With another year comes another expansion set to release over the course of 2021 for the Elder Scrolls Online and this time it seems they want to cash in on the nostalgia of those who love Oblivion with their ‘Gates of Oblivion’ year-long expansion. The events, just like the others, will take place over several months and the first will be released in March with the ‘Flames of Ambition’ DLC which will just be a small introduction with some new dungeons and items.
The big one will be known as ‘Blackwood’ and will be taking place in an area bordering Cyrodiil (where you play in Oblivion) and Black Marsh. This will not only bring about the main part of the story featuring the Mythic Dawn cult and their attempts to bring the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon into Tamriel but will also come with a brand new system, the companion system! Now you can have a follower in ESO who will follow you around, fight enemies, level up and even allows for gear customisation. The developers didn’t elaborate as to exactly how much of the game can be used with companions though I would imagine most things aside from trials and such. Overall it just seems like another typical year for ESO though I’m sure many Oblivion fans will be happy to return to familiar territory.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
