Explore The Elder Scrolls Online for free ’til next Wednesday

As Fallout 76 keeps toeing the line on whether it's a "proper" MMORPG, it's easy to forget that Bethesda have already kept a big online world kicking about for years. The Elder Scrolls Online is still quite happily letting dungeoneers plunder Tamriel for new loot, opening the doors to the Elsweyr cat kingdom just this year. Until next Wednesday, TESO has waived its entry fee,…

The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr ventures into early access today

The latest Elder Scrolls Online expansion, Elsweyr, isn't officially out until June 4th, but Bethesda are letting PC players brave the cat-and-dragon infested jungle expansion two weeks early, starting today, to discover any bugs before the console folks arrive. On top of the usual new places to see and dungeons to delve, Elsweyr gives players a chance to dig deep into the weird lore of…

Morrowind goes free today to celebrate The Elder Scrolls turning 25

To celebrate a quarter-century of Elves, Daedra and cat-people with bafflingly complex lore, Bethesda are giving away The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind today (March 25th) only, so snap it up quickly here. You'll need a Bethesda.net account and their launcher to grab the game, too. A bit of a hassle, but you're getting a sprawling adventure through a deeply alien corner of Tamriel, filled with…

The Elder Scrolls Online heads to Elsweyr, land of cats and dragons

Never you mind that leaks confirmed it last week - Bethesda have announced that The Elder Scrolls Online's next major expansion is Elsweyr, desert homeland of the feline Khajiit. It's a part of the Elder Scrolls world that I've always wanted to take a ramble around, though it seems have a dragon problem at this point in the timeline. On the plus side, that means…

New Elder Scrolls Online expansion brings back the dragons (and also cats)

The Elder Scrolls Online is both an attempt to further the Elder Scrolls formula into something more dynamic and living, and a game that often seems dependent on nostalgia for its continued existence. 2017's Morrowind expansion took us back to Elder Scrolls' finest hour, last year's Summerset was our first return to a land not seen since Arena, the original Scrolls game, and next, here…

The Elder Scrolls Online wades into Murkmire today with new DLC

The Elder Scrolls Online has a lot going for it these days, but probably the most exciting part is exploring the weirder fringe regions of its world. Today's new DLC release, Murkmire, fits the bill, with dense marshlands full of flesh-eating plants, overgrown temples and lizard-folk living in and around the brackish waters. While perhaps not as strange as Morrowind's mushroom-laden volcanic realms, it's an…

The Elder Scrolls Online’s Wolfhunter DLC is baying for blood next Monday

While QuakeCon may be all about bunny-hops and exploding demons, it's a Bethesda event, so there's always a little something for Elder Scrolls fans in there too. The Elder Scrolls Online has been doing well for itself this past year, with two chunky expansions providing a lot more to do in its now-fully level-scaled world. The next minor piece of DLC, Wolfhunter, is out on…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset is out, definitely isn’t set in the West Country

You lot already knew there was a place in Tamriel called Summerset, didn't you? I didn't. I'm finding out now with the release of The Elder Scrolls Online's latest expansion, and the idea of encountering "shining cities, vibrant forests, tropical lagoons, coral caves, mysterious ruins and more" in a certain British county is amusing me an unduly amount. I don't know about most of that,…

The Elder Scrolls Online’s next expansion explores High Elven lands

Back in my day, if a game tanked, that was it. You just shrugged and moved on, but these days? Whippersnappers keep on fixing things. Improvin' stuff, as if the medium was malleable or something. After FFXIV, The Elder Scrolls Online is probably the next strongest comeback that an MMO has made. Completely replacing its business model and progression systems after a very wonky initial launch,…

The Elder Scrolls Online launches week-long free weekend

If the news outside of the game-o-sphere wasn't enough to convince you we're living in a post-truth world, then maybe this will change your mind. The Elder Scrolls Online is launching a free weekend that starts from today and ends on December 6th, but apparently that doesn't mean you can take every day until Wednesday as a day off. I've checked. TESO was pretty shonky…

Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind unlock times announced

If you're of a certain age and disposition, one of your main concerns might be: when can I return to Morrowind and pretend the past fifteen years never happened? Steady on there, creaky clogs. You might know The Elder Scrolls Online [official site] will launch its Morrowind expansion on Tuesday June 6th and you might have seen ZeniMax Online muttering about launch times but wait!…

The Elder Scrolls Online launches week-long trial

The Elder Scrolls Online [official site], the other MMORPG with orcs and elves, has just launched a week-long full-game free trial. I know, I too half-remember it going free-to-play but no, it has only dropped mandatory subscriptions. I've little interest in the world of The Elder Scrolls myself, our boy Brendy was not a fan when it came out, and Cobbo last year found it…

The Elder Scrolls Online: Wherever you hang your cheesewheel, that’s your home

Homeownership is now possible in Tamriel thanks to The Elder Scrolls Online's [official site] first chunky DLC hit of 2017 (that's a phrase, right?). The free update has already landed in the PC version of the MMO and offers your characters the ability to buy real estate from apartments to islands. The only person I can think of off the top of my head who…

The Elder Scrolls Online is going to Morrowind in June

When The Elder Scrolls Online [official site] first slunk into the world I was not impressed. At a preview event, I was reticent, and at release I was still unconvinced. The MMO shackles just didn’t fit with the Elder Scrolls I have always known. But Zenimax have been hacking away at the RPG’s extraneous limbs and replacing them with whole new ones, which has reportedly…

The Elder Scrolls Online Gets Dark Brotherhood DLC

If I'm honest I'd totally forgotten that The Elder Scrolls Online [official site] is a thing that still exists. ZeniMax haven't, though. In fact they've just launched the latest DLC for the MMORPG: Dark Brotherhood. If you have even a passing familiarity with Elder Scrolls games you've probably worked out that the Dark Brotherhood stuff is about trying to join the franchise's guild of assassins:

The Elder Scrolls: Legends Delayed Into 2016

As the end of the year approaches, a whole load of games optimistically slated to launch "in 2015" are about to become formally late. Such as The Elder Scrolls: Legends [official site], Bethesda's free-to-play CCG. When they announced it at E3, it was due to launch this year. Now it's not. In other news about The Elder Scrolls facing a tough time aping Blizzard, The…

The Elder Scrolls Online’s First DLC Visits The Imperial City

Now that The Elder Scrolls Online [official site] has dropped its subscription fees (that came only eleven months after launch), it's getting settled into typical subscription-free MMORPG practises. TESO's first "DLC game pack", The Imperial City, will launch on August 31st. It'll bring new lines of story, more quests, new areas, new dungeons, extra monsters, extra craftable items... you know, DLC stuff.
