Default Elder Scrolls Online Update

Morning All,

Various smatterings of information have been floating around the Net for a while regarding this... 'new' TES game. Most recently more information on its creation has come to light from various places. One comment points to a degree of completion since before TES- V Skyrim was completed as they were required to 'hold off' on TES Online's version of Skyrim until TES-V was released.

You can read the full Article Here

A round up of everything known can be found HERE

Which has disappointed me quite a bit as it states that TES Online will be a 3rd Person oriented game, with an action bar combat system. I'm not sure i want to play this anymore

Races are put into two distinct groups and have their own history, derived mostly from pre-existing Lore, which is a good thing. 'If' i do play i can see me playing Khajiit again and joining up with the Dark Brotherhood. Hopefully thats possible, as i enjoy assassinating people

Anyhoo, Enjoy

Alice

I predict that this game is going to flop hard. People are going to buy it thinking its gona be like Skyrim and get real disappointed, or they are going to over hype it like "The Old Republic" and then get all whiny about it when it does not meet their expectations.

This combat sounds very, very stupid.

Quote:
Your skill bar in The Elder Scrolls Online has six slots, so Nick explained what you can put in each one. With great enthusiasm.

“Your first two slots are derived from your weapon. If I pick up a bow they’re bow attacks and if I pick up a sword then they’re sword attacks. Anyone can do that and anyone can be good at it. That’s sort of a touchstone of Elder Scrolls games, and we wanted to make sure we included that in here.
I have never seen an Elder Scrolls game with an ability bar. Or weapon based abilities. Ever. How is that a "touchstone"? Unless I am misunderstanding "touchstone" which actually means "something the game has never done before at any point".

Indeed, You have it correct. This reminds me of Never Winter Nights.

To be fair, the reason TOR flopped was because it was shit, not because of how it was hyped up.

Even disregarding all of the negative things that have been revealed so far, everyone will be too busy playing GW2 (the next "savior" of the MMO genre, donchaknow!) to even care about this. It'll probably get enough subs to stay afloat for a while, but don't expect any resounding successes.
