Evan wants to tell you five reasons you shouldn't miss out on The Elder Scrolls Online! Click above to view. Beta signups opened today, allowing players to dive right into the action in an early build of the game.
If you haven't been following development, The Elder Scrolls Online is a much more social continuation of the beloved and richly fabricated universe which holds the continent of Tamriel and all the difficulties that arise in it.
The game will be set a millenium prior to the events of Skyrim, with the Daedric Prince Molag Bal appearing as the main antagonist as he attempts to conquer all of Tamriel. Players will be able to explore most of the continent, and join one of three factions warring over the throne of the Emperor of Tamriel:
- The Aldmeri Dominion, composed of Altmer, Bosmer and Khajiit (represented by a bird of prey)
- The Daggerfall Covenant, composed of Bretons, Redguards and Orcs (represented by a lion)
- The Ebonheart Pact, composed of Dunmer, Nords and Argonians (represented by a dragon).
