Description – The Elder Scrolls Online is the latest chapter of the award-winning franchise – and will bring the legendary experience online for the first time. Whether you play with your friends or adventure alone, the game’s innovative combat system allows you to focus on action and tactics, not the UI. Use any weapon or armor at any time and customize your abilities to play the way you want as you uncover the mysteries of Tamriel and seek heroic quests on your own terms. Explore the far reaches of Skyrim, the mysterious lands of Morrowind, the sprawling metropolis of Daggerfall and beyond. The choices you make, from the alliance you join to the battles you fight, will shape your destiny and the world of Tamriel.

Story – The Elder Scrolls Online is set roughly 1,000 years before the events in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the coming of the Dragonborn, and just before the rise of Tiber Septim, the first Emperor of Tamriel. Three Alliances have emerged across the continent, each struggling for supremacy over the land. As these great powers battle one another for control of the Imperial City – and with it all of Tamriel – darker forces are moving to destroy the world.

Key Features – The Elder Scrolls. Online. After 20 years of best-selling, award-winning fantasy role-playing games, the Elder Scrolls series goes online. Experience this epic adventure on your own or together with your friends, guild mates, and thousands of alliance members. Explore dangerous caves and dungeons, embark upon adventurous quests across Tamriel, and engage in massive player versus player battles, where the victors reap the spoils of war.

The Elder Scrolls Online Skyrim

Play the Way You Like – With an enhanced Elder Scrolls combat system, engage in real-time targeting and strategic attacks and blocks. Use any weapon or wear any armor at any time, no matter what type of character you play and develop your own style with deep character customization and abilities.

A Connected Game World – With ESO’s Megaserver technology you no longer choose a server, but instead play in one connected world. The game automatically places you with friends, guild mates, people you’ve encountered before, and other like-minded players. Simply jump in and begin your adventure.

Your Quest to Save Tamriel – A stolen soul. An undead army rising. A quest to recover that which is uniquely yours. Explore the hidden secrets of Tamriel at your own pace using the game’s compass to guide you to areas of interest. Save the world from the evil machinations of the Daedric Prince Molag Bal and his henchman, the first necromancer, the Prince of Worms, Mannimarco.”

    any news on a new elder scrolls 6

  • GrouchyAlpaca

    This is “kind of” 6. With that said, dont expect an official “elder scrolls 6” for at least 2 or 3 years minimum after a major release like this.

  • dylan ford

    Well I guess I’m going to have to wait three years for the next elder scrolls because I’m not going to get the elder scrolls online because it just doesn’t seem like the elder scrolls I know.

  • ink_knight

    It actually does feel like Elder Scrolls, but its online. I had a lot of fun in the beta lots, just wish the crafting was more like Skyrim- but still it was ok. The characters also aren’t butt ugly like they are in the other games lol

  • I guess the question for you @ink_knight:disqus is; is The Elder Scrolls Online going to be worth a monthly subscription? I understand MMO models, I’ve played many in the past. I understand they come at a cost. I just want to ensure TESO is worth it before I sign up 😉

  • I saw this at Eurogamer Expo in London last year – was a little intrigued by it… not my ‘thing’ because all my RPG hours will be spent on The Witcher 3 !!!

  • This is EXACTLY my thing 😉

  • Thommy Kane

    Its worth it. I beta test the game. It’sone of the most polished games I’ve ever seen. A few bugs, but nothing that wont be patched by launch. Splendid game. It’s more like skyrim online than an MMO. You get immersed. It’s a terrific game. If you like WoW and want an MMORPG replacement that isn’t a disappointed, don’t play TESO. Play Widlstar. Both games are worth the sub for different reasons. Wildstar is the best MMORPG for those looking for a WoW 2.0. TESO is worth the sub for those who like ES games and want one online. That’s the truth in a nutshell.

  • dylan ford

    I tried beta testing it but my pc couldn’t handle it so I just looked at video’s on you tube and the game doesn’t look as smooth as Skyrim its seems stiff like the developers went backwards instead of forward. I’ m still contemplating whether or not to get it for the xbox one, does anyone know when beta testing on the xbox one will start because I did sign up for it but, I still haven’t received an email or anything.

  • dylan ford

    Yeah I plan on getting the witcher do you now when its coming out like a month, I know its this year.

    Fucking hell bro so many facts on this ‘fact sheet’
