The Elder Scrolls Online: Cinematic Trailers
The Elder Scrolls Online has some of the most epic cinematic trailers in the franchise. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that the game is the latest entry in the Elder Scrolls universe and CGI production has come a LONG way since 2011 and the release of Skyrim.
While some fans discount the Elder Scrolls Online since it wasn’t made directly by Bethesda Game Studios, I still feel the cinematics and story do a fantastic job of helping realize the Elder Scrolls universe.
Regardless of your stance on the lore, or the development teams involved, just enjoy them for what they are… a cinematic realization of Tamriel on par with an Elder Scrolls Hollywood movie! So please sit back and enjoy!
The Elder Scrolls Online – Announcement Trailer
Original Elder Scrolls Online game announcement and teaser. In typical Bethesda / ZeniMax Media fashion, not much is shown but it was exciting to see none the less.
The Elder Scrolls Online – The Arrival Cinematic Trailer
The Arrival cinematic featured the reveal of the Dark Anchors, a large plot point in the original Elder Scrolls online release that involved the Cold Harbor plane of Oblivion and Molag Bal.
The Elder Scrolls Online – The Three Fates Cinematic Trailer Supercut
The Three Fates trailer was one of my favorites! The sheer quality and length made me feel like I was watching a Hollywood made Elder Scrolls movie. I also really enjoyed all three main characters and that you got to see many of the races. (Where are the Khajiits?!) The nightblade scenes were also incredibly cool!
The Elder Scrolls Online: Imperial City
The release of the Imperial City DLC brought large scale PVP to Cyrodiil in the heart of Tamriel. Even if you aren’t a hardcore PVPer it’s really cool to travel to Cyrodiil and see it in a post Oblivion era, albeit still overrun with Daedra in many parts. The quests in Cyrodiil are so/so but it’s cool to explore cities you are familiar with and to trek through the Imperial Sewers into the heart of the Imperial City itself.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Orsinium
Orsinium was a fun expansion once you finally accepted the quest from the Orc woman that stalked you every time you entered town. (“There you are! I’ve been looking all over for you!”) The main draw being the city of Orsinium itself and the political intrigue surrounding it’s proposed unification.
The Elder Scrolls Online: The Thieves Guild
I think I enjoyed the Thieves Guild quest lines more than the Dark Brotherhood which I feel was the reverse my experience in Skyrim and Oblivion. I just liked the story and characters more than those of the Dark Brotherhood. I also think Abah’s Landing was a little more interesting for me however it was really cool to see Anvil and Kvatch in the Dark Brotherhood expansion. And who could live without Blade of Woe?! (No pun intended.)
The Elder Scrolls Online: The Dark Brotherhood
The Dark Brotherhood pulled me in from the beginning with the quest at the light house but overall I didn’t connect with the characters as much. Contrast that with the Dark Brotherhood of Skyrim and it was a bit of a let down. I think where this DLC shined was in the level design of missions, the sanctuary, Anvil and Kvatch, etc. These areas were really fun to explore as well as the mini levels created for the daily quests.
