The Elder Scrolls Online at QuakeCon 2014
Last year if you remember, QuakeCon hosted the first ever live gameplay reveal of The Elder Scrolls Online, showcasing to the world what would become one of the most hotly anticipated releases of 2014. The game has since released and received it’s first two content updates, so many thought that ESO wouldn’t really have a big presence at this year’s QuakeCon.
Well, they will be there, and the team at ZeniMax will be there in force.
ESO will have many different events throughout the weekend, including a Future of ESO panel, as well as a fan meet-and-greet and much more. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from ZeniMax at QuakeCon, directly from the ESO website:
PANEL: THE FUTURE OF ESO
The ESO devs will talk about where the game is headed and answer your questions on the main stage. Each developer (listed below) will speak about a specific aspect of ESO and what’s in store, followed by a live Q&A.
