Brand-new Elder Scrolls Story

For the first time in The Elder Scrolls Online, a new Daedric Prince walks Tamriel. Forgotten to even her most devout followers, Ithelia has returned. Why has she returned now? And what are her followers' plans for West Weald? Embark on an adventure to preserve reality before the threads of fate unravel in Ithelia’s wake. 

Explore a new zone

Venture into West Weald, an Imperial region last seen in TES IV: Oblivion, now threatened by the encroaching Valenwood jungle and Daedric incursions. Defend the Colovian capital city of Skingrad, investigate the wilds of the Dawnwood, and explore ancient Ayleid ruins and the mountainous Colovian Highlands, all endangered by the chaos of Ithelia’s return.

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."
