The Elder Scrolls Online Coming April 4
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

ZeniMax Online Studios has announced an April 4 release date for the upcoming MMO adaptation of Bethesda's Elder Scrolls universe. To celebrate the The Elder Scrolls Online announcement the company also rolled out a new trailer and a message from Game Director Matt Firor.

Game development is coming along very well. We completed major systems development, and are focusing on making this the Elder Scrolls game you expect: polishing the hundreds and hundreds of hours of content, making combat even more fun and responsive, fixing quest issues, and much, much more. In fact, we plan on spending the next few months before launch reacting to the latest feedback from internal and external testers and gameplay data we have collected.

As some of you know, weve been in beta testing for about a year now, leading up to our most recent test in late November where we had over 300,000 people in the game over a 48 hour period. Weve had approximately 4 million people sign up for beta and that number continues to grow. We hope that just about every one of you who have signed up for beta will get an invitation to play sometime between now and the weeks before launch. These tests are very important, not only for gameplay feedback, but also to test our infrastructure. Beta tests can sometimes be a little rough when we are testing some systems for the first time with large numbers of players. So thank you to all who have participated for your understanding and support. It is very much appreciated.

Worldwide demand for The Elder Scrolls Online is extraordinarily high. This means we need to doa staggered rollout of the different versions of the game to spread out the initial service load and ensure an enjoyable, smooth gameplay experience. It is not only a game we are launching it is a large online service as well, and our number one priority is to ensure a trouble-free, stable rollout for everyone.

The Elder Scrolls Online will launch for Mac and Windows PCs on April 4, while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will go live in June.
