BETHESDA SOFTWORKS ANNOUNCES
THE ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE
ZeniMax Online Studios Takes Award-Winning Elder Scrolls Franchise Online In Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game
May 3, 2012 (London, UK) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced The Elder Scrolls® Online, an MMO in development at ZeniMax Online Studios. The Elder Scrolls Online will be the first Elder Scrolls game to allow gamers to explore the legendary Elder Scrolls world with others.
The Elder Scrolls Online is being developed for PC and Mac under the leadership of industry veteran Matt Firor, who has spent the last two decades working in online game development. Details about the game are revealed in an exclusive cover story in Game Informer®’s June issue, which ships to subscribers and newsstands this month.
“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted,” said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. “It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® is the most recent title set in the award-winning Elder Scrolls universe. Skyrim, developed by Bethesda Game Studios, was released in November 2011 and enjoyed worldwide critical and commercial success. Skyrim earned hundreds of ‘Game of the Year’ awards, including top honors at the 2012 Game Developers Choice Awards, the 15th Annual 2012 Interactive Achievement Awards held at the 2012 D.I.C.E. Summit, and at the 2011 Video Game Awards. Internationally, Skyrim shipped over 10 million units within the first month of its release, was the second highest grossing title in the industry last year, and is the fastest selling title in Steam’s history.
The Elder Scrolls Online will be featured on magazine covers across Europe and in online stories in the coming months which will provide gamers with more information about this exciting title.
Upon release, The Elder Scrolls Online will be available in English, German and French languages.
I'm so glad Game of Thrones isn't taking the this Sunday's episode off, just because it's memorial Day weekend. I always felt that was stupid. (12 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: ??? unless it costs more where you're at. My pre ordered Playstation VR bundle costs $499. (15 minutes ago)

apart in price at least. $250 vs $399. for the PS4, it will be $299 for PS4 vs $399 for the PS4 Neo or $499 with VR thrown in (26 minutes ago)
The current XO stock that is left will be reduced in price well below the Slim's price to clear it. After that, it's up to the consumer and what they want. XO Slim or XO Scorpio which will be $150 ... (27 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: It's not throwing it under the box at all. It depends how many manufactured XOs they have left. The Slim apparently has 2TB hard drive which is a big selling point IMO. (29 minutes ago)
@scoobs0688: you are so going to eat crow. haha (3 Hours ago)
