Bethesda Defends Elder Scrolls Online
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
In a recent Eurogamer article Bethesda's Pete Hines responded to fan and journalist criticisms arising from early details about The Elder Scrolls Online. In development at ZeniMax Online Studios for Mac and Windows PCs, the MMO will be the first Elder Scrolls title to allow gamers to explore the world of the fantasy series with others.
"From the very beginning when it was first conceived we knew the reaction would be mixed," Hines said. "It's not all that different than what we went though with Fallout 3, which is, you're taking this thing that everybody knew and loved like this. Now in that case it was same genre, different developer, different approach. This is an RPG, but MMO is different in how things work."Head over to the page below for the full article.
Eurogamer: Responding To Mixed Reactions
Hines expects sceptical fans will come around as more of the game is revealed. He compared TESO's development and campaign as a "marathon", and revealed plans to allow more and more people to play more of the game over time.
"There's always that issue of meeting expectations or what people had in their mind's eye," he said. "It's really early. We've only shown the barest glimpse of it here. We've got an awful lot of stuff to talk about that's new for the genre and new for MMOs, things people haven't tried before, that are doing things in a different way."
