One of the biggest fantasy role-playing series of all time may be about to get a whole lot bigger. Tom's Guide has reported that sources close to Bethesda have leaked details regarding an Elder Scrolls MMO project currently in the works. 

A surprising amount of information comes along with the leak, including that the game will take place hundreds of years prior to the events of any game previously released in the franchise. Players will be able to join one of three factions, represented by animals including a lion, a dragon and some bird of prey. A formal announcement of the game is expected to arrive this May.

Not all that surprising a revelation. Rumors have been circulating for some time regarding Bethesda taking the leap into massively multiplayer gaming and Elder Scrolls is the most logical franchise for it, considering the legal wrangling only recently resolved between Interplay and Bethesda over a potential Fallout MMO. That said, huge news for fans of the series who are no doubt drowning in puddles of saliva over the prospect.

Surprise! Elder Scrolls Online is dropping the fee for existing subscribers, console version dated

When I reviewed The Elder Scrolls Online back at launch I thought it had potential, but not enough to keep people paying for subscription time. Plenty of MMOs have enjoyed a subscription-based model, and games like ...more
