The Elder Scrolls: Online is an upcoming epic MMO from ZeniMax Online Studios, which will be the first Elder Scrolls game to allow players to explore the series' universe with others. Like previous Elder Scrolls games, The Elder Scrolls: Online will be set on the world of Nirn. Unlike previous games, it will feature online, mulitplayer action.
During the Second Era, about 1000 years before the events in Skyrim, Tamriel descended into a four-way war. In an attempt to conquer the continent, the Imperials – natives to the province of Cyrodiil – made a deal with the Daedric prince Molag Bal. At the beginning of the game, players will join one of three factions that not only oppose the Imperials and Molag Bal's undead army, but will also battle one another for the imperial throne. Three different alliances. Three different philosophies. Three different ways to approach the game. Which will you choose?
