Set 1,000 years before the events of Skyrim, the game lets players take part in quests together online, engage in PvP combat and explore the entire realm of Tamriel as they hunt daedric prince Molag Bal.
According to reports, the game has already been in development for five years at ZeniMax Online Studios.
It’s due for release on PC and Mac next year.
“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted,” said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online.
“It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
The Elder Scrolls Online will be the first multiplayer version for the series, whose series of games stretch back to 1994.
It isn’t yet known whether the game will feature a free-to-play or subscription-based pricing model.
Bethesda says that more information on The Elder Scrolls Online will be revealed “in the coming months”.
