News | The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle is now playable

The latest chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online can be played starting today.

In High Isle, an expansion that costs 40 euros separately, players are taken to the Systres Archipelago also called The Systres, a small group of islands in the west of Tamriel where many Bretons can be found. Also, a free update is now available for all players, Update 34, which adds AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, among other things, which should make the game run better, especially on older hardware.

After the expansion, Mundus Stones are now part of the armory system, making so-called Mundus Stone boons easier to swap between different builds and gear. Changes have also been made to the quickselect wheel, allowing players to set up multiple wheels for things like mementos and emotes, and more options to set up the primary quickselect wheel for combat items and consumables.

Due to the update, the music of the title screen can be adjusted in the settings. A so-called Accessibility Mode has also been added, which automatically switches all key bindings when a new input is detected. Developer Zenimax reports that there will be more accessibility updates in the future, targeting players using different inputs (such as controllers).

The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia.

News | Plans for Fallout 5 are there, but Starfield and TES6 take precedence

Bethesda Games Studios has plans for a Fallout 5, but the development of both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 comes first.

Todd Howard of Bethesda made this known in an extensive interview with IGN. “Fallout is really part of our DNA. We’ve worked with others in the past and I can’t say what’s going to happen. But we have a page that says what we’re going to do with Fallout 5.”

For now, however, fans should not expect the game. “If I could wave my hand (to release the game) I would. I wish we could work faster, but I can’t tell today when what will happen. All I can say is that we have the order of Starfield and then Elder Scrolls 6.”

Starfield is therefore the next game from Bethesda Game Studios to be released. That game is scheduled for release on November 11, 2022. “We’ve wanted to do something like Starfield for a long time and have it set in a new universe. If we didn’t do it now, then when?”

After Starfield, it’s The Elder Scrolls 6, the highly anticipated sequel to Skyrim. Howard also doesn’t think it’s ideal that it takes so long for the game to come out – after all, Skyrim came out in 2011. “Would you plan such a gap between Skyrim and the sequel? I can’t say that’s ideal. (…) Hopefully at The Elder Scrolls 6 we can say that the game was worth the wait.”

News | The Elder Scrolls Online Expansion Deadlands Coming In November

Deadlands, the new expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online, will be released in November.

Bethesda has announced that. It is the final expansion in the Gates of Oblivion campaign. The DLC will be released on PC, Mac and Stadia on November 1 and on PlayStation and Xbox consoles on November 16.

Deadlands is the area of The Burn, with “melted rivers, flaming beasts and towering metal structures”. One of the highlights has to be Fargrave, one of the largest cities in the game. Players must stop Mehrunes Dagon’s plan to take over the Nirn. The extension will take about twenty hours.
