Hey, you. You're finally awake.
ESO: Greymoor

The latest expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online is now upon us. Explore Western Skyrim in Greymoor, the expansion that aims to say just one thing: Hey, you. You're finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right?

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor allows players to explore and battle throughout the Western Skyrim area and also down into the depths of Blackreach. This launch is just for PC owners as the console launch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 won't happen until June 9. The Stadia release is on June 16. The Stadia release on the 16th is being made alongside the free release of the base game and the Morrowind chapter for Stadia Pro subscribers.

This release is actually the second update for the year-long adventure that has been dubbed, The Dark Heart of Skyrim. In addition to the new area and new adventures, this update brings about the new Antiquities system that allows players to get some of that hot and tasty Elder Scrolls lore. There are also Harrowstorm world events, performance improvements, and more. Obviously the biggest draw today is the addition of "around 30 hours" of new story content.

To those curious, this expansion takes place 900 years prior to the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Existing players can get the Greymoor digital upgrade for $39.99 (USD). New players can get the full package that includes the base game, Morrowind, Summerset, and Elsweyr Chapters for $59.99 (USD).

Skyrim Like You’ve Never Seen Before
In Western Skyrim, new to ESO, players will travel across the unforgiving lands of the Nords, as well as delve into the deepest depths of Blackreach—expanded from what players originally explored in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim—to fight sinister monsters while uncovering the secret of the Dark Heart of Skyrim. Players will explore familiar and recognizable Western Skyrim locations including Solitude, Morthal, Labyrinthian, Dragon Bridge, and more.

An Ancient Evil Rises
A terrible army of monsters led by a Vampire Lord rises from the depths of Blackreach. Intent on devouring souls to fuel their fiendish plans, it’s up to Skyrim’s heroes—such as Lyris Titanborn, a fan-favorite from the base game—to restore the light and uncover the Dark Heart of Skyrim.

Uncover Tamriel’s Hidden History
With Greymoor comes the all-new Antiquities system that gives players the tools to uncover Tamriel's hidden history by unlocking unique collectibles, treasure, and even powerful Mythic items, providing rewards for all types of players. As part of this extensive non-combat system, players will travel beyond Western Skyrim and across Tamriel to scry the location of ancient relics and excavate them to become a world-renowned archaeologist.

New World Events
The Greymoor Chapter also brings new world events in the form of Harrowstorms, horrifying supernatural storms that plague the people of Western Skyrim. Players must work together to quell the Harrowstorms terrorizing the land and put a stop to the vampire menace threatening Tamriel.
