The lights are on
Bethesda Online is wading into the MMO waters with its appropriately titled game The Elder Scrolls Online. There's still much to learn about it, but a new trailer is a strong indicator that the game isn't just a generic RPG with the Elder Scrolls' name slapped onto it.
The nine-minute trailer, which is embedded below, highlights a variety of features, including combat, character customization, and how the game fits into the larger Elder Scrolls' lore. The game won't be split into various shards, so players will be able to team up with their buddies with relative ease. And as the trailer's conclusion shows, The Elder Scrolls Online features the epic-scale battles that the other Elder Scrolls games have only dreamed of.

This game look amazing! Graphically and as a game!
Sounds like the questing system GW2 uses which is awesome! really makes you want to see more! And also i like the use of a megaserver as the first GW had, was really nice. Can't wait to see more of how this turns out! i just hope they get the instances right, i want tactics and real team-work, thats where imo, GW2 really fell flat.
Oh no, I may have to bend on my stance to never play an MMO :(
This actually..looks good 0.o coming from a long time WoW player.
I hope this has a similar business model to GW2.
This is a beautiful game.
