ZeniMax Online Studios has revealed the next chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online, and it is called Necrom. The developer showcased the expansion during the Xbox Developer Direct event where they revealed a little bit of what players can expect later this year. ZeniMax claims that players will visit a whole new region in eastern Morrowind in this Necrom expansion. An area which hasn’t been in an Elder Scrolls game since the 1994 release of Morrowind.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom will bring some exciting features with it. First off, there is an entirely new class called the Arcanist. This is the third new class to arrive in the MMO since it was released back in 2014. Using the Arcanist, players can channel different types of magic in combat including destructive, restorative and defensive magic.
