The Elder Scrolls Online Announcement Negatively Received By Fans


In a time where next generation MMORPG’s are being hyped to the max Zenimax Studios announces The Elder Scrolls Online, the game most of us have dreamed of but noone have dared to hope for yet. The initial reaction by the fans was of course joy as The Elder Scrolls is the most well known series in the RPG genre. But as news and leaks flooded the internet joy soon turned into a massive uproar as it became known TES Online would be more like a Warcraft-style themepark than the open world realistic sandbox game most had hoped for.

As one of the few things we yet know TES Online will run on the HERO Engine (SWTOR) and this only removes the thought of a Skyrim like world. Further yet the game will feature hotbars, no real-time fighting and everything that has been revealed so far points to a wanna-be World of Warcraft MMO.

And in these next generation times where gamers have proved to be longing for innovation, there will be no space for a game like TES: Online which does not innovate but looks to be just another game with nearly no resemblance to the original series. The massive uproar on the mmorpg.com forums and more speaks for itself.
