To kick off the beta launch of their much-anticipated Elder Scrolls MMO, Bethesda Softworks has released a wicked new cinematic trailer for the game.
Check out our review of The Elder Scrolls Online.
When we first caught word that Bethesda and Zenimax were working on an Elder Scrolls MMO, we got pretty excited – but this trailer takes out excitement to a whole new level.
Sure, it doesn’t show any actual gameplay footage, but the cinematics are so ridiculous that we couldn’t help but feel giddy when beta signups were announced at the end. It plays out like a Peter Jackson flick, but with even crazier action sequences and far fewer beards. But don’t be fooled, it’s not all style and no substance. The clip’s directors did a fantastic job of showing off key characters and setting up the main conflict in ESO — the fight for control of Cyrodiil. Give it a watch, you won’t be disappointed.
