ESO Press Event Info.

Some highlights -

- The UI is among the most minimalistic I’ve seen in an MMO
- Stealth is available to everyone, but it isn’t as deep as Skyrim.
- The skill system sits somewhere between Skyrim and Guild Wars 2, with select improvements over both.
- Quests are very subtly instanced.
- Towns are relatively static, but enemy combat AI has been reworked.
- Crafting adopts a lot of what was good about Skyrim’s alchemy and applies it to the whole system.

Before I even watch it, did they say anything about PvP?

No sir. I don't know if were going to like this game at all. It's a m left click attack/m right click block game.

You can play through every zone on a single character, regardless of faction. There’s a reason why few MMOs bother with three factions nowadays – it’s a vast amount of content to create, particularly when you’re only likely to see a third of it. TESO’s solution is clever. You’ll level from 1-50 and do your personal story with your chosen faction, then when you’re finished you can pick a second faction to play through in what amounts to a new game plus. Zones and encounters are buffed to 50 and loot updated accordingly. Then, when you finish that you’ll be able to play through the final faction in an even tougher mode. You’ll still only be able to group and socialise with members of your own faction, but it means you don’t have to pick what race you play based solely on what zones you want to adventure in. Your Breton will get to wander around Skyrim.

This seems retarded to me. I mean, I like it from a single player perspective, but from an MMO perspective with factions, I don't see how this isn't completely immersion breaking. What the hell is the point in factions if you just do all the quests everywhere? Why not just make it Open PvP instead of RvR if people can do everything everywhere, and then it can really be alliance versus alliance similar to AoC or Mordred/Andred?

The more I hear about TESO the less I feel like the game is going to be any fun at all. ;(
