Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v5.3.0 and the start of the Dark Heart of Skyrim with the Harrowstorm DLC game pack! Harrowstorm introduces two new 4-player dungeons – Icereach and Unhallowed Grave – in addition to a number of new item sets and collectibles. Our biggest focus for this update was further improving game performance, with an emphasis on frame rate stability, ultimately resulting in fewer drops in your game’s framerate. The combat changes you’ll see support this goal, which you can read more about in this forum post.

Additionally, please take note for this update, we’re refreshing our patching and file manifest data to remove duplicate files and older data that is no longer needed. This will result in major improvements to load times, streaming of assets, reliability of asset loads, and a reduction of space taken up by the client on your hard drive. In order to achieve this, you will be required to re-download the entirety of the game for PTS. To this end, the size of this update is 68.55GB. Note you do not have to delete anything manually; just let the patcher run on its own.

All PC/Mac North American characters have been copied, and a Harrowstorm template is also available for you to use. Thanks in advance for all your feedback on this update!
