Bethesda announced a new expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online last night that takes players to the Khajiiti homeland of Elsweyr.
The announcement for the expansion was made during a livestream and came with a shiny new cinematic trailer packed to the brim with excitement, action, and dragons. It also marks the first time players will have full access to Elsweyr since The Elder Scrolls: Arena back in 1994.
Dragons have returned to Tamriel. Will you help to defend the Khajiiti homeland from these winged terrors?
