It all begins in March with a new adventure and quests in the Scribes of Fate DLC, and it continues in June with the Necrom Chapter, which will bring the new Arcanist class to ESO.

Bethesda went into full details on the upcoming ESO: Shadow Over Morrowind content during the Xbox & Bethesda January 25 Developer Direct.

It will take players on a grand adventure through places in the series that haven’t been seen in decades of games.
