My husband and I are huge fans of The Elder Scrolls video games. My husband was lucky enough to be invited to participate in last weekend’s BETA test! Since you are allowed to have multiple characters to one email account I was also given a few chances to play the game.
I think that the developers of The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) have done a fantastic job with this game. The quests that I have been able to experience so far have been interesting, fun, and rewarding! The landscapes that I have been able to explore have been absolutely beautiful. There are so many unique places to explore! The crafting system in the game is intricate and awesome! Also, being able to fight with other people when you are having a hard time defeating an enemy is another great (not required) perk!
There is no set time to complete quests. You are free to explore, gather supplies, or get a drink at the tavern whenever you desire. You are allowed to complete your quests in whatever order you like. How you play is completely up to you.
I think that if you have liked previous Elder Scrolls games or if you are a fan of Massive Multiplayer Online games, this game would be appealing to you. There really is something for everyone!
ESO is set to release for PC on April 4, 2014. Visit the official website for more details about the game and preorder bonuses: www.elderscrollsonline.com
Stay tuned for more posts after the official release of the game!
