Bethesda has just announced the latest expansion for Elder Scrolls Online. It’s called Summerset, and it’s going to be set on the titular island, the home of the High Elves. It’s going to be released on May 21st on PC, while console players will have to wait until June 5th. The developers have released a couple of trailers – one cinematic, another showing off the expansion in action.
ESO is celebrating a major milestone these days – ten million players. The devs didn’t go into details, so we don’t know whether that’s the number of active players, register accounts or something else entirely. Still, it’s a big, hefty number, and gamers love big, hefty numbers. What’s important for us is the celebratory aspect – it includes a free week, gifts and a dungeon event.
The free play week will be available from November 30th to December 6th, on PC, Mac and Playstation 4. PS4 players will need a PS Plus subscription in order to play. It will include the base game without restrictions (but no Morrowind DLC), letting new player traipse across Tamriel in order to get a feel for the game. New accounts will also get 500 crowns for free, to try out some stuff from the cash store – XP boosters, pets, mounts and such.
Horns of the Reach is finally out on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. After a two week exclusivity period on PC, console players are getting to enjoy the two new dungeons as well. If you’re an ESO Plus subscriber, you’ll get the new content automatically. If not, you’ll have to buy it from the store – it’s being sold for 1500 Crowns.
Horns of the Reach is going to be the latest addition to the growing ESO DLC offering. It will be out in August, and there’s finally some info on what we should expect, thanks to a post on the ESO blog. It will include a couple of dungeons, a brand new game mode and map for Battlegrounds, as well as minor improvements across the board.
An event taking place from July 5th to July 9th will let you try out the ESO Plus subscription for free. In case you’re already a subscriber, you can expect some nice gifts instead. Either way, you’re gonna like it.
Patch v3.0.9 is set to go live on Monday 19th for all PC and Mac Elder Scrolls Online players. The total size of the patch is 116 MB. According to the patch notes, the fixes involve grouping tool and queuing for battlegrounds, while the tweaks and adjustments are mainly meant for Halls of Fabrication Trial.
ESO Morrowind, the latest DLC for Elder Scrolls Online, has been released. PC players have been enjoying the boons of early access for the past two weeks, but now it’s time for their console brethren to join them again. The servers are up worldwide, and everyone can jump in and explore Vvardenfell once more, if they can afford the entry fee.
The Discovery Pack is a preorder bonus for ESO Morrowind. It’s a digital bag of goodies, which includes a handful of exclusive in-game items. Everyone who preorders the expansion will get it, and Bethesda have finally published detailed explanations of each item included, as well as where to find them once you’re in the game.
Bethesda have revealed the exact launch time for ESO Morrowind. The expansion is already in an early access phase on PC, but console players will be getting it on June 6th. The developers have decided to release it simultaneously across the globe, which means some players will be getting it in the evening, while others will start early in the morning.
ESO Morrowind is out – at least the early access version is. This means anyone on PC can start playing now if they preorder a particular version of the game. However, some people who’ve bought it on Steam are having issues. The game doesn’t allow them to access Morrowind content, even though they’ve purchased and downloaded it. There’s a simple solution that may help at least some of them. Those that don’t manage to get it to work will have to contact Steam’s or Bethesda’s support team.
