In light of the enormous success of the most recent Elder Scrolls game Skyrim, we are very soon to receive the unfathomable joy and pleasure of Elder Scrolls Online. That’s right, Elder Scrolls is going MMO. But since the release of this game is still some months off, here are some things to inspire you to lead a mob down to Bethesda and demand that they speed things up and take your money.
It is Elder Scrolls!
It has all the graphics detail and character customization you would expect from Elder Scrolls, and adds to that everything you love about MMORPGs. Now you can play Elder Scrolls with your friends around the world. While he folks creating ESO currently say that they are planning on separate US/EU Megaservers, there is nothing stopping anyone from either region jumping on the other’s server for some international mingling and cyber-cultural cross-pollination.
It is a new Elder Scrolls story to be a part of!
I and many other longtime fans of the Elder Scrolls saga greatly enjoy the deep storylines and phenomenal depth of side quest stories to be a part of. This classic characteristic of Elder Scrolls has been thoroughly incorporated into Elder Scrolls Online. Once you create your character, you will be launched into a deep story that you can progress through at your own pace with multiple options to choose from, depending largely on which alliance you choose.
The Alliance War
ESO has a fantastic new PvP system. You and your alliance are fighting against two other alliances for control of the Imperial City, Cyrodiil, and the Ruby Throne within. Playing ESO PvP is your ticket to the newest, largest scale, most in depth PvP system yet devised and created for your participation. Within this system, you and your alliance can vie for control of siege equipment, key areas, and the Ruby Throne itself. This doesn’t only help your alliance, but if you are the highest-scoring member of your alliance, then you also secure for yourself the title of Emperor, and a host of special bonuses to go along with it.
Elder Scrolls Online is the newest way to enjoy the Elder Scrolls universe. Are you ready for it?
