Environment & Lore


Crow's WoodThe Elder Scrols Online (ESO or TESO for short) is a game by Bethesda Softworks, the makers of the long history of Elder Scrolls games (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim). 

When Bethesda set out to create ESO, they wanted to create a game that combined the massive, story-driven, explorable worlds that all of their previous games introduced players to, and combine those into an MMORPG.

The Elder Scrolls Online takes place 1000 years before the Skyrim story, but all of the history found in all of the prior Elder Scrolls games can be found in ESO.

One of the best parts of Elder Scrolls Online is the fact that all of Tamriel will be explorable--something never seen in any of the prior Elder Scrolls games.

The art and environments found in ESO are distinct and immediately recognizable as being a part of The Elder Scrolls legacy.
