Elder Scrolls Online video demonstrates freedom and choice

Do you like freedom? Do you like choices? Well, of course you do; you’re a living person, not RoboTron 2010. Elder Scrolls Online purports to love both of these as well, which will make you best buddies in the future (or so the marketing hopes go).

In a new video, ESO gives a rundown of the core features of the game, playing heavily to the choices in story, character creating, adventuring, crafting, and endgame progression. It’s also a good primer for someone who has never heard of an MMO and may be puzzled as to what makes it different from a traditional RPG.

Check out the new video after the break and let us know what you think of it!

The FREEDOM to level from 1-50 in a totally linear fashion within your faction’s area.  The CHOICE to level from VR1-VR14 by doing the totally linear quests of the other faction’s (your hated enemies!) areas, or maybe even grinding out mobs forevaa!  I’m enjoying ESO for sure at the moment but I’m not sure it is the best example out there of freedom and choice, the champion system is a nice change though so who knows maybe they’re still figuring stuff out.

bryanjturner Controls? Can’t be worse than the other Elders Scrolls games, surely.

I’ve seen a bunch of people complaining about they’re marketing to the wrong crowd like wow lovers… Idk to me I can’t wait for June 9th I loved the video.

bryanjturner How can you complain about the controls when you play GW2? They both have the limited number of abilities you can use at the same time, along with other games like Neverwinter and The Secret World. 

The lack of a minimap is part of the sense immersion they’re trying to impart, like the other Elder Scrolls games they’ve made and that have made them over a billion in sales – which you’re apparently unfamiliar with.
Your complaints may have had some merit a year ago. But to complain that this game is like an early Alpha is just ridiculous.

I just wasted $60 on this steaming pile of dogs**t!!!!!  The controls are completely counter intuitive to any one that’s played an MMO within the past 10 years, hell you don’t even get a Mini Map!  I just posted a thread on Steam demanding a refund, if I don’t get some official confirmation I’m calling my bank to fight the purchase regardless if it wrecks my Steam account, I am literally that angry about this.  This game feels like it should be in an early stage of Alpha FFS.

This game doesn’t have wide freedom of/and choice, but come on guys, it definitely DOES have more than most themepark MMOs. That counts, IMO. You can very well skip whole zones and questlines, go in all different directions, and you’ll be OKAY. That counts.  That all said, this video is still full of BS and it’s kinda sad it was even made.

Werewolf Finds Dragon I am not a sandbox fan – I am currently  playing FFXIV. My first comment still stands true of its sarcastic purpose.

It’s obvious to me that this is designed with a console audience in mind. Remember that this may well be the greatest MMO to ever come to a console and there are a ton of console players that have never set foot in an MMO. Add to that the sheer size of the ES console audience and I completely understand why the video is rendered as it is.
I guess I would have to get a console only players point of view on it, but likely you won’t find that here.
Yes. We are not the target audience.

I have to wonder if you actually play this game. There are three factions and three storylines….
