The Elder Scrolls games are rich with thousands of years of lore, and TESO will take advantage of that. Set a millennium before the events of Skyrim and 800 years before Oblivion and Morrowind, the land of Tamriel was a different place. Those who have spend hundreds of hours exploring the TES lore in previous games will see the seeds being sown for future events, while new players will enjoy the unique setting for the first time.
The Elder Scrolls Online will explore a time before Tamriel was united. Players will choose between three warring factions: the Daggerfall Covenant (composed of Orcs, Redguard, and Bretons), the Aldmeri Dominion (made of Altmer, Bosmer, and Khajiit), and the Ebonheart Pact (of Dunmer, Nords, and Argonians). Each side has their own philosophical and political perspectives, which will be explored in the story.
Like previous games in the series, TESO will continue the grand tradition of storytelling. Quests will explore the people and land of Tamriel, growing the world organically. Venture out with a party of friends or by yourself. Most of these encounters will be controlled with instance technology, so you'll still have the freedom that you'd expect from an Elder Scrolls game.
The Elder Scrolls Online is expected to release in 2013, with many betas, both open and closed, leading up to it. Expect more information soon!
