Elder Scrolls Online takes the stage again for Bethesda. The successful launch of Summerset last week for the game was touted, but Bethesda was quick to announce two more miniature expansions coming in the coming months.

The first was Wolfhunter, a dungeon crawl DLC that will focus primarily on werewolves. The second is a story based DLC is titled Murkmire. Murkmire will allow players to go into the Black Marsh, the home of the Argonians in Elder Scrolls lore.

No story details were given on the show floor, but we did see some glimpses of the Black Marsh and the Argonians. More details will likely be revealed later in E3, or closer to the launch of the content later this year.

The ESO community has been expanding, with over 11 million players touted by Bethesda at their conference. The series has also been voted the most influential MMORPG for the past few years, steadily expanding further from its release in 2014.

Quick Take

Bethesda has been releasing DLC for Elder Scrolls Online like clockwork, and while their video package celebrating the MMO was a bit self-congratulatory, it is good to see them continually update the game with not only new massive expansions but small-scale DLC as well. Wolfhunter and Murkmire are not big content movers, but adding new dungeons, story areas and what will likely be questlines and factions is the lifeblood of a strong MMO. Everquest has done so for years, It does not surprise me if ESO tries to do the same thing.

The question now is what will Wolfhunter and Murkmire contain. We know basic details, so hopefully, Bethesda expands upon that further as the content gets closer to release.
