A major content update will come to the Elder Scrolls Online this week, probably on Thursday or Friday, said creative director Paul Sage to IGN. The massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) will get its first update in the form of the ?Craglorn? patch.
The Elders Scroll Online is a video game released earlier this year by developer ZeniMax Online Studios and publisher Bethesda Softworks. Craglorn is the game?s first adventure zone targeted at veteran players (those who reached level 50 and above). It is a virtual barren region located between Skyrim, Hammerfell, and Cyrodiil. It promises to bring a new storyline, more dangerous threats, and exceptional rewards to Elder Scrolls Online players.
According to Sage, this patch update is in line with their plan of releasing new content for the game every six weeks or so. With this Craglorn release, Sage declared that they are at the tail-end of that six-week range implying that they are still fairly within schedule. The content update was announced back in early April and should already be available at this time but Zenimax claims that they have been busy with simultaneously fixing bugs within the game and preventing gold spamming.
Sage further said that the second update is already lined up and prepared to go onto public test servers (or PTS). It will be called ?Veteran Dungeon, Crypt of Hearts? and is expected to be released in accordance with their six-week update schedule. ZeniMax informed users that the game?s servers will be offline on May 22 at 8 am EDT to prepare for the roll out of the Craglorn update in North America.
Upon its release Craglorn will be free but, as players already know, Elder Scroll Online requires players to pay a monthly subscription fee worth $15. In early May, ZeniMax disclosed that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game will be delayed for another six months. It can be remembered that they previously revealed Elder Scrolls Online versions for the said gaming consoles will come out in June. The developers did not mention a particular reason for this delay; they only cited ?a series of unique problems? that needs to be addressed before launching the game to those newer consoles.
