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.

  • 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.

    Pass.

  • The graphics look horrible in comparison to Skyrim. I hope this doesn't mean the fall of The Elder Scrolls series. They should continue making the single player, MMO's are always the same. Level grind to max level, then spend countless hours leveling pointless professions, oh and don't forget scheduled raid times only to end up bickering over gear drops and fail players during the fights. Never again will I play an MMO, and this game is no exception.
  • Aren't dwarven ruins, and decayed dwemer buildings pretty much the same thing?
  • looks kind of whimsical. Not sure why

  • I hope hope HOPE... TESO will at least be unrestricted, both the world, and the combat.

  • Epic WoW clone fail.
  • looks too ...cartoony/clay like for my tastes but thats fine it doesn't intrest me much in the first place... too many mmos around and i perfer my elderscrolls like games to stay single player
  • 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.

  • Man, this game's going to be great. ^_^
  • if not for the headline, i would think its WoW or one of the other new MMOs that came out the last few years

  • How does the game play? That's what I want to know. Does it play like an Elder Scrolls game or like a typical MMO like WOW?
  • Oh I am EXCITED!!!!!!!!!

  • Abomination, absolutely an abomination.

  • Looks like your typical run of the mill MMORPG; so long as Bethesda continue to make singler-player Elder Scroll RPG's I don't mind this existing, but if this replaces that single-player experience then I'll be disappointed to say the least.
  • 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)

  • Pessimism for all! Gamers, the most pessimistic people on the planet.
