Elder Scrolls Online: Can It Be A Competent Successor To Skyrim?

The Elder Scrolls franchise is a popular one. A series of games that started with Arena way back in the hay days of 1994. From there came Daggerfall and after that the much more known and popular, Morrowind, Oblivion and finally Skyrim. All these games brought something new and never before seen to gaming, with increasingly wonderful technology with each release.

With a pay to play model I don't see this game going very far at all. RIP

Even some of TES fanbase dislike the fact that its P2P and many have spoken out against it. This should be a clear sign that it won't be met with the same response Skyrim or previous TES were met with.

Exactly, pay to play means it won't be getting many people's dollars!

I put in hundreds upon hundreds of hours into Bethesda games.

I have no interest in sharing my "world" with other players, or paying $66 for game which I have to pay $15 a month to really enjoy.

no thanks, just release Fall Out 4

I don't look at ESO as Skyrim's successor. It won't be nearly as detailed as the proper ES games. I know how purists hate on the idea, but I'd rather have a "real" ES with co-op, 2-4 players. The usual story of a prophesied lone hero could instead be a story about a group like the Blades, or maybe one of the guilds. The players could still belong to any guild they chose, but aid whichever guild was the star of the story. Ideally, this ES would encompass all of Tamriel, like Arena did and ESO will do.

That's exactly what I wanted. 2 player coop.

Honestly theres a reason why us "purists" hate the idea of co-op

1) The game dosen't need it

2) It would ruin it

and

3) Bethesda can't even do a single player game imagine if they did co-op.

I really think you guys don't think this through well enough, they don't just push a few buttons in development after a few days and go "...DONE, we've added co-op"

I mean you say "but I'd rather have a "real" ES with" but to me a "real" ES game would be a wonderful single player only game

"2) It would ruin it"

That's exactly what people said about Uncharted 2, but it ended up being the best game in the series. It had an amazing SP, awesome coop, and awesome multiplayer.

I don't need some super in-depth coop system, though it would be cool. All I want is to be able to play with 1 friend. That's it. No special systems. Just let me play with 1 friend, and increase the enemy difficulty if possible. That's all I want.

"3) Bethesda can't even do a single player game imagine if they did co-op. "

Bethesda's bug/performance problems aren't related to a lack of talent, it's the fact that they use the Gamebryo engine which is an extremely buggy pile of crap. Bethesda said a while back that they've already built a brand new state-of-the-art engine from scratch. It's highly unlikely for that new engine to be buggy like the Gamebryo engine, so their next gen games would be perfectly fine.

MysticStrummer1086d ago

That's cool Fox. It's just that I've played all the ES games and would love to explore those worlds with a friend. I have friends who agree.

I strongly disagree that it would ruin anything, except the tired premise of a lone prophesied hero, but I also don't have any confidence in Bethesda's ability to pull it off on a technical level.

As for needing co-op, what game does?

s8anicslayer1087d ago

There will always be people who have nothing else better to do with their money but to blow it on something like this. And to think that Sony pushed for this on consoles is hard to believe.

porkChop1087d ago

ESO looked good until they announced a monthly sub on top of microtransactions.

MAULxx1087d ago (Edited 1087d ago )

I was somewhat excited to try out ESO up until we found out it was pay full for the game & monthly subscription.
I'll just wait for ES: VI.
I also think a more focused coop experience would be better. Four to five player party. Could have a separate storyline than single player.

-Foxtrot1087d ago

Nope....people like deep single player RPG games where you and you alone are drawn into this big world you have to master and conquer on your own.

This really looks like a typical MMO to be honest.
