We are currently investigating issues some players are having logging into the North American and European PC/Mac megaservers. We will update as new information becomes available.

PTS Patch Notes v8.0.4

Community Manager
The Elder Scrolls Online v8.0.4 is our final incremental patch before High Isle launches on PC/Mac/Stadia on June 6! Similar to previous patches, we’ve continued fixing issues affecting the new Trial, Tales of Tribute and content in High Isle. We’ve also made some small updates to the EULA which you will need to re-accept upon first logging in after this patch.

Please note in order to test proper access to the upcoming Chapter, only those who have pre-purchased High Isle will be able to access the content starting with this patch. Should you decide to pre-purchase after this patch goes live, you will immediately regain access to all Chapter content as intended.

The size of this final patch is approximately 559MB. A huge thank you to everyone for all your feedback and bug reports from the past month – we appreciate you!
