An Overview of The Elder Scrolls Online

In lieu of my normal weekly screenshot dissection, I’m excited to share an awesome new video that provides a general overview of the gameplay mechanics and design philosophies behind The Elder Scrolls Online. This video features gameplay and environments from ESO in glorious HD, while giving a general summary that introduces the game to new fans. I hope you all enjoy watching, and I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! What scene got you the most excited? What features of ESO do you think will help it stand out as a MMO and as an Elder Scrolls RPG? What do you hope to see or hear more about next from ZeniMax?
