Chip Theory Games has made an official announcement about launching Elder Scrolls: Betrayal of the Second Era, a tabletop board game.
This particular game will revolve around Planemeld, a significant event during which Morag Bal, a Daedric Prince, tried to combine Nirn with Coldharbour, which happens to be his personal realm. In the game, players will get the opportunity to travel across different areas in Tamriel. They will get to make investigations pertaining to the Order of the Black Worm and shall work towards unravelling the plot of Morag Bal.
The gaming publisher has tied up with the Elder Scrolls Online team to develop this new game. A teaser of The Elder Scrolls: Betrayal of The Second Era was released on 27 January.
Till now, Chip Theory Games has not revealed a lot of information about the game but what one knows that it will be a ‘cooperative experience’ and will have the involvement of four players at the same time. One of the things that will make the game exciting is the presence of an elaborate character creation setup.
The game will be a combination of dungeon delving, character building and exploration. The adventures in the game have been scheduled over three gameplay sessions. Designed as a replayable game, Elder Scrolls: Betrayal of the Second Era will motivate players to go through different paths and use a variety of methods to resolve the conflicts they come across. The character creation processes and combat methods in the game seem to have been inspired by Too Many Bones, another game developed by Chip Theory Games.
