News: Elder Scrolls MMO Full of fast travel greatness?
Bethesda & Game Informer to reveal more info on The Elder Scrolls Online soon. Personally I could care less. lol. I didn't like Skyrim and I didn't finish it. I like Oblivion, but did not finish that either.
May 3, 2012 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced The Elder Scrolls® Online, an MMO in development at ZeniMax Online Studios. The Elder Scrolls Online will be the first Elder Scrolls game to allow gamers to explore the legendary Elder Scrolls world with others.
The Elder Scrolls Online is being developed for PC and Mac under the leadership of industry veteran Matt Firor, who has spent the last two decades working in online game development. Details about the game are revealed in an exclusive cover story in Game Informer®’s June issue, which ships to subscribers and newsstands this month.
“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted,” said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. “It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® is the most recent title set in the award-winning Elder Scrolls universe. Skyrim, developed by Bethesda Game Studios, was released in November 2011 and enjoyed worldwide critical and commercial success. Skyrim earned hundreds of ‘Game of the Year’ awards, including top honors at the 2012 Game Developers Choice Awards, the 15th Annual 2012 Interactive Achievement Awards held at the 2012 D.I.C.E. Summit, and at the 2011 Video Game Awards. Internationally, Skyrim shipped over 10 million units within the first month of its release, was the second highest grossing title in the industry last year, and is the fastest selling title in Steam’s history.
The Elder Scrolls Online will be featured on magazine covers across Europe and in online stories in the coming months which will provide gamers with more information about this exciting title.
The Elder Scrolls Online has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
Helluva a logo. So yeah I liked everything that was going on in Oblivion, especially how you could just level up jumping. They took the jump leveling up out of Skyrim. Not that that was my problem with Skyrim. I hated that I felt like I was in loading screens more than actually playing. You've heard me say that before? Sorry. I also broke a few quests, like I could see the thing I was supposed to pick up in the ground, I could highlight, but I could never pick it up. I went back through that dungeon 3 times trying to get it. I'd deck out my partners and then they'd disappear. Probably because I was fast traveling so fast that these Jimmys couldn't keep up.
Ok seriously. I don't expect fast travel in an MMO. Warping and teleporting yes. I loved the way FFXI did it. I'll try to get more info on The Elder Scrolls Online at E3 2012. Leave comments, vote and share. Don't be a Jimmy!
