Battlegrounds are small-scale player-versus-player (PvP) gameplay that launched with the Morrowind chapter of ESO. Each battleground will feature a three-sided team setup with four players in each team, and you will be able to queue up individually or in pre-formed groups. At launch, there will be three battleground maps — a Foyada, a Dwemer ruin and a Daedric ruin — and three game types: Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, and Domination. Battlegrounds will feature leaderboards and have their own unique item set rewards.

Unlike in Cyrodiil, Battlegrounds are not Alliance-based. Instead, players can fight for the Fire Drakes (Orange), Pit Daemons (Green), or Storm Lords (Purple).

Game Modes[edit]

  • Team Deathmatch: Find and kill enemy players to earn points for your team.
  • Capture the Flag: Capture the enemies' relics and return them to your base.
  • Domination: Capture and hold sites across the map, continually earning points based on locations held.
  • Chaosball: Pick up and try to hold a ball which gives points but applies increasingly serious debuffs over time.


  • Ald Carac: A dilapidated ruin of an ancient Dwemer city
  • Arcane University: A ruined outer district of the Imperial City, once Tamriel's center of magical learning
  • Ularra: An old overgrown Daedric worshipping site
  • Foyada Quarry: A quarry set in the shadow of Red Mountain


As you participate in matches, you will earn points and medals based on the game mode. Points are earned for completing the game mode's primary objectives: killing enemies, capturing flags, defending locations, and holding the chaosball. Medals are earned for unique feats related to the game mode, including dealing damage, healing allies, performing kill streaks, capturing or defending flags, healing flag carriers, and taking damage.

Your points and medals contribute to your final rewards, including Alliance Points, Experience, and items, as well as your position on the battleground leaderboards. The top players on the leaderboards will receive additional rewards at the end of the week.
