THE ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE INTRODUCES GREYMOOR, THIS YEAR’S MASSIVE NEW CHAPTER SET IN WESTERN SKYRIM AND BLACKREACH, AND THE YEAR-LONG “DARK HEART OF SKYRIM” STORYLINE

Explore iconic Western Skyrim locations, plunge the perilous depths of Blackreach, vanquish Vampires, and more in this year-long interconnected story


Today, in front of a live audience of ESO players and fans at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas and on Twitch, ZeniMax Online Studios took the wraps off their 2020 plans for the award-winning online RPG The Elder Scrolls Online. There’s a lot to unpack here so stick with me, but here are the highlights:

• SKYRIM LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE: 2020’s Chapter, Greymoor, is set to launch in May and June and brings new zones to ESO: Western Skyrim, the frozen homeland of the Nords, and the long-forgotten Blackreach cavern—expanded from what players originally explored in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim—to fight sinister monsters while unlocking the secret of the Dark Heart of Skyrim.

• A NEW YEAR-LONG ADVENTURE AWAITS: The Dark Heart of Skyrim is a year-long interconnected adventure spanning four updates in 2020: the prologue quest (free to all players) and Harrowstorm DLC dungeon pack, the Greymoor Chapter, the Q3 DLC dungeon pack, and the Q4 Story DLC. While this is one of The Elder Scrolls’ darkest stories yet, there are still heroes that spark hope: returning from the base game are Lyris Titanborn and House Ravenwatch who will take the fight to those that stalk the night.

• NEW WORLD EVENTS AND GAMEPLAY SYSTEMS: The Greymoor Chapter brings new world events and gameplay systems. Group up with fellow players to quell the magical Harrowstorms terrorizing the land. Additionally, players will travel beyond Western Skyrim and across Tamriel to recover lost artifacts with the new Antiquities system; scry the location of ancient relics and excavate them to uncover Tamriel's hidden history and unlock powerful and fun rewards for all types of players!

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor will release for PC and Mac on May 18, and Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 2. Learn more about the game, pre-order bonuses, and Collector’s Editions at https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/joinus.

THIS YEAR’S INCREDIBLE NEW CHAPTER – ESO: GREYMOOR
Set more than 900 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Western Skyrim isn’t exactly how players may remember it. An ancient vampire lord leading a terrifying army of vampires, witches, and werewolves, has twisted a once idyllic land into a dark and sinister one.

Greymoor is packed-full of new stories, adventures, and challenges, including:

• A gigantic new zone, Western Skyrim, and within it, the deep and dark Blackreach cavern. Combined, this is ESO’s largest zone yet.
• An epic main story quest line with around 30 hours of new adventures that ties into the Dark Heart of Skyrim year-long adventure, plus tons of new side quests and exploration
• Antiquities: this new system features two skill lines and will challenge players to travel beyond Western Skyrim and across Tamriel to recover lost artifacts to uncover the world’s hidden history and unlock powerful and fun rewards for all types of players
• A challenging new 12-player Trial: Kyne’s Aegis
• New World Events: Harrowstorms
• A vast amount of unique Delves, Public Dungeons, and standalone quests, as well as a host of performance updates and quality-of-life improvements

another nice looking cinematic, although I'm a bit numbed out from these action-centric trailers, then again I'm not the teenage target audience anymore

The games are mostly disappointing.

    jmd749 @docLEXfisti:Let's not get carried away now.lol PCs hold back gaming? an SSD of a certain size can be one of the game's requirements. I have a samsung 2TB NVMe SSD with 3.5GB/s read/write in my PC atm (1 Day ago)

    GrimThorne @docLEXfisti: hindering? No. But Series X could become the lead development platform. PC gamers are already using SSDs (1 Day ago)
