ESO Wades through the Murkmire and Update 20

Hope you don’t mind getting your feet dirty, because The Elder Scrolls Online is headed for the swamp in its next update. An ESO Murkmire developer preview has offered a closer look at the MMORPG’s next DLC as well as features coming in the game’s 20th update.

Murkmire will open up a new zone in the southern reaches of the Black Marsh, where players can expect to find crumbling Imperial ruins, dense jungles, and the Argonians and their relationship with the Hist trees. Of course, there’s more to do than just sightseeing – a lost artifact fuels the narrative of Murkmire, and it will be up to players to join with the local Argonians to find it.

The new DLC will also open up a four-player leaderboard arena which seeks to test your team’s mettle through five stages. Making your way through the Arena will reward players with unique items, like a greatsword that improves the Uppercut ability or new item sets.

For those not interested in buying DLC, there’s a few intriguing new things coming with Update 20. The Alliance War map will now feature destructible bridges and Milegates, along with new alternate nearby routes and new Outposts. There will also be some quality-of-life improvements and combat adjustments as per the usual.

Our Thoughts

It’s actually kind of funny. The more I think about what lore I know from the Elder Scrolls universe, the more I realize I know almost next to nothing about the Argonians. So ideally this new DLC will bring a number of interesting revelations. Also, we certainly hope it brings enjoyable things for players to do, naturally.
