Hot on the heels of the major Morrowind DLC expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online – in fact, we literally posted our review of it earlier today – comes the Horns of the Reach DLC pack and a number of tweaks and additions in Update 15. This is coming out in August for all platforms.
Horns of the Reach features two new dungeons – Bloodrot Forge and Falkreath Hold – both of which feature a mix of both new and familiar enemies including Reachmen, minotaurs and Nirnblooded creatures. You’ll be able to tackle them in both normal and veteran modes, including veteran Hard Mode for the final boss.
Though it’s out in August, players on PC and Mac can try the content out in advance by playing on the Public Test Server. It’s coming to the PTS next week, and there’s no NDA, so players can test the DLC game pack and Update 15 and chat as much as they want.
Horns of the Reach will be available in the in-game Crown Store as well as being part of the ESO Plus subscription. This sees the game return to the more typical business model, after Morrowind was a “Chapter” expansion that lived outside of these and had to be bought separately.
Also coming in August is Update 15, which is free for all players, though the new Chaosball Battlegrounds PvP mode is only available to those who own ESO: Morrowind. It features:
- New Battlegrounds PvP Map: Arcane University (available to all)
- New Battlegrounds PvP Mode: Chaosball (available to Morrowind players)
- Research Cancelling
- Guild Invite History
- Currency System Updates
- Customizable Combat Cues
- New Homes and Furnishings for Homestead
- Bug fixes and Balance changes
In Chaosball, you battle to grab and hold onto the ball for as long as possible, earning more points the longer you hold onto it. Unfortunately, hold it for long and it’ll start to debuff your healing and armour, before dealing damage to you and your party. No pain, no gain, I suppose!
