The Elder Scrolls Online is an upcoming MMORPG set in the world of Tamriel a thousand years before the events of Skyrim. It is developed by ZeniMax and published by Bethesda Softworks. The game has 9 races (10 including the Imperial Edition-exclusive Imperials), four classes with 3 diverse skill lines each, and three factions. PvP is faction-based, with opportunities for both smaller groups and larger ones to do their part in the war.

ESO does away with separate servers and all the related annoyances, and instead has just one “megaserver” per region (US and Europe) for PC and Mac gamers. Xbox One and PS4 owners will be getting separate megaservers.
