Games in the Elder Scrolls series have always been about giving players the opportunity to become the game’s hero, and it looks like The Elder Scrolls Online will be no different. The title’s game director, Matt Firor, has announced that each character’s main storyline in the game will be “100% solo.”

Firor points back to the previous entries in the series, stating that “in The Elder Scrolls games, you’re always the hero… The last thing you want to do is have the final confrontation with Mehrunes Dagon as he’s stomping across the Imperial City, and you see like 15 guys behind you waiting to kill him.” While it’s a good point, we can’t help but wonder what kind of an impact this design will have on the social aspect of the MMO, but at this point all we can do is wait and see. Firor’s full interview over on Game Informer has plenty of extra information as well, so if you’re jonesing for more details, just head on over and check it out for yourself.
