OP  6/06/12 6:43:32 AM#1

During this week's E3 convention, our team had the opportunity to check out a developer presentation about Zenimax Studios' The Elder Scrolls Online. We've got a lot to say about one of the most hotly discussed games of the recent past. Check it out and then let us know what you think!

Elder Scrolls Online is the kind of thing MMO gamers have been dreaming of since Morrowind landed on the RPG scene years ago. "A long time coming" doesn't begin to cover it. Finally, after years of speculation and lots of doubting Thomases, ESO was announced and the gaming world ate up every bit of info they could get their hands on. Then, almost as quickly as you can say "Arrow to the Knee" the fan backlash began to surface. "It uses the Hero Engine!" (No, it doesn't.) "It's not Elder Scrolls enough!" (Yes, actually it is.) "It will be WoW all over again." (Not even a sliver of a chance.) After our presentation from Game Director Matt Firor (of Dark Age of Camelot fame), we quickly became believers in Zenimax Online's vision for the MMO version of Tamriel. No, it really won't be Skyrim Online. But that's okay.

Nice article, Bill.  It gives a better picture of what ESO is and isn't.

There are design choices that I wish had been different, but I also realize that it's very important how they fit the elements and systems together.

"Is it Skyrim Online? No. Is it Elder Scrolls Online? Most definitely."

 

I hear ya Bill, but If it's not Skyrim Online I will not be playing it. Sorry man, the industry already has crap like this. Way too much of it...

 

Skyrim was the last of TES to have come out. So the online game has to be on par with that. Just like Ultima Online was. You can't go backwards and half ass a clone of all the garbage that is already out that noone wants to play longer than a month.

 

Skyrim Online would be new and fresh. Anything less will be "meh - I have seen this, done this, no thanks".

:(

Nice write-up, Bill. I've never been a big fan of ES, but some of the mechanics here sound interesting.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

Nice previews, expect for 1 thing. So, an mmo is social now because it has open world dungeons and pvp and you can help other players? So, other mmos aren't social, because that's already there. Pretty sure a bunch of people rp'ing in the middle of town, getting to know each other, etc is a far more social event than people zerging an open world boss without wanting to even look each other in the face.

Yeah, the only way to create a truely socialable mmorpg is to simply provide no rules, and let the players govern themselves. AKA sandbox - UO, Shadowbane, EvE Online, Darkfall etc and now DayZ (which is an experimental FPS mod for f's sake! lol)

 

You cannot have natural socialism in a themepark game. Everyone just waits in line to ride the next ride. Pretty much keeping to themselves, unless a "group ride" (mob boss instance) becomes available, then they are forced into talking/interacting with each other for an hour or so to get the gear/item drop. lol

 

And from what I have read/heard on the podcast, TESO looks to be nothing more than a cloned themepark game, no matter how they keep spinning it not to be. :(

 

I wish planning/development of TESO would have started after DayZ came out. Perhaps it would have motivated the producers to take slightly different direction....producers/investors would KILL to have the crowd playing DayZ right now...we are talking MAJOR numbers here, and they are not backing down, only growing...

 

I am predicting the DayZ experiment will inspire some truely awesome mmporpgs to form up in the next few years. Least I hope so. If I read correctly, DayZ will be an official map/gametype bundled with Arma III. And if that happens, Arma III will be the best selling game of 2013. And it's not even a mmorpg!

 

People need to wake up. Cloning item grinding themeparks over and over again is slowly staking the term "mmorpg" deep into the ground. Outside of Blizzard, there is no money/future in it at the moment. It needs to take a rest/break. It's way too played out. Grow a set of balls and create something new. Selling out is lazy. :D

Nice article but design choice will be its ultimate failure. No way you can take an Elder Scrolls ip and mesh it in as a theme park mmo. It needs to stay single player with freedom or add a 4 player coop.  We need a Skyrim Online instead of this.

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

6/06/12 9:20:50 AM#14

This sounds interesting. I like the trend towards having fewer active skills at any given time. 40+ keybinds is just ridiculous. I also like the open world wandering around bit. That sounds right at least. So it's still a themepark, but it's not WoW.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Sounds great. Reading stuff like this really allows you to ignore each one of the million "TESO is a WoW clone waah waah"-threads :) This and the fact that this game will have 3 factions really makes it sound nice, on paper at least.

Would love to get a hold of how the game will work! A faction system? based after skyrim?! to many questions!

All hail the Barn Owl! oh.. and the RED SQUIRREL!!!

I'd love to say I'm happy but I don't trust smirks, smiles, and coy responses from company heads. We had plenty of them from the WAR and SWTOR heads and look how that turned out. When I see it in game, I'll believe it.

I'm ok with parks but without sandbox elements and SOME forced social interaction this will just be another clone that gets a big launch response then goes ftp in a few short months. How can I say that having seen so little, because it's following the EXACT same path as Rift, SWTOR, WAR, Aion.

Step 1. CG trailers with no gameplay and lots of "innovative" promises.

Step 2. Promise more and more but show nothing.

Step 3. Talk about how you didn't try to make a WOW clone (despite it being one) then talk about how you expect to get many WOW players (despite not "trying" to appeal the them) and talk about how your MMO will have 5-10 mill subs at launch.

Step 4. Talk about 1 innovative feature that has already been done (WAR-PVP!!!, SWTOR-STORY!!!) and claim to have done it better or for the first time.

Step 5. Fend off rumors of beta players hating the game, promise more but still show nothing.

Step 6. Launch, flop, blame the Avengers 2 movie.

Step 7. Fire people. Go ftp and claim it's the correct model for the current state of the industry.

Step 8. After a few years close said MMO and blame the economy (never yourself).

Lets see if they right the ship or continue down this path.

WAR and SWTOR never claimed they'd have 3 factions. Or limited abilities at a time and more action oriented combat. Or weapon based abilities. Or public dungeons. Or more freedom in character progression.

 

If you thought WAR or SWTOR had much differences outside their "one awesome innovative thing" you were living under delusions. It's not my opinion, this is a fact. TESO promises something different on core level mechanics and beyond that, WAR nor SWTOR never did it. Facts, not opinions.

Meh, the day pure sandbox MMOs become all that's in store will be the day I might stop playing MMOs. I already have to deal with other people power tripping in real life (politics, competition, business, etc) to subject myself to yet another form of lawless-palooza in a game that's supposed to make me relax and have fun.

Something in between would be nice.

Agreed. Something inbetween would be perfect. But outside of EvE (which is a weird gaming platform), it's never been done (least in a standard platform). Producers either cater too much to the themepark, or too much to the sandbox. And one side gets left out. It takes major brain power (and balls lol) to pull something like this off. No doubt.
