High Isle Expansion Gets New Trailer On Xbox And Bethesda Games Showcase

A new trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online’s latest expansion, High Isle, has emerged in the wake of the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase.

This year’s Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase featured some of the most anticipated Xbox and Bethesda games, along with some focus on The Elder Scrolls Online: High Islewhich coming to consoles later this month. This latest expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online brings some surprising new features into play, along with the introduction of a region never seen before in a Elder Scrolls title.

The Elder Scrolls Online Arrived in 2014, a Zenimax MMORPG with a massive open world, fully voiced dialogue, and applying many traditional Elder Scrolls gameplay features to an MMO setting. Players have the freedom to equip weapons and armor regardless of their chosen class, along with the option to join organizations that each have their own skill trees. Over the years, the game has received several major expansions that have added new classes such as Necromancers and organizations such as the Psijic Order. The game even includes previous Elder Scrolls locations such as Morrowind and Cyrodiil.

The latest chapter of the game is high island, which was released a week ago as a $40 USD expansion. High Isle takes players to the Systres Archipelago, home to the magically inclined human Bretons and their famous knights. While many previous expansions of the game have raised the stakes increasingly to apocalyptic levels, players enjoy High Isle’s more grounded storyline, which focuses on worldly political intrigue rather than another existential threat to all existence. The latest trailer seen on the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase teases part of the story, showing a plot to revive the Three Banners War, which has been going on among major factions since the game’s inception. .

high island comes with about 30 hours of story content and side missions, a decent amount for an MMO expansion compared to Star Wars The Old Republic‘s incredibly short expansion earlier this year, albeit slightly shorter than the recent Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker, which took more than 50 hours. The new region also comes with two new companion characters to unlock, which can aid players in battles similar to those of Star Wars The Old Republic. A new collector card game, Tales of Tribute, has been added, allowing players to focus on something new when visiting taverns around Tamriel.

While the high island expansion hasn’t brought anything groundbreaking like a new class or skill tree, the new story content is a welcome addition, and the deck can serve as a means to encourage players to explore the game’s world to work on their collection. Like The Witcher 3‘s Gwent, it gives players a reason to visit locations like taverns and interact with NPCs that they normally wouldn’t. In this way High Isle helps to The Elder Scrolls Online a little more compelling.

The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle is available for PC and will be available for Playstation and Xbox on June 21, 2022.
