ESO's First Major Update: Craglorn Due At End of Week

Seven weeks is close enough to "4-6 weeks" right?



Elder Scrolls Online, like most MMO's (and Bethesda RPGs in general), has been off to a rocky start with the amount of bug fixes and game balancing tweaks made since launch.  Craglorn was supposed to be part of the game at launch but turned into the first explansion when Zenimax felt it needed a bit more polishing.  It's left many eagerly awaiting the expansion, and some simply waiting for the large bug fix patch that will accompany it.  Well, it looks like the wait is finally over with creative director Paul Sage telling IGN that the expansion should be hitting the game this week.


I think we’re still at the tail-end of six weeks, I could be wrong there, it’s all a blur! But we’re either in the sixth week or the seventh with this update and I believe our next update is fairly on schedule.  When we released we talked about our plans rather than 'this is exactly what it’s going to be' – we’re generally pretty careful about the language.

I think any plan like that can be disrupted if something unforeseen happens. But right now we have the second update lined up and ready to go onto the PTS [Public Test Server] once we launch Craglorn, and that’s coming soon.

That’ll be the Veteran Dungeon, Crypt of Hearts.

 

Most updates won't be as large as the entire zone of Craglorn being added, though hopefully future updates will be larger than a single veteran dungeon (like the Crypt of Hearts mentioned above) if they plan to keep players interested in end-game content.  At least for now players know they will be finally getting to Craglorn at the end of the week -- if all goes as planned.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane


Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
