Elder Scrolls Online’s Elsweyr is not exactly what I wanted – I’m a Hammerfell and Morrowind girl – but we already got Morrowind, so Elsweyr is basically close enough and I will definitely take it, even if it’s saddled with dragons. That’s just me as an Elder Scrolls fangirl, though; I was looking for a new entry point to get back to the game, and cat people? In the desert? In a province we’ve barely touched? I’m loving it.
As an MMO player and journo, however, I’m… also super excited. I’m stoked to see an MMORPG doing so well and coming up with a consistent content delivery schedule with a workable business model and potent annual expansions. The MMO genre hasn’t had the best run here these last few years, and this game bucks that trend handily, which is why it keeps winning awards. So even if I didn’t care about Khajiit or Tamriel, I’d be rooting for this one.
Then again, I am still not the world’s biggest fan of the combat and character progression in the game, the lockbox-driven business model irritates me, and I suspect a lot of folks are still smarting over Bethsoft’s recent bungles and might be poised to take it out on ZeniMax. Where do you stand – are you all-in for Elsweyr?
