Zenimax showed off about twenty minutes of gameplay today, mostly in first person, of their new MMO Elder Scrolls Online.
There really hasn't been a ton of news coming out for the Elder Scrolls Online since E3. Really, even at E3, outside of the announcement the game was coming to next-gen consoles, we didn't find out anything new about the game. I did get hands on time with the game at E3, but it wasn't anything I could record and share, outside of my opinion of the gameplay, so this footage Bethesda live-streamed today from QuakeCon is the first official gameplay we've seen in a quite a while. It's also the first time we get a better look at the improved first person view.
(Note: Volume is a bit low, it was that way on the livestream as well.)
You'll get a (very) brief overview on character creation and skills and then they jump right in, showing off a bit of Morrowind, NPC interaction, and teaming up for a dungeon raid.
I could ramble on about my opinion, which essentially is that the game is looking alright, without blowing me away, but I'd rather know what you think about the game with what you've seen so far and has the new footage changed anything for you?
