The Elder Scrolls Online Artwork Depicts Skyrim, Hammerfall, Elsewyr


It's the world of the Elder Scrolls like you've never seen before. Developed by Zenimax Online Studios instead of Bethesda, which developed all the previous Elder Scrolls games, the developers have put forth three new images—concept art, to be precise—of the massive online world they plan to open to the public in the not-too-distant future. 

And before you say anything, I know the world of Elder Scrolls is called Tamriel.

In any case, the newly revealed images depict the frozen land of Skyrim, tropical Elsewyr, and arid Hammerfall—three of the settings planned for development in The Elder Scrolls Online.

In the upcoming game, players will be able to join with one of three main factions—the Aldmeri Dominion, the Daggerfall Covenant, and the Ebonheart Pact—to fight over the land and do battle against the minions of the Daedric Prince Molag Bal. 

The Elder Scrolls Online is planned for a 2013 release on both the PC and Mac, making it one of the few MMOs apart from World of Warcraft to see a dual-platform release.
