As outlined in December’s edition of The Road Ahead, there’s plenty of to look forward w/ The Elder Scrolls Online in 2015, including the game’s launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4! Until then, here’s a quick guide to some of ESO’s newest web content.

The roundup starts with a look at Undaunted Pledges, which allow players at or over Level 45 to receive special quests and loot. Here’s a quick excerpt of the full article:

“There are two types of pledges: Non-Veteran and Veteran. Non-Veteran Pledges are available right away at level 45, and Veteran Pledges open up at Veteran Rank 1. You can have both a Veteran and Non-Veteran Pledge in your quest log at the same time, but you can only complete each kind of pledge once a day—even the mightiest heroes need to rest sometimes!”

PAX Prime: The Evil Within, BATTLECRY, and The Elder Scrolls Online Take Center Stage!

Easily one of the most fun weeks of the year is attending PAX Prime in Seattle. Closing out the summer meeting some of our biggest fans is always a thrill. And if you’ve ever been to Seattle, the weather in late August/early September is damn near perfect.

For Bethesda’s 7th PAX Prime, we’ve got a pretty exciting lineup — we’re showcasing The Evil Within, BATTLECRY, and The Elder Scrolls Online.

With less than two months until its October 14th release, we’re celebrating The Evil Within, Shinji Mikami’s return to survival horror, in a major way. By visiting our booth in the Washington Convention Center, you’ll have a chance to go hands-on with the game on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4. What’s more, we’ll have multiple contests during the week for a chance to win custom Xbox One consoles and a one-of-a-kind piece of memorabilia that’s sure to charm terrify your friends and family. And don’t worry, fans at home will have a chance to win, too — more details later this week.

Mock-ups of customized Xbox One consoles that lucky winners will have a chance to score! More details to come!

Also at the Bethesda PAX booth, multiplayer madness will be in full effect for both The Elder Scrolls Online and BATTLECRY. With the the former, ESO veterans (and newcomers) will have a chance to participate in tense, 3v3v3 multiplayer in Colovian Crossing — a special capture-the-flag PvP worth checking out. It’s a real treat.

All players that check out ESO will come away with something special, too — a download code for a limited edition Bristlegut Pig pet to accompany you in your Tamriel travels.

Meanwhile for BATTLECRY, we’ll be showcasing 8v8 matches in an all-new game mode, Land Grab, with plenty of loot for players to grab. All participants will score a BATTLECRY pin for playing. But winning teams will have an opportunity for even more prizes, including…

… this Cossacks vs. Royal Marines lithograph signed by the game’s Creative Director Viktor Antonov if you win one match, and… 

… one of these PAX Prime BATTLECRY faction t-shirts if your team wins two consecutive matches.

PAX Prime takes place August 29th – September 1st at the Washington Convention Center in Seattle, WA. Stay tuned here on the blog and follow our @bethblog, @battlecry_game, @tesonline, and @theevilwithin Twitter accounts for updates through the week!
