concludes its yearlong Season of the Dragon content and teases the next chapter in ZeniMax Online’s MMORPG adventure. And it’s going to be set in Skyrim.During The Game Awards, Bethesda premiered a new cinematic trailer that concludes the Season of the Dragon content saga, a yearlong roadmap for Elder Scrolls Online that was tied to the release of the Elsweyr expansion. But we’re almost in a new year and that means there’s a new expansion coming.
The Game Awards teaser ends with the line, “Explore the Dark Heart of Skyrim,” and invites fans to a reveal event on January 16, 2020.
Skyrim is the location players explore in the Elder Scrolls 5, and that’s one of the most-beloved Elder Scrolls games in the series. Skyrim is already an explorable location in Elder Scrolls Online, but the teaser suggests that the new expansion will dive deeper into the region. We’ll find out in January what exactly the “dark heart” of Skyrim means.
If players are looking to dive back into Skyrim for a new adventure, then Elder Scrolls Online may be the place to do it.Read IGN’s Elder Scrolls Online review here, and check out our Elder Scrolls Online wiki for more coverage.
