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.

The game will be MMO Style so it won't be normal skyrim and oblivion type stuffs. Just like Hotkeys and stuff.
Too much Elder Scrolls mania!!!
Oh, so they're combining WoW and Kingdoms of Amalur.
looks kind of whimsical. Not sure why
I hope hope HOPE... TESO will at least be unrestricted, both the world, and the combat.
Yay pictures -_- I dont know how some people get to excited when looking at screen shots. I want to see gameplay, I want to more info on the game. but overall I got a feeling this game would fail
There, not getting it.
Atleast if this bombs we can still look forward to quality Single Player Elder Scrolls titles! Either way, I see rocky mountains daedric ruins, that has to be Vvardenfall.
if not for the headline, i would think its WoW or one of the other new MMOs that came out the last few years
Oh I am EXCITED!!!!!!!!!
Abomination, absolutely an abomination.
is it just me or could have this been a screen shot for any other other mmo and there would be no difference (unless it was wow of course)
