What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Elder Scrolls Online – Elsweyr is the latest upcoming expansion in the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PCs. While the game is set in the world of Tamriel, this installment is set in the Khajit homeland (a beast race of cat people). Players are cast as adventurers exploring the lands, completing quests, and defeating enemies. New to this installment is the necromancer class, which allows players to raise the dead and cast dark magic spells that are powerful, but which come at a cost – this magic is outlawed. if your necromancy is noticed by townsfolk, they’ll immediately call for the guards to kill you. Dragons have also been included in this installment as a significant threat, requiring that players coordinate with other gamers to take down these monsters. Players can expect frequent battles between other players and monsters with hand to hand and ranged weapons, as well as magic spells. Blood and gore will be seen as a result of combat. Language is unmoderated, so players may be exposed to inappropriate comments from other players. While characters can be undressed to their underwear when swapping armor pieces, there’s no nudity. Players can drink alcohol and take drugs, with the screen being affected by the substance imbibed. Finally, players can optionally purchase crowns through the in-game store to unlock special items for characters.
