The Elder Scrolls Online Announced

We knew they were up to something (Fallout MMO or a TES MMO). Now we know.

We all knew about Zenimax Online Studios, we just weren't sure what they were working on. Some said they were working on a Fallout MMO, others said an Elder Scrolls MMO, and then there was always the possibility that they were creating something totally (no). 

Today, Zenimax has announced that they have been making an MMO set in the Elder Scrolls universe. It is said to take place a millennium before Skyrim. There aren't many details but we do know that there will be three battling factions, solo questing, public dungeons, and PvP. 

This is either going to be the most amazing thing ever, or a total failure. I'm a little worried since it is being made by Zenimax Online Studios and not Bethesda, but I'm sure there will be some Bethesda dudes keeping things moving in the right direction. The Elder Scrolls universe is one of the richest the PC RPG world has. Let's hope they don't screw this up. There has yet to be a bad Elder Scrolls game. 

There say a trailer will be released tomorrow. I'll post it as soon as I see it.

 We'll see...I'm somewhat skeptical of how it'll be implemented, but the world would probably lend itself pretty well to an MMO.

 Hope it isn't an insipid borefest, like the Skyrim/Oblivion online mods I have tried.

 yeah... wtll the main problem with the online mode for skytim and oblivion is that there aren't many people running around.

 I was pretty bummed when I found out that the fallout MMO was cancelled..Interplay was working on it but bethesda bought out the name "Fallout" So they cancelled development :(

 It's running on the hero engine, the same engine as the TORtanic. I have no hopes for any MMO these days. Can't say I'm surprised Zenimax is giving a shot at this market.

 i predict an epic fail, i would rather see a 4 player co-op multiplayer of some sort. not an mmo

I was thinking a party play kinda thing like GTA and Red Dead have would work best.
