Obviously you could save yourself some tiem by jsut playing those mentioned 2 games since they will undoubtedly play exactly the same as this. If its the lore and world of TES oyur after i still say stay away from this, they have taken so many liberties with the lore presented in the original TES games its a complete abortion. Case in point the 3 factions, just look at the races in them and who they are allied with its retarded.

there are 2 types of mmo, imitators and innovaters.

Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft' might win, by fearing to attempt

5/05/12 9:31:14 PM#64

ugh, not my style at all. Reminds me EQ2 a bit, blech

I'm no graphics junkie as I prefer games like Ac1 and UO, but I can not stand the look that some of these games go for with the overly plastic look of the models...

I'll take the raw look of AC1 and Istaria anyday over this.

Huge ES fan though, and will keep checking out their SP games if they keep making them.

Actually, as a traditional MMO, it looks like it will probably be one of the better games out there.  Soft-Trinity combat system, hubless quest design, public quests/events, non-instanced as well as instanced dungeons, raids, and 3faction PvP (although it being race-locked sucks) all work to its credit, IMO.

The problem for us is that the traditional DIKU/WoW model is not even a little bit applicable to the Elder Scrolls IP.  Should have been so much more.

I wouldn't say the graphics or art style are disastrous for a game that has some time still. Plz no shiny plastic faces.

That doesnt suprise me in the least. 

 

I had said weeks ago when people started talking about it that mmos are often dubbed down compared to other games.  Not that I have anything at all against mmos, because I dont.  But when its just a fact. 

 

Did I expect an Elder Scrolls mmo to look as good as Skyrim?  In what realm of the imagination was that going to happen?  And graphics are going to be only the half of it.  The game wont probably play quite like Elder Scrolls traditionally has either.  And there will be thousand other differences. 

 

This is why I've always been against the idea entirely.  And from what Todd Howard had said, he was too.  So why in the world he would say that and then turn right around immediatly and start making an Elder mmo is beyond me.  Its really weird.  Id assume they'd be in production for awhile now.  So why would he say they had no interest in making one only a few months ago?  Weirdness.

  I don't know if anyone mentioned this, since I didn't bother reading all of the posts, but these screenshots were not leaked.  They were the same screenshots in the newest game informer that I just recieved.

 Of course people expect MMORPGS to have worse graphics than a singleplayer game, But a completely different art style? thats something else.

I still believe Todd Howard wants nothing to do with MMOs.  Todd is only the head of Bethesda Softworks.  Altman is the current chairman and ceo of Zenimax.  Consider also the recent 150 million infusion of private investment funds and a diverse board of directors, and its unlikely that the MMO directive originated with Todd, but from Altman and the board.

Unfortunately, Bethesda Softworks is the bread and butter of Zenimax.  ID hasn't produced anything of relevance for a decade.  Starbreeze has some potential, but Arkane is very minor.  Any financial hardships experienced by Zenimax over this MMO will likely hit Bethesda, and the single player RPGs, the hardest.

It would be nice if they were trolling us for once , keep in mind once I get my new Game Informer I will be scanning the coverage onto this site unless MMORPG.com staff beats me first.

My vision is just fine. See if you can see the diffrence

This is ESO:

The Elder Scrolls Online

 

This is TES:

...and what MMO pray tell is capable of going with single player game graphics?  Even the highest grade graphical MMO doesn't even come close at present, because it's just not feasible.

I disagree ArcheAge uses the Cry2 Engine the game isn't even out of closed beta and the game looks leaps and bounds better by far than the stylized TES screenies that were posted if anything I'd say the Skyrim graphics on a MMO is possible and its being done with this game. It all comes down to this do you want a quality game with all the bells and whistles that people have been clamoring for years now, or rehash the same MMO thats been done for the past 8 yrs and hope for the best?

I'd say if a non-mmo TES player were to play something like TES and get the freedom and open world with all the bells and whisltes of the single player games and then some like Naval Combat and Underwater Exploration and content , I'd bet TES fans would play ArcheAge over TESO.  Why design a MMO that the formula that has been done to death already?  Money? Sure money is nice if your going for short term, make a quality game people will but it and people will sub to it and stay it's that simple.

It looks fine to me. Some of you skyrim fanbois need to get that nerd rage under control. This game has no effect on the rest of the games, its seperate, skyrim will still be skyrim this will still be this, whatever this is going to be.

An abomination?

Now if this was a true TES MMO you would pick up that candle and drop it on his head or throw it at him :P But then again we can't have nice interactive enviroments anymore its gotta be static, lifeless and bland for the type of players that get easily confused if you let them stray off the bread crumb trail of quest hubs and loot slot machines... god forbid a world to play in oh my!!!
