The latest trailer for Elder Scrolls Online provides more insight into the MMO's story. It explains why the game's three factions are fighting an all-out war against each other.
Cyrodiil, the central province of Tamriel, is ruled by a weak ruling family. However, Cyrodiil still has symbolic importance. Each faction wants to control the province to assert its dominance over the others.
The ruling family of Cyrodiil doesn't want to be controlled, however. They're secret daedra worshippers and have reached out to their ally, the daedric prince Molag Bal, for aid. Molag Bal and his human ally Mannimarco take the opportunity to try and invade all of Tamriel.
The factions have different motivations for going to war. The Daggerfall Covenant believe that the continent needs strong rule in order to ensure peace. The Ebonheart Pact is concerned with stopping Molag Bal. The third faction, the Aldmeri Dominion, is trying to take back control of Tamriel from the humans.
The war will begin when ESO launches later this year.
