A fan of narrative? Looking forward to immersing yourself? Check out what the story of the world brings to your monitors:
1000 years, before Skyrim and the coming of the Dragonborn, is where you will be experiencing the world of The Elder Scrolls Online. Just before the rise of the first Emporer of Tamriel, Tiber Septim, rises to power. Three alliances from across the world have emerged to struggle for supremacy over the land. As they battle for control, a darker power looms over the horizon, set to darken the plains and bring in a new age of chaos.
Experience this epic adventure on your own or together with your friends, guild mates, and thousands of alliance members, as you 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.
Be able to play the game as you want with an enhanced Elder Scrolls combat system. Engage in real-time targeting and strategic attacks and blocks as you use any weapon or wear any armour at any time, no matter what type of character you play. Develop your own style with deep character customization and abilities to turn yourself into the ultimate fighting force.
Connect yourself with the world on a new level 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. Connecting and playing with your comrades has never been this easy.
Your Quest to Save Tamriel begins. 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.
The game is scheduled for a 2014 release for the Xbox One, PS4, PC and Mac.
