Cool Videos: Check out the animatic trailer for The Elder Scrolls online from Bethesda Softworks

For those that have delved into the awesome, life-consuming RPG world of The Elder Scrolls, this trailer is something to behold.  Probably some of the best animatics I've ever seen for a video game to date, the trailer for Bethesda Softworks latest venture, The Elder Scrolls online, features a large scale battle within the fantasy universe that screams epic.  The online venture is currently launching its beta phase, preparing for its big launch, which will likely kill productivity for millions around the world.  I am a huge fan of the games, having logged a shameful amount of hours on both Oblivion and Skyrim (with much more to go, I'm afraid) and feel that it's the best experience I've ever had with video games (the Fallout series is right up there). 

At any rate, check out the official site for more details and to sign up for the beta launch.  In the meantime, check out this super kick ass animatic trailer for the launch.  I guarantee awesomeness.

Enjoy:

I hate to be "that guy", but this isn't an "animatic" trailer. An animatic is a bare-bones, rough cut of whatever you're planning to make, be it animated or live action. Just to nail down basic camera angles, timing, etc.

As for the game, looks like another run of the mill MMO. I doubt it'll be as different from the rest as Guild Wars 2. Pass.

Saw it last week

And was blown away by the quality. Srsly Bethesda and Blizzard could make and animation studio together and make enough money to rule the world! The one thing i really liked about the vid was how it actually stayed very "Elder Scrolls" by having a Warrior, Thief/Assassin and a Mage as the main characters, which have been the main 3 guilds in the Elder Scrolls games since at least Morrowind.

The TESO cinematic short film and Star Wars: TOR cinematic shorts were actually created by a company called 'Blur Studios' http://www.blur.com/ . I would say they're the ILM of the gaming industry. They're THE company to go to for cinematic shorts.

Ah ok, i had just figured that Bethesda would have done it in house like Blizzard does. Still awesome looking cinematics.

The quality is superb, but it could've used some epic music to make it... epic.

Dude, if I could, I would lock myself away in a room and eat waffles and play Elder Scrolls like that dude in Gamer. Unfortunately, I don't foresee an opening for such blissful activities. However, this will not stop me from finding the time to continue my Skyrim journey, as well as the DLC.

I will live vicariously through you all for the online thing.

lmao, you had me at waffles. I hear you and there's nothing wrong with Skyrim by any means. One of the best games I ever played. Took me two weeks to explore just the surrounding area around Markarth.

I'm way behind, but I honestly play until I can't play anymore. Until I'm just standing there, having beat every possible thing I can beat and wearing the best armor with the best weapons. And, that's it. It's like the end of that South Park episode when they're playing WOW.

I regret nothing.
