Product Description

Platform: PC Download | Edition: Imperial

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 Good potential April 11, 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Imperial|Verified Purchase
This is a review of the physical Imperial Edition of the game. I'm hoping to hit as many points as possible, answering the questions I typically ask for myself before wading into a new game. Like any MMO review this will only be applicable for a short while, as games evolve and change. No online game really hits its stride until its first major expansion.

*Imperial Edition Content*

The physical content of the Imperial Edition is decent.

When the box arrived, I was impressed with the size. The unboxing process is a lot of fun, just watch the official unboxing video to see what I mean. There's a lot of content very well packaged.

I mainly ordered the Imperial Edition for the Improved Emperor's Guide to Tamriel, and the book is a pleasure to read through. The pictures and story are high quality and the book feels solid and substantial to hold and read. I'll be spending quite a bit of time pouring through it in the weeks to come.

The Molag Bal Statue is plastic, so take it for what it's worth. Assembling it wasn't difficult, and while it's not the sturdiest statue ever made, it held together well. Personally, I don't think I'd want to display a foot tall Daedric Prince in my home. I just don't think it's a pretty statue and I don't want to explain to guests why I have a lizard-devil-demon on the shelf. For what it is however, it's well designed. I liked the Skyrim sculpt much more, but again that's personal preference.

The map I found to be an inexcusable failure. It's a poster print of Tamriel, with only the major nations' names scribbled across their general location. It's of no use for locating anything, it's not attractive enough to display and it adds nothing to the Elder Scrolls Lore.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing MMO April 7, 2014
By Nucer
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Imperial|Verified Purchase
To start, I have been playing MMO's for quite some time. My favorites have been SWG (best MMO to date pre-cu), FFXI, and WoW (up until WoTLK). If you're also familiar with MMO's this will give you an idea in what I look for in the games I play.

Before I get into the game, I want to address the very vocal complaints that I've been seeing in these reviews.

1. $15.00 monthly fee. - This has been the trend since MMO's began. It was just recently these failing MMO's brought the "Free to Play" method to salvage what little they had left. I personally think this ruins the experience and floods the zones with kids and people that destroy the MMO experience(don't believe me? Check out Neverwinter). Secondly, this fee brings to the game server stability, very large content updates, and more frequent bug fixes; which actually leads me into my second point.

2. Initial Bugs - Have you people never played an MMO before? This has been bliss compared with some of the other previous MMO launches. FFXIV was terrible and Vanilla WoW was aweful. From an IT persepective these things take time. It is very expensive and time consuming to iron out every single bug. If you think an MMO will ever be launched with no bugs, I have an island to sell you.

3. Comparing this game to Skyrim - This is an MMO first with Elder Scrolls second. Not Elder Scrolls first with MMO second. Both have their own unique qualities. I loved Skyrim, but I was also not disillusioned with the notion that this game would be Skyrim with thousands of other people. That would be too great a risk for investors to make. They know this MMO model works so they played it a little safe.

Ok now that I addressed those points, I would like to review the game so far:

Combat - Absolutely awesome.

Lets face the reality, gaming and especially MMOs have developed a extremely poisnous community over the past several years. In fact it has never been worse on average in my opinion at this current point in history.
Many MMO players are pissed off, and they are pissed off at being pissed off, for many reasons stretching from not playing like them, to liking a different game, to having a different opinion.
Those same venomous people are sending unending hate towards this game. Some writers in the MMO/gaming press have predicted Elder Scrolls Online failure, simple because it has a subscription and not for game reasons. While giving the subscription model Wildstar will use a free pass - that isn't very professional.

Did you know there are probably game studios/publishers that pay people to go on other gaming forums and write reviews on websites, just to spread hate about certain titles? It's true (Probably also true for positive reviews, but I'm a fantasy author/life long gamer, my review is just a honest opinion - not a editor though - I pay someone to make sense of my bad Engrish). The MMO community on average, and it's hate filled nature, make it all too easy to anger the villagers, so they can ready their pickforks and torches. On quest to kill any monster that is the flavor of the month.

So it's best to ignore it all the hate and unprofessionalism. Then focus on what you personally like or don't like for yourself. The worst that happens is you spend as much time as you would in large single player game like Skyrim and get your money's worth and unsub.

Does that mean negative comments and concerns about a game, should be written off? No.
I have put over 200 hours into the Beta, and have been playing the game since the five day headstart.
