As we found out yesterday, Bethesda is cooking up an MMO set in its Elder Scrolls universe. The game is due out in 2013 and will offer a blend of solo quests, public dungeoning, and some PvP combat to spice things up. Well, there's now a brief teaser trailer to go along with the announcement. Check it out:
The Elder Scrolls Online is supposed to be set 1000 years before Skyrim, and it will take place in Cyrodill, which lies to the south of that game's namesake province. Considering the trailer and logos, though, one would hope dragons will still be part of the game.
I can't say I'm an avid MMO player. In fact, I can't say I'm an MMO player at all—the whole premise of games like World of Warcraft seems like a waste of time to me. Still, I can't help but be somewhat curious about The Elder Scrolls Online. Bethesda has always made top-notch games, and although TSO is in the works at a different development house (ZeniMax Online Studios), the bar is set very high indeed.
