The Elder Scrolls Online's first major content update is coming this week

New, 4 comments

The first major content update for massively multiplayer online role-playing game The Elder Scrolls Online is set to launch this Thursday or Friday, developer ZeniMax confirmed with IGN.

The Craglorn update will introduce the Adventure zone of the same name, the first area of its kind for The Elder Scrolls Online. The update will be released around six weeks post-launch — which keeps with ZeniMax's previous targets of releasing new content every four to six weeks.

"I think we’re still at the tail-end of six weeks, I could be wrong there, it’s all a blur," creative director Paul Sage told IGN. "But we’re either in the sixth week or the seventh with this update and I believe our next update is fairly on schedule. When we released we talked about our plans rather than, 'this is exactly what it’s going to be' — we’re generally pretty careful about the language."

Sage added that the second major update — which features the Veteran level dungeon, the Crypt of Hearts — is "lined up" to go into public test servers and will be released "soon" after Craglorn.

Earlier this month, ZeniMax announced that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of The Elder Scrolls Online, initially slated to launch in June, have been delayed six months to rectify a "series of unique problems." For more details on the game, check out Polygon's review.
