The Elder Scrolls online ends its Skyrim storyline with a visit to Markarth this November

Markarth is a lovely place. It's got fascinating Dwemer ruins, delightful locals, and no evil shrines hiding in any of its pleasant homes, absolutely not, no siree. If you fancy paying it a visit, this charming Skyrim city is coming to Bethesda's MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online, on November 2nd.The (creatively named) Markarth DLC is the gripping conclusion to the Dark Heart Of Skyrim, ESO's…

Elder Scrolls Online will turn player houses into living dioramas with NPC routines

The Elder Scrolls Online's player homes are instanced areas where you can decorate to your heart's desire. I've been working on my daunting snowglobe house for years it feels like—slowly chucking in more curtains and little candles and whatnot. Even for a snowglobe though, my homestead feels a bit lifeless. I've housed my bear steeds (obviously I have multiple) in the stable outside and my…

The Elder Scrolls Online shows off magical Indiana Jones activities coming in the Greymoor expansion

The Western Skyrim expansion to The Elder Scrolls Online is landing later this month, taking players to the darker side of long-ago Nords. Many parts of the new map are striking familiar, but next to Solitude's Blue Palace is a brand new Antiquarian Guild where you'll learn the art of scrying for ancient valuables and digging them up. Zenimax have outlined the process in a…

The Elder Scrolls Online’s next expansion is delayed but only by a week

As have many game studios during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, Zenimax Online's developers have been working from home. Zenimax previously acknowledged that this could impact the release date for The Elder Scrolls Online's next expansion set in Western Skyrim. They've now piped up to say that they're pushing back its release date, but only by a week. You'll be able to head to the Blue…

The Elder Scrolls Online's next big expansion comes out in May but you can try out its prologue chapter for free. Zenimax Online Studios have also released a new story trailer for the expansion, showing off some vampire baddies and a few vistas from Western Skyrim that you'll recognize if you played The Elder Scrolls V. ESO is hosting a free play period for over…

Here’s all the news and trailers from the Game Awards

Like a heavily-sponsored Santa Claus, the Game Awards swept in last night and left us a pile of presents to unwrap. If you did the smart thing and slept through the event, you'll have missed a bunch of new announcements. Alice O and Graham did some amazing work in writing up as much as they could as it happened, but a few sly games snuck…

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…

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…

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 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, but…

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, it's…

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 when…

The Elder Scrolls Online’s Horns of the Reach DLC is out next month

Horns of the Reach, the minotaur-themed DLC pack for The Elder Scrolls Online [official site], will be coming out next month, Bethesda have announced. The DLC will add two dungeons to the MMO as well as new items, enemies and companions. There's no word on pricing, yet – just that it will be free to ESO Plus members and that it will be available on the in-game crown…

Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is scratching that itch

I have been cynical from afar, which is a polite way of saying I've been privately thinking 'aargh, kill it with fire' about The Elder Scrolls Online's [official site] massively multiplayer recreation of revered singleplayer roleplaying game Morrowind. I didn't want to be a snob, but the pairing of an MMO hamster wheel with the high watermark of Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series read to me…

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…

How Morrowindy is Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind?

I will admit to a certain wateriness in my eyes when I heard the music. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was and is, I believe, almost more a state of mind than it is a roleplaying game. A strange and desolate place, built upon a foundation of distrust, it is almost aggressively lonely. As an RPG, the precursor to Oblivion and Skyrim is all over…
