Eligium: Review
Eligium is Frogster's entry into the browser F2P market. Now that we have put Eligium through its paces, we've got thoughts to share about the game.

Brought to us by German publisher Frogster Interactive, Eligium is a free-to-play (F2P) fantasy MMORPG from Chinese developers Goldcool. Upon hearing this, many people may be quick to jump to negative conclusions and dismiss this game as just another cookie cutter MMORPG. However, there are a few things that Eligium does to set itself apart from the sea of F2P contenders out there. Whether those are enough to save it from mediocrity, is a matter of opinion.

What the Elder Scrolls Online Means for MMOs
Now that Game Informer has revealed the presence of Elder Scrolls Online, we have a few thoughts to share about what we think the game will mean to the MMORPG space.

I don't think I'm reaching if I say we have all spent hours of our RPG time in the world of the Elder Scrolls with around half a dozen games and endless gameplay over the past two decades the franchise has become legendary (and deservedly so). Skyrim has been voted the number one game of the 2011 many times over. Now, we will finally get to adventure in Elder Scrolls Online with our friends, and without the shoddy help of a third-party add-on. Folks, ESO is a reality. Did I call it in my predictions last year, and this year, or did I call it? The scope of an online version of Elder Scrolls is massive. It is the perfect world for an MMO to take place in. It's ripe for the plunder as it were. But what does this do to the MMO market for the next ten years, if anything?

Game of the Week
The Elder Scrolls Online is an upcoming MMORPG based on the popular Elder Scrolls franchise. The game is in development at Zenimax Online and is set 1000 years prior to the events of Skyrim. Players will play as a member of one of three factions (comprised of a total of nine familiar Elder Scrolls races) in an effort to stop the Daedric Prince Molag Bal who seeks to conquer all of Tamriel.

Many of the familiar provinces from the series will appear in the game in one form or another, but the three factions will all clash in conflict over the Imperial homeland of Cyrodiil with the goal of placing an Emperor of their own upon the throne.

The Elder Scrolls Online is set to launch in 2013.

Be sure to stay tuned to MMORPG.com for all the latest information and media on the game!
