The Elder Scrolls Online site has been updated with a first-look at the upcoming Murkmire DLC and Update 20 that will arrive alongside it. Murkmire is part of the Plus membership program or the DLC can be purchased separately using Crowns. Update 20 will be free to all ESO players.

Murkmire is a completely new zone with "new challenges and dangers including unique world bosses, delves, quests and more". Players can expect to find new gear, furnishings, styles and collectibles as well. The goal is to lend a helping hand to the Argonians as they work to "recover a legendary Saxhleel antiquity".  "You'll content with the dangerous Blackguard faction, suspicious and leery Argonian tribes, menacing grave robbers, ancient traps, savage beasts and even flesh-eating plants".

Blackrose Prison is a new arena coming in Murkmire, a proving ground for the Blackguard. This is an "all-new, four-player leaderboard arena" that can yield powerful new weapons and new item sets.

Update 20 includes:

  • Cyrodiil will "undergo a dramatic change" when destructible bridges and Milegates are added;
  • Housing System improvements;
  • QoL improvements including the ability to "reorder your characters on the character select screen";
  • combat changes and balance tweaks across all classes

Interesting, Murkmire will be available first for ESO Plus members and for those who separately purchase the DLC. However, throughout the month of November, the "entire DLC will also be available as a Daily Reward". The team will be providing more insight into how that will work in the coming weeks.
