The Elder Scrolls Online Description
Return to the world of The Elder Scrolls, in the continent of Tamriel during the Second Era. Set in the distant past before the events of Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls Online lets players take the role of one of the hapless sacrifices to the Daedric prince Molag Bal. Now, they must find a way to recover their soul in the course of their adventures.
The current The Elder Scrolls is actually the 2015 revised version Tamriel Unlimited, which addresses the issues from the original release of the game back in 2014. Originally established as a mandatory subscription model MMORPG with a monthly fee, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited was switched to a single game purchase, with optional subscription and microtransactions for players. The optional subscription adds a 10% increase to character progression and a stipend of 1650 Crowns.
Since Tamriel Unlimited, The Elder Scrolls Online has added DLCs based on major areas and content inspired by other The Elder Scrolls games, such as Morrowind, Summersat (Arena), Elsweyr (Arena), Greymoor (Arena), and Blackwood (Oblivion). There are also smaller DLCs that add new locations, quests, and systems for players to add to their Elder Scrolls experience, such as The Imperial City, Dark Brotherhood, Clockwork City, Dragonhold, Flames of Ambition, Homestead, among others.
