Game Details:

The Elder Scrolls Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by ZeniMax Online studios. It is part of The Elder Scrolls franchise, and the first multiplayer installment. It was originally announced on May 2, 2012 in an exclusive reveal by Game Informer. The game is set in the continent of Tamriel and features a storyline indirectly connected with the previous Elder Scrolls games. It will be set a 1000 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and around 800 years before The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, with the Daedric Prince Molag Bal appearing as the main antagonist as he attempts to pull all of Tamriel to his realm of Coldharbour.

Most of the continent of Tamriel will be playable in the game (although much of it will be locked off for expansion content), and players will have the opportunity to join any of the three factions warring over the throne of the Emperor of TamrielL The Aldmeri Dominion (represented by an eagle), composed of Altmer (High elf), Bosmer (Wood elf), and Khajiit; the Daggerfall Covenant (represented by a lion), composed of Bretons, Redguards, and Orcs; and the Ebonheart Pact (represented by a dragon), composed of Nords, Dunmer (Dark elf) and Argonians.
