Return to Western Skyrim in the brand new chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online's year-long Dark Heart of Skyrim event - Greymoor. Players will work to uncover the reason behind the dreaded Harrowstorms, storms that turn innocent people into much less innocent Harrowed. The adventure is full of werewolves, witches, and vampires (oh my). Those ready to protect the world from these forces will have to delve into the wondrously mysterious Blackreach, a stunning underground city. Player's must ready themselves, this isn't the Skyrim they've come to know.

For what it’s worth, this story is a step up above the rest, giving The Elder Scrolls Online a story that it needed, that it deserved, and even lifts up one of the strongest NPCs in the title yet: Lyris Titanborn. Lyris has been underplayed for quite some time and now that she’s finally getting her chance to shine next to the previously introduced vampire, Finorian. Greymoor gives a lot of hope for the future of The Elder Scrolls Online and shows that even minor touches such as the ones this one has gotten, can improve the overall experience moving forward.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is the fourth major expansion for the Zenimax MMO. We return to the incredible Skyrim in a rather dark story with vampires as the central axis. Despite being quite continuist and adding few new features - the remodeling of the vampire subclass and the search for the most important antiques - Skyrim wins our hearts again, although it is clear that fresh ideas are needed for the future.

Elder Scrolls Online deserves its position as one of the premier MMORPG experiences, and Greymoor upholds that, even if it doesn't quite do justice to Skyrim's vast legacy.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor confirms the excellent premises already seen with previous expansions of the game, expanding the experience without ever seeing a real end. Zenimax does not sincerely miss a shot, bringing home the umpteenth strike not without flaws, but the game remains a must buy in the library of fans of the franchise. The vampires acquire new interesting abilities on the rpg front, pity that the rework seems a little incomplete.

Greymoor is everything you can expect from an expansion that promises The Dark Heart of Skyrim.

If you're a fan of ESO, then the Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor chapter will add a much needed area into this vast world that boasts some graphically impressive places that really makes you wonder at the marvel of Skyrim. While the main story is quite cliched, including the villain, there's still plenty to find, fight and do along the way with engaging NPC's, clever enemies and more exploration then you can poke a sword at. Furthermore, the main game may take you around 15 hours to complete but if you invest in additional exploration, you could easily double this time and then some!

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor introduces plenty of new content and an interesting main story campaign.

Even though Greymoor adds about 20 hours of story content, depending on how many side quests you're willing to take on, the expansion keeps to the same formula. Instead of bringing meaningful changes to the world of ESO, Greymoor piggybacks on the previous installments to find new audiences. That being said, I do recommend the new expansion, just don't expect any mind-blowing improvements.

ZOS has done an amazing job creating the Western Skyrim and Blackreach zones for the latest expansion, and as strange as it sounds, adventuring throughout the icy landscape is a welcome relief from the greenery of Elsweyr and Summerset.

You’ll have plenty to do while waiting for this fall’s release of The Dark Heart of Skyrim’s finale. If Greymoor is anything to go off of, it’ll be worth the wait.

This was clearly a labour of love. The team creating the Elder Scrolls Online sure love the world of Tamriel, and it shows when they’re able to create a great chapter that stands on its own merit; even when it’s standing on the foundations of the fifth game in the series. Greymoor has a short but exhilarating story that left me ready for what’s to come in the future. Western Skyrim is gorgeous and a joy to explore. It gothic setting is a refreshing change in ESO, and if what’s to come is as good as this, I’ll happily find myself coming back to enjoy what’s on offer.

A deeply challenging adventure in the Western Skyrim, Greymoor indicates a true maturing of ZeniMax philosophy for The Elder Scrolls Online.

‎Excellent extension of content, especially for the addition of new lands to the West of Skyrim. A return to already known areas that is seasoned with new elements, archaeology and improvements in vampires and that will delight fans of the title.‎

Greymoor may be a paint by numbers expansion to The Elder Scrolls Online, but it still manages to be a nostalgic return to the glory days of Skyrim that is enhanced by the fascinating Antiquities system and scenic locales.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is the most ambitious TESO expansion yet. However, the world exploration is a bit lackluster and there is a few other gameplay issues. All and all, if you're waiting for the next mainline installment of the series, there's enjoyment to be had here.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is a solid new Chapter in the Elder Scrolls saga, despite hewing too closely to tradition at times. The main story may be a bit of a bust, but the variety of excellent side-stories on offer proves The Elder Scrolls Online is one of the best story-oriented MMOs on the market.

The atmosphere is spot on, and even the less interesting quests offer up some beautiful scenery. And let's be honest, that's why you've come anyway, isn't it?

Though The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor represents a good jumping in point for lapsed players and newcomers alike, it sticks a little too rigidly to its shopworn design tendencies to really excel, while elsewhere, a smattering of bugs threaten to take the sheen off what is otherwise a highly entertaining expansion to one of the better MMORPGs on the market.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is an enjoyable experience, but ultimately falls flat when comparing it to the rest of the franchise.
