Bethesda announced on their Facebook page that The Elder Scrolls Online will be rated M for Mature. The statement from Bethesda stated the company disagree with the ESRB's rating, but they also "do not plan to challenge" it. They have no plans on changing anything to get down to the T rating they were hoping for either, but did note they have to start age gating stuff online so kids will never be able to look at anything ESO related as kids have to tell the truth about their age online.
That's not all! Bethesda released this new eight-minute long look detailing group play. Here we see a couple of players take on a rock monster, find other players, and a whole bunch of other cool things you Elder Scrolls nerds will dig.
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.
