Functional music boxes are coming in Elder Scrolls Online’s Murkmire

One of my most beloved possessions in Ultima Online is my music box: I spent months, probably years, collecting each “track” to insert into the box, and then I can run it and play my favorite Ultima songs while I’m puttering around my house sorting loot.

That makes me all the most excited to hear that The Elder Scrolls Online is getting exactly such a feature in the Murkmire DLC later this year.

“For housing, we’re putting music boxes in,” creative director Rich Lambert told VG247 at QuakeCon last week. “It’s this cool thing and we’ve got a ton of music that we’ve written in the game and so we’re putting it all in music boxes.”

Meanwhile, ESO has delivered a breakdown of the Midyear Mayhem PvP event it held this summer. You guys dropped almost a quarter of a million chaosballs, stole over 2.5K elder scrolls, capped over 700K keeps, and murdered 7.5M fellow soldiers. Peace and prosperity for all!

I wish I could get in to ESO…or any of the major MMOs that get regular, juicy content updates.

Been playing ESO for a month and a half. I love it! Try to give it a real go:)

Music Boxes, at last… Having no option to display music in your own home was a real shame for that kind of game in 2018, especially considering the quality of the soundtracks. Now, if they could only make the different songs available through quests instead of directly giving them (or selling them, let’s hope not) to the players, that would be great! If it was related to the College of Bards, that would be even better. One can dream…

And considering the pvp event, it was a real blast, just like last year. Basically the only pvp event most hardcore pvers attend. That’s how I’ve got most of my friends to discover that side of the game. Should happen more often.

So much for the constant forum complaints that PvP in ESO is “literally unplayable”!

If you played at all during this event, which I did, you would understand how unplayable it was. The normal issues, and there are many, were multiplied ten fold for 2 weeks. Permanent loading screens, disconnects more than anyone had ever seen which would result in being kicked out of a zone some people waited 2-4 hours to get into to, insane skill lag and delays in primetimes, and dozens of unfixed bugs still present (many for years). These stats are artificially inflated by ESO’s casual pve crowd which took advantage of the double ap rewards, literally the next day after the event ended every campaign was empty and back to normal again.

PvP in ESO is bad, can’t disagree with that. But it’s a PvE game anyway, PvP is more like a side entertainment.

I did play during this event, mostly off-peaks hours (just before 20:00 / after 23:00, my raid hours), and had a blast. Now, pvp is not my main activity on the game, and if I had been playing during peaks hours, I would probably have had a different experience.
