ESO: Flames of Ambition Gameplay Trailer Released
Peter Donnell / 7 months ago
This week saw the release of the latest DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online. The Flames of Ambition DLC contains two impressive new dungeons and opens us up to the Gates of Oblivion year-long content cycle, as well as the mighty Update 29 which we discussed yesterday.
While the base game has seen significant changes this week, the new content offers up some welcome additions of its own. Namely, it seems that a new stamina boosting armour set is the new focus for a lot of stamina based DD’s, so expect to find plenty of players gunning for this new content for that set.
Check out the gameplay trailer below. Once again it looks like their dungeon design team has absolutely smashed it, it looks fantastic.
“The Gates of Oblivion year-long adventure starts here! Uncover the dread plans of a new Daedric cult and race against time to save a mysterious tome from a raging inferno in Flames of Ambition, a new dungeon DLC game pack for The Elder Scrolls Online. What you discover within the Cauldron and Black Drake Villa begins an adventure that will take you to the Blackwood Chapter and beyond!” – Bethesda YouTube

Black Drake Villa
Players will team up with the adventurous Wood Elf scout Eveli Sharp-Arrow and search the hidden archives of a once-proud mansion that is now home to monsters and arsonists. Players can learn more details more about Black Drake Villa here.
“Eveli is here at the behest of a mysterious benefactor who sent her looking for something very particular within this secret library,” explains Mike Finnigan, ESO’s Encounters Lead. “She is always up for an adventure, and I think that’s what makes her so appealing and such a fun character to work with. Her stakes in the fight are the same as yours, and she loves to go where the road takes her.”
The cult of the Waking Flame has enslaved the local townsfolk and now excavates sinister ruins deep within a long-forgotten mine. With the help of the Dremora Lyranth, players will battle their way through Daedric beasts and cultists, free the captives, and put a stop to their plans. Players can read more about The Cauldron here.
“Lyranth is a great character because she very much has her own agenda, and no one is really quite sure what it is,” explains Mike Finnigan, ESO’s Encounters Lead. “She is mercurial and aloof, but her motives often align with the players, and her rebellious nature is very endearing to the community.”
