The Elder Scrolls is officially going online

1 min read

Bethesda today announced that the much rumored MMO version of its popular Elder Scrolls series of RPG’s is a reality.

The Elder Scrolls series has always been about narrative and atmosphere, but now you’ll be tasked with forging your own story as the game will indeed be making the transition to the Massively Multiplayer Online arena very soon. 
Apparently Bethesda has been hard at work on the game for several years now and has some pretty lofty goals for it.

“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted,” said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online“It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”

Now, as far as details about the online successor to the Skyrim/Oblivion/Morrowind crown- there aren’t any yet. Bethesda is still being very hush-hush about it, though I’d expect a freer flow of info right round E3 time.

For now, you can expect lots and lots of grinding. And if you’d like to know what we think about the idea, why not click here.
