This Elder Scrolls Online hot sauce has us extremely hungry

Elder Scrolls Online Hot Sauce

To promote the launch of The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood, Bethesda ANZ has partnered with Melbourne Hot Sauce to create an ultra-spicy hot sauce.

The sauce, called the “Hot Sauce of Oblivion,” weighs in at around 600,000 scovilles, the unit used to measure the heat contained in spicy food. As off-the-shelf hot sauces go, that’s pretty bloody hot. If you’ve tried Blair’s Ultra Death Sauce, you’re in a similar heat ballpark. The hot sauce is inspired by the Elder Scrolls Online’s own hellish plane of Oblivion. Oblivion is a dimension of fire, brimstone, and demonic influence with a far-reaching hold on the material plane.

What’s in it?

The sauce contains Carolina Reapers, Trinidad Scorpions, and Habenero chilis with notes of mango and cider.

A word of warning: For hot sauce aficionados, 600,000 scovilles represents a zesty, lively stroll to flavourtown. That might not be the case for the everyday Aussie, for we are a weak nation when it comes to spice. Most Aussies are like my mother, convinced that a light dusting of pepper is cause for alarm. We are a nation of people that think mayonnaise is spicy. If you give the average Aussie a dab of Sriracha (1000-2500 scovilles), they act as though their tongue has been seared off at the root.

But you? You’re tougher than that, I know it.

I can take it. Where can I get it?

If you’re feeling brave (and you live in Sydney), you can actually get your hands on the Hot Sauce of Oblivion very soon. Get along to Wings & Tins in Darlinghurst or Dee Why from June 8 and try the Wings of Oblivion and the Elder Scrolls Online Hot Sauce of Oblivion together.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood is out now on Windows PC, Xbox One, PlayStation4, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5.

A version of TESO optimised for next-gen console drops June 8.
