It looks like you’ll be fighting in three different colosseums: Leyndell Colosseum, Caelid Colosseum, and Limgrave Colosseum.

Here’s where to find all 3 Colosseums and what modes are available in Elden Ring’s new PVP DLC.

Is the Elden Ring Colosseum Update Free?

The update will be completely free to anyone who owns or purchases Elden Ring. This is not paid DLC but rather just a free update to the game.

When Is the Colosseum Update Coming to Elden Ring?

The update is coming to Elden Ring on Wednesday, December 7th, 2022, worldwide for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms.

Once it has dropped, players will be able to download it and then head to the colosseum to begin fighting.

Fans really won’t have to wait long for this one, as it is right around the corner. Unfortunately, there’s still no word on any DLC coming to Elden Ring, so fans will likely have to wait a little longer for that.
