Elder Scrolls Online has announced the Twitch Drop schedule for the first two weeks of September, giving players a chance to tune into ESO streams to get shiny rewards. The first of them (aside from September 4th’s Bethesda Gameplay Days, which has already taken place) is the Imperial City Celebration Event, which will take place on September 6th from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. EDT. Following that is the official ESO Live stream on September 14th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. EDT. And last, but not least, is the ESO Community Team Birthday Celebration, honoring the birthdays of Community Managers Gina Bruno and Jessica Folsom, on September 16th beginning at 12:00 a.m. EDT.

On a slightly less jovial note, there’s also been a bit of commotion within the ESO community forums regarding the loss of HDR visual options on Xbox One consoles. Community Manager Gina Bruno dropped by a forum thread full of players displeased with the HDR issue as well as with Zenimax’s lack of communication regarding a potential fix, stating that “[t]he current HDR visuals will stay the way they are for now” and that “we’re going to look into a compromise on the asset saturation between the old version and the current one that will be implemented in a future update.” Although there’s currently no timeframe for when players might be able to expect a fix, Bruno says the studio will give a heads-up when they “have a better idea of timing.”
