Elder Scrolls Online’s Harrowstorm DLC and along with Update 25 are live today on PC and Mac.

Keep in mind, because Update 25 features a substantial performance overhaul, you will be required to re-download the entire client,

“This will result in major improvements to load times, streaming of assets, reliability of asset loads, and a reduction of space taken up by the client on your hard drive. In order to achieve this, you will be required to re-download the entirety of the game. To this end, the size of this update is 64.22 GB.”

The team published an FAQ on the update here if you’re interested. Here are the Harrowstorm patch notes summary, but for the full notes, check them out here.

  • Icereach: Hidden among the churning waves of the Sea of Ghosts, this frigid isle serves as the seat of power for the cruel Icereach Coven. Now, lashing storms swirl around it. Could this be a natural phenomenon, or something more sinister?
  • Unhallowed Grave: Long ago, the soldiers of the Bangkorai Garrison buried something away in this accursed cavern—an evil too great to leave unguarded. Now, centuries later, even the most daring Redguard explorers know to give this grave a wide berth.
  • Icereach and Unhallowed Grave are 4-player Dungeons which can be reached via Wrothgar and Bangkorai respectively.
    • Icereach’s entrance is in northern Wrothgar, on the coast. The entrance is a boat used to travel to the Dungeon.
    • Unhallowed Grave’s entrance is in southeastern Bangkorai, southwest of the Fallen Wastes Dolmen.
  • Both Dungeons include a Normal version in addition to a challenging Veteran version.
  • There are unique item sets, including two new Undaunted Monster Mask sets, only available within the Dungeons.
  • Unique Achievement awards are available for completing the Dungeons, including:
    • A unique body marking
    • A unique weapon style
    • Several Titles
    • Unique housing items
