The lights are on
Zenimax Online faces the difficult task of appeasing several different sets of expectations from gamers who come from different games and genres. Read on for how The Elder Scrolls Online aims to appeal to several different fanbases.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
World of Warcraft
Star Wars: The Old Republic
These are just a few elements of The Elder Scrolls Online that should appeal to the fanbases of various games. Fans of the franchise have a lot of questions yet to be answered, like how the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood will work in an MMO setting and how Zenimax Online is going to approximate the rich interactions with objects in the world that we’ve gotten used to since Morrowind. Nonetheless, writing off ESO as “just another MMO” or “WoW with daedra” is doing this ambitious project a grave disservice.

I'm sorry, but I haven't heard one thing about this game to make me excited about it. Being able to explore Tamriel sounds nice, sure, but there's no way I'm paying monthly for that.
People have been wanting Skyrim multiplayer, not WoW in Tamriel. Five bucks this will play and look more like WoW than Skyrim, and that is precisely the reason why I'm not interested in it.
so this is for PC only er....?
Hope it turns out to be a great game
If they copy and paste another MMO then I will look elsewhere thanks. I can't believe developers CANNOT grasp that concept.
if its just pc....im gonna have to skip. sorry
Waiting on the game play to reserve my judgement.
I like the wall of text. No bugs.
But I don't understand the Openworld PVP and how there's no lowbie ganking. Do you hit level cap everytime you try to PvP?
If the monthly fee is 12-15 dollars a month.... I probably won't get it. Fees around 8 dollars or less seems much more reasonable to me. I like WoW but refuse to play beyond their free starter edition. I guess I am just a cheap skate.
What about us DCU players?
(i also adore skyrim though)
I am very skeptical on some of these "features".
I am going to reserve judgement until more definite information is released like gameplay videos.
I want to be excited for this game but I'm just not. I hope they create something that lives up to the Elder Scrolls name. I really do.
no housing sucks
I just don't like the idea of an mmo, I would much rather prefer a giant single player adventure featuring all the lands.
