One of the big events MMO players were surely looking forward to this month was The Elder Scrolls Online’s planned reveal of Gates of Oblivion. The date for the big show was set for January 21st.moved Gates of Oblivion’s hoopla off another week.
“Due to Inauguration Day in the United States falling on Jan. 20, we are moving our Global Reveal Event for Gates of Oblivion from Thursday, Jan. 21 to Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 5pm EST/10pm GMT,” the studio announced today. No further details were offered.
MMO players will recall that that ZeniMax has bumped major events before to make sure they don’t collide with major real-world happenings, including delaying Greymoor’s console launch last summer, which was postponed so as not to distract from the funeral of George Floyd.

In other Elder Scrolls Online news, if you were among the gamers who ran afoul of update 28’s skill bug – whereby players permanently lost skill points thanks to Soul Trap and werewolf ultimates – then you should probably read up on ZeniMax’s dev blog on the process of sorting all that out. Apparently, it amounted to a pile of cascading bugs that’s taken since November to fix in full, and it’ll mean a full respec for skills a champion points in update 29 to fix all your affected toons.
