I have mixed feelings about this one.
On one hand, most MMOs tend to be steaming piles of shit. Well, clones of steaming piles of shit, to be more precise. But at the same time, Zenimax Online Studios’ lead developer, Matt Firor, says that the team is working hard to make “the best MMO ever made — and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
The game will be set 1,000 years before the events of Skyrim take place, and will involve three factions fighting for control of the throne. The story doesn’t sound very original, but hell, that’s not what any of us play TES games for anyway.
The Elder Scrolls Online has been in development for years for both PC and Mac, and so far, there’s no sign of a release date. I’m not sure how an online game will work with the traditional Elder Scrolls formula, but we’ll see if Zenimax can pull this one off.
