elder scrolls online elsweyr stone archBethesda Softworks and ZeniMax have officially confirmed via live stream what data miners have been speculating on for months now. The Elder Scrolls Online will be heading to Elsweyr, the home of the Khajiit, for the next chapter in the epic fantasy MMORPG.

“[. . .] in this new adventure, you can fully experience the home of Tamriel’s beloved cat people. In Elsweyr, you can traverse both fertile grasslands and scorching deserts, interact with moon-sugar farmers and wandering nomads, or confront merciless Imperial occupiers and roaming bandits. In this new Chapter, you can truly dive into the life, history, culture, and mythology of the Khajiit and their homeland.”

Dragons will also be making their first appearance in the game when Elsweyr rolls out, along with the highly-awaited Necromancer class. Elsweyr will also introduce a new 12-man dragon-focused Trial called Sunspire, new dungeons, PvP and Cyrodiil updates, and will of course continue the main quest line with a ton side quests thrown into the mix.

Before Elsweyr though, ESO fans will have the Wrathstone DLC to look forward to in February. The upcoming DLC will kick-off the year-long Season of the Dragon. “During the Season of the Dragon, you can experience a year-long interconnected adventure that begins very soon with the Wrathstone DLC game pack and continues through the upcoming Elsweyr Chapter and beyond,” says the devs. “As always, each release will feature an incredible stand-alone story, but the Season of the Dragon brings it all together as part of an epic adventure that runs throughout the entire year – a first for The Elder Scrolls Online!”

Elsweyr is scheduled for release on June 4th but is now available for pre-order. All pre-orders include access to the head start which begins on May 20th. And, to cap things off, here’s the brand new cinematic trailer that we’ve all been dying to see.
