Elder Scrolls Online Articles
Anyone who has ever played an Elder Scrolls game knows some of its most iconic locations - Elsweyr, Skyrim, Black Marsh, Hammerfell, Summerset Isles. The loveliness of each one in Elder Scrolls Online often makes one imagine what it would be like to go their "in real life". With the just-announced A Trip of a Lifetime sweepstakes, that dream can come true.
With last week’s release of Elder Scrolls Online – One Tamriel, a whole new and much larger experience is awaiting players. Tamriel has thrown its doors wide open to allow adventurers to take on the world in new ways by allowing them to go wherever, whenever they like.

In this week's quiz, we're putting your tastes and likes to the test for Tamriel. You may be Aldmeri, you may be Ebonheart, or five of you might be Daggerfall. But what SHOULD you be? This quiz will help sort it out.
It’s been a long but insanely productive year for Zenimax Online Studios. Elder Scrolls Online came out, held its own, but was a rather contentious title for such a widely adored franchise. Fast forward several months and ESO is now buy to play, rebranded as “Tamriel Unlimited”, and quite frankly, it’s one of the best theme park MMORPGs on the market. And now it’s also on the PS4 and XBOX ONE. So, how does it play?
The rumors can end now, folks. It’s official, as of this moment in time. Elder Scrolls Online is ditching its subscription model in favor of a model more akin to Guild Wars 2. Simply buy the base game, gain access to all of its content, and never pay another dime. In addition, the PS4 and XBOX One Editions will be launching officially on June 9th. It’s all coming up Tamriel this year, it seems. However, that’s not quite all she wrote. Read on for the full details.
This will be the final “In Progress” Elder Scrolls Online article before next week’s final score tally. I’ll maintain that the big detractor from ESO’s score (based on the average out of 10 of our seven categories) will be the major culprit of “polish”. It’s plain to see that for all its fun, ESO wasn’t quite ready for launch. But we’ll get to all of that next week. Today I’m going to talk about the PVP in Tamriel: The Alliance War or AVA.
For the first week’s article, head here. I’ve locked in around 30 hours so far, I’m sitting at level 17, and just finally completed the first main zone of the Ebonheart Pact. By completed, I mean I’ve finished the quests achievement, unlocked all the POIs on the map, and collected every skyshard available. And yet, I’ve not completed the Fungal Grotto and I’ve not even set foot in Cyrodiil.
Our own Bill Murphy has a list of the good and bad from our recent preview weekend, and I’d encourage you to check it out. But, like a doctor judging a problematic patient, he’s also asked me to chime in with a second opinion. While we agree on a several areas about what makes ESO a blast to play, I’m a little concerned about some of the game’s more vital organs.
After Zenimax's announcement last week that The Elder Scrolls Online really is going to happen, the MMO-niverse has been packed with fans discussing TES. We've got our own unique take on the game and invite you to check it out.
