"Not many specifics are available yet, but according to Game Informer you'll be able to play as one of three factions, take part in open-world player versus player combat in the province of Cyrodiil and vie for control of the throne of the Emperor."
It occurs to me, that a thousand years in the past would likely mean that Elsweyr was swampland, wasn't it? If I remember TES lore...
Anyway, personally, I expect this will fail. I can see it turning out the same way SWTOR did. Just because you can make a good single player RPG doesn't mean you can make a good MMORPG. I guess we will be able to judge more accurately when there's actually some information on it. I'd love for them to prove me wrong, but I suppose it's better to be sceptical than disappointed.
Seems a bit unusual to announce an MMO a mere year before its planned release date. I wonder what'll happen on the beta testing front.
They'll have to put a lot of effort into making sure they stick to the Elder Scrolls formula and not deviate into the modern MMO.
The game's also going to have to be ENORMOUS considering how big each of the "zones" were in single player games.

As long as they keep up the singleplayer im thrilled.
but if they cut that im not looking forward to it.
And Already The World Looks A Little Less Bright.....
I dont know if i will play it. It will depend on if it has a sub fee and how it looks.
Hmm let's see this seems familiar:
-awesome single player rpg. check;
-action taking place "before"(what the hell is it with the fascination for origins, why not offer some damn continuity to the story, everyone jumps on the bandwagon of the origins these days, so damn tired of this shit). check;
-big expectations for open world pvp. check;
This all reminds me of a game that was named something about some stars and wars, that one turned out into a pile of horseshit(for me at least, and I was a big fan, had some expectations to it).
P.S.: to all the fools that might jump to my post and go like "you dun even know what the game looks like, how silly your are to dismiss it like that", those 3 features, with accent on the origins part of the story or "what happened before"- we know enough of it from the rpg's, that is enough to turn me off from this future game.Going to take a look at the game in June when more info comes out, but I have a gut feeling what I'll see is another WoW type mmo with shallow story and game-play.Here hoping I'll be wrong for once and that they might try to build a different mmo like the upcoming guild wars.
I'm the Only one here who thinks that this idea Sucks?
Simple example is SW:Tor. We have to wait for another single player Elder Scrolls game 6+ year if Bethesda WILL develope SP game.
Bioware stated that SwTor is KOTOR 3,4,5,6 etc.
+ I Can't believe that Bethesda will complete game with WHOLE Tamriel or even parts of it in few years. Only if they've developed it for past 4 years.
As I said someplace else. Not everything has to be turned into an mmo. And besides, didn't the main developer say that he would never make it into an mmo? Hmm, guess they changed their mind.
Lets hope the Elder Scrolls single player series won't be affected.......But if I remember correctly they wanted to reboot the series for the next console generation......wonder how they are going to balance all this and how long till the next game that continues the story after Skyrim comes out.

"In 2007 the company [the ones making this mmo] announced a partnership with Simutronics for the use of HeroEngine."
oh god why...tor's engine...if this is true...this game has already failed.
Not going to say it's crap before it releases, but TES is not made to be mutliplayer...
