ELDEN RING Free Colosseum Update Details

FromSoftware and Bandai Namco send along details about the ELDEN RING patch that went live earlier today. This details the new PvP features and character customization this adds to the action/RPG. There's also a post from Bandai Namco discussing this on Xbox Wire. Here's a Free Colosseum Update Trailer and here's word:
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.

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 RINGor taking on the new challenges in the Colosseums.
