The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom Chapter Now Available on Consoles
Today, the latest Chapter in The Elder Scrolls Online saga, The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom is now available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 consoles. This new Chapter features more than 30 hours of new content and introduces two new zones to explore, a brand-new class to master, the Arcanist, and a sinister plot to uncover that threatens reality itself.

Telvanni Peninsula and Apocrypha
Home to the devious mages of House Telvanni and the city of Necrom, the Telvanni Peninsula’s towering mushroom forests might feel familiar to those who have ventured to other parts of Morrowind. This new zone contains unique encounters for players to discover, including new side quests, world bosses, delves, public dungeons, and more.
Necrom also allows players to explore Hermaeus Mora’s own realm of Apocrypha. While this mysterious part of Oblivion contains near-limitless knowledge, be warned, many mortals have lost their souls while navigating its endless libraries. Additionally, players will be able to explore an all-new part of Apocrypha – Chroma Incognito. This new area is unlike anything ever seen before, but like the rest of Apocrypha, contains myriad hazards and secrets for players to discover.
Learn more about Necrom’s two explorable zones in this preview.
Necrom brings one of the most requested updates, a new playable class — the Arcanist. As the first new class added to ESO since the Elsweyr Chapter’s Necromancer in 2019, the Arcanist wields the forbidden powers of Apocrypha to deal damage, absorb incoming blows, and heal yourself or your allies.

New Challenges, Companions, and More
The Necrom Chapter also includes a new group challenge, Sanity’s Edge – a 12-player trial along with a new world event, Bastion Nymic. Necrom also brings players two new companions, Sharp-as-Night and Azandar Al-Cybiades. Both Companions can be recruited, levelled up, and equipped in this new Chapter, and each brings their own stories, combat skills, and questlines for you to unlock.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom is part of the Shadow Over Morrowind yearlong adventure and is now live on PC/Mac, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles. Players can purchase the new Chapter through the ESO Store, retailer or platform store of their choice.
