Having explored different eras of the lands of Skyrim, Morrowind and Elsweyr, The Elder Scrolls Online has been showcasing these classic Elder Scrolls locations. But now there is a major expansion in an entirely new location for players to discover for the first time. The Elder Scrolls Online High Isle Chapter is out now on Xbox and PlayStation.
High Isle is an island getaway as perfect as you can imagine for The Elder Scrolls Online. Reminiscent of the Mediterranean – just with medieval castles and tournament grounds – it contains a story that focuses on the political side of Tamriel. All political decisions are made in Gonfalon Bay, where the elite live. Likely in their ivory towers.
The High Isle Chapter also brings with it a couple of new companions. A mechanic introduced to Elder Scrolls Online last year, there are two new companions to choose from. Ember, a Kahjiit from the streets and Isobel, a Breton who aspires to be a knight.
Also coming in the High Isle Chapter is a new card game called Tales of Tribute. Featuring PvP, PvE and a storyline against players all over the world, this could be as big a time sink as Gwent from The Witcher 3.
Bear with me here, but there are several different options for purchasing the High Isle Chapter. There is the High Isle Upgrade priced at £32.99 on the Xbox Store. This is the basic version but does also come with the Palefrost Elk Mount and some pre-order content including double experience scrolls, treasure maps, costumes, crates and puppy! Then there is the Collector’s Edition Upgrade for £44.99 that comes with all the previous stuff plus an additional pet, mount, outfit style, memento and emotes.
Those are if you already have the base game. For those that have yet to pick-up the base game, you haven’t been forgotten either. Firstly, there is The Elder Scrolls Online Collection: High Isle priced at £59.99. This includes the base game, High Isle Upgrade – and associated bonuses – plus the Blackwood, Greymoor, Elsweyr, Summerset and Morrowind expansions. Finally, there is The Elder Scrolls Online Collection: High Isle Collectors Edition that basically includes all the previous stuff, plus all associated Collector’s Edition bonuses for all previous expansion. That is priced at £79.99 on the Xbox Store. Don’t forget though that The Elder Scrolls Online is also available through Xbox Game Pass.
I hope I didn’t miss any purchasing options out there, but there will be one to suit any budget, I am sure. Our review is coming soon as well, but let us know in the comments below if you will be picking this new expansion up.
