Elden Ring Dataminer finds evidence of a PvP ranking system

An Elden Ring dataminer found several unused text popups in the game files that appear to allude to a PvP ranking system.

The pop-ups were found by Twitter users @StrayKurtis and appear to be part of a progression system tied to various Elden Ring factions called Blood Finger Rank Advanced, Hunter Rank Advanced, and so on.

There’s currently no way to tell if these are from a scrapped mechanic or if they might be linked to an upcoming DLC ​​piece, but the Elden Ring community is already speculating wildly.

Previous games from developer FromSoftware, including Bloodborne and Dark Souls, had a somewhat blurry PvP ranking system, where defeating invading players granted faction-specific rewards that could be traded to increase your rank and eventually get rare items or unlocks .

Just as Elden Ring has evolved previous FromSoftware mechanics (and made an effort to make things clearer for new players), it’s possible that this ranking system is a more complete version of that previous mechanic.

Another popular theory ties these PvP ranks to the inaccessible Elden Ring coliseums found on the map. Previous hacks seem to indicate that these areas appear to be combat-heavy (as Coliseums usually are). A dataminer managed to get one of the arenas working and found hidden tombs, place names, and even fighting NPCs that some community members believe are connected to a PvP-focused DLC.

While PvP is already a feature in Elden Ring through its invasion mechanics, there is no dedicated arena for players to fight in.

However, FromSoftware has yet to confirm anything – even the existence of any sort of DLC – leaving fans with speculation in the meantime. However, given the success of Elden Ring and FromSoftware’s tendency to release DLC, it would be surprising if no additional content were on the way.

Elden Ring has proven to be a cultural phenomenon since its release in February, with players finding a ton of different ways to interact with the game.

People have played it using a Fisher Price toy, the Nintendo Switch Ring Fit controller, and someone even made a working VR version of the game.

Elden Ring was also beaten by a speedrunner in less than seven minutes without taking or causing any damage, and fans are also modding every other entertainment franchise imaginable into the game.

In our 10/10 review, IGN said, “Elden Ring is a massive iteration of what FromSoftware began with the Souls series, bringing its unrelentingly challenging combat to an incredible open world that gives us the freedom to create our own path.” Select.”
