Murkmire DLC Game Pack

In the Murkmire DLC game pack, you are able to explore a new zone located on Black Marsh’s southern coast, experience a brand-new story questline, and test your mettle in the Blackrose Prison Arena.

Explore a New Zone

In this new zone, you can venture into the heart of Black Marsh to learn about the native Argonian people, their culture, and their history. In addition to the main story, this new zone is packed full of new adventures to experience, including unique quests, Delves, World Bosses, and countless other dangers that lurk in the deep swamp.

Discover the native tribes of Murkmire

Recover a Piece of Murkmire’s History

In Murkmire’s story questline, you shall work to investigate the long-forgotten past of this remote and unforgiving land and help an Imperial scholar search for an ancient and powerful Argonian relic. Ready your supplies and prepare to embark into a world secluded from Tamriel for centuries. You might even discover the hidden history of the Argonians themselves.

Face Blackrose Prison

If you’re looking for a fight, you and your companions will be challenged by Murkmire’s new four-player Arena, Blackrose Prison. In this former prison colony, you must face waves of monstrous beasts and Blackguard warriors in vicious combat. Be sure to make use of the new Sigils to survive, because should you claim victory, you’ll earn powerful new Blackrose weapons not found anywhere else in Tamriel!

As you explore, quest, and battle your way through the deep swamp, you’ll be rewarded with three new zone sets and unique, Murkmire-themed collectibles. Finally, this new zone also introduces the new Dead-Water motif style, acquired by completing daily quests – so get exploring!

Update 20

Arriving alongside the new DLC game pack is the free Update 20 base-game patch. This update has a host of improvements, fixes, and changes to ESO’s core experience, but it also introduces a series of new and exciting features that can be enjoyed by all ESO players.

Bring Ruin to Cyrodiil

With Update 20, Cyrodiil is getting even more deadly with the introduction of destructible bridges and Milegates. Now, you’re able to bring down any of the bridges and Milegates in Cyrodiil using ballistae, catapults, and trebuchets. Don’t worry, you can repair them if you wish, but we’ve also introduced a series of new goat paths around these chokepoints, giving you another way to enter enemy territory. This update also changes the shape of Cyrodiil by introducing a series of new Outposts AND offers brand new rewards, too.

Bring Cyrodiil crumbling down

New Housing Editor Tools

If you’re an avid home decorator, you’ll be thrilled to find that Update 20 also introduces an Undo/Redo function and the ability to link items together. With these new tools, you’ll be able to more easily make both small and large adjustments to your home, taking some of the pain out of shifting large or complex scenes. In addition to this, we’ve also added the first of the upcoming Music Boxes, allowing you to bring a little ambiance to your home. You can pick up the new Music Box from the Housing Editor for 800 crowns.

In addition to the above new features, Update 20 also introduces the ability to reorder your character select screen and brings a host of improvements to ESO Plus starting November 13.
