Elder Scrolls Online is one of the most anticipated MMO games right now. A lot of TES fans are waiting for it because Bethesda Softworks has a great reputation and knows how to make interesting games; however, it is not enough to just have a great developer. The secret of any good MMO project is a unique world with its own lore. The ES world is very famous among gamers and that's why ESO has such great potential.
It is not an easy time in Nirn. Maybe it is the end. A lot of revenants and dark spirits appear in every part of Tamriel. Winters become colder. It becomes difficult to find food and survive. The world becomes dark.
Why does this happen?
Four years ago an arcane explosion of energy in the Imperial City changed Tamriel. A lot of Daedra came from oblivion and started to destroy everything. Molag Bal; Daedric Prince of domination and enslavement, started to build his Dark Anchors in order to merge Nirn and Oblivion. You are the hero and you can change the situation. Join one of the three powerful factions and save the world from collapse.
Classes are not strictly connected to races or factions. Each race can chose any class for playing.
Developers: Bethesda and ZeniMax. Bethesda is known as a great game developer with an awesome reputation and tons of experience. They say ZeniMax was developing unknown MMORPG for several years. Now we know that the secret MMORPG is TESO.
Release Date: 2013 for both PC and Mac. A console version will also be available at some later date. Beta testing will take place sometime in the beginning of 2013.
The game was announced on the 3rd of May 2012. We the fans hope to see a lot of great information about TES Online soon.
The game takes place 1000 years before Skyrim (TES V). That means all action will be during the “Second Era” (200 – 300 years before any of the other TES Games).
There will be three factions available in the game. Lion, Dragon, and Eagle (or phoenix) represent the different factions. You can find more information about the factions here - factions.
The market of online projects is developing very fast. We see many MMOs come out every year but these projects are not very exciting. It is very difficult to create a good online game without a good base. Every new MMORPG needs a unique universe and a good fan base. That’s why Elder Scrolls Online has all the right ingredients to become one of the greatest games in industry!
As it was said earlier: the market of online games is growing. More and more people chose online gaming instead of single player games. It is a trend that can’t be ignored. All game developers must use any advantage they might have in the industry to claim a spot in this new era of gaming. It is the right time for Bethesda to start an MMO project. Their last game, Skyrim, is very popular right now. A lot of good Skyrim reviews were written. Bethesda is the current king of the hill in the genre of single player RPGs. They have everything needed to create a great online game. If not now then when? We fans of TES hope that an online version of the world of Nirn can hold up the to the expectations of what an Elder Scrolls adventure has become known for.
The game was reviewed by Elderscrollsonline.info and earned a 10/10 rating.
