The sky is falling in this Elder Scrolls Online trailer

TESO imperial city

The Elder Scrolls Online seems to be giving us enough information on a regular basis to build up speed on that hype train. I’m still not sure about the monthly subscription plus purchasing the game set-up. I don’t like that part. But, with the game looking this fantastic, I may need to give it a whirl, at least for a month or two. Or ten.

Here is the brand new cinematic trailer:

For the non-video viewing among you, it’s purely a cinematic, no gameplay. However, we do see a variety of races and classes engaging in an enormous battle complete with massive amounts of destruction. There are some monstrous creatures to fight, plenty of impressive abilities and general prettiness. It’s not all battle, though – we do get some nice environmental shots as well. The world seems is huge, and rather detailed, too.

It really is looking like a gorgeous game – let’s hope there isn’t the same need for modding with this as there was for Skyrim. It appears that Bethesda has really upped its game on graphics for this Elder Scrolls iteration.

Can’t wait for release? You can get early access by pre-ordering the game. This means you get five days early access, as well as the ability to play any race in any alliance. If you’re really keen on this game, it seems like a worthwhile investment. Who wouldn’t want a head start of five days?

You know TESO is coming to PC and Mac in April and PS4 and Xbox One in June. Consoles gamers will be on one set of servers, while the rest will be on another. This means Mac and PC users can play together. Does this mean Mac users are finally part of the master race?
