As all eyes in Elder Scrolls Online turn to the future expansion heading to the game next month, testing has begun in earnest on Summerset. Version 4.0 of the MMO is now on the test servers, and the team is focusing on the starting area, the jewelry system, and the Psijic Order skill line.

Consider this permission to gorge yourself on information. Not only are the patch notes available for this build, but players have datamined several of the crown store microtransactions that are heading into the game. Once you’re done with that, learn where this expansion came from and check out two of our hands-on experiences playing it.

Finally whether you’re testing it out or not, you can get an early look at Summerset’s new crown store offerings, motifs, and housing options after the break!

Already have a large house with all the basic stations and fully decorated, everything bought with gold or built by me. It cost me lots of grinding hours, there’s no way I’m buying another house, I’d never be there.

I love the look of the the housing in eso just do not like the cost.

ESO’s housing is so unbelievably boring. They just give you a finished house and the only thing you can do is decorate. games like wildstar does this 10 times better.

Wild star is the same they have houses that you buy then decorate. They are both instanced and not fun. Give me SWG housing then we can talk

I didn’t play SWG but I played Archeage and the feeling of having a real land with neighbours is great, but; the competition for the land was too high. I don’t want to worry about losing it because I don’t log in in a while.

You can still play SWG on the emulated servers.

Wildstar lets you do utterly amazing things with their decorations, though. The sheer magnitude of imagination is fantastic.

A Tron-esque skate park? A Christmas wonderland? A mad scientist’s laboratory? A Lovecraftian hellscape? A frigging AT-AT Walker?

It’s pretty great.

Wildstar is NOT the same actually. You can build an entire house from scratch if you choose. The building blocks exist, and you can get very creative using other items, rescaling them, rotating them etc.

Umm actually you can build an entire house in ESO as well, the devs sell blank areas where you can do this. Granted it’s somewhat limited since you have to be creative to do this with limited materials to work with, but it can and has been done.
