Latest Headlines for Elder Scrolls Online

  • A Responsive Road Towards Launch

    With the Elder Scrolls Online launch less than a month away now, there's no doubt the Zenimax team is burning the midnight oil on getting the game out the door and fully polished. Yet, with several key items of beta feedback from the testers emerging over the past few weeks, the team is still focusing on addressing these pre-launch. That responsiveness is reassuring, and it's bringing us back to some of the greater purpose of beta testing.

  • ESO's Addon Conundrum

    Traditionally, at least for the MMO genre, the more information available to players via the game's UI, the better. As a result, MMO UI designs often end up being deficient in some way, and depending on how much foresight the developers had, the UI is maligned and rigidly remains as is, or the UI is moddable and the player community releases a slew of mods to shore things up.

  • Zenimax - A Good Guy Developer

    A lot of people gave Zenimax a hard time when they first announced The Elder Scrolls Online. Even though Zenimax Online Studios is a sister company to Bethesda, it is a grand undertaking to take such a beloved series and convert it into a MMO. In this week's article we're going to ask a bold question, could Zenimax be one of the best companies that has developed an MMO?

  • Examining the Economy in ESO

    The Elder Scrolls Online will not launch with a feature that some MMORPG players almost take for granted now - an auction house. Instead, ESO will feature a system where individuals are on their own, as well as an economy intricately tied into the game's guild system. This way of handling the player economy has multiple implications for ESO's features and seems intended to encourage players to actually talk to one another in some ways. Will it be a success?

  • Starter Islands No More?

    A recent post on Reddit points to changes that cropped up on ESO's Lonterm Beta Test Server (PTS). The starter islands many players claimed were boring are now optional, collision detection is in, and much more.

  • Will Darkness Fall on the Imperial City?

    If you tried to enter the Imperial City in Cyrodiil during any of the recent Elder Scrolls Online beta tests, you were probably disappointed to find out that it wasn't actually possible to do so. While you get to fight a dramatic looking Daedric Titan at the entrance, defeating said Titan will only lead you to a passage blocked off by a (lethal) magical barrier. It's clear that Zenimax Online is reserving this space for something significant, but what?

  • Blacksmithing: A Journey from Raw Materials to Armor

    The Elder Scrolls Online team has released a brand new video to show off the crafting side of Tamriel. In this video, the Blacksmithing crafting profession takes center stage and follows an intrepid crafter from finding raw materials, refining them and using them to create a set of armor. Check it out!

  • A Deep Look at ESO's Racial Skills

    It can be traced back to the very early editions of pen and paper Dungeons and Dragons (1974) and even Chainmail from (1971), possibly even further. Even back then, Special Racial Abilities were an important part to creating an immersive and unique game. We're going to discuss character racial abilities and find which role each character will be best suited for in The Elder Scrolls Online.

  • Ask Us Anything Tackles Preorders & PvP Among Others

    The latest Elder Scrolls Online Ask Us Anything has been posted on the official site. This time, the bulk of questions came in on two topics of keen interest to fans: PvP and the preorder program but also ranged as wide as guild features, whether or not players can adventure together from the get go and others.

  • Brian Wheeler Talks PvP and 'Darkness Falls'

    We recently caught up with Elder Scrolls Online lead PvP designer Brian Wheeler to discuss all things PvP and Alliance War in ESO, including the possibility of adding a 'Darkness Falls' type space to Cyrodiil.

  • Why ESO’s ‘Slower’ Pacing Leaves Me Optimistic

    MMOs have evolved in many ways, but sometimes players want to sit down and enjoy a good multi-course meal spiced with good conversation, music, a couple of drinks, and spending time with one another over a quick fast food stop. Leveling speed is a topic for debate, and it's been brought up as both a positive and a negative aspect from the press impressions for The Elder Scrolls Online.

  • The Best & Worst Things About ESO

    If you've turned on a computer in the last week, you've probably heard the news: Zenimax is finally pulling back the veil on Elder Scrolls Online. Beginning with the lifting of the press NDA last week and now the total opening of the floodgates, MMORPG has been on the cutting edge every step of the way. I have remained silent, a member of the weekend betas and an occasional visitor to the 24/7 internal test, still bound to NDA. That time has come.

  • The NDA Lifts

    Participants in Elder Scrolls Online's beta are now freed from the constraints of the non-disclosure agreement according to an announcement on the official site.

  • I’m OK with ESO Faction Turncoats

    There's been a lot of controversy lately about "faction turncoats". What's funny to me is that this is the kind of thing players have been dying for Zenimax to allow. But now that we have it, the folks who wanted factions to remain race-locked are now speaking out about how they think this move is a.) A cash grab or b.) Somehow wronging the lore or c.) Breaking the game's PVP. Parties are crying over a bit of spilt milk but this is all better for the game.

  • The Alliance War Gets It Right

    There has been a lot of discussion about whether or not The Elder Scrolls Online gets this or that right over the past week or so, but what is really going to make or break ESO is the quality of the game's Alliance vs. Alliance warfare. Face it, AvA is the feature that really has the potential to set ESO apart from its peers; it's the game's secret sauce.

  • ESO: It’s The Little Things

    Last week, the press was finally given an opportunity to weigh in on The Elder Scrolls Online with a torrent of previews that flooded the interwebs. The response was decidedly mixed overall, but personally, I can say I'm a fan of what I've played so far. Even after putting in time for my previews, I played quite a bit more of ESO over this past weekend and I found myself consistently surprised at all the little things that added up to make an experience I was already enjoying even better.
