Five minutes of very impressive CGI.

Interested in helping Bethesda out with The Elder Scrolls Online? Well, as of right now beta sign-ups are now available for their upcoming MMO — head over to the official website for all the details of how to sign up.
To celebrate, they’ve released this rather snazzy and impressively long trailer — take a look below for five minutes of CG goodness (or download it from our file mirror in HD). Is it as impressive as the Heart of the Swarm opening movie? It’s a very close call.
We don’t know much about TESO yet, but we do know some interesting facts, including its dedication to an almost-single-server philosophy using what they’re calling ‘Megaservers’. One of the cool things about this technology is that players will be able to select what sort of play styles they’re interested in (PVP, PVE, raids etc) and what age groups they want to play with, and the architecture will seamlessly sort you into zone instances with people matching your requirements, but never require you to switch servers to find your friends. It’s not really the same as a proper single-server, but it’s a very interesting approach nonetheless.
