As part of our year-round Gates of Oblivion main story, in The Blackwood Chapter, players must uncover daedric plots and vicious conspiracies that consume the region. Discover how these conspiracies are linked to the Prince of Destruction and his gruesome plans for Tamriel. While Blackwood is a story on its own, the events inside will also advance the quest for the Gates of Oblivion, which will conclude later in 2021.
The brand new Companions System is coming soon, designed to ensure that players never again feel alone in their adventures, whether playing alone or with friends. You can choose one of two new Companions that you will unlock through certain missions of the Blackwood main story. You can then choose your own playstyle by choosing the equipment of these Companions and leveling up their abilities. Each Companion has their own personality, likes and dislikes, and unique questlines. And without forgetting; be careful what you do, for your actions will affect your harmony with your Companion.
Here’s a quick look at some of the exciting new content coming to Blackwood:
- New Companions System
- New District: Blackwood
