Machiavellian politics ensue as the counties and political juggernauts of Cyrodiil vie against each other to seize the Ruby Throne after the Emperor Titus Mede’s reign collapses. Whether or not they had a hand in his death, players newly arrived in the Heartland of the Empire will be drawn into the power struggle, and face the choice of deciding who they will help to crown the new Emperor of Tamriel.
Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil will enable you to explore the entirety of the province of Cyrodiil, embark upon all-new quests, and interact with the inhabitants of the Imperial Province. Your adventures through Cyrodiil will lead you into perilous dungeons, epic situations, and cause you to face up against entirely new creatures and enemies.
A Broken Land – Explore Cyrodiil as you have never seen it before. Whether you are traversing the snow-covered Jerall Mountains, haggling with the many merchants of the Imperial City, or exploring the lush Gold Coast, you will experience the change of the 200 years since the events of Oblivion. Cyrodiil is a land scarred by the recent Great War and the tribulations of an Empire in decline. Carve out your legend in this shattered land.
Adventure Calls – Cyrodiil is a land filled with adventure. Whether you join the Fighters Guild, the Synod or College of Whispers or the Thieves Guild, expect a tightly-woven narrative with plenty of player choice and consequence. And, as you explore the world, prepare to partake in a bounty of equally interesting side quests. Cyrodiil is a land just waiting for you to conquer its challenges.
The Seat of Sundered Kings – As the Empire is in decline and political conflict ensues, wade into the conflict. Pick a side. Crown an Emperor.
The Knights of the Nine – While the Empire collapses and Tamriel’s denizens bicker, an ancient and deadly evil awakens within the depths of the Ayleid ruin of Ninendava. Will you be able to contain this threat before it undoes Cyrodiil itself? Or will Cyrodiil fall once again to ancient masters?
A Whole Armory of New Gear – Cyrodilic armor, weapons and clothing are vastly different from the Nordic designs of Skyrim. Loot or buy Cyrodilic gear during your adventure. A veritable armory of new gear awaits.
Professional Voice Acting – With voice actors from such titles as Dust: An Elysian Tail, Wasteland 2 and Heroes of Newerth and incredibly careful writing and narrative design, expect to interact with some of the most colorful, diverse and rich characters ever seen in The Elder Scrolls.
The Complete Package – Cyrodiil is brought to life with an entirely new original soundtrack, full voice acting, a whole bestiary of new creatures and a whole library’s worth of original, lore-friendly and tirelessly quality-controlled new in-game books. Explore Cyrodiil. Enrich your world.
