Tamriel Rebuilt Releases Andaram — October 31, 2023
Tamriel Rebuilt is a mod for Morrowind which adds the mainland of the province to the game, piece by piece.
Release 23.10, the Andaram expansion, is centered on the middle Thirr River, and the dark secrets which lie under its waters. The villainous Camonna Tong rules the port town of Hlan Oek while its Hlaalu governor has his mind on other matters. The great Temple city of Almas Thirr, first released in 2019’s Aanthirin release, has been expanded and updated and is now open to Imperial influence from the Fighters, Mages, and Thieves Guilds. Even the sleepy fishing village of Idathren has secrets to uncover. Meanwhile, the Dreugh Queen Paruddma broods in her Citadel deep beneath Lake Andaram’s placid waters.
This expansion adds a large new area to the game world and comes with more than 100 new quests, 9 faction questlines, two new biomes, and dozens of dungeons, including a whole new dungeon type. With this release, Tamriel Rebuilt now offers more quests than the original game and its expansion combined.
Download links and detailed information about new features are available on Tamriel Rebuilt's website.
The latest update for Elder Scrolls Online has been released for PC and Mac players. Unlike most other major quarter updates, there is no accompanying paid DLC included with Update 40. However, this update still brings with it significant new content in the form of the Endless Archive.
The Endless Archive is an "endless" dungeon for solo players or duos (a companion or fellow player), with each cycle endured in a single run becoming increasingly harder. The enemies you will face include a wide variety of possible types of opponents from past ESO content. Each cycle consists of several stages, culminating in a boss. After completing several cycles, you will face a more difficult boss, which completes that "arc" of the Endless Archive. Along the way you will obtain visions and verses. Verses provide a buff until the completion of the next stage, while visions provide a buff for the length of the current run. As a reward for completion of side puzzles, cycles, and arcs, you will gain access to Muniment Chests, which will give you soul gems, gold, equipment, and a new currency called Archival Fortunes. Archival Fortunes can be used with the merchants at the Endless Archive's entrance, who have monster mask style motifs, legendary quality treasure maps, non-combat pets, companion gear, and more. The Endless Archive also introduces new class-specific equipment sets, which are focused on providing bonuses to class skill lines.
Beyond the new free game mode, Update 40 also includes the largely requested Group Finder. Beyond just normal group content like Group Dungeons and Trials, it is also designed to help people find people who want to do exploration or roleplaying activities. Additionally, this update brings with it Grand Master Crafting Stations, which are designed to consolidate multiple attuned crafting stations into one, saving space in your home and limiting the number of stations you need to visit.
You can see the announcement of Update 40's release on the official website. Update 40 is currently set to arrive on consoles on November 14th.
Pete Hines Retires — October 16, 2023
In a Twitter post today Bethesda announced the retirement of Pete Hines, Head of Publishing, after 24 years with the company. We thank Pete for all the amazing work he's been involved with and wish him all the best on his retirement!
The Elder Scrolls: Castles Released for Early Access Testing — October 04, 2023
In a very surprising move, an entirely new Elder Scrolls game was released onto Google Play last week, The Elder Scrolls: Castles. An official comment about the release was later provided:
"The Elder Scrolls: Castles is being developed by our talented mobile team behind Fallout Shelter at Bethesda Game Studios. We’re excited to share an early access version of the game with a limited number of players and listen to feedback as we improve the game over time."
Getting into early access seemed to be limited to a small selection of Android devices in North America, and was further limited to somewhere around the first thousand people to install it. Attempting to install it after that initial window simply results in the message "Early access is full". We will keep you all updated as more information is released, and once the game is fully released.
Oblivion Remaster Release Date Leaked — September 19, 2023
A remaster of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was originally planned to be released in 2022, according to internal documents that were inadvertently made public as part of FTC v. Microsoft. The court documents include an internal Bethesda release schedule dated to 2020, prior to the company's acquisition by Microsoft. The same list also revealed that The Elder Scrolls VI was originally scheduled for release in 2024. In separate court documents, Microsoft has stated that TES VI is not currently expected to be released until at least 2026.
Bethesda has not officially announced the development of an Oblivion remaster, although it comes on the back of rumors that appeared online in July 2023 suggesting that a remaster is currently being worked on by a third party studio, Virtuos Games. Microsoft has since deleted the non-public documents from the U.S. court website where they were published.
UESP Map System Overhaul — August 16, 2023
A total renovation of the UESP's map system has been implemented. The new map system should provide a much better mobile view and experience. You should also be able to move more smoothly (less jitter when zooming in) and have it load faster.
New features will simplify sharing the map, like the URL updating to the exact map point you are on. Just go where you want to, and copy the link. For example, here is the link for this specific point on the map:
It now also supports a full screen feature:
There are also smaller fixes for various issues, and other changes that will hopefully improve the experience overall. Additionaly, there has been an even larger overhaul for editing the maps, which you can read about here. We're very happy to be able to provide this newly improved map system, and hope it serves you all well. If you have any feedback, suggestions, questions about the new map system, please see this talk page.
Ascent of the Arcanist Bundle Available — July 18, 2023

The bundle is free in the Crown Store until July 28 at 2pm UTC for players who have reached level 10 on an Arcanist character. To confirm your eligibility, you can check whether you have unlocked the Neophyte Researcher achievement.

Epic Games Store Giving Out Free Copies of Elder Scrolls Online from July 20–27 — July 13, 2023
Elder Scrolls Online is currently free on the Epic Games Store from July 20th to July 27th, which will coincide with the game arriving at the digital store. EGS regularly provides its users a free game every week which, if claimed during the window of availability, are free to keep and play. If you have any interest at all in using EGS and playing ESO at any point in the future, this would be a prime window to get the game at no cost. Buying the game through EGS at any point this year will also grant the Sigil of the Alliance War back bling in Fortnite through your linked account.
We have numerous articles about Elder Scrolls Online if you wish to learn more. You can view the Epic Games Store page for ESO here.
