Details from the Elder Scrolls Online's twelfth major update were revealed over the weekend at Gamescom in Cologne. In addition to One Tamriel, ZOS have revealed their plans to overhaul Craglorn and the alliance zones, add more daily guild quests, separate old Group Dungeons by story and release the remaining 17 Monster Masks, and introduce PvP dueling and Crown Store loot boxes. Two holiday events, Witches Festival and New Life Festival, were also announced, as was a discounted Crown Store bundle for the first four DLC to coincide with the release of the Gold Edition. It appears that ESO’s Update 12 will not introduce a new DLC for the coming quarter.
Tamriel arrives with Update 12 on the PTS early next week and live this
October, and ESO will never be the same. With One Tamriel, the game content in
ESO will no longer be gated by your character's level. Right out of the
tutorial you'll have the freedom to go anywhere in Tamriel and play any
content, in any order, just like other Elder Scrolls games. Our unique
battle-leveling system will automatically scale and balance your character to
the content, no matter where you go!
or forming a group will be easier than ever since we're also lifting the
alliance restrictions in open world zones. (Of course, PvP areas will still be
alliance-based.) This means you'll be able to group with anyone, from any
alliance, at any time. High-level players will even be able to group with
friends who are new to ESO; anyone below Champion 160 will scale so everyone
can adventure together. If you prefer to adventure alone, that's ok too. Every
zone has been modified to add world bosses and ensure a mixture of content for
solo and group play is available, and all of our dungeons now offer both Normal
and Veteran modes, so there will always be something for you, no matter what
your play style might be!
