Zenimax Online has released a new trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online‘s first content update Craglorn that takes a look at the new 12-player Trials that are being added.

Trials require 12 players and are only available to players who have reached Veteran status. “One of the first things you’ll notice about Trials is that they bring a new experience to ESO designed to test even the toughest veterans. You’ll need a group of 12 to take them on, but they’re not just dungeons that require a large group—we’re applying additional pressure,” the developer explained.

“Your team will only have a limited number of resurrections available, and additional rewards will be granted to those who defeat the weekly challenge with one of the top times across the megaserver.

“Trials also feature the most complex and difficult encounters we’ve designed so far. They demand skill, adaptability, and coordination from every member of the group.”

A key feature of trials is the “Soul Reservoir,” this basically puts a life limit on your team of 12 players. The team shares a collective revive total, meaning that players must careful choose who should be saved in a battle. Once they are all used and you wipe, it’s game over.

As well as giant bosses, players will also encounter “bannermen” in trials. These are powerful enemies that each need to be dealt with in a specific way. “One of our bannermen, for instance, has a nasty power that turns your group’s area of effect heals against you, making them cause damage for the duration. On top of devastating abilities like this, you’ll often face more than one bannerman, and your group needs to recognize the greatest threats and handle them quickly.”

Craglorn is scheduled to release later this month.
