On November 11th 2013, the Gaiscioch celebrated their 12th year by releasing a new community trailer that announced plans for the fifth chapter of their vast gaming community. Chapter Five is a true return to the Gaiscioch roots, harking back to Dark Age of Camelot. They will rejoin old friend Matt Firor, with the eagerly awaited expansion into The Elder Scrolls Online.
Over the past decade, the Gaiscioch Social Gaming Community has searched for a game that was both easy to play, and features epic siege warfare, memorable raids, intuitive crafting, a wealth of roleplaying material, and plenty of uncharted wonders to explore.
"Friendships and social ties are what keep people interested in an online game and it is what gives the game a life of its own."
Creative Director, ZeniMax Online
After careful evaluation across a 200+ item compatibility scoring process, the Gaiscioch have determined that The Elder Scrolls Online not only meets their base requirements, but also has a higher compatibility rating than all their past chapters. At this early stage of development, and entirely based on items confirmed to be currently in game, The Elder Scrolls Online scores an 83%. Up until now, the previous highest scoring game was Dark Age of Camelot with a 79%.
The Elder Scrolls Online features a robust, massive siege system, a ridiculous amount of content to explore, and an impressive amount of dungeons to venture into. The crafting system takes the best features from current generation MMORPG's and places a traditional Elder Scrolls twist on it.
The Gaiscioch will be bringing their inclusive family-oriented ethos, and large scale public community events to this new world. For the first time in Gaiscioch history, they will no longer be limited to the audience of their server community. With this expansion into The Elder Scrolls Online, the entire player base will be their audience.
When the news was shared with ZeniMax Online about the Gaiscioch decision to open Chapter 5 in the Elder Scrolls Online, creative director Paul Sage replied "Friendships and social ties are what keep people interested in an online game and it is what gives the game a life of its own. Communities like Gaiscioch are the life-blood of what we do, and we are excited to have them in The Elder Scrolls Online."
For those that have joined one of the Gaiscioch public community events including: "Siege Night" in Dark Age of Camelot, the "Battle for Badlands" in Warhammer Online, the "Telara Saga" in RIFT, the "Great Tyrian Adventure" in Guild Wars 2, you can expect to find similar events over the next few years in The Elder Scrolls Online. Such events have been widely successful, bringing hundreds of players many hours of enjoyment, and lasting memories. Massively.com called Gaiscioch's public community events "A Community Driven Phenomenon". They have received accolades and praise from media, game development studios, and players alike.
Founder and Activities Director Benjamin "Foghladha" Foley stated "In the end it's not the loot or accolades that players walk away with, it's the memories and friendships they make that extend past a game’s life." He went on to state "Public community events are the foundation of our community. The Gaiscioch are much like a traveling circus who seek to entertain a large audience. We seek to bring enjoyable experiences to the community at large, and give them the opportunity to experience content that they normally might not see. The Elder Scrolls Online gives us an amazing opportunity to have an entire player base as our audience. We have carefully evaluated this game and stand behind ZeniMax Online and their quest to make The Elder Scrolls Online an epic experience. We look forward to the days ahead."
The Elder Scrolls Online is set to release in 2014, 20 years after the release of Elder Scrolls Arena. It brings to the MMORPG Community a rich history and over 10 Million worldwide fans. The Elder Scrolls series has been the benchmark of western RPG's for over two decades. The Gaiscioch are excited to bring their public community adventures to this legendary game series.
