Latest Headlines for Elder Scrolls Online

  • The Challenge is Welcome

    While there have been a few bumps in the road for the launch of The Elder Scrolls Online, these have been typical for MMOs. Launch has worked out mostly as anyone with MMO experience might expect, with some players experiencing issues, and some painful growing pains that began once the gates opened up to the masses. Yet this will concentrate more on some pain of a different kind - the kind inflicted upon players through gameplay.

  • Review in Progress Part 1

    The Elder Scrolls Online is easily the most anticipated and biggest MMO launch since Star Wars: The Old Republic. Many people probably wrote ESO off as another SWTOR in terms of hype and let down, but so far... I believe those people are mistaken. There are a lot of wonderful design choices in ESO, and plenty of bugs to grind an axe on. But one thing's prevailed: I'm having a lot of fun, and the rabbit hole keeps going deeper.

  • A Look at the Game Via the Numbers

    Bethesda has published a fascinating infographic to give players an idea of the sheer enormity of the game. In "Elder Scrolls Online By the Numbers", we are told that five million people registered for the beta, that someone offered their firstborn for a chance at beta participation, and that there are over ten thousand NPCs in the game, among other interesting tidbits. Click the image below to check out the full infographic.

  • Servers Down in Preparation for Launch Tonight

    It looks like Early Access is over, folks. Elder Scrolls Online's servers have gone down for one last bit of maintenance in preparation for the game's official launch on 4/4. However, the servers are scheduled to open back up later tonight... click through to see when.

  • A Successful Pre-Launch?

    MMORPG launches in the past have never had a good reputations. Players that are waiting for the servers to go live for the first time are usually met with an array of issues, ranging from not being able to connect to the game, stuck in a queue, or even persistent roll backs. If this is such a common problem among MMOs why hasn't a developer come up with a solution to fix them?

The regular Tuesday maintenance was not slated for today but subsequent to announcing that, servers were taken offline for an indeterminate amount of time.

  • There’s Nothing like Launch

    We're on the verge of a couple of major launches. The first, The Elder Scrolls Online will already have had its first early access players by the time you read this. The other, WildStar, is coming in just about two months. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to discuss MMO launches, and why, despite the bumps and kinks, it is one of the best times for establishing community.

  • The ESO Post-Launch Wishlist

    Yep. We aren't even live yet and I'm already looking ahead to what's next for The Elder Scrolls Online. That's not to say that I feel the game is deficient in launch features, but half the excitement of playing a new MMO is pondering about where it will go next. I've got a couple of things I'd like to see, so let's jump into it.

  • My Endgame is Not Your Endgame

    The term "endgame" has become a contentious one, with people arguing the definition. Part of the issue is when people think that an MMO should have certain things and fit a certain definition. Others choose to focus upon what a game in particular "lacks" rather than what it has to offer. With The Elder Scrolls Online, this has also been the case. Yet ESO's offerings for higher level players offer some fitting choices.

  • What To Do At Level 50

    One of the harshest criticisms launched at any MMO these days is that it lacks an end game. To give Elder Scrolls Online players a peek ahead at what's available at Level 50, Zenimax's official blog has been updated with all of the activities in which players can take part.

  • No Two Crafters Are Quite the Same

    In a new blog post on the Elder Scrolls Online site, the team takes a look at crafting and disseminates some interesting, if little-known, facts about crafting as it will appear in ESO. Of particular note is the fact that, according to the article, no two crafters will ever be quite the same.

  • The Longevity of PvP in ESO

    We've all played them, MMORPGs with leveling caps, WoW, SWTOR, DAoC, GW2, I can go on for a while listing them but you get my drift. How much play time was during the leveling experience? Very little, right? Most of your time playing was at "end game" or level cap. This week I want to take a step back from all the hype of the Elder Scrolls Online launch and talk about something that might be over looked, the longevity of PvP in ESO.

  • No Adventure Zones?

    April 4th is shaping up to be an epic day, if you go by early reviews that is. It looks like Captain America: The Winter Soldier could end up being one of the best Marvel movies yet.... But you probably are here for news about that other big thing coming out on April 4th.
