Rumor: More Details for The Elder Scrolls Online Leak to the Web

Posted Fri, May 04, 2012 by Martuk

We’re going to file this one under rumor for now, but it’s hard to keep information secret in the digital age as Game Informer has apparently recently found out as rumored details from their June Issue exclusive for The Elder Scrolls Online reportedly began making its way around the web today.

Included in the reported 19-page PDF of the leaked story are details about The Elder Scrolls Online setting, gameplay and a lot more. A few of those details revealed that the game is a fully-voiced MMORPG with a third-person perspective, no playable werewolves or vampires, and will feature most of Tamriel including Skyrim, Morrowind, Summerset Isle and Elseweyr. Endgame content will also feature heroic mode dungeons, raids and high end open public dungeons.

Some things that will not be in the game at launch include player housing, no NPC romances or marriages, no aggro mechanic, and most likely no dragons.

The details also set the timeframe of the game 1000 years in the past with three factions that feature their own leveling content. The Elder Scrolls Online also features three-faction PvP that can consist of up to 100v100 battles with a majority of the conflicts taking place in Cyrodil. When a capital is taken, the most accomplished PvP player of your faction will become emperor.

The leaked details reportedly come from Game Informer Magazine’s June Issue and are also apparently the source of earlier leaked screenshots. Read the full breakdown at Neogaf.
