The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited journeys to 'Orsinium' in November

Bethesda and Zenimax have offered the first details on what users of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited can expect from the game's next expansion, Orsinium.


The city of Orsinium has been under construction since the beginning of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. And while it will remain that way in the near future, it's now time to actively help in its restoration, thanks to a new ESO expansion of the same name. Today, Bethesda and Zenimax are offering some new details on some of the content that players can expect to see.

The Orsinium expansion will open up greater Wrothgar for exploration, allowing players to venture through the ancient Orc capital. There are plots brewing in the area from various factions, giving players a chance to meet new allies and take on new enemies across 20 hours of content. Among the dungeon offerings include Old Orsinium and Rkindaleft, both of which will be open to solo and group play. Adventurers can earn new gear, styles, and rewards inspired by Wrothgar's rich history.

A new solo arena challenge called the Maelstrom Arena will also open up. Nine combat rings will be available across two difficulty levels. Those that manage to run the gauntlet and survive will receive great rewards.

PC users with access to the Public Test Server will get access to Orsinium today. As for everyone else on PC, they'll have to wait until November 2. Xbox One users will get it a few weeks later on November 17, with PS4 users getting it the day after. Orsinium will be free to anyone with an active ESO Plus membership, but everyone else can pick it up for 3,000 crowns from the ESOTU Crown Store.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
