Defend the Legacy of the Bretons with The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle and the Update 34 base-game patch, available now on PC/Mac.

The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle is now live on PC/Mac, Steam, and Stadia*. This new Chapter allows you to explore a never-before-seen part of Tamriel, the island home of the Breton elite, and uncover an ascending threat from within a noble chivalric society. If you’re a console player, don’t worry, ESO: High Isle will be available June 21 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 consoles.

This release also includes the free Update 34 base-game patch, providing all ESO players with a host of fixes, additions, and improvements to the game.


In this new Elder Scrolls Online Chapter, you can continue (or begin) your Legacy of the Bretons adventure by journeying to the faraway Systres Archipelago. As part of the year-long saga, High Isle progresses the story that began with the Ascending Tide DLC in February and will continue throughout the rest of 2022. This Chapter also provides a new zone to explore, new ways to play, and a bounty of unique rewards and Achievements to earn. 

High Isle Zone

A home away from home for the Breton elite, the Systres Archipelago has long enjoyed a kind of neutrality from the ongoing Three Banners War. While High Isle itself is an idyllic paradise frequented by the Breton court and its noble houses, the Chapter also features a second location to explore called Amenos, an inhospitable penal island for political prisoners, criminals, and malcontents.

Explore the regions of High Isle and Amenos

As you journey throughout the Systres, you have an opportunity to venture into each island and discover the true nature of this ancient-but-mysterious land, including both its indisputable wonders and hidden dangers.

An Ascending Threat

In the High Isle Chapter, you dive headfirst into a tale of political intrigue and strife, as the nobles of the Systres find themselves threatened by the mysterious Ascendant Order. This covert organization has infiltrated nearly every level of Breton society and has, behind the scenes, begun to push High Isle towards the brink of disaster.

The Ascendant Order works from the shadows

What you uncover in your investigations within this troubled land will have consequences for both the Bretons of High Isle and the mainland, and while High Isle provides a standalone story experience, the events of this new Chapter will continue and set up the story for the Legacy of the Bretons saga to come.

Tales of Tribute

A new way to play, Tales of Tribute is a unique game system you can enjoy with your fellow players and NPCs in almost any tavern in Tamriel. A deck-building card game that challenges you to gain Prestige points while also garnering the favor of the patrons, Tales of Tribute is a fast-paced, strategic experience that anybody who owns High Isle can pick up and play.

Discover a new game within the game

With its own leaderboards, questline, and rewards (including unique collectibles and Achievements), whether you’re a competitive or casual player, there’s plenty of reasons to play a hand of Tribute.

New Companions

As you venture into the High Isle Chapter, you also have an opportunity to recruit two new Companions to your cause: Ember the Khajiit and Isobel Veloise the Breton Knight. Once enlisted, these very-different allies accompany you on your journeys throughout the Systres and beyond, and they even have their own unique questlines and stories that you can unlock as you adventure with them.

New Challenges & Rewards

As you might expect, High Isle is home to no shortage of dangers, but you can also find ample rewards for your troubles in this new land, too. New world events, called Volcanic Vents, have begun to erupt across both High Isle and Amenos, requiring a team to shut them down before they permanently scar the idyllic isles. The Dreadsail Reef 12-player Trial is a new challenge for large groups that pits your team against the fearsome Dreadsail pirates. Finally, this new zone also features a host of new delves, public dungeons, and world bosses to challenge your skills and teamwork.

Unlock new collectibles, item sets, styles, and more

All these experiences feature their own rewards, including unique item sets, collectibles, and Achievements not found anywhere else in Tamriel.
