Developer FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have released a free update for Elden Ring,  launching today. And with it, the doors of the previously locked Colosseums have swung wide open, inviting players to venture back to the Lands Between with all new gameplay modes.

There are a total of three Colosseums, each with their own ruleset for the multiplayer matches. Here is a breakdown.

Limgrave Colosseum

Found in the path north of the Warmaster’s Shack.

  • United Combat: Two opposing teams compete to collect points. Upon death, players respawn and rejoin the match.
  • Combat Ordeal: Players fight individually until the player with the highest elimination points score is declared the winner.

Royal Colosseum

Near the West Capital Rampart Site of Grace. 

  • This Colosseum has one mode: Duel. Duel Mode entails 1 vs. 1 battles to the death, no respawns.

Caelid Colosseum

Found in northern Caelid. 

  • This Colosseum features all the above modes, only with Spirit Ashes (the game’s summoning mechanic) enabled to add an extra dynamic to the matches.

Released back in February to universal critical acclaim, Elden Ring is one of the biggest games to come out in 2022, and thus far has sold over 17 million copies worldwide. It was created by Hidetaka Miyazaki and co-written by famed fantasy author George R. R. Martin.
