‘The Elder Scrolls Online’ gameplay: 2 new PvE dungeons arrive in ‘Harrowstorm’ DLC on Feb. 24 along with Update 25
The month of February is going to be huge for avid fans of “The Elder Scrolls Online.” They have two major things to look forward to, including the “Harrowstorm” DLC that will arrive with new dungeons. Update 25 is also scheduled to go live in the coming weeks.
‘The Elder Scrolls Online: Harrowstorm’ release date, content: What to expect
“Harrowstorm” is part of the year-long “The Elder Scrolls Online” content roadmap titled the “Dark Heart of Skyrim” that was unveiled last month. At the same event, the game’s next chapter, called “Greymoor,” was also announced.
As for “The Elder Scrolls Online: Harrowstorm,” it is practically a pack of new dungeons -- Icereach and Unhallowed Grave -- that will give players two new environments for some PvE action within Skyrim. The DLC will also serve as the first of many content Bethesda has planned for 2020.
There are differences in the nature of the missions in each dungeon in “The Elder Scrolls Online: Harrowstorm,” but they both feature monster enemies and boss fights. In Icereach, located on the northern coast of Skyrim, players will have to tackle a supernatural storm caused by a power originating from an island described as home to “powerful coven of witches.” It is then the players’ task to stop the storm by defeating the witches.
The Unhallowed Grave, on the other hand, is ransacked by thieves to find “an ancient power that has remained imprisoned for centuries.” This dungeon will require a little more investigation before ultimately stopping the grave’s previous invaders and stop whatever they plan to do with the power they found in it. “The Elder Scrolls Online: Harrowstorm” will be released on Feb. 24 for PC players, but those using Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will have to wait until Mar. 10.
‘The Elder Scrolls Online’ patch: What Update 25 will fix for all ‘ESO’ players
Whether or not players are getting the “The Elder Scrolls Online: Harrowstorm” DLC, they will receive the Update 25 on Feb. 24 as well. The performance improvements in this patch appear to be focused on enhancing the framerates for PC and console players.
Another interesting update arriving in “The Elder Scrolls Online” this month will tweak the game client. One of the reported benefits would be a smaller storage requirement for “ESO.” This aspect of the update will require players to re-download the game client.
