Elden Ring data miner Sekiro Dubi digs these further huge, inaccessible arena Scattered in Lands Between, first highlighted by soul hacker Lance McDonald. Sekiro Dubi restores an elegant site and some enemies scheduled to be in the area, thus gaining a better understanding of their intended use.
in Reims original videoAfterwards, he walked through the locked entrance of Ringgrave Arena with a free cam tool and looked inside, which contained spacious seating, a bunker for fighting, and the opposite side leading to the lower belly of the gym. elevator.
Sekiro Dubi dug up the files related to the “Leyndell Colosseum” to reimplement the normal game’s internals next to the unused Grace Site. The entrance to the gym is lit by torches and features an altar topped by some sort of fossil-like rock formation.
Sekiro Dubi also shows the arena itself, where the Lion Guardian (one of the sword lions from Redmane or Castle Sol) battles Grave Warden, a gladiator-like foe found outside the Leyndell Arena and throughout the catacombs boss world.
It is unclear what the purpose of these arenas is. Much of the speculation has centered on their potential as PvP arenas, similar to Dark Souls: Arturias of the Abyss or Ashes of Ariandel in Dark Souls 3. Given that they feature NPC opponents at some point, I could also see them being used in boss rush modes like Sekiro.
Sekiro Dubi noted that Ritual Shield Talisman’s item description documents arena battles that took place in the scene in the past, which could suggest that these arenas may appear in time-travel sequences such as Artorias of the Abyss or the Ringed City DLC.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to see if Arena will affect FromSoft’s future plans for Elden Ring.
