Bethesda and parent company Zenimax have released a 9-minute clip providing the first footage of upcoming MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online. There’s also some interview information provided by the game director Matt Firor, lead gameplay designer Nick Konkle and art director Jared Carr among others.

If you’re the MMO type then there’s a lot to be excited about here, including new server structures that obviate having to worry about whether you’re starting a character in a server with the majority of your friends. Dubbed “Mega Server”, The Elder Scrolls Online basically has one server and every person is dumped into that one game. It’ll also link you up with your friends so you can get straight into questing together.

Hit the jump for the clip.
