An MMORPG made by Zenimax Online Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, released on PC on April 4th 2014 and will release on PS4 and Xbox One in 2015.

It is based on the Elder Scrolls franchise, which is most well known for Skyrim, one of the best RPGs of all time. It has many of the same gameplay elements as Skyrim, such as crime, first-person combat, a huge world, and lots of quests to do. While not on the same level as Skyrim or Oblivion, it is definitely one of the best MMOs out at the moment.

The game received mostly positive reviews, and its endgame progression system has received a lot of flak. Thankfully, it's being overhauled soon.

A letdown. Is there anything else to say. Honestly it was sad everyone thought it was skyrim online but Todd Howard was probably high. Really disappointing. I hope Morrowind Online redeems Bethesda Studios
