The Waking Flame DLC for Elder Scrolls Online is out today on PC, Mac, and Stadia bringing two dungeons alongside Update 31.

Update 31 itself is set to include a ton of bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and performance improvements all around. One such feature is a reply function for in-game mail. It also includes new houses, new furnishings, and houseguests as part of the in-game microtransaction Crown Store. You can also expect PvP combat changes.

Alongside these improvements are various graphical improvements coming both to PC and console alike. However, keep in mind Waking Flame and Update 31 are delayed on consoles by a week and will now launch on September 8.

“To ensure a smooth and stable launch, we have made the decision to move back the release date of The Elder Scrolls Online: Waking Flame and Update 31 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 to September 8. By separating our PC/Mac/Stadia and console releases by an additional week, we hope to publish a more stable build, potentially allowing us to include additional fixes before the new content goes live.”

The team also noted a delay of an extra week will help reduce stress on their support teams to allow them to better focus on each individual release.

In addition to Update 31, Waking Flame brings two new dungeons to Elder Scrolls Online in the Dread Cellar and Red Petal Bastion. Zenimax Online actually previewed the Dread Cellar previously. If you missed that, you can catch up on our coverage here.
