The Elder Scrolls Online, the long awaited massive mulitplayer edition of the Elder Scrolls series which launched last fall on PCs, has made made its way to consoles and is now available on the Xbox One as The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is the Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) edition of the award winning fantasy role playing series The Elder Scrolls, most recently known for the incredibly popular The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
