ZeniMax Online has released a teaser video for The Elder Scrolls Online. The official website has also gone live as well but there’s not much there at the moment, only the announcement trailer. The site also points to the Game Informer hub for the game, which will include month-long exclusive coverage of the game. Last night, information from the June issue of GI leaked online via a PDF, and it included quite a bit of artwork and in-game screenshots. The long-rumored MMO is set for a release next year on Mac and PC and will be localized in English, French, and German.

Bethesda has taken to Twitter to assure PS3 users experiencing stuttering and lag in Skyrim that the issues will be addressed with the release of Update 1.4. The issues occur with the PS3 version as save files age. Users were hoping framerate issues would be fixed with Update 1.3 in December, but Bethesda said at the time the issues would be fixed in the next release. The latest patch is expected sometime this month.

Thanks, Gamefront.

Skyrim hasn’t been out an entire week, and already the mod community is working day and night to create various patches, enhancements, and textures for the PC version. One of the neatest we’ve seen, and there are quite a few cools ones out there, is the map mod which shows you how to tweak the map in full 3D in order to zoom clear to the ground. PC Gamer said the result is a bit like a free camera mode that allows the player to “roam anywhere in the world” a bit like Google Street View. You can check it out through Skyrim Nexus, the video below, and look over a list of some other mods for the game here.

Back in February, Bethesda provided fans with a Skyrim challenge: have a baby on 11-11-11, name him or her Dovahkiin, and the studio would give the parents free Bethesda games for life. Today, it was announced that Megan and Eric Kellermeyer met the challenge when Dovahkiin Tom Kellermeyer was born on Friday at 6:08pm PST. How nerdily-awesome is that? Congratulations to the happy couple, and we really hope the little Dragonborn isn’t teased too much growing up.

Easter Eggs in games are always fun, especially when they are subtle enough to make you think a bit. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is no exception, and many references to pop-culture, history, and other games are tosses in here and there throughout the land of Skyrim. There’s even nod, a wink, and a nudge to previous Elder Scroll games in there as well, but with so many, it may be hard for you find them. Thankfully, GameFront has you covered with a list of the known Easter Eggs so far, with descriptions of each one through the link. Those who prefer to be more like Magellan, may wish to skip the link and find the funnies for themselves. If you know of more than what’s listed, hit us up in the comments section.

The first 50 minutes of Skyrim, in three videos, is below the break, courtesy of Ve3tro. We haven’t watched it, because we don’t wish to be spoiled on anything TES V related until we pick our copy up at midnight. Hell, we’ve even gone dark on Twitter to keep from seeing too much. However, if you are feeling brave, head on below. If you are more interested in screenshots, Eurogamer has a ton. Thanks, Reece.

Bethesda has released a new video for Skyrim, showing the various magic spells and combat animations with the game. It also gives you a glimpse into the game’s skill tree. Before you watch it though, if you pre-purchased the game via Direct2Drive or Steam, you can now pre-load the game. Just an FYI, ya know. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is out Friday, a measly two days from now. Still feels like ages, though.
