Bethesda officially announced The Elder Scrolls Online, a ZeniMax Online developed MMORPG which will allow players to enter Tamriel approximately a millennium before the events of TES: Skyrim.
I fear that it may be difficult to translate the lore and beauty of the Elder Scrolls games to a MMO but I hope I’m pleasantly surprised.
Developed by the team at Zenimax Online Studios, The Elder Scrolls Online merges the unmatched exploration of rich worlds that the franchise is known for with the scale and social aspects of a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. 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.
“It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years,” said game director and MMO veteran Matt Firor, whose previous work includes Mythic’s well-received Dark Age of Camelot. “The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
