Welcome to next week's headline across the gaming community.

Regardless of the state of the recently revealed game or its ability to stand on it's own as an MMO, the development team has departed significantly from the features that characterized previous Elder Scrolls games and has resulted in a backlash from the fan base.

With the leak of some detailed information on game play, many have begun to wonder if the title of Elder Scrolls Online should be replaced with something more fitting a traditional MMO "Based upon the lore of the Elder Scrolls Series".

At a time when most MMO's benifit from exciting announcments, ESO is already being heralded as a falure for lack of vision. This appears to be the most negatively received "reveal" in the history of the modern MMORPG.         
 

As long as they are developing a game with gameplay along the lines of |Elder scrolls they can do what they like as far as I am concerned.

As long as they don't pander for minorities and actually develop an MMO and not an arena game in the guise of all will be fine.

This is so true but many hate to admit it.....

Is that specific enough now?

And its not "Bethesdas first MMO" which i quoted in my response, if you wouldn't have selectively quoted me, this would be clear to everyone that can read.

Honestly? Will be like the other MMOs released lately, will make a ton of cash to the developers, will lose some players later, will remain there with probably enough players so they do enough cash to keep it up and profit well from it. *Shrugs*

Who like TES singleplayer will hate it to death, who don't care about TES single player will probably try it if they can provide the PvP they promised.

I am usually the silent part of the gamers, rarely i post on forums i mean.. look my post count.. i posted more on TESO then in years...

But is how it works , i think is impossible to deny, it will make a lot of cash at start  and probably enough to keep it profitable.

I hope they continue to develope TES single player and.. eh peace, they said will be mostly like any other MMO around, third person , hotbar and all that jazz, no amount of blue faces is going to change that, not that i like it but i guess, the next time i have 100 million dollars to spend i'll try to found a TES project how i like it...

If we are going by the info available it says he is overseeing Lore and Geography and nothing more. So... they are pretty much being used as consultants and only on those 2 aspects. So yes... they are involved, whether you find this involvment significant is up to you.

I mean thats like saying the Military developed or helped develop the CoD series because Hank Keirsey was the military advisor for many of the CoD games.

What they needed was a co-op mode for skyrim.

What we are going to get is a WoW clone.  Or at least that is what the head exec's probably ordered...  Lets hope that someone down the line has the senses to make a unique quality game and the sneakiness to get that past the CEOs and $$-eyed board members.

Don't worry, I won't say I told you so when ESO sinks along with <GAAAAASP>:

Final Fantasy XIV

Star Trek Online

And every other "WoW-killer" or MMO that was forced to go F2P to save itself from sinking.

I would definitely play an Elder Scrolls MMO.

I will not play a generic MMORPG no matter how many words are different from other generic MMORPGS 's words for stories and lore.

 

"Typical mmorpg" this, "can't change mmorpg formula" that, all bullshit. I am definitely done with MMORPG's with the way things are (not) developing, the only entertainment they give come from their accompanying forums.

TES died with Oblivion. Skyrim was ok but ultimately shallow when you got through the gloss. Dumbed down console-friendly mechanics, invisible walls, cliche storyline.

While it's impossible to say how the MMO will be recieved by the market, expect another safe mainstream title. Throw lore out the window, an MMO will always butcher it.

It doesn't sound too good.

But this might be a sleeper hit.

They took an old broken down ford focus, stole a mercedes emblem from down the street slapped it on the focus.

I agree.  The elderscrolls games have been deviating from its freedom of choice roots since Oblivion (IMO).  Im not sure if this is more noticable because im an oldschool elderscrolls fan who has been playing these games since their inception. Regardless this decline in player choices, simplifying of classes and skills and the overall omission of some very unique features is not a new movement with this IP in particular. 

With this in mind, the direction that the ESO appears to be taking doesn't really come as that huge of a letdown for me. I have seen this decline in the works for a while. It is just an admission that developer focus has shifted over the years and for me, not in a positive way.

Did you prefer the hit and block dice rolls of Morrowind?  Oblivion changed that for the better, IMO.  No the combat still isn't great, but its better than Morrowind, IMO.  Skyrim improved on that a bit, but still has a long ways to go.  And lastly, while Skyrim has its share of criticisms, I'm not sure invisible walls is one of them.  Sure there might be a few here and there, or at the boundaries of the game, but Skyrim can not reasonable be criticized for that at all.  Now Amalur Reckoning; THERE's a game with invisible walls...
