The Elder Scrolls Online Previews Horns of the Reach

The upcoming Horns of the Reach DLC was only off-handedly mentioned during Bethesda’s E3 presentation, but now The Elder Scrolls Online has offered a more in-depth look at the upcoming DLC, including features, PTS arrival times, and a release window.

Horns of the Reach will introduce two new dungeons for groups to explore: Bloodroot Forge, an ancient forge said to be created by the Daedric prince Hircine to craft powerful weapons; and Falkreath Hold, a town besieged by the marauding forces of Domihaus the Bloody-Horned. Both dungeons will be available in Normal and Veteran Modes.

PvP’ers are seeing new content with the accompanying Update 15 as well. A new 4v4v4 map will be introduced in the form of Arcane University. The map will feature indoor fighting, teleporters to be aware of, and dangerous high platforms. Battlegrounds will also see a new Chaosball game type where teams must hold on to the titular ball as long as possible to earn points. The ball, however, will afflict the holding team with a healing and armor debuff as well as gradually deal damage.

Update 15 will also introduce several quality-of-life improvements for everyone whether they buy Horns of the Reach or not. These features include the ability to cancel an in-development research project, a guild invite history, a currency system update that lets players bank Alliance Points and Writ Vouchers, and customizable attack telegraphs.

Horns of the Reach will be on the PTS for PC and Mac players next week with no NDA. The DLC itself is due to release sometime in August of this year platform-wide. The DLC will be available in the Crown Store or for free as part of the ESO Plus Membership.
