The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset launched just last week, but Zenimax Online isn’t resting on its laurels. Today during the Bethesda pre-E3 press conference it announced the next two pieces of DLC.

First up is Wolfhunter, a series of new dungeons focusing on werewolves. The next story focused piece of downloadable content will return to Black Marsh. Called Murkmire, it will take players to the homeland of the lizard-like Argonians.

No new footage of the two pieces of DLC was shown during the press conference, but the Elder Scrolls Online team did give an update on the surging player base. They say that the game has so far attracted over 11 million players, with one million added this year alone.
