The massively multiplayer online version of Cyrodiil is almost open for business.

Publisher Bethesda Softworks revealed today that The Elder Scrolls Online will debuted for PC and Mac on April 4. The company also confirmed that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases will follow in June.

The Elder Scrolls Online is a sequel to the previous Elder Scrolls game, including the most recent release, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. TESO is similar to the others in the series, but — for the first time — Bethesda is taking the action fully online in a massive and persistent world.
