'Be who you want to be'

Like past Elder Scrolls games, Elder Scrolls Online will feature a first-person viewpoint, in addition to your typical elements of character progression. This new video explains a bit how that process works, from leveling up your character in general to the customization of your skills, to your typical questlines like the Fighters or Mage's Guild.

I'm pretty excited to try ESO, especially with the addition of the classic FPS-like view of the series. It'll be interesting to see how the game fares with a subscription based model as well, and how it does on consoles.
