Elder Scrolls Online

Elder Scrolls Online has just been announced, to the pretend shock of people who definitely didn’t already know that was happening. It’s being made by Zenimax Online Studios, the studio founded by Bethesda’s parent company to develop massively multiplayer games. There have been a lot of rumours that Elder Scrolls Online was going to be their first game, but this is the first time we’ve heard anything concrete.

This will also be the first time the Elder Scrolls universe has been the setting for anything other than a singleplayer game. We know very little about it so far, though Game Informer have started to trickle out the details. So far they’ve revealed that it’s “set a millennium before the events of Skyrim as the daedric prince Molag Bal tries to pull all of Tamriel into his demonic realm.” The game will also include vast PvP conflicts between three factions, in which players will fight for the Emperor’s throne, as well as “solo questing” and “public dungeons”.

Most exciting: the first teaser trailer is due to hit tomorrow morning. Read on for a bit more mad speculation.

That still leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Will there be long queues to enter instanced oblivion gates? Will there be a crafting system that relies on every player stuffing hundreds of lettuces and calipers in their pockets? There’s bound to be more information in the coming weeks as everyone prepares for E3. And for now, we can stare at the image we made above and let our imaginations run wild.

If you’re one of the many who aren’t yet done venturing through Skyrim though, try out our best Skyrim mods story.

Are you excited at the chance to play a Skyrim-style game with your friends, or would you rather venture through Bethesda’s worlds on your own?

Total win!

Will be interesting how they make the shift from one of the best single player games of all time to a full blown MMO.

I hope they get it right, and I think they will given how many MMOs they can look at to steal/copy/improve on. The only thing I am worried about is bugs. Bethesda is known for their buggy games and their slow reaction time on fixing them. I would imagine they would have to tone down the graphics to make it a mainstream MMO, or at least put the settings in for that. As far as content and world design, they already have a lot to go off of. Unlike SWTOR that pretty much had to start from scratch. We’ll see.

Twonkhammer Entertainment podcast: The Ban Hammer just did a great episode about this... Sounds like it has great potential.

I am so much of an Elder Scrolls fan that even if this game blows I will still be playing it a lot.

Happiness is when you play a game so well that people call you a hacker.

There are two types of people in the world, those who can extrapolate from incomplete information.
