The Elder Scrolls Online Rides into Launch

Game Director Matt Firor and the whole ESO team have today welcomed the gaming community to The Elder Scrolls Online's official launch, and we at Curse would like to invite everyone to check out The Elder Scrolls Online Wiki! Marking the occasion, a note from Firor himself:

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. - Matt

If you haven't looked into the game yet, you're in for a real treat! The Elder Scrolls Online is a much more social continuation of the beloved and richly fabricated universe which holds the continent of Tamriel and all the difficulties that arise in it. 

The game is set a millenium prior to the events of Skyrim, with the Daedric Prince Molag Bal appearing as the main antagonist as he attempts to conquer all of Tamriel. Players are able to explore the continent, and join one of three alliances warring over the throne of the Emperor of Tamriel.

Additionally, massive PvP battles allow you to fight for your alliance in heart-pumping battles against enemy armies of hundreds across the battlefields of Cyrodiil. How will your Elder Scrolls legacy play out online?

Head to the official TESO site for more details on the game and to join the fray. You'll find all the information you need to succeed at The Elder Scrolls Online Wiki at Gamepedia, including details on Factions, Races, Quests, Classes, Locations, Lore, Crafting, and more.  Head to, and enjoy the game!

In celebration of today's launch, The Elder Scrolls Online team has created an infographic chock full of facts and statistics. Take a look below:
