The Elder Scrolls online. The popular RPG series, which has hit a time high of mainstream popularly with Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is entering the world of Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games by taking the world of Tamriel and allowing scores and scores of players to join in, create their characters and wage make-believe war for the glory of the three guilds they choose to join in. It promises to be a whole new experience of gaming that will immerse players into the vast and colorful world the Elder Scrolls games have been known for, and all they need is a computer and a credit card. Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls series has been a fan favorite since the first game came out in 1994 with Arena. Since then, many of Bethesda’s installments to the series have yielded in multiple awards, including Game of the Year for many of the titles under the Elder Scrolls banner.
But what sets the Elder Scrolls games apart, and how apparent will that difference be in the game’s online presence? One thing that makes the series stand out is how it appeals to gamers old and new alike.
A franchise that has run for 20 years like Elder Scrolls has definitely would have legions of loyal players, and considering the popularity of the newer games (especially now that gaming in itself has reached a peak in popularity like never before) has been winning over new gamers as well. With 20 years worth of video games under the title, the Elder Scrolls franchise has also managed to build a long history that would make the MMORPG experience perhaps more deeper. Even if you weren’t a huge fan or haven’t played all of the games, players are sure to see familiar faces, places and objects that could instantly give players a level of comfort that they might not have experienced with other MMORPGs. Indeed, such a level of popularity makes it arguable that this MMORPG has been long overdue. It is about time that all players of the Elder Scrolls games have an actual community for fans to enjoy the game together. With the Elder Scrolls games available only on single player mode, Bethesda finally taking the series online gives players a chance to do battle with their friends in the game they love so much. The game even boasts a “mega-server” wherein all characters online will be playing in a singular world. This may be a game changer in the industry of MMORPGs.
