  • Skyrim Vs. The Elder Scrolls Online Round 2, Windhelm Windhelmhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJqQMk1vjyU
    If you’re interested in how the locations from Skyrim look in The Elder Scrolls Online, this new video from IGN is well worth checking out. They take a side-by side look at Windhelm.
    Personally, the original version simply looks more grander and more full of character to me, but it’s easy to see that some of the changes, like larger areas, were made to better suit the needs of an MMORPG.

  • Experience Life as a Godless Killing Machine in Bear Simulator Bear Simulatorhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5rJk6tLRCw
    There are a lot of games out there that claim to be “like Skyrim” and frankly I just ignore them. They inevitably are not that very much like Skyrim. But this game claims to be “like a mini Skyrim but you’re a bear.” And I can’t ignore that.

    Bear Simulator by Farjay Studios has met its Kickstarter goal, so the chance of romping through the woods in first person as one of the number one threats to America is high.

    Bear Simulator will feature “exploring, eating fish and plants, striking down anything that dare stand before your might, increasing your stats, sleeping ...

  • Take a Fresh Look at Bruma in the Beyond Skyrim Mod Beyond Skyrimhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCRWN2Emgbw
    One of the things that seems to excite Skyrim modders the most is the idea of seeing other parts of Tamriel in Skyrim. That’s the button this Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil Bruma teaser pushes, and it pushes it hard.
    The Beyond Skyrim modders at DarkCreations intend to start with Bruma and piece-by-piece bring all of Cyrodiil into the game. The mod will feature new quests, creatures, and dungeons, and a storyline about Cyrodiil set at the time of Skyrim. From the description:
    “This is only a small first taste of the larger project Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil – The Seat of Sundered Kings, an ...
  • The Elder Scrolls Online Updates Cause Mod Controversy Foundry Tactical CombatIn advance of the game’s imminent release, The Elder Scrolls Online team announced a number of new updates to the game. Most of these fix pesky bugs or improve balancing or usability. But there’s one that might nerf certain mods.
    A new version of the Elder Scrolls Online API takes away the ability to see information about what others are doing to your character, such as what spells they are casting.
    The move appears to be at least in part a fairness issue, because it is possible players with UI mods could gain an advantage by viewing extra info about what the ...
  • Skyrim Versus The Elder Scrolls Online Skyrim Vs. The Elder Scrolls OnlineIGN has an intriguing article comparing the Skyrim from Skyrim to the Skyrim from The Elder Scrolls Online. As you can see in the above image, the same locations tend to look a lot less grandiose.
    IGN’s Leif Johnson had a lot of favorable things to say about how The Elder Scrolls Online experience invoked the feeling of earlier Elder Scrolls games, but wrote that even its best moments “Elder Scrolls Online only makes me homesick.”
    “My journeys presented an unintended consequence–they made me want to boot up Skyrim to see the differences. Several hours in ESO can make you forget how vast ...
  • Five Million People Have Registered for the The Elder Scrolls Online Beta The Elder Scrolls Online EmperorThe Elder Scrolls Online Director Matt Firor released a new letter today thanking players on the eve of this weekend’s final PC/Mac beta stress test.

    “If you’re reading this, you’re probably one of the 5 million people that have registered for the ESO beta, and likely participated in one of our large beta tests. That’s a wonderfully large number of people who have become part of our ESO community, and ...
  • Put Real-Life Elder Scrolls Books on Your Shelf With The Hero’s Guides to TESO Hero's Guide to The Elder Scrolls Online
    As a bibliophile or, if you want to put it more bro-tastically, bookworm, I’ve spent hours just reading the books in the Elder Scrolls games. And if you’re like me, I’m sure you’ll understand why I have never been more excited for a piece of Elder Scrolls merchandise than for this upcoming set, The Hero’s Guides to The Elder Scrolls Online.
    The set contains three real-life books filled with Elder Scrolls illustrations and lore. Even if you don’t give a damn about the MMORPG, if you love the lore these would be gorgeous to have for a shelf.

    The three books included ...
