Dragonborns grab your reinforced Viking helmets! Jarls drop your gauntlets! Peasants drop your…cabbages? Poor Skyrim references aside, Bethesda are working on Elder Scrolls Online, the massive multiplayer online game of the medieval fantasy world that we’ve come to know and love, this much we already know. What we now are also clued up on, thanks to an info and trailer drop is the Elder Scrolls Online release date, along with how the gameplay is shaping up. Find both after the break.
Sometimes, you just want a change. You want fresh, new, original takes on genres that you love while the publisher wants reskinned sequels like a plucked chicken with a coat on. But we’ve had 7 whole years of that and the time is now to throw the system out the window attached to a giant lead balloon, and Sony’s upcoming PS4, could be the very console to start that revolution.
Should you like your gaming news in tasty, morsel sized scraps, this brand new Elder Scrolls Online trailer will be worth watching. Bethesda’s upcoming massively multiplayer online title, based within their hugely popular universe, will offer your standard quests, exploration and teaming up fare, but given that its the next title in the franchise after the (mostly) rather good Skyrim, the Elder Scrolls Online will have some very big boots to fill.
One way that Bethesda are ensuring that the Elder Scrolls Online is nothing short of the finest MMO that you can shake a ginormous, open world map at is by making character creation the very best that they can, which is important to players given the draw of what will undoubtedly be a hugely popular game. To show off the high quality of their face and body sculpting feature, they’ve released a new trailer, complete with blue hair, rotund stomachs and enough tattoos to make a biker gang jealous and you can watch it after the break.
