Bethesda has released the latest chapter in the ESO saga, The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood. The expansion is available now for all PC, Mac, and Google Stadia players. The console versions of Blackwood launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One on June 8.
As part of the Gates of Oblivion year-long storyline, the Blackwood Chapter tasks players with exposing the daedric plots and tyrannical schemes consuming the region. All players can discover the connection of these plots to the Prince of Destruction and his dreadful plans for Tamriel. Though Blackwood is a standalone story, its events further the overall Gates of Oblivion narrative that will conclude later in 2021.
New companion system, new zone and a bunch of new content
Players can look forward to an all-new Companion System, designed so whether you play single-player or with friends, you’ll never have to adventure alone again. Unlocked via certain Blackwood main storyline quests, players can choose between two new companions, whose playstyle you’ll define through selecting their gear and leveling up their skills.
Companions have their own personalities, likes, dislikes, and unique questlines. Oh, and be careful with your actions as the deeds you perform will influence rapport with your companion. Also, the new chapter delivers over 30 hours of new story content in the stunning new region of Blackwood, complete with iconic locations that fans of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will surely recall.
How to buy
Players can purchase the Blackwood Chapter through the ESO Store or platform store of their choice. Separately, to ensure a smooth Blackwood launch on consoles, The Elder Scrolls Online: Console Enhanced will now arrive on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 on June 15, 2021.
