Elden Ring Fans Think DLC Could Include a PvP Mode

Elden Ring fans are debating the meaning of several oddly locked parts of The Lands Between, with many concluding that they will be used for PvP or Boss Rush DLC expansions (although the latter seems far less likely).

Warning: This article contains minor spoilers about Elden Ring locations.

It’s entirely possible that you’ve stumbled across one or more of the Colosseums in The Lands Between and have subsequently been a bit puzzled as to why you can’t get inside. The game’s starting area, Limgrave, includes the Colosseum guarded by an NPC Invader that you need to defeat in order to obtain two multiplayer items. However, the Colosseum itself remains closed, with a ghostly figure sitting outside wondering why they can’t get inside. Lance McDonald, the FromSoft data miner, now released a video showing what is inside this Colosseum, which is a fully realized area with an arena, that stands for spectators and elevators. Coliseums can also be found in several parts of the map.

While some see it as just cut content,

Many (including McDonald’s) suggested that these areas would be used for future DLCs. Many see this as a natural way to add a full-fledged PvP mode to the game. While PvP invasions are a working part of the game, there is currently no dedicated area where players can test their strength against each other like in other Souls games.

Others suggest that these areas could be used for a Boss Rush mode,

Allowing you to replay fights against the many Elden Ring bosses. However, this seems far less likely given what producer Yasuhiro Kitao previously said GamerBraves that the team has no plans to add such a feature at this time. You can expect any possible DLC expansion to arrive in at least a few months, but given how huge Elden Ring is, you’ll probably have enough to keep you busy for a while.
