Elder Scrolls MMO Confirmed
The title is not wrong, this is not a prank and we’re way past April Fools Day. A report from Game Informer confirmed the development and planned release for The Elder Scrolls Online, the first MMO adaption of the hugely popular Elder Scrolls franchise. Bethesda have released over 15 different Elder Scrolls related titles and have sold well over 30 million units worldwide.
If somehow you’ve been living under a rock, or maybe you’ve just migrated from the planet Vulcan, and you’re not aware of what the Elder Scrolls franchise is like, I’ll sum it up for you. Simply put, they are the most expansive free roam RPG games ever released this side of the Atari, it’s that simple. Love or loathe the games, you cannot help but admire the massive amount of effort and dedication that goes into each Elder Scrolls title.
The latest Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim, sold over 10 million copies and is already being considered for a GOTY (Game of the Year) addition. It has taken Bethesda nearly 20 years to finally bring fans what we’ve been craving for since that darn Mudcrab hinted at multiplayer in Morrowind, a truly multiplayer experience centered around one of the greatest RPG franchises of all time. Very few details about the actual game were mentioned but they did say the game would take place a millennium before the events of the recently released Skyrim.
Bethesda has not given an exact release date but they did say we could expect The Elder Scrolls Online in America, Europe and Japan, as early as next year. Guild Wars 2 what? TERA Online who? Sorry guys, but I think Bethesda are going to be hogging the limelight for the next 12 months.
I don’t know about you, but the minute they release a statement saying The Elder Scrolls Online will feature every province within Tamriel, they’ve got my pre-order.
