Well, at this point a few of us have gotten to experience The Elder Scrolls Online in some capacity or another, but thanks to ZeniMax Online’s crippling NDA cannot talk about it, share videos about it or anything else. That usually isn’t the sign of a game that the developer and publisher have a great deal of confidence in. I gave it a whirl this weekend after the moderately-sized 29GB download finally finished (it took, no joke, a day. I have a very good connection, too) and while I can’t really share my opinions about it, the least that I’ll say is that I’m not a MMO guy but I do love The Elder Scrolls and I’m not sure that I’ll be purchasing The Elder Scrolls Online.
Certain press outlets have been given the go-ahead to share some thoughts on The Elder Scrolls Online and, well, you’ll have to experience them for yourself. We strongly urge you to check them out if you are interested in TESO. The school of thought on TESO is that if you are an obsessive fan of The Elder Scrolls you’ll pick it up no matter what, the same if you are a huge fan of MMOs and looking for a new fix. If you are kind of iffy on MMOs and were looking for a multiplayer Skyrim this is not the game that you are looking for. Not even in the slightest.
Check out AngryJoe’s video preview of The Elder Scrolls Online and know because I’m posting it, it’s pretty close to what my thoughts were on it while playing it, but they are his thoughts, not mine.
