I’m probably in the minority when it comes to gamers who haven’t tried out any of the Elder Scrolls titles. I’ve always been caught up in sci-fi games to give much time to other titles, and when I’m hooked on a series I tend to play that on a continuous loop rather than branch out. I’m also extremely busy and know that my life would pretty much come to a standstill if I bought more games (I don’t own a console for that very reason). I’ve seen many trailers for Skyrim and it looks AWESOME, but now I’ve found The Elder Scrolls Online, I may be hooked.
In this new video from ZenimaxOnlineStudios, they share the beginnings of what looks to be a new and awesome MMORPG. As I’ve mentioned, I don’t know the Elder Scrolls worlds, I know nothing of the lore, races, characters from this series, but even so, the 9min video hasn’t failed to make a positive impact on me. So much so, that I’ve signed up for beta testing.
If you’ve got a few minutes to spare and are looking for a new MMORPG, or have always hoped for the Elder Scrolls to move online, then seriously – take a look. The world building is great, and I’m glad to see that they’ve gone down the realistic rather than stylised route (something I’m not keen on in SW:TOR). I’m also impressed to hear that they’ve created a new MEGA-server technology which will allow everyone to play in one world; no annoyances trying to find friends or switch alts from one server to the next.
Can’t wait to see more from this potential new obsession.
