High IsleZeniMax Media

High Isle is the next expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online. Here’s everything we now about our next location in Tamriel.

Unlike their numbered counterparts, The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMO that makes use of the entire continent of Tamriel rather than just a particular province of it. Morrowind, Skyrim, and even the plains of Oblivion have featured in the game at some point. Soon, players will be able to visit High Isle, the next expansion in ZeniMax Media’s successful open-world MMO and part of The Legacy of the Bretons collection of updates.

For those uninitiated in the geography of Tamriel, High Isle is one of the Systres, a set of Islands southwest of Hammerfell. The region is unexplored as far as Elder Scrolls games go. It’s also home to the Bretons, so expect some Game of Thrones style knights and culture. Here’s everything we know about High Isle, the next expansion of the Elder Scrolls Online.
