Bethesda marketing chief Pete Hines has claimed that the company is "technically capable" of bringing multiplayer to the Elder Scrolls series, but explained at length why it's not considering the addition.
Do whatever you feel is right Bethesda. Bethesda games have been one of the few this gen where gameplay was more of a priority than graphics. But Skyrims got some nice eyecandy to it so this could be one of those extremely rare gems that people still talk about 10 years from now.
i see interesting
hopefully it'll be one of those rare gems that people still play 10 years from now
Make a MMO damn you.
that would be another lesser game
They put in enough bugs for singleplayer. You can't expect them to catch them when there's more than one player involved!
If there's one series of games that doesn't need MP in any way shape or form, it's the Elder Scrolls series.
I loveddd Oblivion, still have my limited edition copy and cannot wait for Skyrim! :D
Not for V but as a separate Game it would work. It would not even HAVE to be an ES Game, just a good MMO.
I am glad they aint adding MP. Keep that shit out of TES thanks.
at least have coop with 2 players.
When oblivion came out i wanted to play with a friend or 2 and explore, hunt and the like. Real players are better than NPC's that don't do anything. With real players you can buy/trade/sell items and name your own prices. I hate trying to haggle the AI when my friend can just give me 90% off on some spare armor he has or hell, just give it to me for free.
All i got say Demon's Souls had online . Online won't make it a lesser game if they had 2 teams 1 for MP other SP. Online adds more valve to a game.
Itll already be 150 hours of content then you can always go back and do the other classes. Dont need no gimmicky multiplayer. Multiplayer also takes up disc space, so yes they are sacrificing single player in order to add a multiplayer mode.
Demon's souls was designed WITH mp at its core , not with some secondary team as a side dish . That's a silly argument and example , with a game that while excellent , even better imo , isnt even half as big as any Elderscrolls game .
Aside from the RPG element you've taken two completly different games and claimed that what works for one will work for another. ES is a story driven experience, if theres another person running around in your world killing NPCs it kinda fucks up your story.
I'm glad the majority seem to be of the same opinion when it comes to MP :) The Elder Scrolls is one of the games which needs no MP in any way, shape or form - it is purely there for the gamer to experience on his own and at his own pace; to feel that you are truly alone in experiencing this awesome world, not because 'someone wants to show you where they found a cool sword'...
Now what you just explained is the essence of an RPG. There is a reason why Bioware is keeping Mass Effect and Dragon Age SP only as well.
