Bethesda, the developer of the popular Elder Scrolls gaming franchise has announced the latest downloadable content for Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited called "Orsinium," the place of origin of the Orc race.
Bethesda made the announcement on their official blog post. The game developer wrote, "For the first time in The Elder Scrolls series since Daggerfall, embark on an unforgettable journey to Orsinium, the majestic ancestral home of the Orcs located deep within the mountains of Wrothgar,"
Orsinium DLC is coming even as fans have yet to get over with their enthusiasm with the last DLC from Bethesda called "The Imperial City." The new Orsinium DLC is described as massive in terms of contents. The new DLC will have "over 20 hours of captivating story content and quests."
"Orsinium, the second official DLC game pack for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, will be available on the ESOTU PTS (Public Test Server) today (Oct. 5) and launches on PC/Mac on November 2nd, Xbox One on November 17th, and PlayStation 4 on November 18th," Bethesda said. "The Orsinium DLC game pack, which boasts over 20 hours of story content and quests, will be accessible at no cost to those who have an active ESO Plus membership. Otherwise, it will cost 3,000 crowns in the ESOTU Crown Store. The base game patch includes long-awaited features such as gamepad support for PC, subtitles, LFG system improvements, and more. We encourage everyone who owns the PC/Mac version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited to join us in Orsinium for testing!"
Bethesda further writes, "Orsinium, the once-great capital city of the Orcs, has long lain abandoned and in ruin. King Kurog, reigning monarch of the Orcs, has sent invitations far and wide to enterprising adventurers. Join him in rebuilding the city and returning it to its former glory. Your efforts and actions while in Orsinium and the mountains of Wrothgar have a direct impact on the reconstruction effort-the city will visibly transform.
"The largest ESOTU DLC game pack to date, Orsinium takes you to the mountains of Wrothgar, and to the Orc capital itself, to unravel plots and counter-plots and encounter all-new enemies and allies. Whether you choose to strike out and explore this vast new zone on your own, play through the quests, face the challenges of the Maelstrom Arena, or team up with friends to take on the new public dungeons and world bosses, there's something here for everyone."
Gamers will be given an inside look into the culture of the Orcs and will be able to explore their origin with the Orsinium DLC. The new downloadable content will open up a new and "colossal" zone which will be available to all players of all levels.
With the fresh contents for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, active and new players of the game will have access to new and more powerful items, newly added unique crafting style, new rewards, six new world bosses to beat, and many more amazing additions.
