The Elden Ring DLC Colosseum update will be released on December 7th 2022, and will add free PVP for all players who already own the game. Past updates have all been released around mid-morning, so we can expect the Colosseum update to be playable at a similar time. Read on for everything we know about the free Elden Ring Colosseum update release date and times, including schedules for PT, ET and GMT players.

The Elden Ring Colosseum update release date has officially been announced as launching on December 7th 2022, meaning that the announcement was only 24 hours prior to the update itself! 

An official tweet from the Elden Ring revealed that the 1.008 update will be downloadable from the following times, though maintenance will take the game offline for roughly one hour following that update to integrate the new information into the servers. 

  • UTC: 9:00 AM
  • ET: 4:00 AM
  • PT: 1:00 AM
  • JST: 18:00 PM
  • CEST: 10:00 AM

Once that offline maintenance is done, everyone should be able to head into the Colosseums around the Lands Between - though speaking of which, make sure you know all the Elden Ring Colosseum locations available to you, and have the best Elden Ring PvP builds ready to go!
