The Elder Scrolls Online: those pesky Scamps are back, and with a vengeance

As if Daedra weren’t bad enough on their own, their favorite, small battle fodder are back in The Elder Scrolls Online: Scamps.

Yes, the little bastards from Morrowind and Oblivion are back and looking over the video of them in action, it seems they thrive on being able to swarm the player.

While in the past I personally didn’t find them to be much of a threat, as they were rather easy to disperse of, they could cause me a bit of frustration if they were summoned while I was fighting something more formidable.

This time out, they offer a bit of comic relief to go along with their sharp talons.

A developer blog discussing the changes made to the critters is through here.

The PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One MMORPG is expected in 2014 and you can sign up for the beta here.

If you get a key to it, let me know so I can start glaring at you from afar and cursing your name under my breath.
