The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom Chapter Coming This June With New Arcanist Class
ZeniMax Online Studios has revealed the next chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online, and it’s called Necrom.
Revealed during today’s Xbox Developer Direct, an event showcasing the company’s new game, The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom that takes players east of Morrowind, venue studio head Matt Firor said he wasn’t in in the Elder Scrolls game since 1994.
Players will meet Hermaeus Mora, Prince Daedric last seen in the Dragonborn DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in Necrom. Firor also revealed that Necrom will add an Arcanist class to the MMO, allowing players to cast different types of spells, like destructive, restorative, and defensive spells.
If you pre-purchase the Necrom chapter now, you’ll get the new Sadrith Mora Spore Steed mount and the Sadrith Mora Spore Pony pet today to use in the game, as well as new outfits, pets, and crown boxes , etc. at launcher. This pony is only available until April 18, so act fast if you want to add it to your collection.
“Protect the secrets of Hermaeus Mora and fight to preserve reality with The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom, part of the Shadow Over Morrowind saga,” a description for the chapter reads. “Master the new Arcanist class, explore Morrowind’s Telvanni Peninsula, and walk between worlds as you experience a new adventure that takes you from Tamriel to the mind-boggling realm of Apocrypha.”
Along with the news about this new chapter, Firor revealed that for a limited time, all players will be able to access every chapter and all 20 DLC of The Elder Scrolls Online for free.
The final expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online, Legacy of the Bretons, takes players to the High Isle, a unique (and sunny) location and the biggest starting point of anything done in the previous MMO. The year-long story of Legacy of the Bretons began last June and will likely end this summer, which makes sense when Necrom launches this June. In addition to that 2022 expansion, ZeniMax Online Studios got the news earlier this month after Microsoft chose to voluntarily recognize a coalition in the studio after a majority vote.
The Elder Scrolls Online’s Necrom chapter launches on June 5 on PC and June 20 on Xbox.
