The year-long Legacy of the Bretons storyline ZeniMax has been weaving this year in the Elder Scrolls Online will come to a close in November, as the DLC Firesong releases on PC, Mac, and Stadia on November 1st. Console players will be waiting till November 15th.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Firesong picks up the narrative from the last DLC, Lost Depths, which added two new dungeons to the MMO. This is all part of the larger, year-long narrative being told by ZeniMax, the Legacy of the Bretons, which has seen players dive deeper into the society of High Isle and the Bretons who live there.

Firesong brings with it a new zone to explore, adding to the world of the Systres Archipelago that was added into Tamriel with this year's High Isle chapter expansion. Galen, one of the four islands of the Archipelago, is home to many of the societies of druids that inhabit the islands of the Bretons. Players will help solve the conflict between the Firesong Circle, a cult of druids that is waging war on their fellow druidic circles, as well as help House Monard, who also inhabits the island, from the threat of raids from the Sea Elf Pirate threat.

Since this is meant to tie up the overarching storyline of the year, ESO: Firesong also houses a questline that sees players finally uncover the identity of the Ascendant Lord, as well as dealing with the Ascendant Order within the volcanic island Y'ffelon. 

In addition to the new story content, The Elder Scrolls Online is adding a new patron deck to its tavern game, Tales of Tribute. Players will be able to unlock The Druid King patron deck, which is all about completing card combos for massive reward from the Patron. this new deck requires High Isle's chapter in order to access it, as well as Tales of Tribute. 

The Elder Scrolls Online: Firesong also brings with it Update 36, bringing many QoL improvements, such as the ability to finally hide class pets while in town, use target markers on enemies to help with raid coordination, as well as Simplified Chinese for the text in-game. You can learn more about both The Elder Scrolls Online: Firesong and Update 36 on the ESO website. To see it in action, make sure to catch the archive of today's reveal stream, embedded below.
