Elden Ring has had 3 unopenable colosseum doors since release. The mysterious areas have gamers scratching their heads and thinking if they’re some clues to future DLC.
Since the colosseum doors appear in 3 different regions, players have speculated that the strange spots are challenge areas. Several modders have been hacking the game to get into these restricted parts of the map, and they’ve found tons of multiplayer content. These colosseums are so highly detailed that players are guessing about future Elden Ring PvP gameplay.
YouTuber Garden of Eyes wasn’t the first to upload a video about these secret areas, but their post goes into significant detail about the coliseums in Leyndell, Northern Limgrave, and Caelid. All of these areas are completely built out and even feature colliders, which determine whether or not your character clips through specific objects. In the video, you can see the modder’s Tarnished break many jars by running into them. At the end of all the hallways, you can see a fully produced colosseum with hundreds of seats. If the Lands Between weren’t a bare wasteland, it would have been an excellent place to reveal your boss-killing skills.
The Northern Limgrave colosseum is arguably the first location that tipped players off about the significance of the doors. Outside, you can find an NPC who bemoans the unopening portal. Modder Garden of Eyes was able to find a Duelist’s Furled Finger, which enables PvP content, in front of the door. They were also invaded by the Recusant Henricus while searching, so be cautious if you’re thinking about poking around the door. You can battle up to three Duelist Knights of the Great Jar near the Caelid colosseum, even if you’re not hacking.
