One of the things that many game makers are coming to grips with is the inclusion of social 'connectedness' in today's MMOs. In our latest Elder Scrolls Online column, we take a look at how TESO devs are making sure their game has all the social connectivity that anyone could possibly want.

“...Matt Firor took the stage again to tell us about how ESO will be the most socially connected MMO ever. Facebook, Twitter, Google+… they’ll all be seamlessly integrated into the game from the start. You can import all your friends, circles, followers into the game directly. You can even make a Guild Page on Facebook prior to launch, have your friends join it, have guild members join it, and then import it directly into ESO. Boom, instant guild.

Instead they believe that Elder Scrolls will benefit by making itself as socially connected to the existing networks as possible.”
