Environment & Lore
Elder Scrols Online (ESO or TESO for short) is a game by Bethesda
Softworks, the makers of the long history of Elder Scrolls games
(Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim).
When Bethesda set out to create ESO, they wanted to create a
game that combined the massive, story-driven, explorable worlds
that all of their previous games introduced players to, and combine
those into an MMORPG.
The Elder Scrolls Online takes place 1000 years before the
Skyrim story, but all of the history found in all of the prior
Elder Scrolls games can be found in ESO.
One of the best parts of Elder Scrolls Online is the fact
that all of Tamriel will be
explorable--something never seen in any of the prior Elder Scrolls
The art and environments found in ESO are distinct and
immediately recognizable as being a part of The Elder Scrolls
