Teased during the Video Game Awards back in December and officially announced today, the Dark Heart of Skyrim is a year-long story event in Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls Online, giving players the chance to explore iconic locations 1,000 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V.

There’s been a little Skyrim in the massively multiplayer online Elder Scrolls game since it launched, but this year’s ongoing event opens up the frozen Northern lands of Tamriel. Along with overland areas, a large portion of the playable area in the expansion is Blackreach, the dark underground world beneath Skyrim. There’ll be vampires, werewolves, and other creatures that love the dark lurking about.
