    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.
