Clunky animations and combat-check. Dark gritty atmosphere and character models-check.
Well, it looks like Elder Scrolls game to me, with all it's virtues and flaws. ES fans should be pleased.
I'm having a problem with the view-modes. Previous Elder Scrolls games work best in 1st person view but for an MMO I just can't see it being the best choice. Most of the time in Skyrim you are attacking 1 monster at a time so it is easy enough, but with multiple mobs and having to move around a lot quicker (especially in a dungeon with a group) is seems your view is at a disadvantage - and what about PVP? I don't want to have to switch between the 2 views, especially cuz 3rd person view in the previous games sucked, and looks the same here. I dunno...at first an Elder Scrolls MMO sounded really cool, but I am beginning to think it is a bad mix...
It's funny, I know the game has "realistic" graphics and EQ Next has "cartoon" graphics. But after watching the EQ Next stuff this definitely game off as much more bland. EQ Next just has such a high fantasy feel about it the world just looked gorgeous and the animations by far were much smoother.
I still think it looks pretty good and I like the idea of an Elder Scrolls game but online so I will almost certainly check it out at launch. The animations definitely look really stiff though. Moreso than Skyrim I would say.
Suprisingly impressed, actually like the first person view mechanic. Makes you feel much more immersed and involved.
Really cant believe I am actually looking somewhat forward to this now....
Jesus Christ, why must they highlight the target in red. We are not simple minded fools that need to be shown what we are hitting. GW2, NW, and now this......please stop the dumbing down of games.
huh, not bad, not bad.. reminds of Age of Conan somehow.
but can I turn off the glowing outlines?
Yep, game looks like crap. Poor animations, graphics are on the low side, combat is vastly limited as expected for a console hybrid. It is whats expected, a money grab.
Youtubers said it best with "Instant travel, very little group-dynamics, very shallow combat, 7 skills.....this? looks like the most superficial MMO I can imagine." and "the action and combat seem so dissapointing for it to be an mmo... 1st person looks like a single? player game... Third person looks like a really bad action game".
Same as Doc, when they showed the char.creation screen I thought for a sec they launched the wrong video :) it's exactly AoC's character creation (without the slave ship ofc).
And I loved both the pr & marketing guy's intro and creative dir. Sage's background speech - more precisely what was missing... Firor's vision :) I mean, there were no changes obviously in the game so it's only pr-talk, but during the whole video there was maybe 1 mention of pvp and just a short one of factions (during the lore), on the other hand it was full with ES history, former ES games, fps view, ES game just online this time, you can play with your buddies, a PvE dungeon, etc.
Seems the uproar of the ES fanbase finally reached their ears :) Sage even said in the end "next to the ES saga and follower of Skyrim". If only they'd develop it with that mindset from the beginning...
Ummm... they felt confident in showing this to the public?!?!?
that looked awful. The combat and animations were horrendous alpha test quality... cant believe they decided to show this to fans. and did you hear the lukewarm applause? felt like everyone in the crowd was looking at each other saying, "ewww this looks bad".
What many western mmo's completely fails at is the characters and animations, they are just downright horrible, and tbh this looks like a clunky and poorly done.
Character animations is one of the mostimportent core aspects of an mmo it's what brings the quality and the feeling of high production, something this game completely fails at.
Notice how he constantly zooms in to 1st person to hide the shitty animations.
I think on papar this mmo could have rocked me from my socks.
Then you see how low polygon everything is :(
The horse the bow, the character itself. even the character creatior seems half asses :(
Dont know if they need to do this for the console ?
lets hope we can mod this game with ENB series :)
nice. another 6 button game.
screw console mmos. seriously.
