ESO Gates of Oblivion trailers
The one-minute trailer revealed at the Game Awards in December 2020. The trailer shows a wood elf having a fiery nightmare, with a book looking to be the source of these visions. It’s laying pretty heavy on the hell theme, and that can only mean one thing in Tamriel: diving into the Oblivion.
At the Global Reveal event hosted on January 26, 2021, Bethesda Softworks got an extended look through a three-minute cinematic trailer that further sets the mood and tone of the expansion, continuing the theme of hell and despair, complete with growling grizzlies and robed cultists. Featuring an epic battle between Wood Elves, Argonians, and Dunmers against the cultists before venturing into the Oblivion realm, players are surely set for a treat.
