Bethesda has today made a sudden announcement, confirming the years-long rumors of an Elder Scrolls MMO. Yes, The Elder Scrolls Online is an actual thing!

Developed for PC and Mac, details are due in the June issue of Game Informer. Matt Firor is the lead developer with Zenimax Online Studios, and the team is committed to making "the best MMO ever made -- and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise."

So far, we know the game will include three factions engaged in a war for the Emperor's throne. It's set a millennium before Skyrim and revolves around the activities of a Daedric prince, Molag Bal. He plans to pull Tamriel into his Hellish province, so he's not very nice. 

Well ... holy shit.
