Recently launched MMO The Elder Scrolls Online will receive its first new chunk of content later this month.

Craglorn, according to Bethesda, promises to be the first adventure zone for The Elder Scrolls Online, and will feature content geared towards high-level players. Included are new quests for four players, and some new 12-player trials.

The area will feature its own mystery, revolving around constellations that have gone missing from the sky, and the townsfolk will talk about rumours of celestial beings that are probably up to no good.

"There's a lot of different monsters we throw at you and, of course, there are boss monsters that have interesting tactics you haven't encountered anywhere in the game before," said creative director Paul Sage in a trailer for the new content.

Craglorn will be free for all subscribers to The Elder Scrolls Online. The content will land around a pivotal moment for the MMO, as customers come to the end of the free month of playtime included with the game and must decide whether to keep subscribing or move on.

Speaking to GameSpot in March, Bethesda marketing man Pete Hines defended the $14.99 monthly subscription charge for The Elder Scrolls Online, saying it will allow for "significant" updates that are more than just the odd "funny hat."
