Update: First trailer here.

Original story: Megaton news time; ZeniMax has just announced the Elder Scrolls MMO.

Called The Elder Scrolls Online, the game is coming from ZeniMax Online Studios and is being developed for both PC and Mac. It’s expected in 2013.

Details are slim for now, with the big reveal kept for GameInformer’s June issue. Though here’s a quote from Matt Firor, game director, whose watchful eyes the game has been taking shape under: “We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted. It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
