In a new charitable initiative The Elder Scrolls Online
developer ZeniMax Online Studios
is partnering with GlobalGiving
, Best Friends Animal Society
(North America), and FOUR PAWS
(pan-European) to raise money to save real-life cats alongside the digital Khajiit kind. With the recent release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr
taking place in the home of the feline
, special in-game events will see the studio donate up to $200,000 USD.
And the premise makes sense, the Dragon Rise event kicking off this weekend and running up to October 14 will task players will taking down dragons. An act that will save the in-game cats - Khajiit - and see Bethesda donate $1 USD for every five dragons taken down split evenly across the aforementioned charities.
With more in-game event as per below coming.

Dawn of the Dragonguard – November 26 through December 9
Hunt down Elsweyr’s most dangerous monsters with your fellow players and you’ll earn new in-game loot. And remember, for every five Dragons slain during the time period, we’ll donate $1 to the #SlayDragonsSaveCats campaign.
New Life Festival – December 19 through January 2
Celebrate the end of another amazing year in Tamriel with the New Life Festival. The merry event returns with a host of fun quests and festive holiday rewards for all, including XP-boosting collectables, unique furnishings, and more.
