Bethesda and Zenimax Online Studios have announced that beta sign-ups are now open for The Elder Scrolls Online. If you want to get in on the action simply head on over to The Elder Scrolls Online webpage where you can put your name into the big beta-testing hat. If selected as a beta participant you will be granted early access and will according to Bethesda be amongst 'the first to experience this epic world'. It sounds like something every Elder Scrolls fan should be excited about.
Hold on though...are fans of the franchise excited about The Elder Scrolls Online? Since its announcement the game hasn't exactly been met with universal anticipation. Fans seems to be divided, with some welcoming this new addition to the Elder Scrolls family, and others wanting more of the single player RPGs that they know and love. Unfortunately, it's hard not to have doubts when you consider that many recently released MMOs have failed to meet expectations.
Maybe I'm being a tad cynical. After all, only time will tell if The Elder Scrolls Online will be a worthy addition to a superb franchise. For now let's take a look at this new trailer for the game; because if there's one thing MMOs do right, it's cinematic trailers.
