Fans waiting for the highly-anticipated Elder Scrolls Online have today been treated to a brand new, eight-minute long cinematic trailer for the massively multiplayer online roleplayer. The video has been released by publishers Bethesda in celebration of the announcement of The Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition - the premium collectors edition. The clip features heroes previously introduced to us by Bethesda as they do battle against a series of bad-guys and one frightening-looking, all-powerful boss in scenes of over-the-top action. Viewers catch a glimpse of new fighting skills and spells while the continent of Tamriel looks as expansive as ever, with horses again set to serve as a main source of transport. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ej6R7YEGmO0 ESO is set a millennium before the events of the popular, best-selling Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and some 800 years before predecessors Morrowind and Oblivion. The menacing Daedric Prince Molag Bal stars as the main antagonist as he schemes to pull all of Tamriel into his realm of Coldharbour. ESO is set for release on Microsoft Windows and OS X on April 4 and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One two months later, at some point in June. What did you think of the new cinematic trailer?
