The Elder Scrolls Online Finally Looks Like an Elder Scrolls Game

Kotaku: "They said they weren't going to do it. People objected. They changed their mind. And now, behold: The Elder Scrolls Online has a first-person-with-hands mode. Ahhh. This game now looks like a Skryrim MMO." (PC, The Elder Scrolls Online)

Now it just looks like any other modern Elder Scrolls title, though with even weaker combat.

If your modern Elder Scrolls had other players running around, sure.
Kietz  +   985d ago
Pretty sure that went without saying.
Just saying.
Cueil  +   985d ago

and a Visine® as well.

This revived my interest in the game to be honest

Am i the only one who enjoys Elder Scrolls games because they aren't online games? I play them for the single player experience.
Lord_Sloth  +   985d ago
It's fine to enjoy them for what they are but that doesn't mean online play would ruin the entire experience. Especially if it's just optional. I find any game better if I can play it with my brother. And look at Dead Rising. You can play it totally alone! Besides, most people running about in Skyrim had an AI partner. What's wrong with the option of a single human partner?

I didn't want an MMO made out of the series. Just the option of co-op.

This imo is how Online play should be introduced to TES fans.

I don't think I'd be too thrilled with a pure TES title being coop/online play knowing they could have vested more time into singleplayer.

This is how Final Fantasy introduced it and nobody complained even when they went as far as giving their FF a numbered entry.

Oh yeah, absolutely. It's almost impossible to argue, however much a person may like them, that MMO's are able to achieve and sustain the same level of immersion that singleplayer games do.

There's just too many variables. Obviously you get the immersion-breaking asshats that like to troll and gank, but the story in these games always has to be built to accommodate thousands and thousands of players, so no matter how hard the developers try to create the illusion of a unique story and world events, killing that uber-boss never feels all that personal when he respawns a few minutes later for the next batch of adventurers.

Edit: I agree with Lord_Sloth. That's what I wanted too.

I mostly like them for the immersion. The only game so far that brought immersion to me in a form of an online experience is BF3
Heavenly King  +   985d ago
It looks really cool. I am playing recently Skyrim and I love it.
NiteX  +   985d ago
It looks like Skyrim with worse graphics and animations.
Summons75  +   985d ago
Finally! after all the rumors of it being a hotkey bar I was set on ignoring it, now that it looks and plays like an Elder Scroll game I will be more interested in it =] I'd rather having all of Tamriel unlocked in a single player experience like the traditional games but I'll play this for the fun adventure.

ninjagoat  +   985d ago

Looks like WoW has finally met it's match
PurpHerbison  +   984d ago

evilhasitsway  +   984d ago
