How Companions Work In Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood | Play For All 2021

Tamriel is once again put in a dire situation as the gates of Oblivion are opened in the latest Elder Scrolls Online's chapter, Blackwood. Learn more about its newest features, including companions, in this interview.

GameSpot's Kurt Indovina had the chance to sit down with Elder Scrolls Online creative director Rich Lambert and ZeniMax Online Studios studio director Matt Firor to talk about the MMORPG's next chapter, Blackwood.

Part of the year-long Gates of Oblivion saga, which was first kicked off in the Flames of Ambition DLC, Blackwood puts Tamriel into dire circumstances as Mehrunes Dagon reigns terror across the land with the help of the Daedra.

In the above interview, Rich Lambert and Matt Firor detail Blackwood's many new features, one of the most prominent being the addition of companions. Companions will give players the chance to venture with an NPC, allowing for a more traditional experience similar to single-player Bethesda classics like Skyrim or Oblivion. Additionally, Blackwood sees the return of areas that haven't been explored in the Elder Scrolls series since its first installment, Arena.

Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood is available now for PC, Mac, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia.
