After spending almost 1,000 hours in the world of Skyrim, it has become very clear why gamers love this franchise but it didn’t appeal to everyone and the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online is expected to meet the needs of thousands of MMO fans.
Elder Scrolls Online is set to launch in Q2 2014, although no exact release date has been given. Fans have been treated to constant teases to keep gamers interested and to deliver insight for those dying to go hands-on.
One of the latest updates included details about the Flame Atronach and what you can expect from them in Elder Scrolls Online. We have embedded the video that came with a post on the official blog, so take a look below this article to watch that video and learn a little about the making of ESO.
Huge appeal for Elder Scrolls Online — we have been listening to feedback with each update about the game, and one article that caught our attention today can be found on the Massively section of Joystiq. The article is titled “Why I will play Elder Scrolls Online”, and as you would expect features reasons why one gamer/blogger would play the latest game from Elder Scrolls.
You can read the article in full above via the link, but what caught our attention the most were the comments below this article. There are a number of gamers that didn’t purchase Skyrim and only really like MMO games, so the news of Elder Scrolls Online and hype has made them extremely interested.
One gamer said, “I’ve never played a single Elder Scrolls game in my life, I like the games mechanics but I’m an exclusive MMO player”. They continued, “When they announced an MMO version of the franchise it fell in my radar”.
We have seen hundreds of comments stating they will play just because “it’s an Elder Scrolls title”, and then others feel their reason for playing is “because it is new and not a WoW rehash”.
These are just a couple of examples with a lot of positivity towards Elder Scrolls Online, but what are your reasons for wanting to play the game? Or are you in the minority and really aren’t interested?
In our opinion, this is a great move and ESO will relate to thousands of gamers where Skyrim didn’t. We look forward to joining you in Elder Scrolls Online, but just remember there is another real world as well. This is an issue we had with Skyrim and how it can become overpowering to other more important things. With that in-mind, we would also love to hear how you keep the balance between virtual gaming worlds and the real world? Leave a comment below.
