I'll copy exactly what I said in the public forums thread because its my opinion on this game.

Gonna be a steaming POS.

TES Quality (aswell as Bethesda quality in general) has been going down since they opened their studio.

There has never been a case when they have added more than the last game had, they cut features constantly but barely ever add any.

I loved Morrowind, it was my entire childhood basically, but even I can admit it wasn't as good as Daggerfall.

I had a bit of fun with Oblivion, but anyone could see it was like Morrowind v0.5 with new, boring questline!

Then we get to Skyrim, one of the worst RPG's of the current generation, if not THE worst RPG of the generation. Cut features like crazy from Oblivion, had entirely unlikeable characters (Seriously, atleast in Oblivion I had some characters I enjoyed) the combat was stale and boring as anything.

The only thing that made the game somewhat fun was when I tried to simply do hardcore Roleplay. Stuck to a character archetype, grew a personality for him. Then stopped playing when I realised the dialog options were balls.

A company such as Bethesda (One of the worst RPG developers of recent history, who cannot bugfix for anything) using an engine already proven to be pretty bad. In a already over-saturated market such as MMO's.

I hope this turns into another SW:TOR. No offence to current players, but that was a hilarious train crash.

Hells, its not even going to have the combat from the actual serieses its drawing itself from. May aswell make a TES private server for WoW and then leave it at that.

I won't be buying this, I will be listening to the news, and as I can already foresee, hopefully in the future enjoy reading their forums to hear the exclamations from their fanatics of a perfect 10/10 game that doesn't need bugfixes, doesn't need content, and doesn't need good writers.

Cause I already get that from Bioware's forums, but hopefully they'll be dead by the time this releases haha.

p.s. Bioware about 8-9 years ago where my favourite game devs. Now they are EVERYTHING wrong with the current video game developers.

Devs have since stated that they are not using the Hero engine. Just using that to prototype some mechanics, developing own engine for this game. Hopefully that will make this a good bi better. I would be keeping an eye on this one as information becomes available.

I hope it has player houses and playable instruments like in Lotro, i also hope it has TERA combat. I hope they release it as a f2p with a game store cause then i will hands down buy it. But for now, since it has no pre-order bonuses, imma wait until they release it as a sub based or f2p. Can't wait tho, i've been waiting for a good fantasy game with voice acting like SWTOR!

Really good read up on G4 about the game, it looks like there will be up to 25 man raids!!! thank god i really miss raiding

http://www.g4tv.com/...-elder-scrolls/

It also talks about how the main chunk of the story is really focused on single player like the other games, but you can also do them with 4 - 6 players and once you do a story, you can go back and do it again for a different part of the story.
