High-grade graphics along with everything else = you must have a $2000+ machine to run it properly. While I'd rather not mention WoW, one thing people get wrong a lot of the time in making an MMO which essentially was a copy to WoW was that it didn't run on virtually everyone's computer. Sure, I know what you're saying " DUR TESO WON'T BE A WoW CLONE GOD " . . not what I'm saying. I'm saying that something that WoW did nicely is that the game ran on low-grade PCs. My main concern with TESO is that it won't run on low-grade PCs meaning it won't get the numbers it deserves. Unsure

This should not even be an issue. For a long time the devs have been saying the game will be designed to run on even the lower-end rigs. The ones they had at PAX? Fairly mid-range, I've heard. And yet I've only heard glowing reviews of the graphics. Perhaps on the really low end ones one may have to turn down the settings, but this really is something that ZeniMax has already talked about.


Fight for something to die for, because living for nothing really isn't worth it.

Pretty sure they've been saying it's designed to run on five year old PCs. This doesn't mean you can run it at highest settings, but it does mean the game will run, therefore be accessible to most people. If you don't completely replace your computer every five years then you shouldn't be gaming (I tend to build fresh from a good motherboard up, then upgrade various parts onto that as I go, then rinse and repeat after the five years is up).

Yeah, as the gentleman stated above, i heard one of the devs mentioning this. He said something like "We want as many people as possible to play ESO and we don't want them feel pressed to by a new machine for this game." He said that ESO could be run on a 5-year old machine :)

I had the same worry before, don't have it now :)


Free cheese for everyone!

Dont worry about it, nobody is perfect


Debating with someone on the Internet is like mudwrestling with a pig. You get filthy and the pig loves it
