Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) is the latest installment in the world-renowned Elder Scrolls series of games. It finally brings online multiplayer gameplay to the familiar open-world RPGs we all love. Chronologically the earliest in the series, ESO is set in the second era as opposed to the third era that forms the premise for the first four main Elder Scroll games.
Its events occur about a thousand years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and 800 years before those of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
Set in the continent of Tamriel during the Interregnum period, the game is essentially about several factions - all vying for power to win the “Alliance War”. But what would an epic fantasy RPG be without a super bad villain? Prince Molag Bal, the Daedric Prince is back to dominate and enslave mortals. Consuming souls of innocent mortals, he’s ready to wreak havoc in the human world.
Like most Elder Scrolls games, ESO begins with the player character held captive. Explore the picturesque Tamriel - from sun-blessed savannahs and canyons to deserts of Hammerfell. And get your soul back from Molag Bal - the Corrupter.

ESO was released for Windows and Mac in 2014 and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles in 2015.
Like the other games in the franchise, ESO has non-linear, free-form gameplay. You have enormous freedom to roam around the vast and expansive continent of Tamriel and do lots of things. There are ten different races you can choose from. And six different classes with their own set of abilities (attacks, spells and more):
You can also choose to become werewolves or vampires in this grand MMORPG. And travel the continent on foot or mount (horses, wolves, guar and more).
The open-world environment lets you go on various side quests like locating or herding a guar - a domesticated pack animal in the fictitious ESO world. Or solve other local mysteries. It offers limitless possibilities for exploration.
Make death your weapon in the latest ESO expansion! With the all-new Necromancer class, you can make the undead do your bidding. Use them to empower your attacks!
