Will Tamriel be one big open space?

I've been wondering this for a while. You know how in Runescape, where the entire world was one big open space, you didn't have to load each individual place, except for islands and dungeons. Well, I was wondering if you would, for instance, have to a go through loading screens to get from Skyrim to Morrowind, then from Morrowind to Black Marsh, and so on. Or if you will be able to travel all of Tamriel in one constant journey. Or if you would only have to load provinces out of you Alliances land(ie: Skyrim, Morrowind, and Black Marsh are open, but Cyrodiil and farther require loading). If anybody knows or has any clues, please share!

No, definetly not. I imagine at the very least each province will be split up, and there is confirmed to be invisible walls between the other factions' provinces, and I'm not sure if you can waltz into Cyrodill or not.

I'm sure you won't have any loading screens within your factions province. No clue on Cyrodiil, I wouldn't be surprised if you do have to load it. And unfortunately you can't go into other factions province, which I think is shitty.

I disagree, I think if you were able to go into another alliances province, without being attacked, It wouldn't really flow with the lore of TESO, you know?

I'm pretty sure they said because of the megaserver they have to use loading screens in between zones. Whether that means between the main provinces of your faction I'm not really sure but having phases and loading screens is what's going to make one big server possible.

Each province is its own zone with a loading screen. The only difference between them is that all the faction zones exist on one part of the megaserver while Cyrodiil exists, by itself, on another.

Thank you Reichmar, That answers my question perfectly!

I don't mind zones you have to phase into - I don't even mind loading screens if they're quick enough... GW2 is great about it... but what I certainly do not want to see are INVISIBLE WALLS or world design that feels like a large and fairly open HALLWAY.

If you see it, you can run to it. That's how it should be.

Within reason, you should be able to climb most areas/jump up to places and walk pretty much anywhere within the map borders.

Well, I don't have a problem with loading screens and what not. It's just for information, ya know?
