    Default Elder Scrolls general thread

    As many of you are aware, Elder Scroll V was announced yesterday during VGA. Here's the trailer-

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNLKLCZN8wc

    Today, Bethesda announced they would be using a brand new engine for TES V, once and for all ending the speculation on whether or not they'd be using Gamebryo-

    There's rumors going around about what kind of engine they'll be using. Many are guessing the id Tech 5 engine will be used, and others are hoping for Cry Engine.

    What are your hopes for TES V? Personally, I hope Skyrim leans more in the Morrowind direction than the Oblivion direction. I loved the amount of lore that was in Morrowind, and felt that Oblivion dropped the ball in this department. I also want to see Cliff Racers. And Jeremy Soule.

    Anyways, TES general. Currently reinstalling Morrowind. This song always gives me chills-

    If they move away from Gamebryo, it will most likely be some form of Id techs engine since Zenimax bought out Id.

    Also I wouldnt expect too much from Bethesda right now. If Toddler Howard has anything to do with this elder scrolls... well then, chances are it will be pretty bad. They have been doing a good job at "dumbing down" their IPs in terms of gameplay and design.

    Well, one reason I think they've been dumbing things down, is because of the need to push PC games out onto the console these days. Here's a small comment made by Crytek- http://kotaku.com/5701066/crysis-dev...-pc-games-back

    PC gaming so so far ahead of consoles, it's ridiculous, but developers have to water down the games if they want to get a console port out.

    Well that brightened up my Sunday night! Had been waiting so long for TES V that I'd taken my eye off the ball!

    Nice looking teaser site but still a year to wait, lucky I'm a patient person ; )

    Thanks for the heads up...

    It's a new graphics/gameplay engine built internally. We'll have more details down the road."

    Anyone seen the videos for Project Offset, looks equally promising.

    Hoping they bring back throwing weapons and spears from morrowind. Also Oblivion was one of the most repetitive game i have ver played. Please add more item variety. No more Iron-Steel-Dwarven ect ect. I remember in oblivion it was me one shotting people with stealth shot from my bow. Go more into Two Worlds 2 vast variety of armor and weapon models. And yes i love how they are going to the land of the Nords. VIKINGS!

    Awesomeness crits Zodion for 3432657251654124315541 awesome damage.

    Zodion dies.

    Seriously though - can't wait for this!

    Personally I liked Morrowind better. Oblivion was fantastic, but theres something about Morrowind... maybe I just enjoyed the story and lore better? I certainly loved the whole disapearance of the dwarves storyline - I still can't be 100% sure what happened to them! The whole game felt darker and more mysterious.

    Though they should keep mana regen like in Oblivion, magic felt only viable for support in Morrowind.
