The latest expansion for ZeniMax Online Studios’ The Elder Scrolls Online is on the way, and it will take players back to the Summerset Isles for the first time since the first game in the series, The Elder Scrolls: Arena.
To announce The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset two trailers have been released. The first is a cinematic teaser trailer, while the second is a gameplay announce trailer. You can check both of these out below along with lots of information on the new expansion, and even a way for those who have never played to try it out for free right now.
By the decree of Queen Ayrenn, Summerset Isle is now open to foreigners, but a Daedric threat looms over the breathtaking home of the High Elves. Travel to the Summerset Isle, reunite with old friends, and unravel a shadowy conspiracy that threatens all of Tamriel.
