I've been playing the Elder Scrolls Online Beta for months now and have a whole week-end to dive deep into it.

I love how on the Inet all you see is negative bull shit for anything xbox one, including the Elder Scrolls Online. Some have said the graphics are not impressive or washed out on the PC Beta. I can say for a certainty that this is indeed not the case. The Elder Scrolls Online has the best graphics out of any MMO I have ever played and is very much up there with single player games. This is quite a feat considering the size of the game world and it being an MMO.

I have to say this game is so immersive and interesting that I have a hard time putting it down. I loved all the other Elder Scroll games like Skyrim, Oblivion, Morrowind and others but I needed a rest from them and had to stop playing at times. Not this one. I just want to continue exploring, questing, leveling my character and now interact with other players. In my opinion, this is the end all beat all RPG game of all time! .. well until the next great game comes along. Very Happy Wink

Is it that funny?

When I was playing alot of PC with steam a guy who had like 1000+ hours with skyrim told me it was terrible. It was too small of a world and you could see people everywhere and it was too packed.

Oh, and one thing I don't like about it is the pay every month membership. I believe that If you buy a game you should be allowed to play it for as long as you want and whenever you want without paying for it every month.

It's interesting with the elder scrolls online though. I'm excited to hear what people have to say about it and I wonder if it's gonna blow up. Skyrim was a big hit so the sales numbers for elders scrolls online will probaly be big also.

Too small a world?? It's like 10 times bigger than Skyrim. Sounds like he hasn't played lately. Is it different? yes, It's an MMO so things are different.

What I don't like so far and this is BETA is that like in Morrowind, Skyrim and Oblivion there are tons of loot to find with all sorts of value and meaningfulness. So far finding loot is nearly meaningless in The Elder Scrolls Online. I want this to be just like Skyrim but I believe they may have to tone down all the potential items in the world. Like shelves are loaded with lots of individual items in Skyrim. Not here, very few things exposed to the game environment.

I am hoping they can make this closer so how it is in Skyrim

Ah, I've just heard from the guy I met so I haven't had the experience of playing myself yet. 10x bigger than Skyrim is pretty.. massive though.

Can you trade with other people though? Can you kill other players? I haven't looked into it that much but player connection is pretty important.

How do you guys feel about the whole pay to play idea? Pretty silly really especially for Xbox Live. It should be free.

Yes you can trade with others. You can not just go up to other players and kill them which is a good thing since that would suck if just starting out. I have not experienced the multiplayer aspects yet except for seeing people running all over the place.

There's of course, real time chat and you can walk up to anyone to see about them, ask to join group or have them join you but that's all I've seen so far. There is this whole massive war thing going on too with player vs player but I know nothing about it right now.

In many ways the game feels unfinished but then it is only beta right now. Also I don;t know that it's 10 times the size of Skyrim but it has many more parts of Tamriel instead of just one section like Skyrim. My guess is that is is currently 2 times the size of Skyrim and will grow over time. this is an MMO after all. The thing is you join a faction and start in their territory so you can't just go everywhere at first is my impression.

I hate pay to play model but if the MMO is good enough then... so what. This is The Elder Scrolls after all

Should the xbox live fee cover it? I say no. The MMO fee is by the publisher and specifically so the game can be continually invested in, improved and expand in the future. Xbox Live fee is only about $5 per month and takes care of the super high quality we have come to expect for all things xbox live. How can the xbox live fee be useful for 3rd party development and still take care of all the servers and quality of xbox live? Well it can't because it is too low of a fee.
