Fans have demanded an online version of Elder Scrolls for many years now, and knowing that the multiplayer edition will finally be released is great news for fans of the franchise. April will see the release of the Windows PC and OS X versions, while those of you with a PS4 and Xbox One have to wait until June, although in that time gamers will be able to gauge a reaction from Elder Scrolls Online reviews.
Since its announcement we have seen many claims on how Elder Scrolls Online will compare to other MMORPG’s, but the latest does seem a bit out there, as they believe that the former will be a WoW killer.
This is such a huge claim, one that this article tries to back up, but then we have seen such claims before from the likes of Samsung and HTC when they say that one of their new smartphones will be an iPhone killer. We know that the Galaxy S4 and HTC One have seen impressive sale, but they are still no iPhone killer in terms of sales.
Elder Scrolls Online vs. WoW — Comparing these two games is silly because they cater for different audiences. World of Warcraft already has its legions of fans because the game has been out for such a long time. Elder Scrolls Online has to start from scratch and try to persuade a new generation of gamers, although they should be able to count on the millions of fans of the Elder Scrolls series.
Personally, I believe that WoW has nothing to worry about because Elder Scrolls Online already has a mountain to climb, and that is persuading gamers to pay a one-off fee for the game itself along with paying a monthly subscription fee. Having said that, Many World of Warcraft players have said that the game is starting to show its age now, so could this play a part in the success of ESO?
