    Default Elder Scrolls Online gets release date, new gameplay trailer



    The first online Elder Scrolls game is coming early next year. Here - have a trailer to celebrate!

    Good news Elder Scrolls fans! On April the 4th, 2014, you'll be able to venture into Cyrodil in a whole new way - with friends!

    That's when The Elder Scrolls Online releases, on PC & Mac at least. It will hit PS4 and Xbone in June of the same year, giving the PC master race time to race to cap and gloat mightily.

    It's our way.

    One question, though, is about any beta plans. Here's an excerpt from Game Director Matt Firor's blog post:

    As some of you know, we’ve been in beta testing for about a year now, leading up to our most recent test in late November where we had over 300,000 people in the game over a 48 hour period. We’ve had approximately 4 million people sign up for beta and that number continues to grow. We hope that just about every one of you who have signed up for beta will get an invitation to play sometime between now and the weeks before launch. These tests are very important, not only for gameplay feedback, but also to test our infrastructure. Beta tests can sometimes be a little rough when we are testing some systems for the first time with large numbers of players. So thank you to all who have participated for your understanding and support. It is very much appreciated.

    So there you go. Soon. In the meantime, here, have a shiny gameplay trailer!

    There better be a choice to either play from a third or first person perspective.

    There is. You can swap from 1st to 3rd person mode and vice versa at will.

    People will play because of the Elder Scrolls setting. A majority of people will probably last 3-5 months in the game, due to the lore, questing, and end game PVP content. It'll be a bit more popular than Guild Wars 2, I think. Perhaps a bit less, considering the payment model they've chosen.

    Good, I'll be able to play it then, because I don't like 3rd person if it's not a shooter.

    At least it can only be better than that garbage game Guild Wars 2.

    No idea why anyone is hating on this game, from what I've seen so far it looks pretty damn good.

    Hmm, I haven't played it. However, a bunch of my friends played the beta and told me they weren't impressed, even the ones who were balls crazy about skyrim and logged thousands of hours onto it.
    I personally haven't ever been a scrolls fan and as someone who doesn't play the ES games, I don't see anything that makes me want to play ESO. I can only see how the playerbase would be scrolls fans in the first place.

    I was excited at first about ESO but after i saw some Ingame Footage i was Disappointed. The Character Animations ( Walk/Run/Fight) looked very Bad. Thats now 3 Months ago and we didnt see any Ingame Footage since then, Hopefuly they polished it and then i might try it.

    A also didnt join the Beta even i had an Invitation.

    Agree'd, trailer looks decent, i'll never judge the game by it's cover until I've personally played it.

    More popular than GW2? Never. At least not in its current p2p model (i think its p2p)

    It is, but so is Guild Wars.
    At least Guild Wars 1 was a supreme title.

    Like I said, in p2p it wont supreme GW2. Not over the time.
    Unless the game turns into a WoW2.

    Well, tbh I left GW2 a year ago and plan to never play it again. For me this game gone backwards a thousand steps from GW1. So no idea how big the playerbase is.
    But p2p is a dying race by standard for new games

    you really think atleast half of bethesdas fanbase know of guild wars? no.
    strictly speaking, A LOT of people have no idea what guild wars is if you would ask them, on the other hand, they DO know what elder scrolls is.

    I played the beta and it was soooooo boring. Im a huge elder scrolls fan too. It bums me out seeing the elder scrolls name on this game. They went into this with the wrong mindset which is "Elder scrolls is on the cover so everyone who played the other games is going to play this one herp derp"

    they should have just stuck to what they knew and made it 2-4 players with scaling based on the number of ppl in the game. would have been a thousand times better.

    are you insane? Gw2 is not garbage! perhaps its not your game but its definitley not garbage.
    Stupid comment : /

    and btw..I got my hands on a beta key for this game and I am playing elder scrolls games since
    morrowind and this game is ok..but its not very special or smth new + its not rlly elder scrolls..sure it
    looks like the game and its in the elder scrolls world but for me it feels like a darkfall with better graphic..
    had no real elder scrolls feeling (as a fan). Wildstar beta was more fun than this game + I am sick of this
    fantasy setting.

    It's nothing impressive but compared to the other 'new' MMOs that keep getting churned out, it's definitely a step above. The game just needs quite a bit of polishing and recruit some real dialogue/lore writers as the quests are super generic which is a bit disappointing considering the quest system from the series is quite well done (at least compared to others). Movement is a bit choppy and the combat is absolutely horrid, the hit boxes for you/the enemies is completely broken from my experience.

    Played the previous beta weekend and after about 10hours or so it became apparent to me, that's not gonna be for me, as much as i like the single player elder scrolls. Hated the draw distance in this game too, seems so god damn short that it was annoying. Combat was rather dull to me too. I'm pretty sure the same thing is going to happen to this game that happened with SWTOR.

    I liked it a lot personally. I've never been a super Elder Scrolls fanboy, but as a MMO it did not disappoint me.

    Looks really really boring : /
    Graphic style is just eww. From a distance almost everyone looks the same. And it seems liek they are going for the same class system they used in all the elder scrolls games which I dont think it works well for a MMO : /

    Eeeeeh, can't say anything impressed me. All the trailer did was remind me of GW2 WvW, which tells me it's likely going to have the same issues that GW2 WvW has.

    Out of all the upcoming major MMOs, the only one that even slightly interests me is EQ Next

    Meh they burned me when they said action combat was impossible in a mmorpg a while back when they first announced it then they switched to the "soft" aim combat which i'm not a huge fan of, that being said i'm sure i'll somehow get roped into playing it anyways haha, maybe i'll be pleasantly surprised since my hype level is in the negative.

    The one who needs to keep their opinion to themselves would be you, as your assumption that "everyone" agrees with you about what you think of ESO is completely and hopelessly ignorant. I was not "extremely disappointed" by ESO and in fact I very much enjoyed the game, even in its unfinished state, and I look forward to its official release.
