After some dataminers got a hold of some information that lead to the discovery of a possible next expansion of the MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online, Zenimax decide to officially announce a livestream that will take place on January 15th in a post on their website.

Elder Scrolls Online Could Have Just Confirmed Next Expansion

Following the news of a recent datamine that was shared on ElderScrolls.net (in Russian, then shared in English on ResetEra), it revealed that a new expansion could be coming to ESO. Not only does the information share the DLC name which is Elsweyr, but also a new class Necromancer. The reveal included a Necromancer Costume, new mounts and Dragon souvenir. But this is not all, some of the mounts can be seen with Dragonscale armor, strengthening the idea that Dragons may be on the horizon.

Elsweyr is an area that is located in the southern part of Tamriel and is home to the Khajiits. This means we could be getting new storylines covering the furry felines plus a new area to explore.

Following the news of these discoveries, the official Elder Scrolls Online twitter shared a post to the ESO website which outlined the announcement of a livestream coming Tuesday, January 15 at 5:00PM EST on the Bethesda Twitch channel. The post while not revealing the true content of the livestream does give some clues that they may be revealing Elsweyr:

The cat’s out of bag! Ready yourself, adventurer. A massive announcement for The Elder Scrolls Online is on the way! Find out how you can learn about the upcoming ESO Chapter and what’s coming to the game in 2019.

With the pun in mind and a “massive announcement” to be shared, clues point to the reveal of the next expansion.

The tweet also gives more hints with the phrase “The Season of the Dragon Approaches” plus the cat, dragon and skull emojis. Could Dragons be coming to ESO? Do you think they are going to make the reveal or is there a twist ahead? Let us know in comments below.

    I’m SUPER excited! I love Khajiit everything and I am thrilled if we get to return to Elsweyr! A necromancer class sounds like an excellent disruption of the current balance – bring it on! But dragons… new world bosses? This could be very exciting!

    Love it! I think dragons could add a lot of fun to the game. Would like to see some friendly and some enemy dragons, not just enemies though. Interested to see what the necromancer class will play like!
