Excited about Elder Scrolls Online’s upcoming foray into the Clockwork City? This mechanical metropolis is coming “a little later this year,” offering a new zone, plenty of quests, and the intriguing transmutation system. New maps are on on display as well, and the whole thing should hit the test server this week.

This past weekend, the team took players on a visual tour of the Clockwork City in all of its gearpunk majesty. The tour is conducted by Writer-Designer Leamon Tuttle and Lead Content Designer Jeremy Sera. Check it out after the break!

This game has one of the most divided communities of any mmo i’ve ever seen though. You have the TES lovers then the mmo lovers. And they don’t seem to mix to good now. And Zos is not doing anything to improve this. Probably why some many people can only take so much of the game at a time.

As both a TES lover and an MMO lover, I really can’t stand playing this game.

I hate it and I love it.

Nice, can’t wait to meet Sotha Sil. I hope is not overpriced though, the map doesn’t seem too big.

After watching the stream I’m quite looking forward to it. Without spoiling anything I like the way in which you enter the zone, its actual location and its geology :D

Hate to be a cynical ‘Debbie Downer’ here, but it seems to me that the recent Morrowind expansion came and went like a summer cloud, without much fanfare.

I tried ESO twice, but as much as I wanted to love it I could not get into it. For me the questing was boring, the combat nothing special, and the player avatars looked dreadful.

I used to think Bethesda could do no wrong before ESO and Fallout 4. How the mighty have fallen, sighs.

Dunno, the Morrowind expansion is what drew me into ESO. There was so much nostalgia there and I still have fun exploring Vvardenfel. I guess its one of those things that people have differing opinions on.

Well said man. Although ESO was not my cup of tea, I can totally respect your tactfully worded comment and why you like the game.

Cheers.

Well, you are in the minority, but that’s fine. To each their own. I’ve been playing since beta, and it’s busier now that it has ever been. From what I gather in game and on other forums, Morrowwind was received very well. I’m not sure what you mean by boring questing, or your other commentary. I’m guessing you are just making potshots, because people that actually play the game comment often on how the dialogue and stories are the best they’ve seen in the industry. YMMV, but cynicism aside, your commentary doesn’t hold up to reality.

Again, wanted to love ESO, but for me it felt so uninspired, so average, so been there done that it just hurt. With a dismal 5.8 user score on Metacritic, seems like more than a few people are in agreement.

To paraphrase someone’s comment here a few months back, I’ll never understand why people get so bent out of shape, take it so much to heart, and go to war with each other over differences of opinion on entertainment. The lunatics have indeed taken over the asylum.

I think comparing people who choose to counter someone who is shit talking to a lunatic is a bit of a stretch, but hey, my expectations are low for this discussion thread anyway.

To be honest, commentary like yours flares up from time to time. Generic dislike for..everything, and that the studio is failing. So uninspired, so average, so been there, done that.

Oh, and that 5.8 was from 2014. I guess if you are going to rush out a Google search to try and bolster your claims, you should do a little more digging than blindly pulling the first result that pops up.

At least he didn’t accuse the whole game of being brown…

ESO is sitting at 74 metascore and 7.7 user score at the moment on metacritic.

So why bother telling us your opinion if your intention was not to discuss it?

ESO is developed by Zenimax Online Studios, not Bethesda.

That’s like saying Bioware is different from EA, same company.

Really enjoying being back in this game – but I still have so much to catch up on (originally left just after the IC update) Glad the DLC’s are included! I might get to the content sometime next year :D!

Always thought this game had a lot going for it but I just can’t get passed how bad the community is .

Never met so many anti social gamers not even in WoW and that is saying something .Eventually I turned off all chat but that kind of defeats the purpose of playing an mmo .

Reader

Really? I know this is purely anecdotal, but i’ve had nothing but amazing experience with the community in the game. Made more in-game friends than in most recent MMOs.

Worst thing I’ve had in the game is random group invites.

I think the issue is more with the forum/social media community and that is all on the two soccer moms you see on the video.

There is some serious favoritism going on with naming personal friends Community Ambassadors and a overall promotion or at the very least apathy for toxic behavior from favored cliques.

someone on the forums once compared it to the dean of Evergreen college….in which folks threaten to firebomb the offices and the CM’s thank them for their candor and passion.

The sad thing about all of this is ZoS has hired some really good developers , many of whom once worked on 2nd edition D&D when TSR still owned that IP, yet for whatever reason, they have seemed to dump the community management on one of the Office managers and one of Bethesda’s go to employees…..the sad thing about that is there are some really great CM’s out there who were forced to move on from the industry due to closures.

I have hope that enough people are starting voice their opinions that administration will actually start to look at it and make changes.

I’m sorry you feel that way Roger, I have mostly positive interactions with the people in ESO but I know that is all anecdotal, everyone’s experience is different. Though my suggestion might be join a good guild or two and then you don’t need Zone chat anymore. And by good guild I mean one that has some member vetting and not just a “spam invite” house.
