spirit Ashes to fight by players’ sides. Only combats held at the Caelid Colosseum allow the use of Spirit Ashes.

Join the fight on your own or use group passwords to match up with or against friends, and prove your worth in the Colosseums!

Cosmetics – Five new hairstyles also await players returning to their adventure in ELDEN RING or taking on the new challenges in the Colosseums.

Colosseum Rewards

There are currently no rewards for competing in the Colosseums

 

How to Access the Colosseums

There are three arenas in The Lands Between. Details on how to open the maps and the specifics of the pvp modes will be added when the patch drops. In the meantime, you can see the arenas in our Interactive Elden Ring Map. Players can also use PASSWORDS to play PVP with their friends.

Locations:
  1. Limgrave: Large structure found in the north. Follow the path north of Warmaster's Shack. [Elden Ring Map Link]
  2. Caelid: The most northern part of main Caelid. Can be reached by using the Deep Siofra Well. [Elden Ring Map Link]
  3. Leyndell, Royal Capital: The Colosseum in Leyndell can be seen immediately when you enter the city from East Capital Rampart. [Elden Ring Map Link]

 

Alternatively, players can use the Marika statue found inside the Roundtable Hold, located next to Roderika. After visiting any of the three Colosseums for the first time, players can interact with this statue to be teleported there. Note that any Colosseum that has yet to be visited, won't be available for teleport.

How to Activate the Colosseums in Elden Ring

To activate the Colosseums players need to open the Colosseum's front doors and interact with Marika's Statue located inside. Once this process is completed, players can access the Colosseum from the Roundtable Hold's Marika statue.

Note that to be able to access all Colosseum game modes, players need to complete this process with all 3 Colosseums.

        If you're in united combat and you're versing magic users, disconnect immediately they don't deserve that win.

          there is no item in the game that cant be overcome with a basic understanding of pvp. There is nothing in lyndell which would make you suck any less

            I personally say this is the worst update yet, adds practically nothing to the game, you gain nothing out of it, and now no one invades which was the most fun way to get runes, not to mention the ridiculous nerf that was brought with the update, inescapable frenzy doing half health or less when it has like 3 enemies in the entire game it can be used on, other than players, takes forever to try to land, can be avoided due to point blank range and is easy to be staggered out of it, worthless update all in all, not to mention its not a dlc

              I wish it offered a melee only option. There is always someone throwing magic from across the arena when your squaring off with the others.

                pls do that when a player choose to start matchmaking he will need to build himself an arena stats with only 300 levels that way all players in the arena will always be only lvl 300 then it doesnt matter whats the lvl gap when you start matchmaking

                  This update desperately shouts for a pvp build creator. There are so many things I'd love to try but the game is simply too long to start that many builds. Either make the ancient dragon stones farmable so that we can completely remake our completed characters once we want something new, or give us a PvP character setup for arena usage only that generates the stuff you want

                    This page needs updating. How does the ranking system work exactly? And there is no mention of flask replenishment in united combat. There is also no info on matchmaking ranges and scaling. This needs to be here, because the news articles are useless like always

                      Is there any way to leave a combat if you got matched against a sweaty tryhard that cheesed through half the game to beat lvl 25 players with equipment and 3 buffs from leyndell?

                        Does anybody know if you save scum and redownload your save, your colosseum rank changes? My guess is that if it's like DS3 then the rank banners are stored server-side, so save scumming shouldn't change your rank. Just wanted to see if anybody else knows

                          The new winning strategy is to hang back with a fast roll, then use super high damage magic from a distance while the others melee fight.

                            Honestly best PVP , nobody is toxic and we're all cheering and bowing after cease combat as if to say "gg!!"

                              My first experience with elden ring pvp other than invaders! wanted to be a silly little support/incant class and chose 2v2 team combat, my teammate left and my two opponents used meta weapons & meta ashes.. is this what it's like all the time? I love the colosseum update but I'm afraid to try it again lest I be absolutely obliterated in 2 hits at a crisp 60 vigor

                                It's not a DLC. It's a multiplayer update. Nothing more.

                                A DLC adds actual content, this adds a small game mode, it's not a DLC, it should not be called a "DLC", it should not be praised as a DLC.
                                It's just an updated that should have been released a long time ago.

                                  You have to access the colosseums directly the first time you load in after the update. Each one will have its own play style for Duels, United Combat, or Combat Ordeals. Spirit Ashes are only allowed at the Caelid Colosseum when creating matches AT THAT Colosseum.

                                  Once you have been to a Colosseum it will be available at the new Statue of Marika in the Roundtable Hold next to the fireplace between Roderika and Gideon's first locations. From here you can access all Colosseums and participate in any kind of match in any location.

                                  At the top right of the Combat Setup Screen will be three "Badges" (assuming you've unlocked all three Colosseums) these are your Ranks within each battle type.

                                  I'll leave it up to the community to figure out how high the Ranks go, but you will be matched most of the time with players of the same Rank. There are other criteria for matchmaking similar to Invasion and Co-op but not exactly the same.

                                    Protip for people who think stormhawk deenh will rock: just use the beast incants like gurranq’s stone & they’ll get stunlocked

                                      So, do they raise the player-limit across the board or just for the arena?
                                      I'd really like to see actual fight-clubs return and also the second invader for large ganks.
