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.
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.

People who know about Skyrim fall into at least one of these 3 categories : those who live and breathe it and manage to slip “DOVAHKIIN!” into every conversation, those who are infuriated by the lag in the PS3 version yet are still mercilessly addicted to it and then there’s the category that I fall into – people who are crying in the corner because they do not have the game (yet).
As a result of my Skyrim-lacking life, me and YouTube have become best buds as it seems we both share a love of super-mega-awesome-incredi-videos that people have made during their time in the latest Elder Scrolls game. I’ve picked 7 of the best for you to have a gander at. Enjoy.
