As a long fan of TES I shrugged when I saw that this game was about to be released with the SWTOR engine. I doomed it and was certanly not interested in the game, whatsoever.
After I saw a few videos today and got a little more information about the game today my interested is growing. It seems, despite that SWTOR is heavily instanced, which truly suck, that ESO will be open world. Never thought that. I am so happy to see that I was totally wrong there. The other thing I find very interesting is the plan for mass scale PvP. This brings the PvP in an MMO up to a totally new level. It's a great bonus to the game that they are trying to implement the same feeling to combat as we are used to from TES series; even though I am a good keybinder and easily memorizes 30-40 keybindings I would like a more action paced approach to the game where I feel more "in" the combat in opposite to combat systems like the one in LOTRO where I feel "out of control" of my toon due to it's lame "induction" time and barely none instant skills.
If this game really delivers and live up to it's expectations I would definately consider buying this. It has risen from "absolutely not" to a good "maybe". A good help to this was I began smiling when I saw stuff in the videos that resembled both Skyrim and Oblivion which made me continue seeing more. In either case, I think this game will make or break when it comes to the PvP part, since they seem very serious about this. If they can pull this mass scale PvP off, ESO might be a bigger hit than anyone would dream of when it was listed here on MMORPG.com. What if this game rised up to be a big hit like WoW? Despite it was butchered so bad in beginning that it seemed doomed to fail due to it's incredible bad ratings; ESO was just not welcomed at all. That would be quite shocking! It is the first time I have seen a games rating climbing up so high after being rated to the bottom, and still it seem rising higher as the game moves forward to it's release.
I will definately continue to follow this game ("finally" had a look into it today only cause I was bored), cause the standards they have set for this game is sky high. Even I doubt they will be unable to deliver the same feeling overall for the game as I were playing a TES game, but the PvP plans for ESO really caugth my attention since it's my main interest when I play them MMO's.
Well I have to give Elder Scrolls Online another re-review in it's "hype" here. Let's hope it delivers. Thank you all for reading.
