The Elder Scrolls Online: The Dark Heart of Skyrim has vampires being prime antagonists this year

The Elder Scrolls Online’s next year of content will be featuring vampires as Bethesda revealed The Dark Heart of Skyrim, the year-long story event coming to the MMO. Events begin in March with the Harrowstorm DLC where a supernatural storm takes hold in Icereach meaning players need to head into the Unhallowed Grave.


Then in June players head to Greymoor in a Skyrim 1000 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. If the name Greymoor rings a bell then you may remember the ruins of Fort Greymoor that featured in Skyrim. It had been a hideout and base for different factions over the years and in Skyrim it is mentioned vampires used to hold it. Players will be venturing into Blackreach too which houses a Vampire Lord. There’s also a new antiquities system being added where players can find items that uncover more of Tamriel.

A new trial called Kyne’s Aegis will go live in Greymoor which is a 12 person trial where players have to help a village fight off Sea Giants. Harrowstorms will be the new world events which turn anyone caught in them into monsters and zombies, so shutting down these storms is quite a high priority to make Tamriel that little bit safer.
