Elder Scrolls Online next expansion is Gates of Oblivion

The Game Awards continues to be the show that keeps on giving, and Elder Scrolls Online is next in line for an exclusive trailer. This time we got to see what the next major expansion is going to be, and it’s called Gates of Oblivion. What could it be referring to?

It’s safe to assume that Gates of Oblivion is going to send us off to the parallel lands of the Daedric plane, and much like we headed underground through Greymoor’s enjoyable campaign, it gives the developers at Zenimax loads of opportunity to craft some exciting new areas, landmarks and cities. Players have already headed off to Cyrodiil, the central setting for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, so this is the next step that makes sense, and will no doubt please long term fans.

Elder Scrolls Online continues to go from strength to strength, and is now available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Stadia. There are plans to have specific versions for the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S which will appear in the future, though for the moment you can enjoy the previous generation’s versions via backwards compatibility.

We really enjoyed the last DLC Greymoor, saying “This is still the Elder Scrolls Online though, and if you’ve enjoyed it in the past, Greymoor is a fun experience that adds a worthwhile chunk of content to it. The well-written quests, the fun combat, and the often-impressive landscapes are unchanged here, and I can see Greymoor drawing in more Skyrim fans to the online world, even if it feels a little like a cover band version of the iconic title. Elder Scrolls Online deserves its position as one of the premier MMORPG experiences, and Greymoor upholds that, even if it doesn’t quite do justice to Skyrim’s vast legacy.”

Gates of Oblivion will launch in 2021.
