Here we are 6 days from the March 30th 7AM EST early access pre-launch of the Elder Scrolls Online for PC/MAC. I thought it was time I better put together a short editorial on my thoughts thus far and my predictions for the future. Since there are already so many articles like this out there I will make this short and sweet.
I will preface this by saying I love everything Elder Scrolls. Elder Scrolls Online has not let me down with my love for the Elder Scrolls series. Yes Zenimax Online Studios has certainly had to make some sacrifices compared to the single player games but I truly believe they have found a happy medium for single player and MMO players. One of the greatest strengths about ZOS is their willingness to listen to the community and make changes they think will make everyone happy. Sadly this could also be one their greatest weaknesses.
There has been heavy debate in the community about some so called knee jerk reactions by ZOS and that they are sacrificing their vision to please a small percent of the community. I won’t go into those debates but if you are inclined you can easily find them. I don’t necessarily agree that there is an issue since only ZOS knows their vision and roadmap and all the debates have been based on beta and the pts. My only concern is if they are indeed knee jerk reactions but my opinion is they know what they are doing.
I have seen many changes each beta and each one has made the game even better. To me the game is amazing as is and I will be spending countless hours playing it. I cannot tell you what the future holds for ESO but I do know ZOS has put their heart and souls into the game and they WANT it to be the best and a place for you to call home for years to come.
