    i find myself asking how will this game be exectued. elder scrolls is a real time combat game, real time combat is rare in mmo's the only one i can think of right off the bat is TERA, and i know there is at least 2 more out there. but even TERA is nothing like how elder scrolls should be. and the thing is, with real time combat comes annoying lag that can totally ruin the experience. this sometimes results in entire regions being blocked from the game or if they are allowed, you get killed in every fight. this is a problem i personally faced with the few real time mmos i've played. but this most likly won't be too big an issue as say, keeping true to to what people expect from the game. it would suck monkey balls if they used traditional methods to control your character: click a target, faceroll keyboard untill dead. i feel that if they stay true with the elder scroll controls they may have to make something new that can work for mmos, something no one has any experience with

    elder scolls is also known for it's massive maps and countless dungeons, again, this is a key point where they can totally mess up. but they can also win big if they pull this aspect off right.

    i don't have hgh hopes for this game at all, but all the same i wish the devs the best luck with what they are doing.

    well now i wonder when they'll decide to throw the MMO idea at mass effect lol.

    I love Elder Scrolls. Will always be one of my top favorite game series of all time, but I'm a bit skeptical of turning it into a MMO. But I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Been reading some other "what would be good and what would be bad" videos and comments on other sites and one of the things I keep getting a kick out of is people talking about how an online version could be great because the single player version didn't have repetitive quests. Really? It didn't have repetitive quests? We must have been playing a different Skyrim because 80% of the side quests were "find this", "collect that", "kill this" and so on.

    This tangent does have a point......would be great if ESO did away with random sidequests. No more "find this", "collect that", "kill x of this". None whatsoever. If you want to level up you go into the wilderness and the thousands of random dungeons, tombs, and caves that can populate this world and kill things. You go to battle arenas and fight NPCs and other players for experience and gold. Everything else should be randomly generated or short lived instances and raids that reflect what is going on in the game world. So instead of "kill x of this" a message is sent out that a mercenary group is looking for recruits, you sign up for the mission, complete, and then are done. As a result of the mission those that weren't in the mercenary group could sign up for a quest to take revenge on the group (as in you get hunted down by another player) or complete a raid based off the last one, etc. Make it more dynamic than simply walking around and finding NPCs with exclamation marks above their head. Outside of that the game world should just revolve around the plot and wandering, so the number of quests will be low in order to encourage PvP (thief and archer classes could be a lot of fun in that sense) as you wander and the multitude of enemies to fight based on the big baddies forces running around all over the place.

    While this formula may bring less structure to the game (and possibly detract non-hard core MMO players) it would shake the formula for the genre up and that could be something even if it doesn't turn out to be a perfect product.

    Im not sure this is going to be as good as some people say it might be. What we need is a title update for Xbox/PS3 so we can have single player and multiplayer (both different selections). Single player- well, pretty self explainatory. Multiplayer- not the FULL-ON MMO like wow and the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online, but something you can play with friends. That would be nice. But if i had the chance, I would probably try this out.

    Honestly, if you're a gamer, and you have been a fan of the series, you knew this was coming eventually. But I think a lot of people are hoping or predicting this fails. We all know that Elder Scrolls is about rich advantures and deep story-lines with gorgious combat and believable characters. Now meshing that up with online capability doesn't sound too bad, but the execution of how it all is going to work will be the hard part. I'm hoping that it's something like Minecraft were people create servers and can use the Editor to build upon the game itself, kinda like how it already is. I also hope that the servers are limited like D2, where there's only up to eight or so slots, depending the server sability. I honestly don't think a massive-presistent world-like game would go well with Elder Scrolls for millions of users. It would take away that unqiue flavor that make each advanture so spontanous.... But hey, you never know. If they get this right, good for them, it's a risky move for the series.

    if it's an mmo i'll have to pass. I know they're a license to print money but I always envisioned smaller parties of 4 or 5 like any good RPG (*ahem* Monster Hunter). To me it just enhances the over all experience.

    i am not the least bit surpised to see this. i was expecting elder scrolls to get an mmo for years. my prediction, they'll totally do this half assed and it won't even get like the elder scrolls we know and love. and if we are REALLY unlucky, they'll just pour ALL of their attention on the mmo and not make and real elder scrolls anymore. meh maybe i'm being too negative just have to wait and see.

    Actually, since this game isn't being developed by Bethesda itself, it will in no way, shape, or form kill the series. They're working on dlc for Skyrim, development of Fallout 4, TES VI, etc; whereas Zenimax Online Studios is working on the MMO. Huge fan of the TES series since Morrowind, and I will be playing this.

    I do not want this. I don't want this to be released. I don't want this to be continued. It will ruin the elder scrolls series and bring those creatures that currently play WoW to a decent game series and kill another great series of games.
