The Elder Scrolls Online will soon belong to the Nords, will focus on Skyrim in future update
In a teaser trailer released at The Game Awards, ZeniMax took the veil off the next chapter in the MMO The Elder Scrolls Online. The next major event in the massive multiplayer title will take place in Skyrim, home of the Nords.
At The Game Awards earlier this week, ZeniMax (the corporation that owns the juggernaut Elder Scrolls series) announced that The Elder Scrolls Online will be heading to Skyrim sometime in the near future.
Players of the MMO were invited to “explore the dark heart of Skyrim” in a cinematic trailer that was revealed at The Game Awards. That teaser is all that ZeniMax is giving gamers for now, though more information will be unveiled in a Twitch livestream scheduled for 2 PM PT/5 PM ET on January 16, 2020.
Astute players will note that parts of Skyrim are currently accessible in The Elder Scrolls Online. However, the teaser suggests that most (if not all) of the next chapter will take place in Skyrim.
