Leaked gameplay footage of ZeniMax Online Studios’ upcoming MMO The Elder Scrolls Online has made its way online. Check out the latest screenshots taken from the gameplay video.
A couple of things stand out: The character creation interface, and a starting point, wherein the main character was saved from drowning. There isn’t much to tell gameplay or combat wise, save for the lone rat the player discovers and inevitably slaughtered.
Set in the continent of Tamriel, The Elder Scrolls Online focuses on three factions composed of various classes and races fighting for supremacy of the throne of the emperor. Along with customizing one’s character and class, you can also choose from numerous skill trees and choose from a wide range of equipment and loot.
The Elder Scrolls Online will feature many unique quests, emphasizing plot and exploration over rote level grinding, and is set to release on PC in 2013.
