The Elder Scrolls Online is out

ZeniMax Online Studios' The Elder Scrolls Online is now available for PC and Mac and to celebrate this, Bethesda has released a new cinematic trailer of which they have the secret.


Latest Game in Award-Winning Franchise Hits Stores and Digital Retailers Across the Globe

April 4, 2014 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced that The Elder Scrolls Online is now available for PC and Mac at retailers worldwide and on the official online store. Developed by ZeniMax Online Studios, The Elder Scrolls Online is the latest chapter in the award-winning franchise and brings the legendary experience online for the first time.

The Elder Scrolls Online allows gamers to choose their own style of play as they embark upon an epic adventure across all of Tamriel. Players can adventure alone on heroic quests as in previous Elder Scrolls games, explore the huge, rich world with a few friends, or join with hundreds of others in massive Player vs. Player (PvP) battles to save the Empire.

“We are grateful for the overwhelming response to The Elder Scrolls Online,” said Matt Firor, Game Director of The Elder Scrolls Online. “With 5 million people registered for beta, it’s clear that a large number of fans are eager to jump online and experience everything the game has to offer. We couldn’t be more excited to get it into everyone’s hands.”

The Elder Scrolls Online was named Best Role Playing Game at E3 2013 by the Game Critics, a panel of leading North American media outlets, and is considered one of the industry’s most anticipated titles for 2014. The previous chapter in this franchise was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® which was released in November 2011 and enjoyed worldwide critical and commercial success. As the sequel to the 2002 Role-Playing Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind®, and the 2006 Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion®, Skyrim earned hundreds of ‘Game of the Year’ awards and sold over 20 million copies.

In addition to today’s PC and Mac release, The Elder Scrolls Online is in development for the PlayStation®4 system, and Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The Elder Scrolls Online has been rated M for Mature by the ESRB. For more information on The Elder Scrolls Online visit

I second that. Same for the Deus Ex: Human Revolution's CGI Trailer.

I played the beta I don't think I am going to buy this game though. It was good yes, but it felt like multiplayer was tacked on as an after thought. I don't see this being an exceptional MMO, but the elderscroll series is an exceptional series so we will see if this goes free in the next year like so many other MMOs before it..

i think they need to step away from doing cgi clips/trailers like this simply because they lok amazing yet the game when you get it and play it looks not even 1/4 as good so sort of ruins it

I also played the alpha/beta, and I couldn't understand why it was an mmo. It played fine. Had no complaints, but it lacked in any sort of originality to the mmo genre. So, I have to pass.

It's a solid game. Been playing it for a week and i really enjoy it. I love the flexibility of play it offers. I'm a Nightblade caster, and it's awesomely fun. CC is a bit OP atm, but, the game really looks and plays beautifully. There's still some quest bugs here&there, but that will sort itself out.

About the game

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (4 Hours ago)
