Reforge Orsinium in Elder Scrolls Online’s new DLC, due in November

    
67

Landing on The Elder Scrolls Online’s public test server today is the game’s next DLC, set in Orsinium, the ancestral home of the Orcs. Says Bethsoft,

Orsinium, the ancestral home of the Orcs, is being rebuilt deep in the Wrothgar Mountains, and King Kurog has sent out a call across Tamriel for intrepid adventurers to assist in its rebirth. The latest DLC game pack for the award-winning The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited takes you to the mountains of Wrothgar, and to the Orc capital itself, to unravel plots and counter-plots, and encounter all-new enemies and allies. Orsinium, ESOTU’s largest game pack to date, features a colossal new zone to explore, new quests and mysteries, a new single-player arena, new public dungeons, and much more!

The studio promises over 20 hours of content and a staggered launch: PC/Mac on November 2nd, Xbox One on November 17th, and PlayStation 4 on November 18th. If you already have an ESO Plus membership, the DLC is included, but if not, you can snap it up for 3000 crowns in the cash shop. Check out the new trailer below!

DavidBarnard Tandor Shadewalker Nice personal abuse, making my initial point for me. I’ve been playing the PC version since launch. Find me somebody, anybody, who was expecting Orsinium to go on the PTS last week and to be launched at the beginning of November. I know how long they’ve been working on it, but nobody expected it to follow on so close behind Imperial City.

Tandor Shadewalker wow dude, you’ve seriously drank the KoolAid!  you must be some ignorant console peasant.  you obviously have no idea how long ago this content was announced, worked on and most probably finished, yet held back.

Koshelkin Roke this and Imp City are content that was held back from loyal pc subscribers who supported this game long before f2p and console release.  heck, Imp City had a playable demo that community members got to play at the Guild Summit hosted by ZOS.  don’t believe anything ZOS db’s tell you.  they’re a pos, greedy, dishonest company.

NobleNerd Tandor Shadewalker  Yes, and actually I really like the idea of releasing a PVP portion, then a month and a half later a PvE portion.
It gives the PvP players a chance to engage the PvE players a little, without really forcing the PvE players off into the main PvP stuff constantly.
That said, it will be the next few sets that are the real test.  These were probably in development from before the console launch.  IC did some solid things for allowing PvE players to get activities done without too much PvP… I am guardedly looking forward to seeing what else they can manage to throw our way.

Tandor Shadewalker NobleNerd They did prove they could release IC on time, so it is no surprise that they are working hard to hit the quarterly dates (at least from me).

nahenway Hurbster Ummmm… we must be playing a completely different MMO then. My ESO does not perform that way. The shadows are very nice, along with the “god rays” and lighting.

NobleNerd Tandor Shadewalker Indeed, but few thought that would actually happen. Even those that did imagined for the most part that it would come nearer the end of the quarter given the very recent release of Imperial City. Let’s not pretend that anyone thought for a moment that Orsinium was going to be launched on the PTS yesterday and go live at the beginning of November.

tobascodagama groo the wanderer What you have to remember is public dungeons are not like group dungeons they are the dungeons anyone an enter at anytime . Even though there are two of these most people in general will only do them once to get a skyshard and kill whatever boss is in them . If you factor in this and that studios usually overestimate the amount of time it will take the average player to complete the content it will amount to 20 hours at most . That just leaves a repeatable pvp arena that in reality might give more than 20 hours content to some players who enjoy instanced pvp . 

I suppose it depends on how into this game you are as to whether its worth it to you . For me its too much money for too little contnt . I can get more for less elsewhere .

Tandor Shadewalker It’s launching on the next quarter, so on time like they said they were going to do. THey stated they would launch a DLC each quarter.

tobascodagama groo the wanderer   True, but your mileage may vary… the pace at which a person clears content is very flexible.
