It’s nearly time for E3 and many of the big companies will be holding press events ahead of the show. On Sunday, June 9th at 5:30 pm Pacific / 8:30 pm Eastern, Bethesda will be on hand for its E3 Showcase. PC players who tune in to watch via a linked Twitch account will take home a Clouded Senche-Leopard mount and five Ouroboros Crown Crates as thanks for their attendance.
Tamriel has expanded yet again, this time bringing the home of the Khajiit to Elder Scrolls Online players. Elsweyr is now available for all players on PC, Mac, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as an upgrade for existing players ($40) or as a standalone purchase for new players ($60) that also includes the base game, Summerset and Morrowind).
Ready to head to the lands of the Khajiit in Elder Scrolls Online and to see dragons make their return to Tamriel? If so, today’s early access of Elsweyr is right up your alley. Both PC and Mac players who preordered the content expansion can get started today. Elsweyr will land in full retail launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC/Mac on June 4th.
Dragons in Elder Scrolls Online’s upcoming Elsweyr expansion are a fiery lot and the latest site blog takes a look at their design. Up to their release in Elsweyr, dragons in Tamriel were the stuff of legends and considered extremely rare in the Second Era. The blog details the creation of these new creatures that “represent an unusual challenge, not least because they already played such a massive part in the Elder Scrolls series”.
If you were hoping to get a head start on your Elsweyr adventures by playing the pen-and-paper version of the Elder Scrolls game, you may have to wait a bit longer. Dungeons & Dragons writer Paige Leitman has launched a charge of plagiarism against the company. Leitman compares an original 2016 D&D adventure of hers called “The Black Road” with Bethesda’s Elsweyr tabletop game and the evidence is pretty convincing.

In a new blog post on the Elder Scrolls Online site, developers provide readers with a look at necromancy, the new class coming with the Elsweyr expansion this summer. The blog begins with a bit of backstory from Leamon Tuttle, ESO’s new Loremaster. According to Tuttle, necromancy “has existed in Tamriel for a long time before the events of ESO, but despite its long history, the practice of necromancy is, broadly speaking, forbidden”.
The Elder Scrolls Online team has posted a new article that introduces players to Elsweyr, the homeland of the Khajiit. The article goes into details about the design of the environments and where they found their inspiration. “There’s always a logic to the way things are in Tamriel, grounding in reality.” the post reads.
