Elder Scrolls MMO.


From the get-go of the whole MMO explosion, I had never been that interested, mainly due to games like Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls. Oh sure,with a multiplayer game you could go online and yak-yak with your buddies and whatnot, but without the beauty and detail (not to mention the thoroughly imagined world and history) of Tamriel. When there was an online game that could compare to the likes of Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim, I’d gladly plonk down my $15 a month (or whatever they’re charging now).

Well guess what, True Believers? According to Tom’s Guide, an Elder Scrolls MMO is about to happen. As in this year. As in, we’ll see it at E3 and Quakecon.

Bethesda and their pulbishing arm ZeniMax are not forthcoming on the subject, but the rumor has been persistent for some time, mainly due to positions the studios have been hiring as of late. While many had speculated a Fallout MMO was more imminent — due to Bethesda re-acquiring rights to such a venture due to Interplay (the originator of the series)’s lack of activity — this apparently is not (for now, at least) to be. And I couldn’t be happier.

For the time being, I reckon I’ll sit tight, and try not to squeal like a Korean schoolgirl.
