Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr Announcement Imminent


The cat (or Khajit) is out of the bag, at least that’s what they’re telling us over at the official The Elder Scrolls Online twitter account, revealing a live stream next week to most likely include the Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr announcement and full reveal, which will be the third large-scale expansion, following Morrowind and Summerset.

In a tweet today, Zenimax Online Studios has confirmed a Twitch live stream will take place on the official Bethesda channel on January 15 at 2:00PM PST which works out to 9:00AM AEST on January 16 for the Australian Eastern seaboard. The season of the dragon approaches, and so do the Khajit and their wares.

Elsweyr is located south of Cyrodiil where Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion took place, and is one of the last unexplored parts of Tamriel left in the game, although the rumoured location of Elder Scrolls VI being Hammerfell is still largely unexplored.

Take a look at the official Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr announcement tweet below:

The live stream may appear to be a bit of a rush job after official details about the Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr expansion were datamined and posted on the official ESO forums. The datamining revealed the new Elsweyr zone, a new Necromancer class, as well as new dragon enemies which falls in line with the “Season of the Dragon” slogan used in the tweet.

Elder Scrolls Online is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms.
