Today’s the big day for The Elder Scrolls Online, as ZeniMax Online Studios takes the stage of the Luxor’s HyperX Esports Arena in Vegas to reveal what’s coming to the MMO over the course of 2020. If 2020 looks like the past few years, then we already know to expect a later spring chapter and three DLC spread out around, and we already have a pretty good idea that the theme for the whole saga will be focused on Skyrim, as the game’s December Game Awards trailer teases “Dark Heart of Skyrim” and implies that’s where we’re going next. Look, it’s Elder Scrolls. Everything in the last 10 years of TES eventually leads back to Skyrim. But of course, we crave details, more details than the little dribs and drabs coming from the leaks!
Worth noting is that the studio is promising rewards for players if certain viewership milestones are met, plus the devs have vowed to take part in a real-life Snow Bear Plunge if 80,000 viewers show up.
MOP Elder Scrolls Online columnist Ben “Braxwolf” Griggs is live at the event and will have his own writeups from the show, but in the meantime, we’ll be watching the stream as it happens from Vegas, and we’ll update this piece as new information is made public! The show begins at 5 p.m. EST:
