Three alliances clash in a struggle to claim Cyrodiil, the heartland of Tamriel, and the chaos of war spreads to every province. Unlikely allies stand together on the battlefield, but a more sinister threat stirs beneath the surface—the Daedric Prince Molag Bal, God of Schemes, is hatching a plan to pull all of Tamriel into his Oblivion realm and enslave every mortal soul. It is in the face of overwhelming odds that champions are forged...
Explore Tamriel: From the icy reaches of Skyrim to the depths of Black Marsh, Tamriel is the perfect home for any explorer. You'll discover dungeons and ruins for solo and group expeditions, quests for the Fighters, Mages, and Undaunted Guilds, dangerous world bosses, hidden Skyshards to collect for skill points, beautiful vistas to admire, tons of in-depth lore books, and more. Indulge your curiosity and see what's waiting for you just over that next rise.
Your Character, Your Strategy: You are more than your class. Pick up and use any weapon, any armor, and choose from an enormous selection of spells and abilities to customize your fighting style—no matter which class you select. Create exactly the hero you envision, try out new abilities, and change out your skills anywhere to adapt to new threats. You’re in control of your character’s fate.
Swear Allegiance: Forced to seek allies in the face of war and Daedric invasion, the people of Tamriel have come together under three banners. Each alliance seeks to claim the Ruby Throne in Cyrodiil, drive back the forces of the Daedra, and restore their own ideal of order to the land. But the bonds between them are tenuous at best—ancient enemies must put differences aside for the greater good. Who will you stand with?
Prepare for War: The Alliance War rages across Cyrodiil as each army vies to conquer the Imperial City. Huge fortifications are under siege day and night as battles for control play out all over the province. Join in the fight and represent your alliance, using powerful siege weapons and tactical prowess to defeat players from the enemy alliances and claim glory for yourself! Will you be crowned as Emperor?
Craft, Trade, and More: The in-depth crafting system allows you to become a master clothier, woodworker, blacksmith, alchemist, enchanter, and provisioner, creating everything from powerful weapons and armor to delicious stat-boosting meals. Guild stores and kiosks promote trade throughout the cities for the enterprising merchant, and there's always work for an adventurer.
An Immersive World: The citizens of Tamriel all have their own possessions and treasures, and they can be yours. Steal, murder, and get away with it—if you’re stealthy enough. There are those who would take offense at your actions, though, so be prepared to face the consequences if you’re discovered. The far-reaching Justice System punishes those who ignore the law.
