E3 2015: The Elder Scrolls’ TCG; ESO’s Orsinium, Imperial City

The downside of E3 pre-conferences coming earlier and earlier is that the event just gets longer and longer, but the upside is that you can find out some pretty neat stuff ahead of time. Bethesda held a pre-E3 event yesterday, and it contained some pretty fascinating information for players of The Elder Scrolls Online, including video of the Imperial City and Orsinium, both slated for release to players this year.

The former is covered with vicious monstrosities eager to counter any player efforts to venture into the fallen capital, whilst the latter spreads across multiple zones, from ominous mountains to underground structures. This is in line with a tweet from earlier this year stating these additions to the game would be seen before the year was out.

The news is just in time for the UK to crown Elder Scrolls Online #1 on the retail charts, making it the third game in 2015 to muster 100,000 sales in its opening week.

There’s also a new card game, The Elder Scrolls Legends, that looks to be Hearthstone but draws on the franchise set in Tamriel instead. Check out the trailers below.

Massively Overpowered is on the ground in Los Angeles, California, for E3 2015, bringing you expert MMO coverage from NCsoft, Blizzard, Ubisoft, BioWare, and everything else on display at the expo!

pcgneurotic G2A keys usually are only dodgy without G2A shield in use as most keys given with that on end up being legitimate that part of what G2A shield is all about. Ive never had any of my keys revoked with G2A purchases and Ive been buying from them for 2 years now, brought around about 10-15 games from there.

Unless you brought from a random vendor to find the cheapest price available on the site of course (most of those ones are dodgy)

as for the game itself if you’ve only played for a week then that explains your reaction, a week simply doesnt cut it and if it was the most singleplayer MMO ever then neither of you have clearly been to craglorn, note I dont disagree it has problems and im no fanboy of the game, I enjoy it but i dont fanboy it..but honestly it gets more flak than it deserves and half the time the people complaining are people who come from older games, they keep saying ESO is dying yet its only kept getting bigger, the minority will always be the loudest. Which is why i never use the ESO forums.

Werewolf Finds Dragon The Bretons are not even close to British. They where based loosely
on 2 cultures. The Bretons and the Picts. Both are from the same area
basically. Which was mainly France.
Orcs, really? They
are fleshed out. They are based off the Mongols and are dedicated
worshipers of Malacath. They have just as much lore as any other race
really.

AvatarOP SoMuchMass Lord Zorvan Please don’t call it a Skyrim IP…. it’s not. Skyrim is 1 part in a series of parts called Elder Scrolls. Using your words… “hidden behind a TES (The Elder Scrolls) IP.

I have mixed feelings about TESO. I bought it and played it for about a week recently, before Zenimax revoked my key (it was one of those dodgy G2A keys). I felt like it wasn’t really a fifty-Euro-plus game, but that it certainly could be with another year or two. I mean, it LOOKS like a 50-Euro-plus game, but doesn’t always play like it. There’s lots and lots to love about it, for sure, but sometimes it feels a bit… undernourished. As someone else said here, ‘it’s the most single-player MMO ever’. If they knocked the box price down to something more affordable, I would buy it again and reactivate my account. I would even probably end up spending in the Crown store. But at its current RRP, it’s just not worth it (imho).

Werewolf Finds Dragon I guess that is an opinion.  I hated the AD zones, loved Daggerfall Covenant.  When I created my console character he was in DC even though I played that faction on PC.

JimGriffiths hardy83 And LoN was a clone of AutoAssault TCG. The MMO <-> TCG connection was made long before Blizzard did it.

But, you know, for a while every digital, portable media player was an iPod.

salidar Not the first. LoN was based off and made by the people behind AutoAssault TCG, from the MMORPG with the same name.

hardy83 Haha, I know right? Gwent at this point is a copy of Hearthstone for the proles.
