How to install add-ons in ESO

It has been known for a while that there will be addons in ESO and that there are already some addons here and there is not necessarily new. But the most urgent question is usually:

How do I install an add-on when I have downloaded one?

It's pretty simple:

  1. Make sure ESO is closed.
  2. Go to the "Documents" folder (by default under C: \ Users \ [Name] \ Documents) and then to the "Elder Scrolls Online" folder
  3. Open the folder "live" or "liveeu" if you play on the EU server.
  4. Once there, look for the “Addons” folder. It is highly likely that it doesn't even exist the first time. If that is the case, simply right-click to create a new folder. You call these "addons".
  5. Now unzip the addon that you have downloaded into the Addons folder and you can go into the game and get started.

In the character selection in the game you can click on "Addons" on the left and manage all addons there. If you are using an outdated add-on, make sure that you have ticked “Allow outdated add-ons” under Add-ons in the top right corner.
