Now Playing: The Elder Scrolls: Legends: Heroes Of Skyrim Trailer - E3 2017

Bethesda's E3 2017 press conference is currently underway, and it just revealed that The Elder Scrolls Online has passed a new, impressive milestone for registered players: 10 million people have played the game. This is up from 8.5 million earlier this year.

Bethesda also concurrently announced on Twitter that it's releasing two new DLC packs for the game. Called The Horns of the Reach and Clockwork City, not much is known about them at the moment. They launch later this year, and you can see a few screenshots below.

The company also highlighted the recent Morrowind expansion to the game. You can read more about the new content here. Among other things, it adds a new area, story, and player vs. player battleground. The expansion costs $40 if you already own ESO, or you can buy both the base game and ESO: Morrowind for $60. The collector's edition is $60 if you own the base game and $80 if not.

So me and a couple of friends of mine count for a bunch... we played about 30 minutes...

Big deal...meh!

GTA V sold 11,210 millions within a day and now have sold more than 80 millions!

In 2010 World of Warcraft had 12 millions ACTIVE players!

@silv3rst0rm: Who asked for you to be impressed? Honestly, you must have a very inflated estimation of yourself. While I'm not interested in paying for this game, I played it, and it was much better than I'd have expected. I didn't care at all for Skyrim. I found it to be completely overrated, generic, and just very big (which is cool, but not enough for me to get invested in it). Conversely, I found myself really enjoying my demo version of this game.

You sound like you have some personal stake in having this game fail. Why?

It's not the game I'm not impressed about, it's the fact that they say in this post it reached an "impressive Milestone".

That's what I'm not totally impressed about!
There's gotta be plenty of games whose more than 10m people played.
To call this a milestone would mean that a large bunch of games reach milestones...

@ProjektInsanity: Are we supposed to know who that guy is ? Maybe he is famous or something .. and maybe we should care if he is not impressed ??
