Meet the ogrim, one of the Daedra you’ll encounter in The Elder Scrolls Online
ESO line was the longest line I waited in all weekend ,it took us about two hours to get to play the game. If you like how Skyrim plays, you will be right at home playing ESO. The party was … Continue reading
Destructoid – “As the developers at Zenimax were showing off the game, you could tell that they really cared about the history of the Elder Scrolls franchise. It was clear after playing it for an extended period of time that there will be lots of lore here to uncover; perhaps more than any other Elder Scrolls game before it.”
Gamefront – “If you enjoyed Skyrim and its DLCs, you’re going to enjoy TESO. It hits everything that made Skyrim great: deep world immersion, build-your-own class system, exploration-based content, action-based combat, discovery-based crafting and minimal UI intrusion.”
Games.on.net – “The Elder Scrolls Online is shaping up to meet a lot of the promises it made when it was announced, and for this it should be applauded.”
GamesRadar – “The combat is also very reactive. Players will have to keep an eye on the enemy’s movements and attacks to avoid damage, block attacks, and score critical hits.”
IGN – “I’ll say this about ESO: I wanted to keep playing.I wanted to find out what lay at the end of an unmarked riddle quest I’d found in a half-buried treasure chest, and I wanted to find adventures lay in wait in the alleys of Daggerfall.”
Massively – “I’m happy to say that for ESO, the proof is in the pudding. I’ve barely scratched the surface of this massive online game world, and I already can’t wait to get my elderly Orcish hands all over it again at PAX East.”
MMORPG – “For now, Elder Scrolls gives players a great class with the Sorcerer and does not pin you down as a robe-wearing, staff wielding, grey bearded fellow in a pointy hat!”
PC Gamer – “The system is impressive precisely because it’s so expandable: it’s easy to see how new skill lines can add options to the game without imbalancing it in the way that an extended level cap or tacked-on alternate advancement system might.”
PCGames N – “It’s a fast paced, well thought out, friendly and impressive MMO game.”
Penny Arcade – “Combat itself is fluid; no standing in one place while channeling a spell or waiting for a cooldown to finish.”
Polygon – “Elder Scrolls Online does a fine job of matching the mouse-based combat of the game’s PC predecessors with left click serving as an attack, right click as block with up to five abilities paired to number keys (that can be expanded).”
Revision3 – “I like being able to loose yourself in the Elder Scrolls.”
Shack News – “What I saw was heartening. The Elder Scrolls Online appears to have a solid foundation and, judging strictly from the small snippet of my hands-on time, hits the right tone for the Elder Scrolls series.”
TenTonHammer – “Without drilling down into storyline spoilers, much like my experience last fall, the main quest on the island gave me a certain amount of freedom to decide when I was ready to begin the heist and ultimately set sail for the orc-controlled island of Betnikh.”
The Escapist – “But I will say that those three hours felt like five minutes because I was interested and engaged at all times.”
ZAM – “For sheer enjoyment and the quality of the game at this early stage, this latest session with The Elder Scrolls Online confirmed its place as my most anticipated MMO of the year.”
http://www.mmorpg.com Garrett Fuller catches up with Creative Director Paul Sage to talk about Elder Scrolls Online’s crafting, progression, and lots more.
From Friday, March 22nd through Sunday, March 24th, we’ll be giving you a chance to play The Elder Scrolls Online at the Bethesda booth (number 912). Visitors to our booth will also have the opportunity to talk with members of The Elder Scrolls Online Dev Team and pick up some show-exclusive ESO items including a free ouroboros t-shirt and three purchasable alliance t-shirts. As we get closer to the show, we’ll be sharing more details about our plans for PAX East—stay tuned, and we hope to see you there!
The drums of war have reached a fever pitch, calling the warriors of Tamriel to the field of battle. The Daggerfall Covenant, the Ebonheart Pact, and the Aldmeri Dominion will take up arms and fight for control of Cyrodiil, the Imperial City, and the throne of Tamriel.
Featuring three-sided Player vs. Player (PvP) gameplay, The Elder Scrolls Online supports hundreds of players on screen at once in an open world fight for control of Cyrodiil. Seize, hold, and control the resources of massive strongholds. Utilize massive siege weapons to crumble fortress walls and smash through fortified gates. Conquer the Imperial City, and your alliance’s top player could even be crowned Emperor!
Get ready for the most intense online PvP experience ever created, with The Elder Scrolls Online.
In The Elder Scrolls Online, players choose to become members of one of three alliances. Each alliance has a unique story and specific goals.
The Daggerfall Covenant is comprised of the two Provinces of northwest Tamriel: High Rock and Hammerfell, home to the Bretons and the Redguards. The Covenant has also offered the Orcs the opportunity to return to their ancient homeland of Orsinium in exchange for their support. Working together, the three races have formed a powerful alliance that aims to restore the Second Empire and bring peace and prosperity back to Tamriel.
The Ebonheart Pact is the most tenuous of alliances, consisting of former enemies turned allies in northern and eastern Tamriel. The Nords, Dark Elves, and Argonians of Skyrim, Morrowind, and Black Marsh fight to restore stability to the Empire and ensure their own autonomy.
The Aldmeri Dominion is composed of the three races of southern Tamriel: the Wood Elves of Valenwood, the Khajiit of Elsweyr and the leaders of the Pact, the High Elves of the Summerset Isles. The Aldmeri Dominion fights to stop the dangerous machinations of humankind, and restore the Elven dominance in Tamriel.
Player vs. Player (PvP) in The Elder Scrolls Online is fun, rewarding, and accessible for PvP veterans or new players with no PvP experience.
The collapse of the Second Empire has left a vacuum of power in the Imperial City, and three alliances battle for supremacy. Whoever controls the Ruby Throne will crown an Emperor, and their alliance will rule all of Tamriel.
The Elder Scrolls Online features a battle leveling system that temporarily increases a player’s combat effectiveness to compete against higher level players, ensuring that everyone enjoys the experience, from players who have never experienced PvP combat, to seasoned veterans demanding a deep, rewarding PvP experience. Players may join the PvP action as soon as they reach level 10, and jump right into the action without fear.
Whether you’re a veteran or a rookie, you’ll be able to fight as a valuable member of your alliance and perhaps even lay claim to the throne.
The Elder Scrolls Online features leaderboards and achievements. Keep track of your ranking and compare yourself, your alliance, and your guild to that of your friends and enemies.
While fighting for an alliance in PvP, players earn points that can help them purchase siege weaponry and other bonuses to aid their allies in the heated pitch of battle.
Just jumping in for the first time? Don’t worry – you can still earn siege weapons and bonuses! If you have yet to play PvP and want to join, you can contribute immediately by using gold earned in Player vs. Environment (PvE) in lieu of points.
