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.

Graphics seem a bit cartoonish.....It would be better if the used the Skyrim graphics engine
The faces of the players look so...wrong...
great....another mmo that looks like a cartoon...
iam working on building a gaming pc just for this game
this will fail so baaadddd
I might cry in joy.
If it's Free, I'll play it. If it's Pay i won't touch it. If there is a trial, I'll try it... But only for Morrowind.
Is the look of this game off-putting to anyone? Graphics look garish and overdone, which is a far cry from the subtle organic-ness that makes skyrim and morrowind so beautiful.
Looks like Oblivion graphics...
This doesn't LOOK like an Elder Scrolls game. It looks like another cartoonish generic MMO everyone has seen at least 10 times... skeptical, but still hoping for the best.
