I am unimpressed... a bit too "generic MMO" if you ask me.

no console version? I am even more disappointed than when they didn't make a console version of Star Wars Old Republic Can't justify the cost of upgrading my PC for gaming at this point in my life.

I personally would rather have a multiplayer *console* version of elder scrolls. Up to 4 players. Thats all I was hoping for...

If this really gets big then the only thing they will really succeed in doing is creating a slightly better version of WoW. Which to most elder scrolls fans really isnt saying much.

Dont get me wrong, ill try it. But its not what i was hoping for.

"

This isn't true at all, its just the devs tend to tone down the graphics to get a larger player base (more people can play it).

ever hear of everquest 2? Its graphics were pretty much state of the art on release which drove more EQ fans to go play WoW cause they knew their comps could handle it

Well on the surface it will be TES, what with Bethesda teaching the other 250 how to keep the game as buggy as possible.
Hell we might even get mediocre voice acting!
Here's to hoping!

A few minutes ago I read the list of 'features' fromm This List of Leaked Details and my heart fell. It's pretty much a generic MMO so far as gameplay goes. They gain generic MMO users that are interested in the lore and world of Tamriel, and at the same time alienate a lot of TES fans who like the way the single player games.

Why doesn't it occur to them to make the gameplay similar to the single player games? Making it appeal to 'traditional MMO' players means that it's not even going to try to carve out a gameplay niche. I DISLIKE the hotbar type systems and really want to try an MMO that doesn't use it, AND is good.

In other words, this MMO is nothing I want to pay money for and even if/when it's F2P I'd only try it out half-heartedly. Shame, because this was the first MMO I was really interested in.

AngelFNV The game is dated for 2013, so I'd say these are not, in fact, "final product screen shots."

Please tell me those are not the final product screen shots? Why would you pay for this S*** with graphics like that? If they want to make it right, they need to use BF3 engine along with crysis 3 engine. No other way this will make any profit the way its looking now. We have the tech ppl, the makers need to spend some $_$ to make it right or it will fail!

It will be Elder scrolls in name only. Not similar to the single player games we all know and love.
And most likely in looks, locations, lore.... All of that. It makes me iffy about the game, but if the story sticks close enough to the lore and the locals stick true to the games of the past, I will still probably play it...

Graphics be damned, I played runescape for a bit, and minecraft is fun as hell, graphics don't mean shit to me.

First step they need to make is improved Graphics or people will look at Skyrim then look at this Game and NEVER touch it
No they don't...if anyone with a brain remotely looks at TESO and then Skyrim, they will actually think "Not bad"...why? Well simple...you try outputting Skyrim graphics while millions of people are playing your game. The lag with Minecraft style graphics is bad enough as it is.

Furthermore, not all games sell because of their graphics alone. Graphics are a factor but not the selling point.

If you knew even one bit about MMO's you would know in order to play with a mass amount of people then you will need to sacrifice graphics.
