Gamescom started off with a flood of fantastic games, both behind closed doors and on the show floor. I was lucky enough to have 2 hours with The Elder Scrolls Online; why two hours you may ask? Well, playing a game like this requires a bit of time especially when making obvious comparisons to Skyrim or Oblivion. It’s difficult to know what to expect, an MMO Skyrim you may say. And in some respects you would be correct, in fact it looks and plays so much like Skyrim that I had to check myself when an online player would join in my battles. But scraping beneath the surface reveals so much more than just having multiple players prance around in The Elder Scrolls universe.
