The Elder Scrolls Online Next Year

Game Informer's June 2012 Cover Reveal shows the next issue of the magazine will offer the official unveiling of The Elder Scrolls Online, finally fulfilling long-time speculation that Bethesda would one day create an MMO based on their popular RPG series. They say the game will come to Windows and OS X next year, and that a teaser trailer a screenshot will be posted tomorrow. Here's what they reveal so far:

Developed by the team at Zenimax Online Studios, The Elder Scrolls Online merges the unmatched exploration of rich worlds that the franchise is known for with the scale and social aspects of a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Players will discover an entirely new chapter of Elder Scrolls history in this ambitious world, set a millennium before the events of Skyrim as the daedric prince Molag Bal tries to pull all of Tamriel into his demonic realm.

"It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years," said game director and MMO veteran Matt Firor, whose previous work includes Mythic's well-received Dark Age of Camelot. "The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise."

An in-depth look at everything from solo questing to public dungeons awaits in our enormous June cover story as well as a peek at the player-driven PvP conflict that pits the three player factions against each other in open-world warfare over the province of Cyrodiil and the Emperor's throne itself.

On the up shot, if the map on the cover of Game Informer is anything to go by, you're looking at around 50% of the continent (judging from how big Morrowind is).

While the art direction for Skyrim constantly makes me stop and just... admire shit... (Blackreach was another of those moments, but whenever the weather clears some and you get some awesome vistas it's worth stopping for a moment and looking), I do miss Morrowind and it's bizarre, alien landscape. The marshes, the blight, the canals of Vivec, the crazy-ass mushrooms on the eastern side of the island... it was great stuff. In Skyrim we ride horses and carts between cities. In Morrowind we rode silt striders and blimps and shit. And then there was the solar eclipse...
