Elder Scrolls Online’s final DLC of the year is now called Markarth, not Darkstorm

Elder Scrolls Online’s chapters and DLC run almost like clockwork every year, so we all knew there was one last DLC comning in 2020, and now we know its name: Markarth. In fact, it’s apparently been renamed because the team “just like[s] it better” than Darkstorm, which is what was announced back in July.

Skyrim fans will recall that Markarth is one of the big cities in the region, most notable for its structures being carved right into the mountains. It’s also home to the Dwemer museum, being as it is sitting on top of Nchuand-Zel, one of the Dwemer race’s ancient cities. Naturally, ZeniMax is planning a big reveal stream for the DLC; expect it the weekend after next.

“Tune in to Twitch.tv/Bethesda on Saturday, September 19 at 3PM EDT, to watch a special digital event and ESO Live from the Elder Scrolls Online team that showcases everything coming to ESO in the final months of 2020. This includes the latest DLC, which we’re happy to announce has a new name: The Elder Scrolls Online: Markarth! We’ll preview the Markarth DLC game pack and talk about its zone, storyline, and place in the Dark Heart of Skyrim year-long epic. In addition to this, the team will outline 2020’s remaining in-game events and share information on the exciting end-of-year promotion we’ll be running throughout. After the digital event, we’ll host a special ESO Live to talk about the recent announcements and dive deep into some of the new DLC’s features.”

Need a gif of ESO boy beating the dead skyrim horse.

While Markarth won’t signify much to gamers who aren’t already fans of the Elder Scrolls franchise, I also think that “Darkstorm” sounds like a name that a ten-year-old boy would come up with after buying his first heavy-metal album.

Markarth is probably the better choice here. :-)

Or a 1990s comicbook character from Image Comics.

I like the name change. Darkstorm is totally generic and could be a DLC for literally anything, whereas Markarth has a specific meaning for Elder Scrolls fans.

Well looks like we’re finally going to be kicking in the door to the Reach with a no knock warrant.
