Dark Heart of Skyrim & Greymoor Announcement Recap


Yesterday evening, we announced The Elder Scrolls Online’s next big year-long adventure and Chapter live from the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas. In case you missed it, here’s everything we showcased and announced during the big event!

A New Year-Long Tale

The event’s biggest reveals, of course, were the announcement of both the Dark Heart of Skyrim year-long adventure and Greymoor Chapter, and the show kicked off on a high note with this new cinematic trailer:

ZOS’s Creative Director Rich Lambert and Bethesda Softwork's SVP of Global Marketing and Communications Pete Hines took the stage to discuss the new Chapter, showcasing the content’s new zone, storyline, and systems. You can watch the entirety of the announcement below:

Post-Show Fun

With the announcement stream complete, we went into a post-show with Community Team members Jessica Folsom and Gina Bruno, who hosted community guests and ESO Dev Team members such as Dungeon Lead Mike Finnigan and Loremaster Leamon Tuttle!
