    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."

    A brand-new Elder Scrolls adventure

    Traverse from Eastern Morrowind to Apocrypha and unlock the power of a brand-new class - the Arcanist

    • New playable class: Become empowered by forbidden knowledge and the secrets of Apocrypha. The Arcanist is a powerful new Class capable of destructive, restorative, or defensive magic by channelling the arcane, ancient runes and lost tomes of power.
    • All-new zones: Explore the Telvanni Peninsula, home of colossal mushrooms, arcane magic, rocky spires and the capital city of Necrom. Additionally, behold the forbidden books of the endless library of Apocrypha.
    • A cosmic story: The Prince of Fate holds secrets too dangerous for mortals or Daedra to comprehend. Now hidden yet turbulent powers threaten Hermaeus Mora's realm of Apocrypha and if the Daedric Prince's secret is uncovered, it could unravel all of reality.
    • New Warden and Arcanist Class Companions: Two new allies seek grand quests and glory! Unlock the Arcanist-power-wielding Redguard and Argonian Warden Companions to battle by your side and keep you company on your journey across Tamriel.
