‘ESO’ Explores the Dark Heart of Skyrim in First Trailer for ‘Greymoor’ DLC

Get ready to Fus Ro Dah because The Elder Scrolls Online is headed back to Skyrim! This time, though, you won’t be hunting dragons. Instead, it’s vampire season. Trailer within…

After a year-long battle with dragons, Bethesda‘s highly-successful MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online will spend the next year exploring another mystical realm inhabited by one of the darkest races to ever roam The Elder Scrolls landscape. Vampires.

The upcoming season is called The Dark Heart of Skyrim and will see players battle loads of vampires, within Tamriel, in order to stop a powerful Vampire Lord. While the season will begin with the Harrowstorm Dungeon Pack DLC as a sort of prologue. Following that, will be when the meat of the story will begin with Greymoor. (Players are not required to play Harrowstorm to play Greymoor.)

Like most ESO seasons, The Dark Heart of Skyrim will be a year long adventure separated into four DLCs released throughout Harrowstorm (March), Greymoor (June), and two other untitled DLCs (one Dungeon/one Story).

The Dark Heart of Skyrim will be set 1,000 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This expansion will finally see players explore the snowy mountains of the Nord homeland and delve into the long-forgotten Blackreach. All while fighting the dark creatures intent to take over Tamriel.

Greymoor will release on PC/Mac via Steam, ESO Store, and Microsoft Store on May 18. It’ll release on June 2, 2020 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Regardless of which one you buy it for, Greymoor will have several editions to choose from.

The Standard Edition, Digital Upgrade, and three different collector’s editions, highlighted by the physical collector’s edition. Full details on all three below. For more details on Dark Heart of Skyrim, click here.
