Create your character and decide your destiny in The Elder Scrolls Online!
Vast Character Choices: Players can become one of ten classic races from the Elder Scrolls series including Nords, Redguards, Bretons, Imperials, Dunmer, Altmer, Bosmer, Orsimer, Khajiiti, and Argonians. Further customization includes the choice of one of five distinct classes and the additional choice of becoming a vampire or werewolf.
Factions: The player's race determines what end of the faction war for the Imperial Throne they will be on: the Daggerfall Covenant, Ebonheart Pact, or Aldmeri Dominion. Player's that decide to become an Imperial will have the ability to choose the faction they fight for since they are seen as traitor's to the current Empire.
Large-scale PvP: Conflicts concern more than just simple skirmishes with players of the opposing factions. Players must also collect resources, assist citizens, and capture objectives to truly help their faction take over.
