The lights are on
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.

Ehhhh.... I love the Elder Scrolls but this might be a pass for me. We'll see how things shake out....
this online idiea is a bad one, i as one who played from arena to skyrim knows that this may be the end of the good old elder scrolls games.
not only that it is online but it is made by other ppl (not the ture makers of the elder scrolls) so who knows how will it end.
im a huge elder scrolls fan and i fear that TES online may leave the real TES singleplayer behind.
this is a bad idea
These pictures leave many things to think about as the MMO develops.This MMO will probably be the best in years, at least I hope so.
Need it no matter what! Nothing will get in my way! Try me, I dare you.
Sounds good but these pics make it look cheesy!
