Fans of the MMO have spent the last few months unravelling the intentions and plans of the Daedric Prince throughout the Gates of Oblivion expansion. Spanning across three chapters, heavily tied to The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, this chapter will be coming to an epic conclusion with the arrival of the Deadlands DLC.
Ahead of the Deadlands launch, players will get to learn more about the upcoming DLC with a special behind-the-scenes look from the development team. They will also be revealing the latest news and updates, in-game events and activities and more plus a series of post-show streams to answer questions from the greater ESO community.
What is the Deadlands DLC?
Deadlands is the fourth and final DLC pack for the Gates of Oblivion chapter. Following Flames of Ambition, Blackwood and Waking Flame, players have been embarking on their year-long journey throughout the lands of Tamriel as the events of Gates of Oblivion dating back 800 years before The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
With a deeper focus on the villainous Daedric Prince, Mehrunes Dagon throughout the Gates of Oblivion, players will have to stand against the forces of Oblivion in the Deadlands DLC. With a path cleared to Mehrunes Dagon’s domain, his hellish troops of Daedra and cultists await players who will unleash the destruction of Tamriel as players are tasked to prevent this cataclysmic event from occurring.
The Deadlands DLC will have players visiting the city of Fargrave, as tensions continue to heighten in this city with Mehrunes Dagon not far away. Additionally, the DLC will introduce players to new cosmetic items, achievements and collectables and a brand new Armory system will be added to the game.
