We’ve been waiting for this one, folks — ZeniMax Online Studios’ upcoming MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online, has an official PC and Mac release date of April 4, 2014. The announcement from publisher Bethesda Softworks was accompanied by a new gameplay trailer, below. The Elder Scrolls Online will launch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 two months later, in June 2014.
In the trailer, titled “War in Cyrodiil,” we get the chance to see The Elder Scrolls Online‘s huge PvP system in action, including spells, melee combat, and crossbows. We also get a small glimpse into the game’s plot: “…the Ruby Throne sits empty. Now is the time to strike.”
