Creative director Rich Lambert commented on the difficulties he encountered when crafting a story that focused on unknown aspects of Breton society. “There’s really, there’s not much to the Breton tradition,” Lambert said. “There’s stuff and it’s kind of a hanger, but outside of that it’s never really been explored in depth or in detail. The challenge was to find new stuff that matched the tone and to the general atmosphere and sentiment of the Bretons and their culture.”

The Elder Scrolls Online is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Google Stadia, macOS and PC. The latest expansion pack The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle will launch on June 6 for Stadia, macOS, and PC, followed by a console release on June 21.
