Title: Elder *yawn* Scrolls Online
Post by: [Don_T_Shoot] on 2012-05-04 19:30:06
I'm sure you've read the news, Elder Scrolls Online (http://www.metro.co.uk/tech/games/898195-first-elder-scrolls-online-screens-and-trailer).

'It needs to be comfortable for people who are coming in from a typical massively multiplayer game that has the same control mechanisms, but it also has to appeal to Skyrim players,'

So every MMO ever, with a Skyrim skin.  Check.

Like Star Wars: The Old Republic the game will be fully voice-acted, but it will also look similar to the game with a quasi-cartoonish art style


you can't be a vampire or a werewolf and there 'most likely' won't be dragons. There will be no non-player character romances or marriages either, and you won't be able to own your own home.

So, uh, it's supposed to be Skyrim, right?  I never actually played Skyrim but they seem to be excluding the only things I've ever heard about it save the arrows to the knee bit.

Yeah, still not really sure where they're going with this one, but it seems like they're going out of their way to do exactly what you said: make it just like every other MMO, and nothing like the other Elder Scrolls games. I don't think the ES series is right for an MMO. Would have much rather seen a regular RPG with coop multiplayer. But I suppose that's Bethesda's job, and this is Zenimax.
