The Elder Scrolls is one of the most beloved RPG series of all time, and now players can make their love for Tamriel multiplayer thanks to The Elder Scrolls Online. Set centuries before the events of Morrowind and Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls Online lets players pick sides in the war for the emperor’s throne. Nords, Khajiit, Bosmer, and every race in between can join one of three factions fighting for power and engage in quests, random events, and exploration of the massive open world with friends and strangers.
Though the game is an MMO, the developers have included plenty of content for fans of the single-player experience as well. The Elder Scrolls Online is about as immersive as an MMO can get, thanks to the series’ complex lore and worldbuilding. The game was met with mixed reviews, but the developer is working to continually address complaints including bug and difficulty levels. To address concerns about the price, The Elder Scrolls Online will be subscription-free as of March 2015—players can now explore the world of Tamriel for the price of the game and nothing more. The console version has been delayed until Spring of 2015.
