Markarth Coming to ESO
This is a great time to be a fan of the Elder Scrolls Online, as the title continues to bring more content to its legions of fans from around the world. This time, the downloadable content known as Markarth (a city also known as Markarth Side in Skyrim) will take players to an all-new zone, as you are whisked off to the Reach in Skyrim. Here you can also expect a new solo arena and more, as ESO looks to bring yet another compelling storyline.
If you are looking to check out this DLC, then you can do so on November 2nd for PC/Stadia users, and November 10th for console gamers. It will be available on PC, Google Stadia, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can also get it for free if you have an ESO Plus membership, or you can get it from the Crown Store in-game.
It’s something exciting to look forward to, as players prepare themselves to head to a “dangerous new zone with the Reach”, as well as the new solo arena, plus several unlockable paths for you to discover. There’s also challenging bosses for you to take care of, which will take all of your skill and cunning to overcome. With hidden secrets galore for you to unlock when the DLC rolls out in November, there is plenty for you to be looking forward to.
The Markarth Prologue Questline
If you can’t wait until the November release date, then there is a Markarth Prologue Questline that is now available for you to check out. So if you have been craving the continuation of the Dark Heart of Skyrim story, then this is the perfect place to pick up where you left off. What’s more, it is free for you to play, so head over to the Crown Store to download it now. By doing so, you will be able to bridge the gap going into the Markarth DLC when it releases.
With this we will see the year-long story coming to a dramatic climax, something that many players will be looking forward to seeing. Remember, if you have the ESO base game then you are more than welcome to start experiencing this new adventure.
New Community Events
That’s not all that’s coming to the game either. A new in-game event is being introduced in the form of The Lost Treasures of Skyrim. This is something that will challenge you to unlock three tiers of rewards that surround pets, a new house, cosmetics and even houseguests. To unlock them, you have to use the Antiquities system in order to find the hidden treasures. The more treasures that you unlock, the quicker you will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
There are more bonus rewards for you to earn, by taking part in adventures and quests in the Western side of Skyrim. There are more events coming, as well as the currently running Lost Treasures of Skyrim. We have the Witches Festival from October 22nd, which runs until November 3rd. Then, there’s the Undaunted Celebration from November 25th to December 12th. Finally, we end the year with the New Life Festival from December 21st to January 2nd, 2021.
The events that are taking place with offer their own rewards, as well as giving you the chance of collecting Event Tickets, as well as getting the Crimson Indrik, which will serve as the final Indrik evolution.
On the subject of community, fans can use the hashtag #TamrielTogether to help ESO players celebrate the game. By using the hashtag attached to whatever you choose to do related to the game, you will be able to participate and check out sweepstakes to enter, as well as a guild-based contest, and much more to come.
