Elden Ring Dataminer makes the inaccessible area of ​​the Coliseum work

An Elden Ring dataminer has managed to actually get the inaccessible content of the game’s coliseum to work.

Back in March, Souls game hacker Lance McDonald managed to peek into the game’s locked Coliseum locations and speculated they were being used for DLC. Now, YouTuber Sekiro Dubi has uploaded a video that appears to reveal the Colosseum’s hidden sites of mercy, place names, and even fighting NPCs.

Sekiro Dubi used a map editor called DSMapStudio to effectively break into the Colosseum in the Leyndell area, see what was cut, and then put it all back together, revealing that developer FromSoftware apparently intended to use it for actual gladiatorial combat.

The video shows a huge lion fighting a knight in the coliseum whose placeholder names were listed simply as “Old Lion of Arena” and “Gladiator Large” respectively.

Sekiro Dubi also discovers an unnamed Site of Mercy in the area, and searching through the Elden Ring’s network test files reveals a Stormveil Coliseum, meaning this is likely just the Leyndell Coliseum.

A second, unfinished Point of Mercy is located further within what was internally (and therefore unofficially) referred to as the “Return Point Bonfire Reception Desk”, with bonfires being the Dark Souls equivalent of a Point of Mercy.

Despite the new information, it’s still unclear if the coliseums that dot the world of Elden Ring are an abandoned part of the game that just didn’t make it into the final cut, or if they are early versions of a potential DLC acts.

The Limgrave Colosseum is guarded by an NPC intruder and another NPC sitting outside asks why they can’t get inside. The Ritual Shield Talisman, obtainable outside of the Leyndell Colosseum, states that the arenas are remnants of a bygone era, showing that FromSoftware definitely had a story in mind for them.

DLC that takes the player back in time is also a regular feature of FromSoftware games. The original Dark Souls does just that in the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, Bloodborne follows suit with The Old Hunters, and while it’s not DLC, Sekiro also features extensive sections set in the past.
