The Elder Scrolls Online Beta Opens With a New Trailer

Not many modern day videogame universes are as suited to an MMO adaptation as Tamriel’s sprawling landscape. Sure, there’s some familiar gameplay elements that fans of the series will be keen to see make an appearance, but the richness of the history of Tamriel and the mythologies present in The Elder Scrolls’ world could make for a very interesting MMO.

Well, you’ll be able to judge for yourself soon enough. Beta sign-ups are now being taken over on the official website. In addition, there’s a new trailer which is almost six minutes long. In the trailer, you’ll meet the factions and see some of the classes you’ll be able to choose from. It’s a heavily cinematic CGI look, rather than anything representative of gameplay, but don’t let that put you off – it looks quite spectacular.


This is scheduled for a 2013 release on PC and Mac. Hopefully, we’ll be taking a more substantive look at it soon.
