Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Expansion – New Gameplay Trailer

Explore the home of the high elves in this sizeable expansion to Elder Scrolls Online, which takes players to Summerset.

The Elder Scrolls Online‘s next major expansion will take players to the home of the Altmer, Summerset Isles. Summerset will release on June 5 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

You can watch the debut trailer here:

And here’s a brand new gameplay trailer:

The expansion begins with Queen Ayrenn declaring that Summerset Isle is open for travel to all foreigners. From there, players will be able to enjoy a sizeable new area – it’s even larger than the one added by ESO: Morrowind – that is described as being “uniquely beautiful.” While Elder Scrolls fans have seen this world before in 1994’s Elder Scrolls: Arena, we have no doubt that Elder Scrolls Online will do greater justice to its reported beauty.

The expansion’s plot will deal with an impending Daedric attack that might have something to do with the Queen’s decision to open up the isles once more. The story is described as a continuation of the plot that began in the 2015 DLC for Elder Scrolls Online, Orsinium

The biggest addition this expansion brings, though, is the presence of the Psijic Order. The Psijic Order, an ancient order of mages from which the Mage’s Guild was formed, have been mentioned during previous Elder Scrolls games, but players have never been invited to join the mysterious order of magic masters. Now, you’ll not only have the chance to join the order, but you’ll be able to learn an entirely new line of skills tied to the order of the knowledge. You’ll also get a close look at their mysterious home of Artaeum.

Additional new features introduced by Summerset include the ability to craft jewelry and associated powerful gear, a new set of PvE challenges, a new 12-player Trial, new Delves and Bosses, some unspecified new creatures. Those who have already been playing ESO will be able to upgrade their game to Summerset and either take their existing character to the new world or just start there with a fresh build. If you’re new to the game, then you’ll have the option to build a new character and jump right into Summerset if you wish to do so. 

If you are new to the game, you might want to tack advantage of the free ESO trial that will run from today until March 27th. If you decide to purchase the expansion, you’ll have the option to pre-order several different versions and receive a few different bonuses.
