The Elder Scrolls Online
By Tore Andersen
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. Developed by ZeniMax Online Studios and published by Bethesda in 2014. One of the best MMORPG's available, with a huge and interesting game-world. The graphics are great, but the render is a bit "bland" and pale. This is a custom ReShade for a more atmospheric fantasy environment with natural, vibrant and immersive colors. It's a fantasy-game after all, and beautiful graphics doesn't make it any less fun to play. See screenshots below.

*Note for Windows 10 users: (IMPORTANT - PLEASE
The Creators update for Windows 10 introduced a wide variety of problems, especially for games with custom renders like ENB or ReShade. If you encounter problems like messed-up graphics or extreme slowdowns, then follow the steps in number 4 here: (LINK) *Pay special attention to the RivaTuner settings.
If this doesn't work, then Windows is somehow still blocking it. Search Google for alternative ways of forcing Windows 10 to use custom d3d files.

The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMORPG developed by ZeniMax
and published by Bethesda. It was released for Windows in 2014, and PS4/XboX One
in 2015. The game takes place around Tamriel, and will in time cover the entire
continent. The storyline is indirectly connected with the other Elder Scrolls
games. The game-play is nonlinear, with a good mixture of quests, random events
and free exploration, just as in the single-player games. The story lines are
where ESO stands out compared to other MMORPG's. The quests are meaningful and
interesting, and not just "go there, get this, return". There are 10 different
races to choose from. Nords, Redguards, Bretons, Imperials, Dunmer (Dark Elves),
Altmer (High Elves), Bosmer (Wood Elves), Orsimer (Orcs), Khajiit (The cats) and
Argonians (Humanoid reptiles). There are 5 classes: Dragonknight, Sorcerer,
Nightblade, Templar and Warden. Each class has different attacks, spells, and
passive effects. Just as in Skyrim, the player can also join factions which can
further alter the character, such as becoming a vampire or a werewolf. Guilds
and especially crafting skill also gives the player a huge variety of choices
and abilities: Crafting includes: Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Clothier, Enchanting,
Woodworking, Provisioning, and Jewelry.
The events of ESO are taking place about 1000 years before those of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and 800 years before The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. ESO is mostly similar to Skyrim in terms of plot and storyline. It has two separate conflicts progressing at the same time, one about the fate of the world and the balance of all things, and one about power.
Most parts of Tamriel are already available in the game, but not all. In time, the entire continent will be available via DLCs or buyable zones from the Crown Store.
