Like you all, i'm one of the new beta users who received a key this week.

Whether it be positive or negative, what are your thoughts and experiences so far? May I remind you before posting, that NDA is still currently in effect.

Jaw dropped experience. I don't know what more to say, everything that I though it will be it happens whit minor flaws (beta of course) but as far as creating an "Mmo" that perpetrates the core of ES, Zinemax hands down brought it, because you can even feel it doesn't feel like it is an Mmo after all. And I can happily say that finally I found my "Mmo" (so to speak an Mmo) of my life. This game is a Social Elder scroll game forget ESO I bautized this game from now on as "SES" SOCIAL ELDER SCROLL haha. Sorry but that is one thing that has making me dropped my jaw besides the graphics. I had the delightful experience to play this game at full graphics and damn... I just going to say that I can't wait to get to Tamriel.

My reason to for signing up of the Beta test was to see what the gameplay was/is like and to check whether or not it would be compatible with my Mac. I'm happy to say that on both counts i've been very satisfied. I've decided it's a Yes for buying this game. I think it'll provide hours of fun for both my daughter and I. Though, we think we'd both be better suited to play ESO via the PS4 rather than our Mac's. As you state, it's very socially orientated therefore playing via the PS4 I think would be a lot more simpler.

When I put the settings on high/ultra the game looks and runs beautifully, the movement mechanics are sweet too!

Yes there are many flaws but that's to be expected, it being a beta test an all. Though I am surprised there is no mini-map, very strange.

8/10 so far and I expect the game to improve a lot between now and April/June.

See, I like the fact that there is no mini map. I think it would clutter up the UI far too much.

On the other hand, I could see how nice it would be to implement an optional one for those who do want it.

i'm already giving eso a 9/10 on my score sheets. really really great stuff from the devs, perfect? not quite, there's still room for improvement. love how this game works. love what they did. it has a definite feel of an ES title for me. plus not to mention you start again by being a prisoner. the bugs and connectivity issues are to be expected in beta as always. graphics as always were outstanding, audio is good too(but i do wish we could have a subtitle option for some of the scenes), gameplay(single player) is great. there are still lots of things to iron out but my oh my, this beta has been great. i do hope we have more content on the near future!


@civrules
yeah haha, next beta imma try and livestream lolololol.

An option to choose a mini-map would be very welcomed, just so you which direction is North, South, Easy and West. It's the small things that count.

I'm pretty satisfied until now, even though the 3rd person view of the character wasn't really good for me (I had to chang to 1st person, I believe it's better this way). However, I'm not sure if I'm going to buy and give a monthly payment for the game, I'll be more sure when my enthusiasm will fade away through the days and, hopefully, the next beta test, if I'm on the list once more.

It's a WOW killer, no, murderer. Even without having played PVP.

Yeah indeed I am glad my PC runs this game on ultra, that tells you that they where smart in the textures designs and how well they used and distribute the poli-counts.

No problem



P.s. And about mini map, is not needed because you have something (that I wont say) that helps you as like if was a mini map. The UI in this game is very well I mean VERY WELL implemented.

please tell me it's a compass at the top of the screen like every released screenshot thus far. That's how it's been done in ES games past, and it's always been nice


Which is more difficult: To do as you wish? Or to have power and choose not to?

Rest assured, it's got the same compass as skyrim.

My thoughts are it feels like a laggy elder scroll game that I can't control at all without lag my ping must be like 1000000 or something
By the way can you use accents in character creation?
