VIDEO GAMES: Elder Scrolls Online Cinematic Trailer

VIDEO GAMES: Elder Scrolls Online Cinematic Trailer

Great computer graphics on display here from Bethesda and ZeniMax Online Studios in their glorious cinematic trailer. Certainly wouldn't mind seeing a full-blown feature film rendered in this format. Maybe an animated Thor film?


Tamriel is at war. Three alliances -- the Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, and Ebonheart Pact -- square off for control of The Imperial City.

The time to vow your allegiance is swiftly approaching, as the official sign-up for The Elder Scrolls Online beta program begins today. If selected, you will be one of the first people to embark upon the newest Elder Scrolls adventure, and help us beta test The Elder Scrolls Online.

The vid looks good but I wonder what game play looks like. I'm more of a console gamer, although, I might give it a look.

And who says I want to keep my girlfriend?

That trailer was sweet!

I'm not huge into MMO's, hated WoW but I love the Elder Scrolls.

Why can't movie sequences be more like these cinematic CGI Trailer/intros... Still waiting for the day they finally make a God of War movie. They better include gruesome finishing moves and capture the sheer brutality and carnage in the action sequences; but then again it's all mostly up to the cinematography.
Oh and I signed up for the beta for this. It better not be some generic mmo with a crappy combat, loot...

Starcraft 2 heart of the swarm trailer was released earlier as well.

there's video online of gameplay. the game sounds awesome. I don't like mmo's but this one seems sweet. Plays like the previous games with skills being attained from doing things. and combat that is involved not just pressing a key.

I wish it was coming to consoles...

If it matches up to the console games in gameplay and freedom, I'll play it.

If only it was for consoles and didn't have a monthly subscription fee (I'm assuming it does?)

The only way to bring WoW or Skyrim to the big screen is animation in this caliber. Hollywood should recognize this and not the failure of Final Fantasy: The spirits within. That movie was very boring. Take note Hollywood, hire these talented animators and get some great writers to get the movie going.
