If you fancy some online living in the realm of The Elder Scrolls Online then now might be a good time to slap your name down as Bethesda have begun beta sign-ups, as they launch a new trailer.

The sign-up form includes a few optional sections that, if filled in, "significantly increase your chances of being selected". They ask what other MMOs you've played, and what mechanics you like.

Its shameless marketing, but one you'll happily whore yourself out to if you'd like a greater shot at being selected for beta participation. They also require a DxDiag report.

The new trailer is purely cinematic and gives a glimpse of the conflict between the three warring factions in Tamriel; Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, and Ebonheart Pact. Check out the official website to sign-up for the beta.

Even though I believe that Elder Scrolls MMO is a bad idea, I'm still willing to give it a try. Who knows, maybe it turns out to be good.

I always liked the loneliness of the Elder Scrolls games. Seems like an MMO version would mess that up. Could still be enjoyable if you didn't think of it as ES.

Hell, WoW was based on an RTS, so anything is possible.

It just seems too much of ANOTHER MMO so far. The same old thing.

"I always liked the loneliness of the Elder Scrolls games."

same here enough mmos around skyrim is having a good alone time game when i want to isolate myself in some roleplaying lol

even so tho this mmo will have a considereble community dispite the fact that the entire modding community will be left out because it being an mmo the fame of the elder scrolls is big might have a chance...

I simply don't enjoy MMO's that much and I really don't like the idea of simplifying the game any further than what has happened with Oblivion and Skyrim release.
TES grandeur is having this huge world to explore by yourself without having to listen to a lot of stupid comments...
