Skyrim returning to The Elder Scrolls Online with Greymoor expansion

Skyrim returning to The Elder Scrolls Online with Greymoor expansion

21st January 2020 0 By Jordan Heal

ZeniMax has finally unveiled details surrounding the Dark Heart of Skyrim expansions for The Elder Scrolls Online.

Last year, eGaming Desk reported the news that the beloved region would be coming to the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).

The news was broken at The Game Awards 2019 but since then fans have had relatively little information, leaving many to speculate on what 2020 will bring.

Greymoor, as it has since been called, is part of the ‘Dark Heart of Skyrim‘ campaign which will span across the entire year. It will be among the earliest entries of the four expansions released in 2020.

At some point during the first quarter of this year, the Harrowstone DLC will introduce two new dungeons that shape the initial narrative for the Greymoor expansion.

Skyrim was first introduced to the world back in 2011 when The Elder Scrolls V was released. This new story will take place 900 years prior to the events of the original.

It is believed the new expansion will encompass areas fans are already acquainted with such as Solitude and Blackreach.

It is anticipated the Greymoor narrative will add more than 30 hours of new content, though considering the sheer scale of The Elder Scrolls Online, it is likely additional side activities will keep players enthralled for much longer.

It will also add a new ‘Antiquities’ system which provides users with treasure hunts to obtain unique trophies and furnishing across the entire world, not just Skyrim.

Alongside this, the Vampire skill line will also receive a tweak to help re-balance it.

Harrowstorms will also make an introduction. These will serve as additional public activities alongside the vanilla game’s Dolmens or Elsweyr’s dragon hunts.

The final two DLC packs have an expected release for Q3 and Q4 respectively, though details still remain scarce.
