Official The Elder Scrolls Online Announcement

This press release officially announces The Elder Scrolls Online, the just-revealed MMOG. The announcement offers a bit more on the game:

Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced The Elder Scrolls® Online, an MMO in development at ZeniMax Online Studios. The Elder Scrolls Online will be the first Elder Scrolls game to allow gamers to explore the legendary Elder Scrolls world with others.

The Elder Scrolls Online is being developed for PC and Mac under the leadership of industry veteran Matt Firor, who has spent the last two decades working in online game development. Details about the game are revealed in an exclusive cover story in Game Informer®'s June issue, which ships to subscribers and newsstands this month.

"We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted," said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. "It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made - and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise."

Im done moving from MMO to MMO. SWTOR was the last. As I played it I realized that they are all the same at the core. There is nothing truly new, and without that its just more of the same.

Yeah, there are almost no companies trying anything different. For example, CCP has carved out a little niche for themselves with EVE and eventually World of Darkness in terms of player-driven sandbox games with narrow but dedicated appeal, but if those aren't your speed all thats left are a bunch of WoW clones that only vary by a few degrees.

There needs to be more companies trying to fill a niche besides just one doing spreadsheets in space.

But no, lets keep releasing shitty fantasy games that are fundamentally identical and designed to be playable by retards too stupid to breathe.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
