The Elder Scrolls Online is an online role-playing game that continues the line of The Elder Scrolls games. Events unfold about 1,000 years before the events of Skyrim. Here, players will complete interesting story quests, complete group dungeons, and fight in the War of Alliances for the title of Emperor of Tamriel.

Like the other games of the Elder Scrolls series, ESO combines the gameplay in the first and third person. At the beginning of the game, you create and customize your character. Nine of the ten races represented in the game are divided into three alliances. Your choice will determine whether you belong to one faction or another. As for the character customization, it is implemented very decently. Everyone will be able to choose the appearance of the hero according to his taste.

We are waiting for a huge continent of Tamriel, divided into several locations. To develop your character and become stronger, you will need to earn experience and money. To do this in The Elder Scrolls Online has a lot of opportunities.

Also, The Elder Scrolls Online has several factions, that you can join. All of these guilds are fighting for dominance over Tamriel, and it's up to you to contribute to this battle. Each player can join several factions at once and may even become Emperor in the future!

Battlefield is a special mode with 3 teams of 4 players each. To win, a team must score the most points by completing a certain task.

War of Alliances is the most massive and most interesting entertainment that can make you the Emperor of Tamriel. Periodically, 3 warring alliances fight for dominance over the continent. To win, a faction must score the most points in a set amount of time. The points themselves are awarded for capturing fortresses and resources.

At the end of the battle, all participants receive generous rewards and the winners receive the most valuable prizes.

The combat system of The Elder Scrolls Online is almost no different from the same "Skyrim" or "Oblivion". It is still NON-Target, and the character has 3 main characteristics: health, magic, and power reserve.

Skills are explored sequentially and presented in a tree-like hierarchy. Each character can have a maximum of 5 active skills and 1 ultimate ability. There are also passive skills with good bonuses to various characteristics. 

Weapons in the game are melee and ranged. It is quite a lot. These are swords, axes, shields, bows, staffs, etc. As for armor, there are 3 types: light, medium, and heavy. Each piece of equipment can be created and improved with the appropriate crafts. At the same time, things gradually wear out and will eventually need to be repaired.

Conclusion

The graphics in The Elder Scrolls Online are more than decent, and the soundtrack is top-notch, just like in other games in the series. To this day, this MMORPG is actively praised on Steam, with a score of 71/100 on Metacritic. In our opinion, ESO is definitely worth the attention and the money spent on the purchase.
