From Press Release:
The Elder Scrolls Online Update 40 base-game patch is now available on PC/Mac. This free update introduces an all-new PvE challenge, the Endless Archive, as well as a host of new features and additions to The Elder Scrolls Online. Update 40 and the Endless Archive will arrive on Xbox and PlayStation consoles November 14. More details on the Endless Archive and Update 40 can be found below.
The Endless Archive is an all-new PvE challenge featuring a unique never-ending dungeon-like activity that is free for all ESO players. Players battle their way through dynamic and randomly generated stages filled with monsters and boss encounters. Players can choose to go at it solo or team up with a fellow player or Companion to complete four Cycles (each made up of three Stages and a boss battle) with a final and fifth boss battle to complete an Arc. The challenge doesn’t end there as players can traverse deeper into more Stages, Cycles, and Arcs, with the difficulty gradually increasing as they advance. As players progress, they will unlock a host of unique rewards not found in any other activity in the game. This includes a broad selection of collectibles, including a mount, pet, cosmetics, and all-new Class sets.
More details on the Endless Archive experience can be found here.
Update 40 also features many updates including a new Group Finder which allows players to create parties for any of ESO’s in-game activities. This new tool also offers more customization for the criteria that group members must meet, including these examples:
- Player CP levels
- Whether they use in-game voice chat
- Their playstyle
- A desired group role composition
Also, this update introduces Grand Master Crafting Stations, letting players merge all their home’s attuned crafting stations for a crafting skill line into one furnishing. Along with an assortment of other updates including a rebalance of Jewelry Crafting and Quest XP & Gold Standardization.
