Bethsoft has just announced that the Orsinium DLC pack is now available for The Elder Scrolls Online’s PC and Mac players. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players can purchase the DLC next week. ZeniMax Creative Director Rich Lambert heralded the DLC with a message to players:

This is by far our largest DLC to date, and one of the largest zones we’ve ever built. There is a huge amount of content to discover with tons of new quests, group bosses, delves, public dungeons, new items, and of course the PVE game mode – the Maelstrom Arena. […] Orsinium isn’t just a new zone, however. The base game patch for this DLC includes a large number of quality of life improvements that everyone gets access to including controller support, battle leveling updates, subtitles, shield dyeing, LFG improvements, and the Champion Point cap and catch-up system.

Lambert further notes that ZOS’ next goal is the Thieves Guild DLC. “With it comes a new Trial as well as a myriad of other bug fixes and quality of life improvements,” he promises. “We will have more details on the Thieves Guild and the other DLCs in the new year.”

Massively OP’s Larry Everett scoped out Orsinium last month, saying the DLC “captured the essence of [his] ESO playstyle.”

Sorenthaz DJjazzy Once you get that PC set up let me know, and I’d be happy to run through with you.  (Just not until after November because starting next Tuesday it’s FO4 month for me.

DJjazzy I played on PTS for a bit to see how controller support plus the controller UI worked, and I liked it quite a bit.  So, in that regard I’m very excited to play “for real”.  No idea about the new content yet as I didn’t want to spoil anything.

I’ve been (re)playing Fallout New Vegas in anticipation of Fallout 4 next week, but this will definitely pull me back to ESO to dive in.  At least until next Tuesday, then FO4 will be my obsession for the next hundreds of hours.

Wild_Phil DJjazzy I don’t think they were complaining about having to pay for the DLC they were complaining about the cost of the DLC and it not being value for money .  I know a company has to make money but if they are viewed as greedy and exploiting their player base it leads to less people playing and less profits in the long run .

I felt the price was too high for what this DLC offered which has put me off playing TESO altogether . I can get a lot better value for that money elsewhere .

This was the loneliest mmo I’ve ever played. And it wasn’t because no one was playing, it was because of the way they designed the game. Some of the hardest dungeons were solo missions. I mean, who decided to do that? Doh!

Crazy how long it took to get native controller support and a decent LFG for PC.  Should have been put in at the same time as console releases.

New zone is awesome, but spending my time in maelstrom Arena at the moment! I don’t want to mention any spoilers but they did some environmental effects like no other area of the game. Amazing and surprising.

DJjazzy It’s a great MMO if you’re looking for something different that takes gameplay elements of Elder Scrolls and incorporates them into an action-combat MMO.
A lot of people who dislike it mostly hate it because it isn’t Skyrim with online multiplayer.  I hear the Veteran/Champion system is a bit annoying, but overall I found my time in it to be worth the investment.  Sadly hard to keep with it when I lack friends who are interested in playing it.  Lol.
