and that's a good point.

Here is the ordinator armor from Morrowind. It just looks better. I'm not talking about "high definition textures" or "how many polygons". I'm talking design.


other than the armor being a little more colorful, i don't see a huge difference honestly.

It looks and feels like ES, if anyone says otherwise they should get a new graphics card and monitor... just saying.

Agreed. Except High Elves are not as butt-ugly with their deformed, disproportionate facial features they had in Skyrim. They now look like they do with some of the better HD mods out for Skyrim. I think I actually might play one now :)

You Obviously haven't played many elder scrolls games because that is exactly how some dark elf armor looks in previous elder scrolls titles. And this screenshot is over a year old.

From the screens and videos I've seen, the environments look nice enough but the player models seem kind of meh.

And I don't mean the engine they're using, just the art style, the way the modeled everything.  Also, some of the animations seemed a bit... over the top for an Elder Scrolls game maybe?

No offense but it's a thousand times better then something like Wildstar.  Also the art direction is fine, esoecially considering they are shooting for 200 people being rendered on screen at one time.  Personal opinion but I like how it looks, feels very elder scrolls'y.  My only complaint is they are not including a Dye system for armor.

You have to be blind if you think the animation are good in this game or some of the character models. Let's hope you don't get into beta "everything's fine" is not the type of beta tester this game needs.

You see everything is fine because I have been playing MMO's long enough to understand there is certain give and takes involved when you're talking about translating something from a single player experience to a multi-player experience. 

 

Of course it doesnt look EXACTLY like Skyrim, it can't.  But of course your prolly one of those guys who bitches because "OMFG I can't place buckets over Vendors and rob them blind".  Narrow mindedness is 1 of the greatest complaints I have with gamers, especially considering MMO players.  And you sir are high on that list!

Looks like they're coming along in the animation department to me.

Environment looks good and the character models so far are ok. Not overly excited about them but compared to other games they are passable.

It's the level of detail that says "ordinator armor".

Take the helmet off the the eso version and it looks pretty generic.

The actual armor has the upper arm portions, the design on the pauldrons, the fauld which looks like it comes from a Samurai design. Draping of the cloth, the designs etched in all the pieces.
