Product Description

The Elder Scrolls Online is the latest chapter of the award-winning franchise – and will bring the legendary experience online for the first time. Whether you play with your friends or adventure alone, the game’s innovative combat system allows you to focus on action and tactics, not the UI. Use any weapon or armor at any time and customize your abilities to play the way you want as you uncover the mysteries of Tamriel and seek heroic quests on your own terms. Explore the far reaches of Skyrim, the mysterious lands of Morrowind, the sprawling metropolis of Daggerfall and beyond. The choices you make, from the alliance you join to the battles you fight, will shape your destiny and the world of Tamriel.

The Elder Scrolls Online is set roughly 1,000 years before the events in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the coming of the Dragonborn, and just before the rise of Tiber Septim, the first Emperor of Tamriel. Three Alliances have emerged across the continent, each struggling for supremacy over the land. As these great powers battle one another for control of the Imperial City – and with it all of Tamriel – darker forces are moving to destroy the world.


  • The Elder Scrolls. Online.
    After 20 years of best-selling, award-winning fantasy role-playing games, the Elder Scrolls series goes online. Experience this epic adventure on your own or together with your friends, guild mates, and thousands of alliance members. Explore dangerous caves and dungeons, embark upon adventurous quests across Tamriel, and engage in massive player versus player battles, where the victors reap the spoils of war.
  • Play the Way You Like
    With an enhanced Elder Scrolls combat system, engage in real-time targeting and strategic attacks and blocks. Use any weapon or wear any armor at any time, no matter what type of character you play and develop your own style with deep character customization and abilities.
  • A Connected Game World
    With ESO’s Megaserver technology you no longer choose a server, but instead play in one connected world. The game automatically places you with friends, guild mates, people you’ve encountered before, and other like-minded players. Simply jump in and begin your adventure.
  • Your Quest to Save Tamriel
    A stolen soul. An undead army rising. A quest to recover that which is uniquely yours. Explore the hidden secrets of Tamriel at your own pace using the game’s compass to guide you to areas of interest. Save the world from the evil machinations of the Daedric Prince Molag Bal and his henchman, the first necromancer, the Prince of Worms, Mannimarco.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a typical elder scrolls game.... April 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of the past elder scrolls games. I've played them all and fell completely in love. This game holds the elder scrolls name, but that is where the similarities end. Don't get me wrong. I'm not dissing the game. Its a good game. I'm just being honest. So many reviewers on other websites and youtube channels dance around the differences, not really telling you what they are. If you want a elder scrolls experience, this is not the game for you. However, it's not your typical MMO either, and is a little more fun than most.

Lets talk about some of the differences between elder scrolls and this game:

The combat UI: The health, Mana, and Stamina bars are the same as they were in Skyrim; however the rest of the combat UI just doesn't feel quite right, it doesn't feel as smooth when hacking and slashing as it did in Skyrim, and it holds a little more of a typical MMO type combat, similar to the KOTOR online combat. This is especially true with the archery, where as in Skyrim and Oblivion archery was realistic and a little challenging to master, In ESO you basically just draw back, point it in the enemies general direction, let loose and the arrow will simply find its mark.

The graphics: The graphics differ alot from Skyrim, but they are not bad. The character graphics are good, you can tell little things and aspects of your character, very clear and crisp coloring. However I feel like the graphics slipped a little from the realism of Skyrim into the un-realism of some other MMO's. It is only slightly though, they luckily don't even come close to the cheesy WoW graphics. This also depends on what graphical setting you run your PC on.

The questing system: The questing system itsef is actually really impressive.

As you can see from the comments, this game is polarizing. People either love it or hate it. Here are my cons and pros. (Cons first since you'll likely make your decision based on those).

Bugs. There are some annoying bugs. I've played from launch and never experienced a game-ending bug (e.g. getting dropped to the desktop, or worse). I have had to log out and log back in. Does that break the mood? Of course, but it hasn't been horrible.

Weird combo of MMO and solo play. Some quests can only be done solo. If you try to do them in a group you will end up in separate instances. I guess that is a game design choice - your character is supposed to be special, you must do some things alone. It is a somewhat odd decision and makes things hard if you are planning on playing with a spouse or friend.

Bag space. There is no limit on the number of skills your character can train. But, bag space is ridiculously low and very expensive to increase. So, while you run around you may find resource nodes but may elect to not pick them up because of lack of space. This situation is exacerbated by having a shared bank account across all your characters. It sounds like a great idea -- any character can access anything in the bank at any time; the result however is chronic lack of space.

Bots. There are a lot of bots and gold sellers. The company is working on that and the number has gone down but they are still an annoyance.

Add ons. The game is simply not as much fun if you play it without add ons. The interface is extremely sparse and it is hard to keep track of things. If you want everything in one place (which seems reasonable) you will be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Zenimax Lacks A Customer Service Ethic April 25, 2014
I purchased this game on the developer's main website. Boy do I regret that. Amazon has a formal policy of "no refunds" for digital purchases. However, if you're a good customer and can demonstrate product misrepresentation or unplayability due to bugs or developer misfeasance, Amazon can, at times, be quite forgiving.

Misfeasance is the relevant word here, folks. This game was released with bugs, bugs, bugs! After entering a castle, I found myself perpetually "falling" with only a blue, bottomless sky below me. There was no console to type any commands. Restarting, rebooting, reinstalling did nothing. For reasons that escape me, I later logged in to a console and submitted a ticket. TWENTY-FOUR HOURS later, I received a response telling me to type /stuck, which would "kill" me and return me to a 'bind' point. What they didn't tell me is that I'd suffer damage on equipment. I petitioned asking that I be compensated for the damage caused by this bug, no more, no less.

While awaiting a response, I examined the community more closely. The community is not cohesive. Chat was mostly a warzone of people flaming each other while legitimate questions and group requests went unanswered. Every 15 minutes or so, another gold farmer would emerge to spam us senseless in chat (and three times in private chat). People talked about having "first" accounts banned on assumption that they were gold farmers, when they weren't. Not very encouraging.

I also noticed, by way of gameplay review, that ESO lacked a general "wow" factor that compelled me to play EVERY Elder Scrolls game since the early 1990s. When I got to my first dungeon, I was 100% locked out by stationary gold farmers.

1.0 out of 5 stars why no single player?
I would give this game five stars but there is no single-player at all. Skyrim was the best game ever but Bethesda forgot to put a campaign in which is a massive loss.
