The world of Tamriel continues to get bigger and more dangerous with the announcement of The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr and the Season of the Dragon year-long storyline. The third major Chapter release since ESO first launched almost five years ago, Elsweyr takes you into the warm climes of the home of Tamriel’s beloved cat people. This new adventure thrusts you into a deadly conflict between the local Khajiit, brutal Imperial mercenaries, and, flying above them all, merciless Dragons.
Elsweyr features an epic story of its own, but it is also part of a massive, continuous adventure called the Season of the Dragon. This year-long story begins with the upcoming Wrathstone DLC dungeon pack, continues with the Elsweyr Chapter, and then runs through the rest of the year with additional, yet-to-be announced dungeon and zone DLC game packs. While ESO has tied narratives together between different Chapter and DLC releases before, this is the first time the game has weaved together one continuous story from start to finish across an entire year.
Of course, The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr is a full Chapter release in its own right, and in addition to an incredible new story, the home of the Khajiit is fleshed out with unique stand-alone quests to complete, beautiful sights to experience, and mysterious and dangerous challenges for you to overcome. This includes thrilling new group events called Dragon Attacks, and a new full 12-player Trial called Sunspire. From its deep canyons and scorching deserts, to its fertile grasslands and shining palaces, in this new Chapter you can truly discover the life, culture, and history of this ancient and rarely seen realm.
Finally, Elsweyr also brings a powerful new Class for you to master, the Necromancer. With the Necromancer, the forbidden arts, practiced only in secret in Tamriel’s dark places, are yours to command at will. With this new power, you can raise relentless undead, encase yourself in impenetrable bone, and draw from death itself in order to prolong life. With this new Class and its three unique Skill Lines, death itself is a weapon.
That’s just a taste of what is coming to the game in 2019. Since The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind first launched on consoles in 2002, Tamriel has always had a home on Xbox, and we can’t wait to share more of what is coming to ESO in its fifth year, including Elsweyr, the year-long story, and beyond.
You can pre-purchase Elsweyr to immediately receive the otherworldly Rahd-m’Athra mount and a collection of bonus in-game items at launch. In addition to this, pre-purchases of The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr (Standard) or the Collector’s Edition digitally (note: full game, not Upgrades) will also receive immediate access to the ESO base game, Morrowind Chapter, AND Summerset Chapter, allowing you to begin your adventures in Tamriel today!
