Default Elder Scrolls MMO



Quote:
When The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim saw a release late last year, it rocketed up the charts and remained there. Bethesda’s latest entry into the Elder Scrolls series pretty much ensured another game in the series is going to get made, but it also looks as though a different title carrying the seriess name is also in the works.

Tom’s Guide has been told that come May Bethesda is going to officially announce the existence of Elder Scrolls Online. As you’ve probably guessed, the title points to a massively multiplayer online (MMO) game set in the Elder Scrolls world.

Such a game requires a serious amount of development time, and runs the risk of taking players away from the single-player experience of the core games that have served Bethesda so well. However, it looks as though that has been thought about, and Elder Scrolls Online will be set at a very different time period to the other games.

Loading up Elder Scrolls Online will see you enter the “Second Era,” which is hundreds of years before any of the released games takes place. So rather than replacing those games, it offers up a whole new experience from a different time in history. The only other detail we know at this time is the fact there will be 3 factions represented by a bird, dragon, and lion.

With an announcement planned for May, and development already underway on the MMO, we can expect to see more of the game at E3 in June and Quakecon in August.
Source.

Personally, I'm totally on board with this. Thoughts?

When I try to imagine how a TES MMO would work, all I can think of is that it would play no differently than any of the existing games in the series.

On the other hand, playing something like Skyrim with companions who weren't retarded would be an improvement...

On the one hand, I love the Elder Scrolls universe and lore. And being able to presumably play throughout all of Tamriel is pretty damn exciting. On the other, I'm wondering if we really need another MMO. #conflicted

I love Elder Scrolls and MMOs. Of course I am here for this.

It was only a matter of time, anyway.

This (by the way, today Alea just turned and left soon as I entered a house during a mission for no reason whatsoever). On the other other hand, intelligent companion aside, it'd be the same trite shit. I've logged enough hours on copypasta dungeons and generic quests for this lifetime and the next. I doubt anyone would notice it takes places hundreds of years before Skyrim if no one told him.

It certainly wouldn't be able to follow the usual MMO experience if it were to follow and Elder Scrolls style of gameplay... What are we talking here? Skyrim with more people?

Bethesda + MMO, game won't even install properly.

Whatever it is, I'm not paying a monthly fee for it, even though I'm really here for this.

Which province will it be in? I'd be really up for some Akavir, it's barely seen or heard of in the other games so it'd be a nice isolated spot for an MMO. Bethesda will probably want recognisable races, though.

No snake people, I guess...

Apparently multiple provinces will be in the game...

I've been more excited for a game. I don't think the Elder Scrolls has what it takes to do anything to stand out as an MMO.

That'd be cool. My interest is pretty pointless though, because my PC would jump of a bridge if I even expressed interest in installing the game.
