New Updates Incoming for The Elder Scrolls Online – Waking Flame DLC and Update 31

The newest downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls Online, titled Waking Flame, has been released to PC and Mac players, with the content to be available to those on the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 a couple of weeks from now on 8 September 2021.

Following on from the events featured in The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood, and with the schemes of Mehrunes Dagon persisting, this Waking Flame DLC will see the experience continued through two new four-player dungeons – The Dread Cellar and Red Petal Bastion.

Players can purchase the Waking Flame game pack through the in-game Crown Store and is included for all who subscribe to ESO Plus once it launches for their respective platform.

Regardless of if you are keen on the downloadable content, Update 31 is also rolling out, bringing a number of Quality of Life improvements for those on all platforms. According to Bethesda, these include:

  • Dynamic resolution scaling enabled for Performance Mode on Xbox Series X|S and PS5, scaling resolution on Xbox Series X and PS5 between 1080p-2160p and on Xbox Series S between 1080p-1440p
  • For all consoles except for the base PS4 and base Xbox One, a new HDR mode known as “Default” arrives in the Waking Flame DLC, a brand-new setting to keep the intended look of the game’s original artwork while taking advantage of the increased range
    • For players who prefer the way ESO looks in HDR right now, that mode will remain an option under the name “Vibrant”
  • For PC Players, the console render multithreading setting that debuted with Console Enhanced in June will arrive on PC through a new opt-in beta setting, a feature intended to increase frame rates
