October 22nd: That’s when Murkmire will finally launch for The Elder Scrolls Online, at least for PC players. Consolers will be waiting another two weeks to November 6th to get their marsh on. As we’ve previously covered, the DLC includes the new zone on the southern coast of Black Marsh with its main storyline and Blackrose Prison arena, plus the free bits coming with update 20 on the same day, including updates to the housing editor, the character selection screen, class balancing, music boxes, and the Cyrodiil RvR map improvements.
But current players will want to focus on today’s update right now – that’s because you can start the Murkmire prologue quests today.
“Today, you can begin the journey that will lead you deep into the swamps of Black Marsh with the Murkmire prologue quests. To get started, pick up the first quest either from the Crown Store (for free) or from the Cyrodilic Collections “Help Wanted” posters that can be found in the cities of Vulkhel Guard, Daggerfall, or Davon’s Watch. In these new quests, you are tasked with helping Concordia Mercius and Cyrodilic Collections recover looted Argonian relics taken from Black Marsh. As you progress, you’ll learn about some of the dangers associated with a certain special relic and get a glimpse of what’s to come with the Murkmire DLC game pack. The Murkmire prologue adventures features two unique story quests in addition to a series of six new daily quests that have you collect items in preparation for the coming journey to Murkmire.”
Also worth noting is that Murkmire itself is actually the reward for logging in 24 days during the month of November, so if you can’t afford the fee, just keep up with your daily logins and it’s yours for nothin’ at all.
Something is coming to Black Marsh…
The #Murkmire DLC for #ESO will be available on October 22 for PC/Mac and November 6 on Xbox One and PlayStation4. Are you excited to explore the Argonian homeland like never before? https://t.co/yQqkF7jFVC pic.twitter.com/hVFlL0uKVB
