First Screen And Details On Elders Scrolls Online

One picture may be worth a thousand words, but even that isn’t enough to convey the breadth of ZeniMax’s new MMO.

Yesterday you got a glimpse of Game Informer’s June cover story, Elder Scrolls Online. Today, we give you an exclusive first look at what the game will look like in action.

What’s going on here?
In this image, you can see a couple player characters battling some Storm Atronachs. Storm Atronach are a species of daedra (divine creatures that come from magical dimensions) that are constructed from stone and held together by magic. The most powerful of all the atronachs, Storm Atronach are immune to normal weapons and shock attacks, are resistant to poisons, and can reflect spells back at their caster.

Is that all?
Behind the battle is a series of daedric ruins. These great towers were built long ago by an ancient race of people, but they’re not the only landmarks players will discover throughout their journey. As players travel through Skyrim, Morrowind, Cyrodiil, and the rest of Tamriel they will encounter various dwarven ruins, ancient nordic tombs, decayed dwemer buildings, and many other ancient locales, some of which players may have discovered in previous Elder Scrolls games.

I still want more!
We know you do, but that’s all for today. If you missed it, Elder Scrolls Online’s first teaser trailer released earlier today, and check back next week for more exclusive Elder Scrolls content.

  • Can't wait!
  • NICE !!!!!!! CANT WAIT!

  • Eh... I don't know how I feel about this...
  • well, its no skyrim but it'll have to do
  • I MIGHT ACTUALLY PLAY THIS BUT IDK...
  • Still doesn't look like much. I mean Guild wars 2 looks way better then this even when first in development.
  • The graphics.They don't look all Skyrim-y. And I'm on Xbox, sooooooooooooo...
  • I'm just happy it will be on Mac. The only question is if my Mac will be powerful enough to handle it. We shall see.
  • need to buy gaming PC soon....
  • Sounds cool. Though I do notice that it doesn't look anything like Skyrim. Yes. I know. There are a ton of other locations in the world of The Elder Scrolls. But, I liked the dark vibe from Skyrim. I wish they would've gone that way. In a way, this looks kinda like Fable.
  • I was reading an excerpt from the magazine online about this game and it seems to me like it's going to be WoW in an Elder Scrolls skin. That's what I read made it sound like. I've got to say, once you make like WoW and add in the fact that you can't just go around doing whatever you want makes me not interested in this game in the slightest.
  • That's all folks!

  • I've played far to many MMO's to be excited for this. I've played everything from the days of Ultimate Online with SWTOR being the latest failure in the realm of MMO's. Really not alot of information that makes me think they are even attempting to try and break new ground, which isn't particularly a bad thing. I just don't see anything worth getting all pumped over.
  • I think I might try this just to see Black Marsh.
  • Do want.

  • You are welcome. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=472749
  • I think I'll be sticking with Guild Wars 2 , a Elder Scrolls game not in first person just doesn't feel right.
  • The model of the guy with the sword is awkward and scary...
  • My first question, will it break the mold? First impressions? Nope. :(
  • I'm going to wait until I get the mag and read the cover story to judge this.
