Elder Scrolls Online may have been out for some time now, but the title keeps expanding with regular releases of new story content.

A massive multiplayer online RPG, Elder Scrolls Online is developed by ZeniMax Online and published by Bethesda Softworks. The game was initially launched in 2014 on a monthly subscription basis, but was rebranded and re-launched in 2015 with a one-time purchase, a move which resulted in huge success over the years.

The game is regularly supported with new content additions and has now received its first new expansion of the year in the form of the High Isle. The reveal was conducted in the form of a live event on January 27 and has created reasonable hype in the community.

With Elder Scrolls 6 still some time away, the High Isle content expansion provides excellent scope for players to enhance their Elder Scrolls experience.


All details on Elder Scrolls Online High Isle

Titled "Legacy of the Bretons," the High Isle expansion deals with one of the lesser known races of Elder Scrolls Online. Players will be journeying to the Systres Archipelago, which is the location of the High Isle.

The focus on Bretons has a lot to do with player requests, according to Elder Scrolls Online lore master Leamon Tuttle.

There’s plenty of glory, lore, and intrigue to be found in High Isle, from conspiracy among Breton nobility and shining knights of old to the fanatical zealots that would see a world without crowns or thrones. https://t.co/gC9ZX3UXjL

Based on the revelations on Twitter, players can expect brand new story-lines with close to 30 hours of additional content. As usual, there will be blood and gore and players will be able to enjoy numerous quests and missions throughout the year.

There will be several new features players will be able to enjoy under the High Isle story line:

  • Completely new area which players will be able to explore
  • Going back to the roots of game's storyline filled with politics, horror and intrigue
  • A brand new card game that players can play against fellow players or NPCs
  • New companions and world events
  • New dungeons and world bosses
