It's only been about half a year since "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" came out, and that piece of work is still sitting at the top of the stacks. But art director Paul Sage hit E3 this week with some heavy-hitting info on an upcoming addition to the Elder Scrolls universe: "The Elder Scrolls Online," a massively multiplayer online game set 1,000 years before "Skyrim." And it could touch down as soon as next year.

Sage told Gamasutra, "One of the things we're trying to do [with our MMORPG] is get that feeling of active and reactive combat. So my take is that you have to feel like, 'This is really kind of like The Elder Scrolls [single player RPG] combat ... I will say that playing with your friends and meeting strangers, and being able to just do it in a way where you're informed, it's a big thing for us." There's a lot more information in the interview below. Can "The Elder Scrolls Online" really live up to the legendary games it's based on?

    Well anyway, I'm certainly not new to Skyrim. Maybe compared to other players. My brother calls everyone a noob. It gets really annoying.

    No it won't live up to the franchise, because the franchise is all about playing by yourself. There will be fun aspects, but as a whole it won't compare.

    It's from Bethesda studios... Everything they release is amazing! That said, every Elder Scrolls Game has been great. Doubt the sixth one (sixth in a sense) will be the first to suck.
