The rumours were true! Bethesda has announced that The Elder Scrolls: Online, an MMO based on the hugely successful and popular Elder Scrolls RPG series is in development for PC and Mac.
The game is being developed by ZeniMax Online Studios under the management of Matt Firor who has 20 years of online game development under his belt. Matt Firor commented on the announcement saying.
“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. It will be extremely rewarding finally to 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 who made the reveal, the game will be set 1000 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and will allow you to explore the whole province of Tamriel including the provinces of Cyrodiil and Skyrim.
This comes hot off the back of the multi award winning game Skyrim, right after receiving an update for Kinect compatibility and a new DLC being announced named “Dawnguard”
No news on a release date yet, but the game will be available in English, German and French languages.
