The Elder Scrolls Online is heading for Oblivion

To hell with it.

The Elder Scrolls Online's next big adventure is all about Oblivion.

The Gates of Oblivion was revealed during The Game Awards last night with a teaser video, below.

The video reveals Mehrunes Dagon, the main antagonist of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion. Bethesda called Gates of Oblivion The Elder Scrolls Online's "next big year-long adventure". There's a reveal event set for 21st January 2021 to get a first look at this new storyline.

Oblivion was of course the Bethesda RPG that came out on PC and Xbox 360 in March 2006. It's set within Cyrodiil, and tasks you with taking down a cult called the Mythic Dawn that plans to open portal gates to the demonic realm known as Oblivion. The opening set piece involves escaping a prison alongside Emperor Uriel Septim VII, voiced by Patrick Stewart. Eventually you emerge into this vast, open fantasy world before you. It's a pretty cool sequence.

The Elder Scrolls Online's Gates of Oblivion follows 2020's Dark Heart of Skyrim chapter, which leaned into the eternally popular Skyrim.
