The current MMO market is full of different multiplayer projects, but among all of these is one of the most anticipated online games right now is Elder Scrolls Online.

Building on a History of Success

Several gaming websites–Ten Ton Hammer, Gamebreaker, MMO Hut and others–asked their visitors to select the most anticipated online game. Elder Scrolls Online took first place on almost every site. That’s a great achievement for ZeniMax and Bethesda.

Do you remember Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim? These titles became legends for many players. I spent hours playing these games and many other RPG lovers are still talking about them. Now the The Elder Scrolls series is going online. Elder Scrolls will give you the opportunity to visit familiar provinces and places. Just imagine – you can visit your favorite region of Tamriel once more! You will be able to go to familiar dungeons and kill familiar monsters. Developers are doing their best to keep the atmosphere the same.

What Makes TESO Different?

Elder Scrolls Online takes place one thousand years before Skyrim. Your character starts his adventure as a member of one of three powerful factions:

  • The Aldmeri Dominion
  • The Daggerfall Covenant
  • The Ebonheart Pact

Each faction has its own reasons to be in war with other alliances but the goal of every faction is the same; to take the Ruby Throne. So your primary goal is to help your faction to succeed.

Elder Scrolls: Now with More PvP!

Many players think that Elder Scrolls Online is a game for PvE lovers, but it also has great potential for those who enjoy PvP. Representatives of three factions can fight against each other in one central province – Cyrodiil, which is specifically made for PvP. There are different battlefields there and you can help your faction defeat enemies and take the Ruby Throne. Moreover, an Emperor will be selected from members of the leading faction.

That’s right – everyone has a chance to become Emperor.

The Wait is On

Elder Scrolls Online has the chance to become the greatest game of 2013. Personally, I think ESO will be as popular as World of Warcraft. If you like the game you can find more information at my fansite http://elderscrollsonline.info I hope you’ll check it out!
