The Elder Scrolls Online, the MMO spin-off from Bethesda's best-selling critically acclaimed RPG saga, has long been in development for PC. Now the publisher has confirmed that the game will be coming to next generation consoles as well, when it launches next year.
Elder Scrolls Online takes place a full 1000 years before Skyrim, and plunges hundreds of players into the world of Tamriel as the Daedric Prince Molag Bal plots to rule the land. You'll undertake quests, of course, as well as crafting items, catching fish and generally exploring and meeting people.
There will be three factions to join, each with their own questlines. The Aldmeri Dominion contains the Altmer, Bosmer, and Khajiit races; Bretons, Redguards, and Orcs make up the Daggerfall Covenant while the Ebonheart Pact is the one to choose if you want to rub shoulders with the Dunmer, Nords, and Argonians.
The Elder Scrolls Online is currently set for release in Spring 2014
