The Elder Scrolls Online, widely known as TESO, is a massive fantasy MMORPG set in the universe of the best-selling, award-winning fantasy RPG series The Elder Scrolls. Experience your new adventures along side your friends, and thousands of other players as your choices no longer just effect your outcome, but of everyone around you. It is a time of strife and unrest. Armies of revenants and dark spirits manifest in every corner of Tamriel. Winters grow colder and crops fail. Mystics are plagued by nightmares and portents of doom. Molag Bal has returned, and he will stop at nothing to claim Tamriel, and all of its people, as his own.
In the midst of this chaos, three alliances vie for control of the Imperial City and the White-Gold Tower. High Rock, Sentinel, and Orsinium stand as one, united under the rule of the High King in Wayrest. Valenwood and Elsweyr have forged an alliance of their own with Summerset, while Black Marsh, Morrowind, and Skyrim have formed a third, uneasy pact. The Daggerfall Covenant. The Aldmeri Dominion. The Ebonheart Pact. Three armies will take up arms against the Empire, and against each other, to wrest control of the Imperial City and White-Gold Tower from the dark forces of Oblivion itself. Where do your loyalties lie?
