Elder Scrolls Legends is joining it’s MMORPG cousin in returning to fan favourite location, the Clockwork City.

The card game based on the world and lore of the epic Elder Scrolls series from Bethesda is expanding again, following on from the popular Fall of the Dark Brotherhood story add-on and the Heroes of Skyrim expansion pack. Taking players back to the clockwork city in a similar way that Elder Scrolls Online did recently with its own new expansion (more on that later).

Return to Clockwork City is set hundreds of years after the fall of Sotha Sil, a character well known to Elder Scrolls fans. You’ll set off on another epic, large spanning journey into the infamous Clockwork City and take on its inhabitants to strike ‘riches beyond imagination’.

According to Bethesda, ‘The road won’t be easy, however. Nightmarish abominations, traps, and betrayals all stand between treasure hunters and their fabled loot as the fate of the lost city hangs in the balance.’

The expansion consists of

  •  50 plus new collectable cards to add to your existing decks or build new ones with.
  • 35 new story missions spanning 3 acts with all-new challenge scenarios.
  • New mechanic, ‘Assemble’ – Sees players play an ‘Assemble’ creature, and choose one of two bonuses. That bonus is then granted to both the creature and every Factotum in the player’s hand and entire deck.
  • Another brand new mechanic, Treasure Hunt’ – Whilst in play, these new creatures will watch each card the player draws to see if it’s the treasure they have been seeking. Once the player draws everything the hunters want, a reward is granted.
  • ‘Fabricants’ – Brand new creatures ‘born of both flesh and metal’ that reward players for playing neutral cards. These five new creatures offer some exciting new deckbuilding options.

The new expansion differs from the ESO expansion which sees players return to a vibrant Clockwork city, first seen in ESIII and instead shows the city in ruin and decay, plighted by constructs and treasure hunters.

The new game mechanics are exciting, especially the ability to construct new creatures, this lends itself well to the fluid gameplay of a strategic card game like ESL.

The Clockwork City expansions for both The Elder Scrolls Legends and the Elder Scrolls Online are available now.
