The Elder Scrolls Online Summerset Expansion Launches Today

Bethesda Softworks and ZeniMax Online Studios are in party mode, as The Elder Scrolls Online Summerset Expansion launches today, marking the second major expansion for the free-to-play MMORPG, after Morrowind launched around the same time last year. Rocket Chainsaw reviewed The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind expansion, giving it 4.5 stars and saying “Morrowind has turned The Elder Scrolls Online into the MMORPG that it deserves to be, and we are very excited to see what ZeniMax Online Studios does next with the game.”

This new expansion takes you to Summerset Isle, a beatiful location with wild creatures and a new Psijic Order quest and skill line to discover. Only you can find the path that will lead us from darkness. The ancient homeland of the high elves will have you working together to unravel a conspiracy that threatens the whole of Tamriel.

The Summerset expansion launches today, May 21, 2018 for Windows PC and Mac players while Xbox One and PlayStation 4 fans will have to wait until June 5, 2018 to begin their journey on the isle. There is now a wealth of content in The Elder Scrolls Online and the base game is quite cheap to pick up. For fans of Elder Scrolls games that haven’t tried it yet, the free-to-play MMORPG is still churning along and continues to grow its community.

Announcing The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, the next Chapter in The Elder Scrolls Online saga. For the first time in history, the long-closed borders of Summerset are open to foreigners by decree of Queen Ayrenn. But darkness looms over the ancestral home of the High Elves, and whispers stir of Daedric followers organizing in the shadows. Rally your allies, brave champions. Summerset awaits.

Pre-purchase The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset now to immediately receive the Nightmare Senche Mount and a bonus copy of the Morrowind Chapter, plus get the Queen’s Bounty Pack and its unique digital rewards, including the Court of Bedlam costume, Pocket Salamander pet, and more, once Summerset launches. The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 5, 2018, with PC/Mac early access starting on May 21.

There is still time to squeeze in a pre-order and get the pre-order exclusives mentioned above, but Windows PC and Mac fans should hurry, with early access beginning later today. Historically, when The Elder Scrolls Online goes down for maintenance and/or a large patch, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact time it will be available, with some fans suggesting to wait until the 22nd to begin your journey in Summerset Isle.
