Matt Firor, game director for the Elder Scrolls Online at Zenimax Online Studios appeared onstage to debut the world premiere of the continuing saga of the Season of the Dragon in the hit online game. He noted that the developers recently added more server capacity to support the increasing playerbase, and as part of the recent Elsewyr launch, more dragons!

The new trailer showcases the dragons of Tamriel, a different looking best from its Skyrim counterparts, as well as the new Necromancer class, now available with the Elsewyr expansion. Fans of the series are sure to recognize iconic armors and races in the trailer, including the Khajit, whose home of Elsewyr is now available to explore in the game.

Siege weaponry also made a big debut in the trailer, though how it will work in-game as the Season of the Dragon comes to a conclusion was not clear from the cinematic trailer. Dragonhold features the end of this year's Season saga, and will usher in continued improvements to the title.

As with all MMORPGs that are ongoing, The Elder Scrolls Online and its Elsewyr expansion represent a saga that has no end in sight. Firor also noted that a dungeon-based DLC is due in the future, called Scalebreaker, it will likely feature a host of new dragons and dragon-themed loot and scenery. Scalebreaker “brings two new dungeons for you and your team to conquer: Moongrave Fane and Lair of Maarselok,” according to an update on the Bethesda blog. It also drops the tantalizing hint that "not all want to destroy the legendary beasts."

No word yet on what will follow the Season of the Dragon. Perhaps the Season of the Vvardvark?
