The Elder Scrolls Online Screenshots Show Characters and Beautiful Environments, Q&A Shares RvR Details

Today Zenimax Online Studios released a new and rather lovely batch of screenshots of The Elder Scrolls Online, giving us a glimpse on some of the races and environments that will bring the upcoming MMORPG to life.

I have to say that I’m particularly impressed by how the looks of characters have progressed. Just a few months ago I wasn’t exactly happy about how cartoonish they looked, but now they seem to be much more in like with what The Elder Scrolls series got us used to.

In addition to the screenshots the studio also released a new Q&A mostly focused on giving further details on how RvR (the game’s factional warfare) in Cyrodiil will work. We learn more on the fact that keep ownership will grant advantages to the alliances controlling them and on how conquering lumber mills, farms, and mines around them can help in weakening an enemy keep or strengthening our own.

In addition to that more details are shared on how siege engines are built. No resources will be needed besides alliance points, and while battering rams will be mobile, players will be able to pick up ballistae, catapults, and trebuchets and reposition them.

Roleplayers will also be happy to hear that the world of The Elder Scrolls Online is also full of taverns and similar environments that will facilitate their favorite activity.

You can read the full Q&A here, and enjoy the screenshots in the gallery below.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
