      Why you should play The Elder Scrolls Online

      "The Elder Scrolls Online is more than just an RPG - it's a celebration of a beloved and ever-expanding game world that traces it roots all the way back to 1994's The Elder Scrolls: Arena.

      Gathering together almost two decades of fantasy world-building spread across various award-winning Elder Scrolls titles including Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls Online not only revisits but expands upon Bethesda's rich universe with hundreds of new stories, intriguing characters and historic events, whilst offering never-before-seen glimpses into new regions of Tamriel.

      Whether you're a long-time fan or a complete newcomer, The Elder Scrolls Online is an incredible adventure through one of gaming's most well-realised universes."
