The Elder Scrolls Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) which has had its fair share of ups and downs. The game launched in somewhat of a broken state, but over the course of the past few years, it's become an engaging and fair experience. You can easily spend thousands of hours exploring the world of Tamriel if you choose.
The MMORPG takes place in one connected world. Whether you play alone or with companions, the game's combat system allows you to focus on tactics. You can use any weapon at any time, and customize your abilities to play the way you want. There are hundreds of quests and other activities. The goal is to uncover the mysteries of the land and seek heroic quests on your own schedule. You can explore the far reaches of Skyrim or the mysterious lands of Morrowind.
Aside from releasing major expansions like "Summerset", The Elder Scrolls Online gets smaller dungeons and other mission-based add-ons from time to time. The latest one is called "Wolfhunter", and it significantly alters the game. We've been playing it for the past day, and so far it's been a lot of fun despite the fact that it's not as deep as some of the other additions.
Wolfhunter mainly adds two new dungeons called "Moon Hunter Keep" and "March of Sacrifices". There are new gear sets and collectibles to find here as well. The free update includes a new competitive map called "Istirus Outpost", the "Respec 2.0" system, and a major overhaul to "Werewolf" skills.
Aside from the new areas to explore, Respec 2.0 has to be the most exciting change. According to Bethesda, you can now change individual abilities one by one, rather than being forced to add all of your skills from scratch. This means that players have more control over their builds.
Wolfhunter is a paid expansion which costs 1,500 "Crowns" from The Elder Scrolls Online's store. A free update also rolled out to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users, which brought a series of improvements to the game. PC players have had access to these changes for the past few weeks.
If you're a fan of the game, be sure to give Wolfhunter a go. Even if you don't purchase the add-on, you should still give The Elder Scrolls Online a try because of the free improvements in the latest update. The game looks amazing on consoles, and even achieves native 4K resolution on Xbox One X!

I've been playing this game for about a month, and I have to say it's extremely "meh". I'll keep going and hopefully it'll get better. Finding quest has been a choir lately.
