Chapters are large expansions for Elder Scrolls Online. Newly-released Chapters cannot be purchased with Crowns and are not included in ESO Plus subscriptions, but are rather available from other online stores (bought separately for those who already have an ESO account, or with the full game) or newly issued retail copies of the game. Sections of older Chapters may become available through ESO Plus and the Crown Store at some point after the initial release. A large zone is always included in each Chapter.

A dread shadow hangs over Morrowind, portending doom even as Red Mountain shudders and quakes. Travel to Vvardenfell and aid the priests of Vivec in this new region full of prophecy, Dark Elf rivalries, and ancient traditions.

Morrowind was the first Chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online. It is an expansion set on the island of Vvardenfell. Morrowind includes a new large zone, the Warden class, the PvP mode Battlegrounds, a Trial, and a new storyline centered around saving Vvardenfell from Baar Dau's descent.

As of Update 18 and the release of Summerset, the Chapter is only available for retail purchase by buying the Standard Edition or ESO Collection bundles, and its contents have been divided between the base game and the Crown Store. Battlegrounds have moved to the base game, the Warden class is available as a Crown Store Upgrade, and the Vvardenfell zone has become a DLC, both available for purchase in the Crown Store and unlocked as part of an ESO Plus membership.

Venture to the land of the Khajiit in The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr, our newest chapter, an epic story in an all-new zone. Face dread creatures from the past—Dragons!—and discover the dark skills of a new character class, the Necromancer, as you join with new friends and old enemies to save Elsweyr from war and devastation.

Elsweyr is the third Chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online. It is an expansion set in Northern Elsweyr. It was initially teased with a wrathstone tablet and letter from Abnur Tharn, and was announced on January 15th, with the tagline "The Season of the Dragon Approaches". Datamined text for the chapter reads "ESO reaches new heights of storytelling with a war against the Dragons that unfolds and builds over four quarterly releases to an unexpected climax." A preview of the teaser trailer was released on January 9th after a stream, showing a Khajiit and Abnur Tharn finding a Wrathstone tablet.



There are currently eight bundles available to purchase:


  • Chapters can be found under the "Stories" tab of Collections, along with Dungeon DLC and Zone DLC. Presently, only Elsweyr is found under "Chapters", and Morrowind and Summerset have been moved to "Zone DLC".
  • When asked about possible areas of Tamriel for future chapters, Matt Firor mentioned that much of Black Marsh, much of Elsweyr, and half of Skyrim had not been done as zones yet.[1] The Elsweyr chapter has since been released, adding roughly half of the province.
