Following months of speculation surrounding the mooted Elder Scrolls MMO, Bethesda have now officially announced The Elder Scrolls Online.
“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends – something fans have long said they wanted" ... NO. No we really don't care about that. We want an MMO with Elder Scrolls gameplay. First/Third person, realtime combat, decision making, interesting quests, stealth, items, etc. Please don't deliver a WoW clone based on TES lore.
well, I wasn't really waiting for an ES online game... but we'll see what Bethesda comes up with.
Bethesda isnt developing, Zenimax Online Studios is. And, i have mixed feelings about this. TES being an MMO can't be a good thing unless it is a Sandbox. Also, the engine will likely be the HeroEngine, the same one used on SWTOR, a crappy engine btw.
What MMO isnt Sandbox :/ ?
@Laxman: Conan for example, you can put Guildwars in there as well. And neither is SWTOR to be honest.
Interesting, hope it turns out well, due out next year...they must have been working on this for some time now.
Been playing some SW:TOR, just got into Tera Online, and pre-ordered Guild Wars 2... and now news of Elder Scrolls MMO. Good time for MMO fans :)
I have no idea why you got all those Disagrees except for the disagree Trolls that run rampant on N4G!!
1. 1.7 million people are enjoying SW:Tor
2. I myself am playing Tera Online and it's AWESOME!
3. Guild Wars 2, not too much to say about GW2 except "IT'S FRIGGIN GUILD WARS 2"!
4. Elder Scrolls MMO if good will only bolster the awesome MMO line-up
5. .....and there is still a Fallout MMO lurking around
6. Firefall, Tribes:Ascend, Planetside 2, The Secret World, ArcheAge, etc are just some of the other Big Name MMo's on the horizon!
MMO's are GREAT!!
Well that's great news for those who wanted this and Now let's see what Bethesda comes up with..
Excellent. Now that this is on the way, I can start to speculate on what the next Elder Scrolls instalment will be.
Console(ps3/X360)? Interesting 512MB ram...... I say this game better next-gen(Console).
I don't really game on the PC, but hopefully this comes to the next-gen consoles. I can't wait to see some gameplay. Plus, I'm glad they didn't just try to force online into the current form of The Elder Scrolls.
I they can keep the elder scrolls formula then it will be amazing anything different then it might as well not even live
Arrows to the knee, arrows to the knee everywhere.
I hope it's like Elder Scrolls previous games, but online. Not just a WOW-MMO style with TES-lore
I agree. Although i've wished for multiplayer even if it was only like you and a friend and been called dumb and that it wouldn't work in elder scrolls because it would 'take away' from the experience. Hopefully this turns out well, should be fun :D
I'd much rather they add co-op play to Skyrim, or a new TES-title Rather than attempt to make a world full of players. That will undoubtably result in a typical MMO.
I was hoping for a new fallout.
Now it's an MMO, I wonder if they will replicate the scale of hammerfell?
