One of the reasons I was so excited about Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) was that the artwork in Star Wars Galaxies (SWG) had been so beautiful. There’s nothing quite like immersing yourself in an online realm which such close attention to detail that it could almost be real. Seriously, the world’s of SWG were gorgeous, Naboo and Correllia in particular Then SWTOR stylized the game and my heart dropped. I don’t mind animation, but it wasn’t realistic enough to keep me interested for very long.
I’m over the moon to see that Elder Scrolls Online has decided to make their online world as real and detailed as possible, in keeping with other titles from the series. In these latest screenshots leaked and shared on All Games Beta, it’s clear that the new world is set to become completely engrossing as you explore. I’m still waiting for a Beta invite….please may it come!
