"Developed by the team at Zenimax Online Studios, The Elder Scrolls Online merges the unmatched exploration of rich worlds that the franchise is known for with the scale and social aspects of a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Players will discover an entirely new chapter of Elder Scrolls history in this ambitious world, set a millennium before the events of Skyrim as the daedric prince Molag Bal tries to pull all of Tamriel into his demonic realm." -GameInformer

:O The Hist tree, also i wonder if we will be seeing some of the lost races, such as the "Sload / Lilmothiit" in the Elder Scrolls online.

Well it would be pretty cool to see a lost race, but i do not know if the time set in Elder Scrolls online will support that, :S The sload also aren't really a "Lost race" like the Lilmothiit / Dwemer, they were pretty much just driven back and out of tamriel and to have their home "Thras" Sunken and destroyed. not quite extinct though.

The lilmothiit went extinct around the end of the first era, the time when forces from Akavir invaded, and TES: Online takes place in the second era. Then again, the Snow Elves (Falmer) were thought to be extinct too, so there is a possibility that other lost races may also still exist.

Honestly, I'd rather see the lost races in a main Elder Scrolls game rather than in this one, if they made an appearance in TES: Online, they would likely have little to no role in things - races that players can play as are already confirmed, so any other races included would be simply NPCs that stand around. I'd rather play as a lost race than just see one.

Also, I'm just adding this on because it is interesting lore: there are many unconfirmed races in the Elder Scrolls universe. One in-game book accounts that there were once "ratmen" from Akavir seen attacking ships along Tamriel's coasts. So, there's a possibility that there are many other races.
