For the next chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online, we’ll be heading to the land of the High Elves, scrumpy cider, the Psijic Order, and the Wurzels. The next major expansion for TESO is Somerset Summerset, taking us the beautiful Isle of Summerset, home of the High Elves, for the first time since The Elder Scrolls: Arena all in the way back in 1994. A heck of a lot looks to have changed in the intervening 24 years, and Summerset appears to be quite the looker for adventuring fans.

Summerset is The Elder Scrolls Online’s second major ‘Chapter’ release after last year’s Morrowind, promising to a huge new landmass that’s even bigger than last year’s Vvardenfell update. Summerset Isle is open to foreigners for the first time thanks to a decree from Queen Ayreen. She’s been forced to enlist help after a Daedric threat consumes the land. For some reason, everyone’s been barred from the land since forever, and now they need assistance folks are only too keen to help. Typical Elves, the stupid, pointy-eared fools.

For the first time ever, the Psijic Order will be present and correct in an Elder Scrolls game. They are the proponents of Mysticism and come with a new combat skill line that allows to bend, freeze and rewind time, as well as meditate to recover health, stamina, and magicka.

Crafting fans will be sated with the addition of Jewelry Crafting. Rare jewels and the like can be turned into powerful gear to be worn by characters.

In among the doubtless hundreds of new quests to be found in Summerset, the expansion will also add in some of the toughest challenges ytet, including a 12-player Trial on Cloudrest, new Delves and Bosses, and the ultra-hard PvE zone of the Abyssal Geysers.

ESO: Summerset will be coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 5th. Buying it also grants access to the entire base game and, thanks to the worldwide level scaling system implemented with the One Tamriel update last year, should also make it a decent jumping off point for new players

Any idea what it'll cost ? For someone who doesn't own any version of this game.

Man, this game took over my life for 3 months straight. I sold everything I had and gave them to new players and have been offline for 8 months now. I had to give it a break lol. I want to go back one day since I never played any of the DLCs aside from the DBH and Thieves guild. Love the combat! Which next ES game has something similar, for it is a milestone better than Skyrim's.
