Some silly artwork from The Elder Scrolls: Legends' Chaos Arena event

If you're a fan of Hearthstone's Tavern Brawl, and if you consider the mad god Sheogorath a lovable companion, you'll be glad to hear that the "Chaos Arena" event is coming to The Elder Scrolls: Legends this Wednesday. The Chaos Arena will last from December 14 through December 19, bringing with it a bunch of new and completely ridiculous scenarios, as well as a couple of interesting new lane conditions.

For those of you that might not enjoy this sort of thing, allow me to just say that the solo and versus mode will remain active throughout the event, so don't worry about the entire game descending into madness. But for the rest of you, here's what Sheogorath's new Chaos Arena has in store:

Current Scenarios for PvE

Duel – Both players start with a 2/1 Gladiator in opposite lanes

Shields Up – Both players start with 0/4 Guards in opposite lanes

All Out Brawl – Both players start with Broken Bottle, which strikes a random enemy for 1 damage at the start of your turn

New Scenarios for Chaos Arena

Hero’s Call – Before the game, shuffle three unique creatures into each player’s deck

Your Own Worst Enemy – Players switch decks at the start of the game

Sheogorath’s Game – Both players start with Wabbajack

On a Roll – Players start with a Sweet Roll in each lane

Power Unleashed – Players start with 3 additional magicka

To the Death! – Player one starts with a Gladiator Arena in play

Spawning Pool – Both players start with a Slaughterfish in different lanes

New Lane Conditions for Chaos Arena

Zoo – When you summon a creature in this lane, transform it into a random animal

Flanking Lane – When a creature is summoned in this lane, give friendly creatures in the other lane +1/+0

While the the new modifiers might be completely 'out there', the win conditions and rewards are exactly the same as before. In other words, its three losses and you're out! But as an added little bonus, especially for those among you that might not enjoy this sort of random wackiness, you'll be granted a card pack just for logging in at any point during the event. It might take a little while for it to materialize, but don't worry, you'll receive it soon enough.

If you would like to give The Elder Scrolls: Legends a try, or just learn a little bit more before deciding on a course of action, head on over to the official website. You'll find everything from gameplay trailers, to beginner's guides, and even lore articles over there, so you should be covered quite nicely in terms of information. Have fun!
