Elden Ring Multiplayer Has Officially Arrived



Tips for beginners

For those of us who prefer to parry and dodge, rather than engage in FPS action, the Elden Ring multiplayer has arrived. The new feature for the potential Game of the Year candidate released today, December 7 alongside the 1.08 update. Though it introduced other new features to the game, such as new hairstyles and bug fixes, the highlight for many of us is undoubtedly the addition of multiplayer. So let's get into the specifics of how it works.

In the new Elden Ring multiplayer, players can now go toe-to-toe in the Colosseums at Limgrave, Caelid, and Lyndell. While most of us will aim to hold “King's Court” in the 1-v-1 duels, you can also venture into free-for-alls, team battles with up to six players, and even special fights that allow spirit summoning. All of these will surely put your maidenless character and their build to the test against others that dwell in the realm of Elden Ring. Let's just hope it's not too long before the spell and incantation cheese begins.

More From Elden Ring Update 1.08

Aside from the exciting news of Elden Ring multiplayer, update 1.08 added some new content to the game. That is, there are a handful of new hairstyles available in the character editor. Aside from that, many weapons have been balanced. All dagger, axe, and hammer attack speeds increased with a reduced recovery time. The same goes for the two-handed Twinblade, Reaper, Fist, and Claw weapons. Also, the speed of crouching and rolling attacks of Colossal Swords has been increased, which is a huge feature for those of us who did a heavy attack build.

Aside from a lot of increased and decreased speeds on various weapons and actions, update 1.08 doesn't do much other than refine the game. Which we wholeheartedly support. Because, as you know, we always find a way to return to FromSoftware games and relive their infuriatingly tedious adventures. But, at the very least, the Elden Ring multiplayer will be able to shake up the NPCs and boss fights with some much-needed, PvP action.

So, what's your take? Are you going to try out the Elden Ring multiplayer? What PvP mode are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below or over on our socials here!
