Gaming News: Bethesda Announce ‘Elder Scrolls Online’
The first Elder Scrolls game to allow players to explore the famous fantasy world with others, it is being developed for PC and Mac under the leadership of industry veteran Matt Firor, who has spent the last two decades working in online game development.
“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends – something fans have long said they wanted,” said Firor. “It will be extremely rewarding to finally unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
According to Game Informer the title will be set 1,000 years prior to last year’s RPG smash Skyrim, at a time when Daedric prince Molag Bal is attempting to assume control of Tamriel. It is currently slated for a 2013 release.
