Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Expansion Announced for May

Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Expansion Announced for May

The next expansion for the Elder Scrolls Online has been revealed by ZeniMax and it’s a good one: We’re heading to the Summerset Isle – ancestral home of the High Elves.

Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Coming Soon

  • New Psijic Order Skill Line
  • Craft your own Jewelry
  • Take on a new Trial
  • New World Bosses, Delves, Public Dungeons, and an all-new group challenge: Abyssal Geysers

Unlike Morrowind (which was featured in Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind), this is the first time since Elder Scrolls: Arena that players have been able to explore the Summerset Isle. And since the region was randomly generated in Arena, that barely counts.  With shining cities, vibrant forests, tropical lagoons, coral caves and mysterious ruins, it’s a brighter setting than Morrowind.

You’ll be able to head to Alinor, Summerset’s capital city and home to the high elf queen Alwinarwe. Another area of note are Cloudrest – the mountaintop home of the Welkynar Gryphon Knights. Or you could head to the Crystal Tower – a mysterious building which serves the dual purpose of a place of research and for honouring the dead.

In terms of the expansion’s plot, you’ll be able to join the secretive Psijic Order and gain new abilities. For example, the power to stop time. There are rumours of Daedric followers organising. It’s up to you to uncover a conspiracy that threatens Tamriel. Check out the dramatic cinematic trailer below.

Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Pre-Purchase Bonuses

If that’s whet your appetite and you’re inclined to purchase it, you may want to do so soon. Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset is currently available for pre-purchase. As an incentive to pre-purchase, they’re offering a new mount – the Nightmare Senche Mount. See below. For a limited time only, they’re also giving away a free copy of the Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind expansion with digital pre-purchase of Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset. So if like me you’re late to the party with that one, it’s a pretty great deal.

Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Nightmare Senche Mount

Here’s the Nightmare Senche Mount, which is available as a bonus for pre-purchasing Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset.

There are also some other pre-purchase bonuses, such as the Court of Bedlam Costume.

Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Court of Bedlam Costume

Here’s the creepy – and cool looking – Court of Bedlam Costume. Is this costume connected to the sinister Daedric followers?

You can also get a Pocket Salamander Pet as a pre-purchase bonus. It’s a nice looking creature.


Here’s the Pocket Salamander Pet – another nice pre-purchase bonus for the Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset.

Elder Scrolls Online is available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you haven’t already tried it yet, you may want to give it a go between March 21 – 27. The base game is available free during that period.
