Just some days ago, ZeniMax released a 23-minute “Supercut” trailer of its hot title The Elder Scrolls Online. According to ZeniMax, it costs over a year to make this CG trailer. Though the promotion period of the game has already passed, we can still see the sincerity of the firm in this trailer.
In The Elder Scrolls Online, three alliances struggle for control of the Ruby Throne and Tamriel itself. The chaos of war engulfs the Imperial province of Cyrodiil, and sinister forces from Oblivion seek to take advantage of the Empire’s instability, hatching a scheme to enslave all mortal souls. Released originally in four separate parts, this breathtaking cinematic trailer takes you directly to the heart of the war. Witness the three alliances clash in a deadly battle for the Imperial City, unaware of the Daedric threat waiting for the perfect moment to launch its assault.
