With Craglorn now playable in ESO, ZeniMax Online has moved their focus to the game’s second major update — featuring the Veteran version of Crypt of Hearts. Like our other Veteran Dungeons, it continues the story and cranks up the challenge with deadly new enemies and bosses. Crypt of Hearts has some of our toughest fights yet, and we can’t wait to see you and your group go up against them. To get a taste of what you’re in for, check out our new playthrough video.
More information about Update 2 is coming soon. In the meantime, here are other ESO highlights worth checking out…

At ElderScrollsOnline.com, the newest ‘Ask Us Anything’ feature delves into community questions on Dungeon gameplay. Here’s a sampling:
Will there be a lockout timer for dungeons, or can we run the same dungeon with different friends over and over if we want to? – Jeramiah Linscott
We don’t currently have any plans to use lockout timers. You can run through a dungeon as often as you like.

Back to the games, here’s the latest on Tango Gameworks’ survival horror game coming next year. During the show, Team Tango demoed the game every hour… so there’s plenty to to share.
Gamespot — Watch Pete Hines interview filmed live from Gamespot’s E3 command center.
Giant Bomb — Patrick Klepek puts on his reporter hat and talks survival horror with Shinji Mikami.
NZ Gamer — “All of this was delivered by way of the grimy, dirty aesthetic of the game, and compounded by a claustrophobic level design and some truly disturbing experiences.”
Forbes — “The demo included everything one would expect from classic survival horror combined with top-notch graphics and audio. If the demo is any indicator, The Evil Within is shaping up to be a dark room delight.”
Denkiphile — “The feeling of powerlessness here is something that gamers have been pining for. Something that all survival horror games have been lacking as of late.”
TechnoBuffalo — “The gruesome character models, unsettling atmosphere, and copious amounts of gore are already enough to make one shiver. Given the history of Shinji Mikami’s skill with spooks and Bethesda’s knack for immersion, this added layer of uncertainty might just make this the scariest game ever created.”
Exophase — “Survival horror fans should take note of The Evil Within, it’s shaping up to be one of the most satisfying entries in the genre to date.”
Explosion — “It simply looks fantastic. I can’t wait for it.”
CV-Games — “The Evil Within could really be the next version of Resident Evil with the way things are looking. However, I applaud Mikami for branching out and trying to create a new IP, with new ideas, and a new cast and backstory.”
More E3 coverage to come, including a preview roundup for Wolfenstein tomorrow.
