Now that The Elder Scrolls Online has been officially revealed, we can look back to the March 2012 leak of an Elder Scrolls MMO by Tom’s Guide and look for clues. All of the details first reported by Tom’s Guide have proven to be true, including the setting, time period, and presence of three player factions. The leak also claimed that each faction would be thematically based on three different animals – the lion, the eagle, and the dragon. Looking at the game’s first official image, it seems that these faction symbols are indeed correct. But what does this mean for the game, and which group will you choose to side with?
