Launch and new trailer in the elder scrolls online

Read a note from Game Director Matt Firor and watch the latest in our series of cinematic trailers to celebrate launch day.

We’re excited to welcome you to The Elder Scrolls Online’s official launch. To mark the occasion, we’d like to share a message from Matt Firor, Game Director on ESO:

Welcome to April 4, 2014! Today’s worldwide release of The Elder Scrolls Online for PC and Mac  is a landmark day for our many fans and all of us here at ZeniMax Online Studios.  I am incredibly proud of the team that has been working hard to bring Tamriel to life online and am extremely grateful for everyone in the ever-growing ESO community. Making a AAA online RPG with the scope and scale of The Elder Scrolls Online is a daunting development effort,  and we couldn’t have done it without our talented team and the most supportive fans in the world. Thanks for helping us reach this day.

Development doesn’t stop here. Soon we’ll be unveiling Craglorn, our first Veteran-level, end-game zone tailored for small and large groups which offers lots more hours of gameplay and new areas to explore– and we’ll continue to add new systems and exciting content regularly. And of course, we are still hard-at-work on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game as well. I sincerely hope everyone has as much fun playing the game as we had making it. You are in for a thrilling journey, and as this is the first Elder Scrolls game to go online, we hope you share the fun by making friends — whether you’re joining groups and guilds or fighting hundreds of enemy players on the battlefield.  We’ll definitely be out there with you – see you in Tamriel! And stay tuned for all the new and exciting things we’ll have to share with you in the coming weeks and months. This is only the beginning.

Get ready to start your adventure off right by watching “The Siege,” a new chapter in our cinematic series. Welcome to Tamriel!

We’re looking forward to hearing about your experiences in ESO. Share your videos, livestreams, screenshots, and favorite moments with us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Tumblr.
