Be Who You Want to Be in The Elder Scrolls Online, New Trailer

Learn all about levelling up and customizing your character in The Elder Scrolls Online in a brand new video presentation from developers Zenimax.

In this upcoming MMO-twist on the popular Elder Scroll RPG series, you’ll be able to pick from an assortment of stat and ability options to tweak and tune your avatar to play the way you want to play. Levelling up will earn you a point to spend in each of the two categories.

Stats will allow you to tune your strengths in either Health, Magicka, or Stamina, while players will also be able to spend their ability points in a number of different Skill Lines to customize their hero even further. Abilities, both active and passive, can also Morph to further branch out into different, more specific roles while Ultimate Abilities earned at the end of a Skill Line will give you access to some of the more deadly attacks the game has to offer.

Though Skill Lines are defined by Race and Class, they can be tuned to fill almost any role and there is also a wide range of General Skills to master that are available to all Races and Classes, including armor and weapon skills.

Check out the details in the video below!

The Elder Scrolls Online is currently in beta and launches on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Mac next year.

    I want to play as a race that actually suits my playstyle this time.
    BUT ALAS, 15 FUCKING BUCKS A MONTH.

  • Daniel

    I would love to play this game. But no way am I paying that price.

  • George

    I feel the same way as you guys, this game looks really cool and promising but I am not going to pay 15 bucks a month when I’m already paying for ps plus.

  • Joey Marcelo Asturias

    I think I’ll give it a shot for a month but not right away…

    • Storm_Worm5364

      Ye, good luck giving them $60 for just a month….

      • zacflame

        That’s 75$ for one month.
        60$ plus 15$ for one month.

  • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

    lol not nearly worth 15 a month

  • James K

    I stick to Runescape.

    • zacflame

      It used to be so good…
      …But then they ruined it.

    • George

      Yeah that game used to be so awesome but now it’s so complicated and weird from the little time I’ve played in RS 3, I quit a while a go but that was a lot of my childhood. Good memories in that game.

      • zacflame

        RS 3?
        What does that mean?
        I played RS in 2009.

        • George

          Well the one you played was RS 2 like the second version if you will, runescape 3 is the third version of runescape, like the third one with a huge update.

          • zacflame

            So RS 3 is dungeoneering and “constitution” instead of “health”?

            • George

              Basically RS 3 is once Evolution of Combat was implemented. I mean like MAJOR update a new skill or renaming of a skill doesn’t qualify it as a new version.

            • zacflame

              Changing health to constitution was a big enough change to make me stop playing.

            • George

              Sorry but I don’t really remember what the change was but you know what I mean right, I’m kinda having some trouble explaining it lol.

            • zacflame

              Oh yeah, totally.

  • dieger

    but i can do this already in skyrim/oblivion/fallout/morrowind etc. and no monthly fee unless the combat is GREATLY i mean GREATLY improved then its pretty uneeded

    • Oblivion_Lost667

      I wouldn’t say it has the same combat as Skyrim, it’s much more MMO-ized, with passive targeting and such. The main appeal of this is that it’s an MMO, not a SP game, there was a large calling for a MP TES game, and they answered with this, which is it’s own appeal over the SP games, or a downside depending on whether you like MMOs or not.

      • Brandon Griffin

        When I heard about TESO, I thought of quick, COD style party-play with Skyrim-like gameplay, where I could frolic about having a blast or doing quests. What we got was World of Warcraft: The Elder Scrolls Edition.

        Needless to say, I was disappointed.

  • James Mulhall

    So the game released about a month ago and they’ve already released TWO DLC’s! Am I the only one that sees a problem with that? Along with that, I doubt this game will even be playable until after new year or just before Christmas.

    The fact that developers and publishers get away with stuff like this is beyond me, I think its quite obvious this game was never tested on the scale that it should’ve been, if you get random crashes on a game like this that happen as often as they do, it should EASILY be a priority over DLC during the development time DICE have. I seriously think developers and publishers think they can get away with releasing broken games just because they can patch them a few months after they make all the cash from it.. remember when you couldn’t patch games and if you released a broken product that didn’t actually work you’d have to reship all the games and give everyone who bought a broken copy the new version.. reminds me of that San Andreas hot coffee controversy.. R* released a game with a sex type mini-game, the games rating went up to adult and all of the games had to be taken off the shelf and given back to people who already bought the game JUST so they can remove a basic line of SCM code.

  • JustinD

    By the nine! 15$ a month. Yeah… No

  • Bengalsfan9595

    I’ll just stick to getting EverQuest Next…

  • Cycovision

    $180 a year? Not even CoD is that bad.

  • Justin

    Wtf kinda pricing is that!?

    • zacflame

      AAA pricing + high budget MMO= ESO pricing.

  • Brandon Griffin

    They should have scrapped this game after the sub-par reaction to the gameplay a few months ago and moved on with a new Fallout or the Elder Scrolls VI, if you ask me. Not a chance of me paying $20 dollars a month for one game (counting PS Plus).
