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.

I hope this is only an early developement shot, and that the graphics will look improved in the final version, that looked like crap kinda
This will be great, I can't wait for this!
Plays like WoW you say? Not first person you say? Then it's not an Elder scrolls game.
I must say that I am very excited for this.
So many mixed emotions, so much time to wait and see what this can bring....
That looks exactly like WoW...
i don't really know about this for two reasons. one of them is whether it is subscription based like WoW or free-to-play like LotRO. secondly i just don't really like MMOs i just don't get them. I really hope that I can get a mount really soon becasue there are some locations that I would like to see in the elder scrolls universe though
The visuals here look frighteningly similar to a lot of other MMOs to me. I was hoping for a look closer to Skyrim.
Looks like some generic fantasy game, maybe a not so bright Kingdoms of Amalur.
looks vanilla to me.
The main reason I would get this would be to run around the continents that are not games. So basically every one except Skyrim, Cyrodil, and Morrowind (I havent played the other ones). And the cost would be a factor too. Just have to wait and see more details.
I know I say this in every post about this game, but I really want it badly for xbox.
HA looks lame. I wish the cover story was GTA V instead or Far Cry 3
