A YEAR-LONG GOTHIC ADVENTURE
Stop a powerful Vampire Lord from enslaving Tamriel in the Dark Heart of Skyrim, a gothic tale of sinister secrets and deadly betrayals. The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is the next stage in the epic story that begins with the Harrowstorm DLC and continues throughout the entire year.
EXPLORE WESTERN SKYRIM
Venture through an iconic land, almost 1000 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Traverse the frozen tundra and snowy mountains of the Nord homeland and delve into the perilous depths of long-forgotten Blackreach.
AN ANCIENT EVIL
Terrible monsters, led by a Vampire Lord, rise from the depths of Blackreach, intent on devouring souls to fuel their fiendish plans. As darkness consumes the land, Skyrim needs heroes to restore the light.
DISCOVER TAMRIEL’S HISTORY
Travel across Tamriel to recover lost artifacts with the new Antiquities System. Scry the location of ancient relics and excavate them to uncover Tamriel’s hidden history and become a world-renown Archaeologist!
Explore the land of the Nords and encounter a people as unique and stalwart as Skyrim itself! This all-new zone features a macabre main story, exciting side quests, terrifying world bosses, dangerous delves, and more.
A NEW TRIAL: KYNE’S AEGIS
Defend the island bastion of Kyne’s Aegis in a massive 12-player trial and protect the besieged villagers from invading Sea Giants. Battle hordes of monstrous raiders and three challenging bosses in this new PvE group challenge.
NEW WORLD EVENTS: HARROWSTORMS
Supernatural Harrowstorms plague Western Skyrim, draining the life energy of anyone caught within and transforming them into ravenous monsters or mindless zombies. Band together and shut down these world events before the very soul of Skyrim is lost.
NEW REWARDS: SKYRIM’S BOUNTY
Earn, unlock, and loot a massive selection of new and unique rewards found within the snow-swept region of Western Skyrim, including six armor sets, tons of collectables, Achievements, items, and more!
If you’re a fan of ESO, then the Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor chapter will add a much needed area into this vast world that boasts some graphically impressive places that really makes you wonder at the marvel of Skyrim. While the main story is quite cliched, including the villain, there’s still plenty to find, fight and do along the way with engaging NPC’s, clever enemies and more exploration then you can poke a sword at. Furthermore, the main game may take you around 15 hours to complete but if you invest in additional exploration, you could easily double this time and then some!
Definitely like the new expansion. There’s a lot more space to explore, love Blackreach, enjoy the new Vampire rework. Suffered a few bugs and texture glitches but my overall experience was positive.
game is prone to crashing on the PS4 at the moment, texture load bugs, UI bugs, quest giver loading bugs, loot bugs. Some of which only require a reload for them to “work” although the loading times are strenuous at best and if you’re in solitude prepare to wait at least 5 minutes if you get lucky .
the worst part is the tutorial for the new antiquities with both the scrying and excavation elements. It’s like a watered down World of Warcraft archaeology but, somehow they’ve managed to make it worse. Seriously if you were excited about this, the first quest on it in solitude where you help Gabriel will clear that up pretty quickly. The word disappointing doesn’t quite define the feeling you get from this, it’s just… terrible,
Even after all the delays to get the console version running, it still feels as if they rushed it. If you’re going to get it for the PS4 prepare for a very frustrating experience. It was not ready. It shows a lot.
it really does feel as if once you’re in the game that someone needs to say “finally you’re awake”.
Though The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor represents a good jumping in point for lapsed players and newcomers alike, it sticks a little too rigidly to its shopworn design tendencies to really excel, while elsewhere, a smattering of bugs threaten to take the sheen off what is otherwise a highly entertaining expansion to one of the better MMORPGs on the market.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is another solid expansion, but it’s nothing that you haven’t seen before. Western Skyrim is fun to explore, and the DLC tells a decent tale, but quests continue to lack any real innovation, highlighting the title’s ageing gameplay loop.
