For all the people who dont know much about this game and are writing it off as another generic, mediocre mmo that will be nothing like TES, read this and maybe you will be a little more intrigued by this game:

You start the game as a prisoner of Daedric Prince Molag Bal, who has stolen your soul and is trying to drag Tamriel into Coldharbour (his plane of Oblivion) using dark anchors. Molag Bal has an agreement with the imperials of cyrodil to help him and his army of undead conquer tamriel. The main story involves you trying to stop this and get your soul back in the process. All the quest NPC's are fully voice acted and give you dialogue options when talking to them. Some NPC's even help you complete quests. IDK about you but this sounds very rich and similar to the single player games to me.

Basic gameplay mechanics are pretty much the exact same as Skyrim: Right click to attack. Hold right click to power attack. Hold left click to block. Hold left click and tap right click to do a shield bash or stun. Kill-moves are in the game (once your skill with that weapon/spell/ability reaches max level). Very non-intrusive HUD (max of six abilities on the hotbar which disappears when not in combat). Abilities and attacks dont have cooldown, instead they use up stamina and magicka just like in other TES games. Sneak is confirmed. TRUE FIRST PERSON MODE (where you can see your hands) is in the game. There is NO heat-sinking so you actually have to aim at what you are attacking. Classes are very loosely based and any class or race can use any weapon/spell/armor in the game.

There will be a crime system. So you can steal items off of tables in NPC buildings. If caught you either pay a fine or go to jail. Lockpicking is also confirmed.

You can explore the entire continent of Tamriel. You can only explore your faction's territory until you reach max level. Upon reaching max level 50 you can choose to explore and quest in one of the other two factions' territories. The quests in this territory will scale to your max level and be much more difficult, consequently giving you better loot. Once you finish everything in the second territory you can then enter the last faction's territory to explore/quest. Here is where you will find the best loot in the game.

The leveling system is very similar to that of Skyrim. When you level up you can invest one point in either health, magicka, or stamina and once point to use in a skill tree of your choice. There are also runes hidden throughout the world. Find 3 runes and you are granted one skill point to use however you want.

This is really cool and i think it definitely has a bright future in games and the fps genre especially. But it still seems several years down the road as far as it becoming a viable component for games such as Battlefield.

Good for DICE. Thats all that needs to be said.

I kind of already expected this. One of the big problems is that Sony and Microsoft are focusing more on making their consoles all-in-one family entertainment units and less on making them good for gaming, especially Microsoft from all the rumors. But hey, we've heard this complaint 1000 times now. It doesnt look too much like Sony and Microsoft actually care about the people who made their consoles popular in the first place, the gamers.

So what they really mean is, "We're not making the game run or look as good as it could because we want to wipe our @$$ with the money we make from 360 and PS3 sales."

Yes but look at any video on this site. The max rez is always 720p. That being said you would think gamespot had the money for full hd cameras.

Good. Honestly i dont wanna see the game on the current consoles since theyve pretty much reached their limit of visual and performance capability.
