Check out what the press and ESO content creators thought when they got an opportunity to experience the Greymoor Chapter and preview Skyrim’s dark heart!

PC Gamer

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor looks uncannily familiar but packs in lots of new stories

“It may look like the Skyrim you remember, but there already appear to be plenty of new adventures planned for Elder Scrolls Online's return to the north.”


The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is more than a nostalgia trip to Skyrim

“Venturing into the open world beyond Solitude, I’m struck by how familiar it feels. I pop into Shadowgreen Cavern, for example, and suffer a fate I’m well used to: being lynched by angry Spriggan, bears, and brainwashed wolves, screeching past them to get a look at the magnificent forested cave before turning on my heels to get the hell out of there, like a hero. It looks and feels as I hope, even as I’m a few bite marks worse for wear. I also have a burst of nostalgia as I spot Dragon Bridge and Morthal on my travels. Ahh.”

Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is bringing vampires, supernatural storms, and archaeology to the fantasy MMO

“Grab your eyeliner and blackest hoodie, because Elder Scrolls Online is going super goth for its next chapter, Greymoor. We're talking vampire lords, monsters, and supernatural storms, plus the chance to go all Antiques Roadshow – but goth – with a new Antiquities system.”
