20 mins of The Elder Scrolls Online beta footage leaks onto internet

UPDATE: ZeniMax Media pulls video.

UPDATE: That didn't take long! ZeniMax Media has had the video removed from Vimeo.

ORIGINAL STORY: A 20 minute video of unedited The Elder Scrolls Online beta gameplay has found its way online.

The video emerged this weekend (via PCGamesN), where it popped up on YouTube and DailyMotion before it was removed following copyright claims by Zenimax Media - the parent company of TESO developer ZeniMax Online Studios.

But, at the time of publication, the video is still available on Vimeo, and is reproduced below.

It shows character creation and the Daggerfall starting area. The player, called "Worst Youtube", begins life on a boat. Soon enough he runs about the shore killing enemies and local wildlife, including The Elder Scrolls' famous Mudcrab.

Familiar The Elder Scrolls mechanics, such as the sneaking eye and the first-person perspective, are included.

The Elder Scrolls Online is currently in closed beta, with ZeniMax Online sending out invitations in waves. Beta events are held at weekends, and it's likely this video was recorded from one of them.
