To those who have been waiting for a Massively Multiplayer Online experience within an Elder Scrolls game, you can now mark the days in your calendar. The Elder Scrolls Online will be released for PC and Mac on April 4, 2014. The PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game have also been given a release window; June 2014.
The Elder Scrolls Online is set roughly 1,000 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, with most of the entire world of Tamriel playable at one point or another (some territories from previous Elder Scrolls games to be locked out for expansion purposes). You can choose to represent yourself as one of the three factions: the Aldmeri Dominion (consisting of high elves, wood elves and Khajiit), the Daggerfall Covenant (consisting of Bretons, Redguards and Orcs) or the Ebonheart Pact (consisting of Nords, dark elves and Argonians.
While there is a notable interest in the progress of The Elder Scrolls Online, it does not come without controversy. The game will be released with a monthly subscription on all platforms; a payment method that few successful MMORPG’s can pull off this day and age. World of Warcraft seems to be the grand exception, although they have been losing subscribers at a dramatic rate as of late.
Either way, The Elder Scrolls Online will be released on April 4, 2014 for PC and Mac, with the PS4 and Xbox One versions to come out in June of 2014. Here is the latest trailer:
