Back in January, we informed you about the conflict between two talented modding teams. Skyrim Online was an interesting concept and as we predicted, there was a room for an Online version of The Elder Scrolls. Naturally, Bethesda has stepped in and announced – via GameInformed – The Elder Scrolls Online. Yeap, we saw that coming a mile away. The Elder Scrolls Online will be a prequel to Skyrim as players will discover an entirely new chapter of Elder Scrolls history in this ambitious world, set a millennium before the events of Skyrim as the daedric prince Molag Bal tries to pull all of Tamriel into his demonic realm. The game is slated for a 2013 release, exclusively on the PC and Mac.
Game director and MMO veteran Matt Firor said:
“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.”
