Clockwork City Opens for The Elder Scrolls Online Console Players

You know the steps to this dance by now: the PC version gets the shiny, then the Xbox and PS4 players. And so it goes for The Elder Scrolls Online’s new Clockwork City console release, introducing the new DLC for purchase and the features of Update 16 for all players.

I’ve literally written this already, so let’s just do a brief review of all the new things in case clicking that link is tough to do: Clockwork City is the titular new region available with the update, letting players into Sotha Sil’s penultimate creation. The DLC offers 10 hours of questing and a new Trial among other features at a cost of 2,000 Crowns.

For those unwilling or unable to spend money, Update 16 has you covered with balance changes, the Crazy King PvP Battleground, a Trait Tracker, and the Transmutation system to let you customize Traits on weapons and armor.

In addition to the update, ESO has decided to join the Xbox One X Enhancement Club, bringing native 4K resolution, “true HDR”, and other pretty graphical tricks like enhanced draw distance and real-time water reflections.

Our Thoughts

We’re not yucking on anyone’s yum here: our own guided tour of the Clockwork City found plenty of new things to enjoy for players of all sorts, and we hope that console fans of ESO will enjoy their adventures with the latest update.

PC players, as usual, will be the first to get the new content with a launch on Monday, October 23rd. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players will see the DLC available on Tuesday, November 7th. The new content will not require ESO: Morrowind to play.

The upcoming DLC arrives free for ESO Plus subscribers or will cost 2,000 Crowns for the standard edition. The new content will also be available in a Collector’s Bundle which packs in a Clockwork Skeevaton pet, a Kagouti Fabricant mount, and five Crown Experience Scrolls at a cost of 4,000 Crowns.

For those eager to get a taste of the metallic goodness (eww), a free prologue quest is now live for all players. The new quest, “Of Knives and Long Shadows”, is available at any faction’s local Mages Guild by reading an Order of the Eye Dispatch note.

Our Thoughts

The mechanical creations of Sotha Sil have always been one of the more interesting parts of the Elder Scrolls canon so we’re most definitely looking forward to the arrival of Clockwork City. Here’s hoping fans of the MMO have a good time once the DLC goes live.

ESO: Clockwork City is Full of Mystery, Apparently

The Elder Scrolls Online has offered up yet another Clockwork City preview blog, this time focused on the mystery surrounding Sotha Sil’s grand creation. Seriously, there’s like, no less than four references in the first two sentences about how secret and hidden the location is in the post.

“The first thing you have to know about Sotha Sil is that we don’t know anything about Sotha Sil!” says principal writer Leamon Tuttle. That sense of mystery and secretive machination permeates the entire preview, from the Apostles and Tarnished that make up the society of the area to the assumed purposes of the Fabricant creatures that prowl the wilderness outside of the city.

The preview not only covers a great deal of lore about the Clockwork City location but also provides the briefest idea of what will bring players to the zone. “You must unravel a Daedric conspiracy, but the entire realm is a mystery in and of itself, and its true nature and purpose might be the greater riddle,” teases the post.

You can read up on the questions posed by the new DLC here.

Our Thoughts

Okay, we get it. Clockwork City is a mysterious place. That said, this healthy chunk of lore information does make us curious about what the new location and perhaps Sotha Sil’s motivations are. Unless, of course, that remains hidden too.

The Elder Scrolls Online Shows Off Clockwork City’s Locations

In case you missed out on the livestream that happened last week, a new dev blog from ESO has you covered as it provides players a region-by-region look at various Clockwork City locations that will open up with the DLC’s arrival.

clockwork city locations

The blog offers a brief glimpse at six specific areas of Clockwork City, the mechanical realm of Tribunal member Sotha Sil along with general ideas of the sort of gameplay players will find while visiting these locales.

The central hub of Clockwork City is the Brass Fortress, described as the only safe haven for visitors and residents. From there, things become a lot more dangerous, with the Mechanical Fundament running beneath the Fortress and the Halls of Regulation Delve location being two such dangerous locales. In addition to the Halls of Regulation, Clockwork City will also offer up the Shadow Cleft Delve, which sees players transported through a shadowy portal into a Daedric realm in search of a missing NPC.

Finally, two other locatiosn offer a peek at some of the more group-focused challenges awaiting players. The Sanctuary of Verification houses one of the DLC’s two World Bosses, while the Asylum Sanctorum Trial area pits players against three Dunmer Saints whom Sotha Sil transformed into immortal machines. The Trial offers a unique wrinkle; the ability for players to either take on these three creations one by one or all at once, with unique rewards offered depending on how the group plans to proceed.

You can check out the complete tour of these areas on the Elder Scrolls Online website.

Our Thoughts

These new areas are certainly fascinating and appear to have a pretty decent chunk of content for players of the MMO. What do you think about Clockwork City? Which area do you think you’ll explore first?
