Bethesda Softworks have announced the reveal of the next expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online, Gates of Oblivion, has been delayed due to Inauguration Day.
The new year-long expansion was originally set to be fully revealed January 21st, 2021 on Twitch at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET. However, the game’s official Twitter account and official website have now stated this will be delayed due to the United State’s Inauguration Day.
“Due to Inauguration Day in the United States falling on Jan. 20, we are moving our Global Reveal Event for Gates of Oblivion from Thursday, Jan. 21 to Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 5pm EST/10pm GMT. Thank you for your support and we will see you soon!”
Those who watch the event and link their account for the game to Twitch will earn Twitch Drops and the Viridescent Dragon Frog pet. ZeniMax Online Studio’s Director Matt Firor and Bethesda Softwork’s Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications Pete Hines will present the livestream.
They will also be joined by the game’s Creative Director Rich Lambert, and other developers to discuss what is coming to the expansion. After the presentation there will be an ESO Live Special with Jessica Folsom and Gina Bruno of the game’s Community Team to discuss the reveals further.
