Elder Scrolls Online

Beta Registrations Open for Elder Scrolls Online

If you haven’t already heard, there’s a storm coming your way. Zenimax Online Studios, the creators of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3, recently released a trailer further promoting the upcoming launch of Elder Scrolls Online. If you’ve been clamoring for another sneak peak at this upcoming MMORPG then you’re in for a real treat. Sword wielding, armor clad Barbarians and High Elf mages striking fear in to the hearts of their adversaries are just a few of the things you can expect from this action-packed cinematic trailer. Tamriel never looked so good. It’s a warm welcomed teaser for any loyal Elder Scrolls fan. Check it out:

Unfortunately we haven’t been given any more glimpses into actual game play, but this Hollywood style trailer should be enough to hold most over for the real thing. If that isn’t enough, Zenimax also opened beta testing registration to the public. But be warned, the process isn’t short and sweet. Tester wannabes  are required to submit a hefty amount of information in order to be considered for a spot. Bethesda and Zenimax haven’t yet announced just when beta testing is scheduled to begin, but if you think you’re worthy you better get on over there and sign up before it’s too late. Different beta stages are planned to feature different content and locations, in an attempt to prime the game for launch and also provide testers with an opportunity to explore a large portion of Tamriel. It’s unclear if progress in the beta will carry over to the final game, but Bethesda has announced that there will be some type of reward for those who participate.

Elder Scrolls Online

With the previous success of the Elder Scrolls franchise, it seems that Bethesda and Zenimax are poised to make an impact in the world of MMORP games, and the extensive development of back story and lore just adds to the potential success that Elder Scrolls Online could have. I mean really, who wouldn’t want to immerse themselves in this breathtaking new world, wage war with enemy factions, and conquer cities?

No pricing model, or release date has been announced for the final game, but if it’s anything like World of Warcraft, or Everquest, we could see a monthly subscription plan.

Does WOW need to worry about Bethesda and Elder Scrolls Online taking away their MMO throne? Are you just as excited as I am about Elder Scrolls Online? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    I’m impressed, but I want to see actual game play. If it even close to the quality of this trailer it will kick WoWs ass.

    I’ve been an ES player since the beginning so I’m interested in how the game will translate into an mmorpg. Should be fun. Let’s just hope it isn’t prohibitively expensive like WoW was.

    Elder Scrolls, with its rich history and exacting attention to the minute details spread throughout the game series as a whole blows anything else on the market completely out of the water. WOW can only hope to achieve the level of beauty displayed by EO. I for one hope the MMO release is as awesome as Skyrim was.

      I’m still playing Skyrim. That game is epic. If the MMO is that good in terms of gameplay and graphics, we’re all in for a treat!
