The Elder Scrolls Online lead gameplay designer Nick Konkle gives us a look at the cross-platform MMORPG in action, explaining how it was built for a control-pad friendly future.

Look closely at the TESO gameplay footage below and you’ll see self-explanatory control prompts; it looks quite a lot like Skyrim, doesn’t it? But Zenimax Online didn’t want to just strip down the controls and call it a day; the whole thing was designed as a new kind of MMORPG, where you have more on your plate than watching your cooldown timers.

The Elder Scrolls Online is coming to Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2014.
