As if Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls games couldn't get any more addicitive, the franchise is going online. The RPG turned MMO will be unveiled in the June issue of Game Informer, and a few details have slipped out already. The Elder Scrolls Online is set a millenium before Skyrim and promises solo questing, public dungeons, and PvP combat. Three factions will reportedly do battle over Cyrodiil, which served as the setting for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
A "brief teaser trailer" will be released tomorrow along with a single screenshot. Game Informer says its Elder Scrolls Online Hub will be updated with new content throughout the month, as well.
Although The Elder Scrolls Online has been in development for several years already, it won't be ready until 2013. A holiday release seems more likely than a launch earlier in the year. PC and Mac versions are in the works, and it looks like they could be released at the same time. Console gamers may be out of luck, however. Skyrim is available on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but MMOs have largely steered clear of consoles, and there's no mention of them in the Game Informer story or on the Bethesda Blog.
