Elder Scrolls Online Website; Trailer

The Elder Scrolls Online Website is online as home to the just-revealed MMO installment in Bethesda's RPG series. This is more-or-less a placeholder at the moment, but it does offer an announcement trailer bringing the game's logo into view following a dramatic buildup. No gameplay or cinematics are included, but there is also now a new screenshot on the Bethesda Blog.

I love how everyone is shitting all over this game before they even see a screenshot of descent quality and gameplay.

What's a screenshot or a video of some guy swinging a sword going to tell me that an article with actual facts does not? We already know, without resorting to any speculation at all, that this game has almost nothing in common with the TES series gameplay-wise.

We aren't pulling our disappointment out of our ass this time, though admittedly that goes on a lot around here so I can't blame you for assuming that.

No, I'm pretty sure it's being pulled out of asses.

It's your prerogative, though. I'd rather see how the game plays and at least get a description of the game as designed before crapping on a dev team's work.

But that's just me.

Have you not read the Game Informer preview? It has quite a few screenshots showcasing the cartoony art style. It also describes the lack of first-person perspective and the hotbar-based, non-real-time combat. Also, the freeform leveling system has been replaced with a class-based system. First-person perspectives, real-time combat, realistic visuals and freeform leveling are defining elements of the ES series and the MMO does not have them.

From what I saw and read in the GI preview, ES Online is just another generic fantasy MMO with the Elder Scrolls brand tacked on.
