Elder Scrolls Online Enhancements

Here’s what the ESO game developers are cooking up for future Updates:

  1. Combat System Tweaks. More improvements will be made to the combat system to make it even more responsive.
  2. Loyalty Program. A new feature is being implemented to reward ESO subscribers with special in-game items. First reward on the list: a unique Ice Wraith vanity pet. More swag is to follow.
  3. Craglorn Expansion. The final region of Craglorn is being released with new delves and quests.
  4. The Serpent Trial. The final Trial in the constellation storyline is being released. The Trial is a 12-player group event.
  5. Dragonstar Arena. A special 4-player group PvE event is being released, complete with ten different stages, a leaderboard and rewards. Arena is a new type of group content for the game.
  6. Champion System. A new development system is being implemented to encourage character growth beyond current thresholds. The final result of the changes is not entirely known, but the concept of soft caps may eliminated. The new system will allow more opportunities for growth while keeping players challenged.
