Review in Progress: The Elder Scrolls Online (Early-Access and Launch) photo
Review in Progress: The Elder Scrolls Online (Early-Access and Launch)

[We'll be reviewing The Elder Scrolls Online over an extended period of time. For more details, check out our new Reviews in Progress program.]

I've been hard at work playing Elder Scrolls Online this week (you can check out our initial impressions here), and now my low-level Imperial Dragonknight is sitting at a very formidable level 20. I've completed many dungeons, traveled to a heap of locations, and I've seen a ton of story-related quests.

So should you jump into Tamriel and pony up for the hefty $15 subscription fee? Well, it's complicated.

Over 5 million people registered for the Elder Scrolls Online beta photo
Over 5 million people registered for the Elder Scrolls Online beta

The Elder Scrolls Online is officially available today for the masses on the PC and Mac. To celebrate, Bethesda has released another badass cinematic trailer, titled The Siege.

Along with this trailer comes a neat little infographic Bethesda put together. Highlights include that 5 million people registered for the ESO beta, there's over 40 million weapon variations, there's so many character variations that the number can't even fit on the infographic, and that it would take 32 hours to read the over 2,000 books in the game.

Wondering how ESO is? Check out our first 24 hours with the game, and check back frequently as we'll have ongoing coverage of the game up until we do the full on scored review.

In many ways ZeniMax is fighting an uphill battle with Elder Scrolls Online. In an era increasingly filled with free-to-play MMOs, subscription-based games are a tougher sell. Then you have the fact that Bethesda isn't involved in any capacity, and that this is ZeniMax's first ever MMO.

Yes, there are many things going against The Elder Scrolls Online, but based on my time with the live environment, it's still a serviceable game -- provided you're highly accustomed to the genre.

Elder Scrolls Online may take 150 hours to get max level

If you play as many MMOs as I do, one of the first questions you'll probably have is "what is the maximum level cap, and how long does it take to reach it?" Well with The Elder Scrolls Online, we may have an answer. According...

You must watch this Elder Scrolls Online video right now

Yes, it's a cinematic, but it's one hell of an impressive cinematic. Fan or not, you can't help but get excited for The Elder Scrolls Online after watching this eight minute long movie. Makes you really wish for an actual Elder Scrolls animated movie like this. At the very least, we may be getting more short movies like this based on how this one ends.

The Elder Scrolls Online will be out on April 4 for Windows and OS X, and in June for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Here's Max to cap off the week of videogame news. He claims his laptop battery is almost out of juice but I think he just wanted to get the weekend started early. I'd have done the same thing.

The new Thief and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, two games that have experienced their fair share of criticism from fans of those properties, got the preview treatment. We also saw trailers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Elder Scrolls Online's packed voice cast, and Jazzpunk. That last one will rank among the year's best game trailers, mark my words. Whoa.

More than anything, I'm pleased to hear that Max agrees with me about the stupidity of the name "The Golf Club." Take that, Steven! And bring your puns with you.

The Elder Scrolls Online's voice cast sounds expensive

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate great voice work and after seeing the lineup for The Elder Scrolls Online, I don't think the game will disappoint in that regard. But going for big-name, recognizable talent runs the risk of ...

Turns out blacksmithing is tougher than in Skyrim

I don't think that anyone really thought that Skyrim provided an accurate depiction of a blacksmith's trade. I mean, those dudes have to hit stuff for a really long time. It looks too tedious to be fun. Unless they have...
