While Bethesda Softworks first shared the existence of The Elder Scrolls Online: Gates of Oblivion during the Game Awards 2020, a dedicated reveal event has brought more info. During the reveal, Senior VP of Global Marketing Pete Hines checked in with ZeniMax Online Studios on just what this new year-long adventure is bringing.
Taking place 800 years before The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls Online: Gates of Oblivion tasks players with stopping Mehrunes Dagon. You can check out the official cinematic trailer below:
While Gates of Oblivion is a year-long event, The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood is the largest content drop of the year, with over 30 hours of story content, Oblivion Portal World Events and a new Companions system. It’s set in the Imperial City of Leyawiin and is coming to PC on June 1, 2021, while the console versions arrive on June 8.
More details are coming later this year on the enhancements being worked on for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PS5 owners. Despite Microsoft acquiring ZeniMax Media, all new content for The Elder Scrolls Online is still coming to all platforms moving forward.
