The Elder Scrolls Online: Lore

Three factions vie for control of Tamriel as the corrupt Tharn dynasty struggles to maintain power in the imperial city of Cyrodiil.


In the upcoming MMORPG Elder Scrolls Online the player will be able to traverse the entire map of Tamriel for the first time in the series history.

Unlike current installments, the empire is divided and the continent is ruled by three factions, each of whom is vying for control of the imperial capital, Cyrodiil. Whether as the Aldmeri Dominion, Ebonheart Pact, or the Daggerfall Covenant, the player will encounter three different faction styles in terms of goals, story, and means of achieving their objectives.

Each faction wants to take control of the seat of the empire and impose their vision of order on the continent. Watch the video above to hear more from Elder Scrolls Online Loremaster Lawrence Schick.
