During last year’s Game Awards, we saw a teaser of the year-long adventure that will take place on The Elder Scrolls Online in 2021. It’s called the Gates of Oblivion and it sure looks like the great angry Daedric prince named Mehrunes Dagon is up to no good. A global unveiling event has been announced for January 21st, but today Bethesda and ZeniMax Online announced that “due to inauguration day in the US on January 20th, our global unveiling event for Gates of Oblivion will be postponed from Thursday, January 1st. 21 through Tuesday, January 26 at 5 p.m. EST / 10 p.m. GMT. “
The event will air on Bethesda’s Twitch channel. ESO Creative Director Rich Lambert and other members of the development team will speak about the various new systems, adventures, and worlds that will be part of Gates of Oblivion. Players with linked Bethesda Accounts can receive a free pet dragon frog to turn on.
When asked on Twitter why the event had to be postponed, the official ESO account replied, “Given recent events, we choose security. We have players all over the world, but the majority of our staff live and work in the Close to the capital. “
