Bethesda Softworks and Zenimax Studios have just announced that the beta signups have been opened for arguably one of the most anticipated MMO games in history, The Elder Scrolls Online. Interested fans just have to head on over to the official website for their chance to register. You will be expected to provide a variety of information including name, DOB, PC specs and past testing history.
?We?re really excited to get the game into players? hands,? said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. ?We receive invaluable feedback through the beta process, and that helps us ensure that the game will be one of the best online gaming experiences ever offered -- one worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.?
The Elder Scrolls Online is the first online adaptation of the award-winning Elder Scrolls franchise, a franchise that has roots dating as far back as 1994. The original titles attracted massive praise from both critics and players winning dozens of awards ever since the original release of Arena. The Elder Scrolls Online promises to deliver a unique, socially driven MMORPG experience using ZeniMax Online?s Megaserver technology.
Since the announcement of The Elder Scrolls Online it has already become one of the most anticipated MMO releases of our time winning awards from IGN, The Guardian, MMORPG.com and MPOGD.com.
Will The Elder Scrolls Online be able to surpass its Elder Scrolls predecessor? Skyrim sold over 10 million copies in the first month and is still played by thousands across the globe but as we've all seen before; previous franchise success does not guarantee success in the online space.
Does the thought of an online version of The Elder Scrolls get you foaming at the mouth? Well if it does we've got something that will leave you a complete mess; leaving you rocking backwards and forwards in the corner of your bedroom while you sing the lyrics of Dovahkiin. Our very own Kirk had the opportunity to interview Game Director Matt Firor and PvP Director Brian Wheeler, but that's not all. Mark McDonald also had the opportunity to get some hands on time with The Elder Scrolls Online; yes I hate him for it too, you can read the full preview in all its glory here.
