The rather stylishly spartan cover spread.
The rather stylishly spartan cover spread.

It's been rumored for a while, and Game Informer has finally confirmed it via their new cover: The next chapter in Bethesda'sElder Scrolls franchise will be a MMORPG.

The Elder Scrolls Online is currently in development at Zenimax Online Studios, and is designed to let players explore the full breadth of the world of Tamriel, "from Elsweyr to Skyrim and everywhere in between."

The Game Informer cover story will cover single-player quests, public dungeons, and even a player-driven PvP element that features three warring factions all vying for the province of Cyrodiil and the Emperor's throne. Additionally, a short teaser trailer is expected to launch tomorrow.

The Elder Scrolls Online is scheduled for a 2013 release on both PC and Mac platforms.

I bet this one will be different from all the other MMOs, right?

After seeing how crazy some of the PC mods are getting & the loot in Skyrim being rather lackluster most of the time, I can't see this being a great idea over an mmo in some other Bethesda franchise with more possibilities.

god dammit, fucking hate this news, part of the appeal for me of the other games is how skyrim was big like an mmo, but was free to play,

then again no words on the pricing, so maybe it will be freemium, or monthly or guild wars free

I love people saying it's going to be broken. They have been working on it since before Oblivion was released. If there is any game that will make me go back to MMOs it will probably be this one.

To be honest, this announcement isn't getting the response that I had anticipated. Upon hearing the announcement, I thought that it would be nothing but "OMG PUT IT IN MY BODY". Apparently I was mistaken.

And I will join the ranks of people saying "Good for them, but this game isn't for me". I wonder if it'll be more like an Elder Scrolls game or like an MMO? I'm at least interested to hear more.

Good lord. How many months after release will this take to become playable, they can't even get singleplayer down.

Wow people, have a little faith in Bethesda. Normally I would avoid an MMO like the plague, but I'm certainly interested to see where this goes. Just because it's an MMO doesn't mean it has to be terrible.

An MMO misses the very point of what the Elder Scrolls is about.

@President_Barackbar: Given that's it's not Bethesda Game Studios and is only a Bethesda property being done by a Zenimax dev it doesn't instill a lot of confidence.

Odd choice. Suppose shall have to wait and see, though given how broken all the RPG systems have been in Elder Scrolls to date (And I suppose Fallout 3 aswell). I'm dubious about an MMO on the mechanics side.

Just like all shooters have to chase the COD money, all RPGS must chase the WOW money. Activitsions success is ruining gaming.

@matthias2437: So time spent in development is indicative of the quality of the final product? Hrm. Duke says hi.

I'd rather a single player version of the entirety of Tamriel. MMOs are almost exclusively shit.

Duh, now I´m gonna have to play an MMO...

maybe there´s a single player mode? Like a "don´t pay a monthly fee cause you´re never gonna team up with anybody anyway" - mode?
