    massively multiplayer online


    Stopped reading there, not going to play. It will be subscription or microtransaction based and honestly, both of those models suck.

    They started working on this one in 2008, back when the MMO market was still booming. Bioware started making TOR in 2006. Bad luck for both of them, but that's what happens when you invest in something with such a crazy lag.

    It's being developed by ex-Mythic folks, so lol about actually buying it. Slapping Elder Scrolls paint on a typical Mythic also-ran MMO isn't my idea of a fun time. I just hope they didn't spend a lot of money on it.

    There is a leak article from Gameinformer but I won't post it here because I believe that violates forum rules, so you'll have to poke around on your own

    Graphics definately lost their grittyness which is laaaameeee

    I couldn't be any less enthused about this idea. I can't ever really see Elder Scrolls being fun as a multiplayer game, in general.

    I agree. i guarantee 100% it's just going to be "another crappy mmo™"

    it won't have any dignifying features, or at least not enough to warrant playing it for obscene amounts of time. which, you know, EVERY mmo does require.

    I'd be 100% suprised if this isn't a huge flop

    Its already been said combat's 3rd person, hotkey based, and that there will be a class system.

    Pretty much the whole essence of elder scrolls series was vaporized this way. What's likely to survive its predecessors are tons of bugs, cave-crawling and bad graphics.

    I'm guessing the gameplay will change too much for me to enjoy it. I could see a multi-player Elder Scrolls working as a COOP game, but once you start with the PvP then you have to setup massive protected zones to prevent griefing and spawn killing. It will be WoW set in the Elder Scrolls universe.

    psst. They aren't apart of TES future [sic]. Because it's going to tank hard, and because it's not a real TES game anyway.

    About something nobody ever said. Ever.

    Nobody called Couchman stupid for believing the rumors about an Elder Scrolls MMO. I checked. All we said is that it would be stupid for Zenimax to do it. There's an important difference.

    and the story sounds like it's just "shoehorn in a daedric prince doing bad things" instead of making use of some existing part of the series lore... like i dunno the Akaviri invasion of Morrowind
