It seems wild to say but years after the release, ‘The Elder Scrolls Online’ is still going on strong. In an age when so many MMO’s NOT named ‘World of Warcraft’ end up flaming out, Bethesda continues to up the ante with their flagship IP. The Elder Scrolls Online is one of the most popular console MMOs in the world and one of the most played PC MMOs around. Now, Bethesda is setting up a new expansion that should get gamers excited all over again. Bethesda just announced that their next DLC will be titled ‘Summerset’ and it will be focusing on the High Elves of Tamriel.
The Summerset DLC will be a continuation of the 2015 DLC, Orsinium, and it will seek to put an endcap on the story that Orsinium began. Among the new additions to TESO will be a completely new zone, an additional faction (Psijic Order), a new skillset, a jewelry crafting skill, a spate of new bosses and finally a new Trial known as Cloudrest which features 12-player cooperative gameplay.
Not much is known about the new DLC as of yet but we can provide a little bit of detail regarding the new zone, provided by Bethesda. According to Bethesda’s announcement, Summerset is going to be one of the prettiest zones in all of Tamriel — but it will have a dark secret. Bethesda wrote, “Trouble is hiding in the shadows and corruption threatens to destroy High Elf society from within.”
The Summerset DLC will be available for PC gamers on May 21st and it is currently available for pre-purchase if you are feeling so inclined. Pre-purchase benefits include a great physical totem of Prince Mephala, a Deadric character from the game. You will also receive a special pet, treasure maps, a Psijic Vault Crown crate, a Queen’s Bounty Pack and even a special costume for your character to wear. Pre-purchasing the DLC will also give you the Morrowind DLC as well.
