TESO to be “accessible to anyone,” says ZeniMax Online

Wednesday, 13th June 2012 16:07 GMT By Debabrata Nath

Nick Konkle, lead gameplay and combat designer for The Elder Scrolls Online, has said the MMO’s being designed in order to be “accessible to anyone”.

Speaking to CVG in a video interview, Konkle said not only will it be accessible, it will also be an action-packed, tactical experience.

“I think what you are going to find is both the Elder Scrolls lore that you’re familiar with, but really brought into a new setting,” he said. “You should be really comfortable with what you find there.

“It’s a game that’s accessible to anyone. It isn’t the slower paced combat from the previous generation of MMOs. We’ve really tried to make it feel responsive, tactical, and action-packed, which is what I think a Skyrim player might expect from this type of game.”

TESO is slated for release on PC and Mac sometime during 2013.

    Pffft. MMOs are for people who…um

    I just want them to show us the game. I have very little hope for it after some of the things they’ve said, but I’m curious about it because of some of the other things they’ve said.

    But ultimately it’s easy to talk up your game.

    Get a demo out there at a con. Let people play it so that I can hear the opinions of people who have.

    I think that The Elder Scrolls Online is going to be great. People have high expectations because of the popularity of the series so I know the game will deliver. Lately I have been checking out TESO Zone to follow the latest information!
