The next Elder Scrolls Online expansion is vampire-centric and partially set in Skyrim

Good combo

The Elder Scrolls Online has come a long way from its scrappy beginnings.

It made the free-to-play move rather quickly in the grand scheme of things, but hasn’t looked back and gained a large enough following to keep it going with a regular content cadence. So far we’ve been whisked away to Tamriel, Morrowind, Summerset and Elsweyr: now we’re venturing out into western Skyrim with the Greymoor expansion.

Revealed last night during an opulent event at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas, Greymoor is decidedly vampire-centric, and will launch on PC on May 18 and consoles on June 2. Billed as a “new year long adventure,” the expansion will get four updates over the course of its lifetime, which includes more story add-ons and dungeons. Zenimax calls this “the largest zone yet,” and the main questline will last you around 30 hours initially, before the updates hit. Harrowstorms are also in, which are a new world event, on top of another 12-player trial/raid, Kyne’s Aegis.

I’m constantly in awe of how much of an “all-stars” project ESO has become, as we haven’t had an Elder Scrolls project this ambitious since 1994’s Arena. You can watch the cinematic reveal below to get a taste of the theme they’re going for.
