Elder Scrolls Online

Yesterday there was some pretty big stir on the internet about some news of an upcoming MMO based on the world of Skyrim.

Players will discover an entirely new chapter of Elder Scrolls history in this ambitious world, set a millennium before the events of Skyrim as the daedric prince Molag Bal tries to pull all of Tamriel into his demonic realm.”

Sounds awesome right? We won’t make any quick judgements before we see gameplay footage or get to play the game for ourselves, but it does sound like a good idea. Rumor is that it’ll be hot-key based and in third-person as opposed to Skyrim’s first-person (and that rumor is supported by the screenshots). We’ll of course wait to see which of these rumors are true before we decide if that’s a good thing or not. One thing is for sure though, it will be based on the same game engine as Star Wars The Old Republic.

Here are a few screenshots that came from FZ.se

First trailer has been released… a whole lot of nothing, really and of course it’s Bethesda we’re talking about so they’re going to have some EPIC CGI trailers to which gameplay won’t live up to… still they’re entertaining at the least.
