ESO World Premiere of 2021 Year Long Adventure Trailer at The Game Awards Announced (Updated)

A juicy teaser appeared on Twitter this week promoting The Elder Scrolls Online World Premiere of next year’s big adventure. It shows a female Bosmer (Wood Elf) sleeping on a book that suddenly begins to glow. Early speculation include the possible introduction of Spellcrafting, the Mysterium Xarxes, or a possible return of Darien Gautier. The trailer did not disappoint as the next day Elder Scrolls Online Players’ social media account were flooded with trailer links. The new year is official known as “The Gates of Oblivion”.

Here is a mobile friendly summary about the upcoming year for the Elder Scrolls Online from the official sources.


Here is the official trailer.

The scene opens on a forested hill overlooking a bending river at night. Next, two sleeping characters appear in the scene: an argonian on the ground and pigtailed wood elf sleeping on what appears to be a ruined fence. The camera then pans and zooms on the wood elf which has a book next to her. The book begins to glow and the view is transported in to a dream-like sequence where in the end a massive daedra prince emerges.
