Posted on April 15, 2013, Devin Connors Video: 20 Minutes of The Elder Scrolls Online Gameplay
UPDATE #2: The Vimeo video is no more, but check out the screenshots below.
UPDATE #3: At Zenimax’s request, we have removed the screenshots.
Did you enjoy Dan’s Elder Scrolls Online preview? There’s finally a healthy, if not boring, side of video to go with his prose.
The above video appears to be 20 minutes of leaked gameplay footage from The Elder Scrolls Online. Despite it’s removal from DailyMotion and other video services, the video lives on via Vimeo…for now. I suspect that will change once Bethesda’s lawyers rub the sleep from their eyes in a few hours.
The video, uploaded by one “Csokis,” shows the character creation process, traveling via waypoints (or rather, “hearthpoints”), and a riveting battle between “Worst YouTube” the Sorcerer and a mudcrab. The player also shows off some of the interface options, scrolls through the various menus ad nauseam, and skips around the town of Port Hunding.
Take a gander while you can, and we will try and keep the video alive on Game Front as long as we can. If embedding is disabled at some point tonight, or if you want to watch the video in HD, the Vimeo link is here.
