Elder Scrolls Online: Explore Cyrodill, Hammerfell, Black Marsh, Elsewweyr, Valenwood

If you ever played a MMO, you know that the word massive often also stands for a massive world that you can explore. In Elder Scrolls Online you will be able to explore the entire Tamriel continent.

MMO To Include Valenwood, Elsweyr and Summerset Isles?

Some new areas that you have never visited in any Elder Scrolls game before are Valenwood, Elsweyr and Summerset Isles. It is very possible that Bethesda will add all of those areas to the MMO

If you are wondering what games feature the other provinces: (Source)

  • High Rock (appeared in The Elder Scrolls II Daggerfall)
  • Hammerfell (original name was Volenfull, The Elder Scrolls II Daggerfall)
  • Black Marsh (The Elder Scrolls: Arena)

 Moving Across Tamriel: With Striders?

As you know it from most MMO’s, there will be ways to move from one place to another like gatekeepers. In Elder Scrolls Online we would like to see striders again – the big creatures with the long legs standing around in various towns in Morrowind.

Elder Scrolls Online Might Be Years Away

As we underlined in our feature article about Elder Scrolls 5 , Bethesda worked for 4 years on Elder Scrolls Oblivion and 5 years on Skyrim.

Companies new to MMO development often underestimate how much work a MMO truly is and it is not uncommon for MMO’s to be delayed or undergo extensive beta tests.The good news is that they already announced the game and showed off various screenshots 

Update: Apparently, the games has been in development since 2007. We therefore believe a 2013 release date is very possible, making it 6 years and the longest development cycle for a TES game.
