“Elder Scrolls Online” posted on their Google+ page that they will be coming out with the 12-player Trials along with the “Craglorn,” which is the site’s first Adventure Zone.

Although there was no official date set for the release of the “Craglorn,” GameRant estimated that since the 30 day free-trial of the Online game is about to expire, (the game came out on April 4, 2014) the free trial of “Craglorn” will immediately set in. 

The official website describes that the Trials will bring new experience designed to challenge the most veteran gamers. Players will have a limited number of resurrections, there will be the most complex and difficult encounters, and additional rewards will only be granted to “those who defeat the weekly challenge with one of the top times across the megaserver.”


The game has already been tested with the Quality Assurance team and the response was “awesome.”

While developing the new Trials, the ESO team is also dealing with glitches in the most recent version of the game. For fans who were having issues with the recently release online game, lead developer of the game, Matt Fiorer wrote an address on the website’s forum page. 

“We are doing everything we can to combat the gold spammers and bots – especially ones that “camp” dungeon bosses,” Fiorer said, according to Joystiq. Fiorer said that the hold up on focusing on the game’s bugs is due to the developers mainly working on the back end of the game regularly trying to catch spammers and bots, and ban fake accounts.

“Fighting black market activity like gold selling spam and farming bots is a marathon, not a sprint, but we will do whatever we can to reduce their impact on the game,” he wrote. According to him, black market activity accounts for 85 percent of Customer Service calls and emails. For those with access to the website’s forum, click here to read the address.
