You heard me right. Only minutes ago, GameInformer brought us the awesome news that there will indeed be an Elder Scrolls MMO – and it might be closer than you think! And hot off the release of Kinect support for Skyrim, timing could not be better.
The June cover for Game Informer broke the news – and this cover story is going to take us all across Tamriel.
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.”
The game is set to come out for PC and Mac in 2013.
Looks like I’m getting a new desktop.
Check out the full cover art for the new GameInformer below and stay tuned because tomorrow, we’ll get our very first teaser trailer.
