Bethesda Gameplay Day

This is the second and final part of my write-up of PAX East 2018. 
In part 1 - Thursday and Friday - I mentioned how I got a chance to have a casual chat with the creative director of the Elder Scrolls: Legends and try the demo of The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, and talk about the other non-ES-related things I saw there. 

The third day of PAX East was mostly Bethesda-focused for those of us from the UESP.  It was the last day that most of us had badges for, though most of our day would be spent at the Bethesda Gameplay Day event, which was being held next door to the convention center.   Be sure to check out our interview with Matt Firor and Rich Lambert that we conducted at this event; you can read it here.

So here's how my last, mostly ES-focused day of PAX went...

Two days into PAX East 2018!  Several of us from the UESP are here for the weekend, and more are showing up for the Bethesda event on Saturday!   I figured I’d summarize my experience in case anyone was interested and wants to know what it’s like to attend an event like that (I personally always bugged wiki admin Jeancey for info in the past.)

Before I get into that: FYI to those attending, Bethesda/ZOS don’t have a booth, but you can try out Summerset in the PS4 area: download the Experience Playstation app and reserve a time (sign-ups start at 9am each day).

So here’s a summary of everything I did in my first two days of PAX: I got to talk to a Legends dev, try out Summerset, and see plenty of non-ES stuff….

ESO Update 17: Dragon Bones Datamining

We're Going to the Summerset Isle!

 

At the UESP, we are known for providing informative and well-researched content about The Elder Scrolls series of video games, and presenting this on the UESPWiki. However, this does not stop us from engaging in speculation of future Elder Scrolls content—ESO, in this case. We have uncovered a huge trove of data-mined assets that suggest not only what and where the next ESO chapter will be, but some of its systems, famous characters, locales, and story, too. We will be showcasing our findings and subsequent speculation in a series of blog posts, dubbed 'We're Going to the Summerset Isle!', a reference to the Vvardenfell datamine back in May 2016.


Disclaimers:

 

Everything shown here was data-mined from the recent Dragon Bones update on both the Live servers and the PTS. Because of this, everything is subject to change. That being said, we are fairly confident that the assets shown here will be used in the upcoming Chapter and subsequent DLCs. Here is the official word on data mining from ZOS:


"You are welcome to post about and discuss speculations and datamined discoveries. Just know that we don’t comment on them, and anything datamined is subject to change or even removal. I would advise placing a disclaimer on anything you put on UESP that is a speculation or based on datamined discoveries noting as much."

ESO Update 17 Data Mining

We're Going to the Summerset Isle!


At the UESP, we are known for providing informative and well-researched content about The Elder Scrolls series of video games and presenting this on the UESPWiki. However, this does not stop us from engaging in speculation of future Elder Scrolls contentESO, in this case. We have uncovered a huge trove of data mined assets that suggest not only what and where the next ESO chapter will be, but some of its systems, famous characters, locales, and story, too. We will be showcasing our findings and subsequent speculation in a series of blog posts, dubbed 'We're Going to the Summerset Isle!', a reference to the Vvardenfell data mine back in May 2016. The second blog post of this series is going to be covering the Summerset Isle and Spellcrafting, but first, we would like to begin with a few important disclaimers:

Most of what is shown here was data mined from the recent Dragon Bones PTS update, and as such, everything is subject to change. Some of the older assets are associated with Spellcrafting and have not yet been shown before to our knowledge, which is why we are showcasing them at the end of this post. That being said, we are fairly confident that the assets shown here will be used in the upcoming Chapter and subsequent DLCs. Here is the official word on data mining from ZOS:


"You are welcome to post about and discuss speculations and datamined discoveries. Just know that we don't comment on them, and anything datamined is subject to change or even removal.
