A new trailer is out for The Elder Scrolls Online, and it shows off some story and gameplay for the upcoming Flames of Ambition dungeon DLC.

p>A new trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online shows off the upcoming Flames of Ambition DLC. Players can get a deeper look at the gameplay coming in this additional dungeon pack for The Elder Scrolls Online.

While typically a single player experience, ZeniMax Online Studios developed a MMO to complement the series. The Elder Scrolls Online continues the tradition of character customization, while also bringing together the many regions of Tamriel. The Gates of Oblivion expansion is releasing soon and this trailer gives a snapshot of the future.

The video starts off with a rather dark tone, panning over cultists worshipping at an altar of Dagon. Long time Elder Scrolls fans will recognize this being as one of the Daedric Princes, and the main antagonist of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion. The cultists have brought ruin to the lands of Tamriel in their quest to command power they do not understand. Players will seek to end the plotting by completing two dangerous challenges. From the trailer description, the Cauldron and Black Drake Villa dungeons will begin the Gates of Oblivion adventure.

While the gameplay from the trailer is vague, it does look like fans will have their hands full. Starting off, there looks to be plenty of cultists to take on, each with their own magical abilities. Fire seems to be a common theme, as the trailer showcases the main character escaping from a barrage of flames. Many of the enemies shown in the video look to be summons from fire as well, so players should prepare to deal with burning targets. There is a minotaur thrown in for good measure too, and the end of the trailer reveals that Dagon will appear in The Elder Scrolls Online at some point.

With its release back in 2014, The Elder Scrolls Online has seen consistent expansions and updates. While it is a far different game today, even allowing travel across all regions, it still maintains the lore of the series. Bringing in a familiar face from Oblivion should be exciting for those who enjoy the world of The Elder Scrolls.

But with around 7 years into the title, some gamers may not find a dungeon pack that exciting. In comparison to other modern titles, gameplay in the MMO can feel a bit antiquated or repetitive. No doubt these two dungeons are not on the list of additions fans want for The Elder Scrolls Online. Nevertheless, the Flames of Ambition DLC will provide some extra content to explore as the Gate of Oblivion adventure unfolds.

The Elder Scrolls Online is available on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One, with PS5 and Xbox Series X versions also in development.
