The Elder Scrolls Online: Markarth

We were thrilled to announce the conclusion to the Dark Heart of Skyrim epic during the recent digital event with The Elder Scrolls Online: Markarth. In case you missed the big announcement, you can check it out below:

This new DLC will take you to the area of Skyrim known as the Reach with an all-new zone, a compelling storyline that ties into the Dark Heart of Skyrim year-long adventure, and introduces a new solo arena. This new DLC will release on November 2 for PC/Mac and Stadia* and November 10 for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One, and it will be available free as part of an ESO Plus™ membership or available from the in-game Crown Store.

For a deeper dive into Markarth’s new solo arena and some of Update 28’s upcoming features, check out the ESO Live post show with special guests from the ESO development team:

This new DLC (and Update 28) will be coming to the Public Test Server this Monday, September 21, and we’ll be previewing more of Markarth in the weeks to come, so visit our DLC page and stay tuned to for more.

Lost Treasures of Skyrim

In addition to Markarth, we are very happy to introduce a new in-game event starting next week. The Lost Treasures of Skyrim challenges you and the ESO community to unlock three tiers of collectible rewards that include new cosmetics, a pet, an astonishing new house, and the first of a new type of collectible: houseguests!

How do you unlock these rewards? Simply use the Antiquities system to dig up Tamriel’s lost treasures. The more treasures you unearth, the quicker you and your fellow Greymoor players will unlock the goods!

In addition to this challenge, the event also brings bonus rewards to all players who adventure and complete daily quests in Western Skyrim. For more on the Lost Treasures of Skyrim and these bonus rewards, check out our announcement article and web page. Note that this event and its rewards are only available to those who own the Greymoor Chapter.

Of course, this isn’t the only event to come in 2020. Here’s the lineup and dates (note that some dates may shift) for all of the year’s remaining in-game events:

  • Lost Treasures of Skyrim (September 23-October 5)
  • Witches Festival (October 22-November 3)
  • Undaunted Celebration (December 3-December 15)
  • New Life Festival (December 17-January 5, 2021)

Unlock Community Rewards during the Lost Treasures of Skyrim Event

Each of these events features their own rewards and challenges and allow you to collect Event Tickets and acquire the final Indrik evolution: the Crimson Indrik. That’s right, this is the final Indrik evolution available since we first introduced them back in 2018—we’ll have more information later about what will be replacing them.

#TamrielTogether is Coming!

Finally, we’re thrilled to announce our end-of-year promotion, #TamrielTogether! Throughout the rest of this year, we’ll be celebrating everything you do as a community to make Tamriel of The Elder Scrolls Online the remarkable world it is today. This promotion will include an amazing sweepstakes to enter, a guild-based contest, and more, so keep an eye out on for more information in the coming weeks! 

Team up for adventure during #TamrielTogether
