Harrowstorm, the dungeon DLC kicking off the Dark Heart of Skyrim season for Elder Scrolls Online, has received release dates for PC, Mac, and consoles along with Update 25.

Both Harrowstorm and Update 25 will release on PC/Mac on February 24, and March 10 for Xbox One and PS4. Harrowstorm contains two dungeons: Icereach and Unhallowed Grave. The team has shared a previewof Icereach,

“North of Skyrim and across the perilous Sea of Ghosts lies the frigid island of Icereach, home to the reclusive witches of the Icereach Coven. Reportedly originating from this barren rock, a terrible storm is lashing Skyrim’s northern coast, sinking longships and threatening the lives and livelihoods of the local Nords.”

Dungeon Lead Mike Finnigan also explained,

“Players come to Icereach for two reasons. To investigate the mysterious storms plaguing the Sea of Ghosts and to find a lost expedition.”

The dungeon is set to feature new gear, including a monster set, and collectibles such as style pages, dyes, furnishings, and more. Completing the dungeon on Veteran difficutly nets you the Lyris’ Icereach Battle Axe outfit style. The preview for Unhallowed Grave will preview next week.

Update 25, which is set to feature heavy performance optimizations, will release on those dates as well. Please note that Update 25 will require all players to re-download the full game, but will dramatically reduce the amount of space ESO takes up on hard drives.

Finally, remember that the team will provide a guided tour of both dungeons tonight at 6p ET during ESO Live. You can watch the stream on TwitchYouTubeMixer, and Steam. Twitch Drops will be enabled.
