Elden Ring patch 1.07 has shared a new look at FromSoftware’s plans for the game’s first DLC, as a recent update has revealed more details about the elusive Colosseums.

In March, data miner Lance McDonald peered into a currently inaccessible area of ​​Elden Ring, which depicted a grandiose colosseum. This first look at From Software’s DLC plans sparked a discussion about a possible PvP-focused expansion within Caelid’s walls.

The developers have been quiet about the next steps for Elden Ring content since its release in February.

However, it seems that the developers are making quiet preparations as a new update has revealed more information about the Colosseums.

Elden Ring patch 1.07 reveals new PvP colosseum details

In patch 1.07 for Elden Ring, popular dataminer and modder Sekiro Dubi pointed out several new additions that hint at DLC.

Dubi noted that the developers added “new Colosseum map files, assets, textures” to the game.

Unfortunately the “textures don’t work due to lack of DLC files” at the moment. While the update also included additions such as “new hair” and “subtle map changes”, Dubi managed to capture visuals that directly tackle PvP scenarios.

The data miner explained that “Elden Ring v1.07 added 4 new parameters for 4 new text banners to be displayed on the screen. They correspond to unused text from 1.0, as shown in the video.”

“I believe they are related to Colosseums, suggesting the shape of a Gauntlet. 1.07 text only says Enemy Defeated,” added Dubi.

In Dubi’s video, we can see them in a colosseum, while various banners appear. More importantly, specific banners indicate “start match” and “you win”, which would suggest that 1v1 fights are very likely.

In addition to these new files, Ray Tracing support was also mentioned, a feature that many players have been asking for.

From Software has not yet announced a release date for Elden Ring’s first DLC. Until then, stay tuned for the latest news and guides.
