Microsoft has announced new games coming to its Xbox Game Pass subscription service during its E3 press conference - some of which are playable now.
The Elder Scrolls Online's next big expansion takes place in the Summerset Isle, Bethesda has announced.
The Isle of Summerset, home of the High Elves, was an explorable area in 1994's The Elder Scrolls: Arena, but has only been mentioned in Elder Scrolls games since.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset includes a new zone, a new story, a new skill line based on the Psijiic Order and the introduction of jewelry crafting. It comes out on 5th June for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Bethesda really wants you to play The Elder Scrolls Online.
ZeniMax Online Studios has shared fresh details of the people, places and lethal steampunk contraptions you'll encounter in The Elder Scrolls Online's new Morrowind expansion, due for release both as optional DLC and as an updated edition of the game on 6th June 2017.
The Elder Scrolls Online is doing just about the most exciting thing it can: a Morrowind expansion.
It's due 6th June on all platforms and introduces: a new zone, Vvardenfell, and a 30-hour story; a new player class, the Warden, and his War Bear pet; and a new 4v4v4 PvP arena mode, Battlegrounds.
Vvardenfell is apparently the same size as in The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind - occupies "the same geographic footprint" according to the press release. All the landmarks from TES3: Morrowind should be there, albeit set 700 years earlier.
UPDATE 22nd November 2016: The Elder Scrolls Online is free to play on Xbox One this week.
Update 11/patch 2.5.0 will be released for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited 1st August on PC and Mac, and 16th August on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It'll be around 5.6GB, according to an announcement on the ESO subreddit.
The Elder Scrolls Online had a few announcements during Bethesda's E3 2016 conference last night.
The Dark Brotherhood content for The Elder Scrolls Online will be released 31st May on PC and Mac, and 14th June on PS4 and Xbox One. Or, if you like, you can try it out on the Public Test Server from today.
The Dark Brotherhood assassin quests are beloved in the Elder Scrolls series. They're not about being good, not about saving the world - they're about killing people. Accessing them usually involves a following a shadowy trail.
In ESO the Dark Brotherhood is on the Gold Coast, and joining it unlocks a new and exclusive passive skill tree. There's an overriding story about a mysterious new foe killing Brotherhood agents, and there are also repeatable quests offering rewards.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited's upcoming DLC pack, the Thieves Guild, is due on the public test servers next week and launches on 7th March for PC, 22nd March for Xbox One and 23rd March for PS4.

The big Elder Scrolls Online recruitment drive continues as Bethesda/Zenimax announces a free-play weekend on PC and Xbox One this weekend.

The Elder Scrolls Online's PS4 patch is a colossal 15.9GB.

There's no word yet on what Bethesda will be showing, although we can take a couple of educated guesses.
UPDATE #2 7.20PM GMT: Console gameplay footage was shown during an Elder Scrolls Online livestream this afternoon. I've ripped out the relevant gameplay for a video embedded below (the full Twitch stream is also now available). Please bear in mind it is recorded from the low quality Twitch stream and then blown up and encoded again, so it's not indicative of final game graphic quality. It's produced to give you an idea of the console game in action.

The extra time will be awarded to anyone with an active account registered prior to 8pm EDT today (1am tonight in the UK). You also have to still be on your 30-day free trial period (which should apply to everyone, since the game was released less than 30 days ago).
