An Elden Ring dataminer discovered several unused text popups in the game files that seem to indicate a PvP ranking system.
The popups were discovered by @StrayKurtis and appear to be part of a progression system linked to the various factions in Elden Ring. It says “Bloody Finger Rank Advanced”, “Hunter Rank Advanced”, and more.
It’s unclear if it’s a canceled mechanic or if the lyrics belong to an upcoming DLC, but the Elden Ring community is speculating.
#ELDENRING datamine fun fact: There are several unused text popups related to the various online interactions(invasions, coop, etc). Perhaps there are some sort of ranking systems in the works? pic.twitter.com/FTurtshwS2

Elden Ring has improved FromSoftware’s previous mechanics and tried to make the game clearer for new players. It is therefore possible that this PvP will become a better version of the well-known mechanic.
Another theory is that the PvP ranks for the inaccessible Elden Ring are colosseums. Another data miner revealed that there are Sites of Grave and names of locations and NPCs. Some community members think this is connected to a DLC that is PvP oriented.
The PvP already exists in Elden Ring, but there is no specific place to fight yet.
FromSoftware hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but speculation continues. It seems obvious that additional content is on the way given the success of Elden Ring† In addition, FromSoftware a name when it comes to releasing DLC†
Elden Ring had a great release in February and people are already embracing it in bizarre ways like via Fisher Price Toysthe Nintendo Switch Ring Fit controller and someone made a VR version of the game.
Elden Ring has already been completed in less than seven minutes by a speedrunner, someone did it without taking or dealing damage and fans are also modding away.
