    I'm certainly interested. I wonder how many years before it's finished though.

    Possibly not too long. 'developing the last several years' might be 3-4 if we're lucky - meaning it might only be 2-3 to go.

    Looking forward to it. 2-4 years from now I should be 'finishes' with TSW. :p

    Hopefully won't be to long in development, but I've got SWTOR and TSW to keep me busy.

    I don't know about this one. Elder Scrolls has a very particular flavour of high fantasy, which I am unsure will translate well into an MMO. We'll just have to wait and see, but I think this is just Bethesda...

    I..... Am somewhat nervous and skeptical about this one... Please Beth, smash my skepticism to teensy pieces...

    Bethesda RPGs and The Elder Scroll series in particular imply lots of free roaming and tons of content, but don't exactly scream "three faction pvp yo!" to me. If they go the route of the recent releases like Rift or SWTOR, i.e. 3-4 weeks of content then raid or skirmish, then I'll pass. And I will cry a lot because of them wasting their resources on crap instead of making another TES or Fallout.

    Yeah it does seem like just a massive about face for them. But they'll be pouring a lot of cash into this, so it's not like *I* need to provide any incentive for them to succeed!

    I am massively dissapointed:

    Photo Album - Imgur

    No living NPC's, no elder scrolls combat (third person hotbar combat, sounding like guild wars combat), WoW style "kill x" questing, instanced questing, no player housing, endgame raid level based progress, dungeons with "hard mode".

    Most of what made Elder Scrolls games great has essentially been stripped out to make a WoW clone in the elder scrolls world... so dissapointed.

    Wow... (hur hur). If that's legit info then that's just a big old awesome bucket of fail from me too.

    I'm not a WoW hater. I actually still like WoW. But other games.... PLEASE do your own thing! It's the WoW clones that make me vomit my colon out.

    Some screenshots. At least they didn't go Asian style again as GW2, and wow, women wear real armor and not bikinis (although I wish they got rid of the cleavage too).

    Edit: nevermind, it's the same screens as in Flintwick's post above.

    If that's true about the combat then I'll be disappointed.

    Meh. Not a very impressive trailer, to be honest. You'd think that after several years of development they'd have something more to show to perk the interest at least.

    I too have my concerns with their being able to translate the spirit of TES games over to an mmo, but I certainly have my hopes up. I plan to at the very least give this game a shot, if for no other reason than I love the universe that it's set in.

    It's the big empty space between Rift and ESO ;).
