    A great expansion for a pretty good MMORPG. Summerset is a good way to start your adventure inside The Elder Scrolls Online.

    For those who have been playing The Elder Scrolls Online consistently, Summerset is only a natural progression to continue with, but for people who have taken a break and are looking for an excuse to get back in the game or people who have been curious to start, this is a great place to resume or start an adventure.

    Summerset is a wonderful expansion for fans of ESO and people looking to jump in. The expressive new soundtrack and change of scenery are elegant and grandiose, and the detailed landscape provides endless corners and coves to explore. As expected, the lore is incredibly deep and offers an intimate opportunity to get to know the striving, high-brow Elves who inhabit the land.

    The Elder Scrolls: Summerset might try to scratch that The Elder Scrolls itch we are all getting lately. It tells a good story, it offers new contents for new and returning players, it unlocks a new line of interesting spells and abilities.

    It's a great way to get involved in TESO, and even though there's not a lot of new stuff it's still worth giving it a go.

    Summerset in Elder Scrolls Online offers an all new area, but not much is new for long-term players of the game. The aesthetic of the isles has long been available in the core game, and while the additions of jewelry crafting, collectables, the Psijic Order, and the Cloudrest trial are all nice there just isn’t anything that rises to the level of bringing back old dormant players nor introducing new ones. Dedicated players and those who play competitively will need to have this, however.

    Game is mired with constant crashes or screen freezes on PVE and PVP servers on all platforms, PC, XBOX, PS4. ESO refuses to address theGame is mired with constant crashes or screen freezes on PVE and PVP servers on all platforms, PC, XBOX, PS4. ESO refuses to address the issue with a statement to the gaming community about the status of the problem opting instead to pretend it doesn’t exist or like it’s the first they ever heard of it. Suggest you read the ESO forums before buying game because it is not functioning properly and the company disrespects their customers. Zenimax is more intrested in developing crown store to extract more of our $$$ instead of fixing their game. Buyer beware! Expand
