4.4.14 Well, the announcement is final for release. Its going to be interesting seeing how this long awaited title turns out, as the Elder Scrolls FIRST MMORPG! In a blog post, director Matt Firor announced the release date and gave some more detail on the progress of the game’s beta test: "We’ve had approximately 4 million people sign up for beta and that number continues to grow. We hope that just about every one of you who have signed up for beta will get an invitation to play sometime between now and the weeks before launch. These tests are very important, not only for gameplay feedback, but also to test our infrastructure. Beta tests can sometimes be a little rough when we are testing some systems for the first time with large numbers of players. So thank you to all who have participated for your understanding and support. It is very much appreciated." Recent attempts by major gaming companies to go up against World of Warcraft have had mixed results, with Age of Conan and Star Wars: The Old Republic both converting to largely free-to-play models despite strong brands. Like The Old Republic, The Elder Scrolls Online will be set in the relative past of the action of the current, single-player Elder Scrolls role-playing games.

Are you planning on looking into this new Elder Scrolls game? My experience with Bethesda games, is that they have always been well planned out. And you can tell the developer ACTUALLY took their time in development of the game. Should be a great title... although I am not so frilled with the price tag.
