Elder Scrolls Online Nirnroot, Lockpicking teased

If you are looking forward to the release of the Elder Scrolls Online game this year, you are definitely going to enjoy the latest gameplay video that we have to show you. ZeniMax Online Studios are developing the game and they have unveiled some of the gathering and exploration features in the game – including the return of one famous plant from Skyrim and Oblivion.

Elder Scrolls Online is due out on PC before the end of the year, but Bethesda has yet to announce an exact release date for when the game will be available – perhaps this information will be coming during E3 2013 though next month.

For now, we have seen frequent teaser trailers released in the meantime and this latest one is titled Gathering and Exploration. We see some very familiar looting aspects as what you would have experienced in Skyrim and Oblivion, while also there’s confirmation that lockpicking will return, as well as the famous Nirnroot plant too.


The Nirnroot is a special plant in the Elder Scrolls universe, often granting the player some exclusive time duration skills once mixed using Alchemy. Gathering Nirnroots are often part of a special task as well, so it will be interesting to see what type of quests users will get when finding the plant scattered around the different regions.

You’ll notice that the lockpicking mechanism in Elder Scrolls Online will be different to the one seen in Skyrim. It also looks more tricky to open locks, which will please a lot you who were complaining that it was too easy in Skyrim.

Watch the video above and you’ll see that it is essentially a continuation of everything that you loved in Skyrim. The key debate will come when Bethesda finally announces subscription fees. If you are interested in this game, tell us how much you would be willing to pay per month to play it.
