If you like MMORPGs and fantastic stories, then you most likely heard about the Elder Scrolls, if you didn’t actually play one of the versions. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited came to life in 2015, when the studio that produced it decided that there was no need for an active subscription to play the game. This way, they opened the gates widely and allowed anyone to play at least on a basic level.
Initially, the game was released in April 2014 after 7 years of development and rumors of release. We can easily say that Elder Scrolls fans were left waiting a long time so they can see their favorite story’s ending.
Even more, the Tamriel Unlimited is the first installment in the Elder Scrolls franchise to have an open end. This means that the gameplay is not linear and characters are free to explore different sections of the game in their own time.
Even better, the game is available for PS4, Xbox One, Windows and OS X which allows anyone to play this amazing game.
The Tamriel Unlimited version is set in the continent of Tamriel and can be seen as a sequel of the other games. The action is spiced up with quests, events, and day-long exploration of the wonderful and fantastic universe created by developers. Of course, there is the possibility to play solo even though the game doesn’t have a single-player mode. So, if you like some alone time, you will just have to avoid other players.
Since the action takes place in the magic world of the elves, your character will also be an elf. Thus, you can select out of 8 elf races and 4 classes (High Elves, Dark Elves, Wood Elves, Orcs) when creating your persona. Your weapons will be spells, and certain attack types, that are specific to each class and race. However, if the idea of being an elf is not quite pleasant, you can also select between a vampire and a werewolf.
Just like with the other Elder Scrolls games, your character is imprisoned and has to escape at the very beginning of the game. The action continues through a series of portals that allow you to reach task locations and earn points, gold and experience. Your main task is to recover your character’s soul which has been taken away by the Daedric Prince Molag Bal. Molag Bal is the negative character who is trying to capture the imperial throne.
In the end, the action is based on the same struggle between good and evil, but the fantastic setting makes it original and exciting.
