One of the big features coming with Blackwood is the Companion System, which will allow players to enlist the help of an NPC companion that will help them on their adventures.
If you are curious to know more about the system you can tune in to the Bethesda Twitch channel on Friday, April 16 at 4 PM EDT, where Lead Systems Designer Phil Draven and Senior Content Designer Janet Priblo will showcase the new system.
In other Blackwood news, a post on the ESO site recently shared some info on a new type of monster coming with the expansion, the Ruinach.
“Ruinachs are four-armed monstrosities that serve as Dagon’s elite marauders,” explains Leamon Tuttle, ESO’s Loremaster. “They don’t possess that ruthless cunning and strategic brilliance of the Dremora, but they make up for it in brute strength and unflinching loyalty to Dagon personally.”
