I can honestly say this is the first time I'm actually excited to hear about an MMO in years. I'm hoping that it still plays like Skyrim/Oblivion.. just with like other people wandering around doing whatever, cause that's pretty much what I do.

Basically I'm trying to stay super positive for this one, because honestly Bethesda hasn't really let me down with this franchise yet, and I'm hoping this doesn't be the project that makes them drop the ball on that.

Based on rumors it will be 120 hour to reach the level cap.

Also 100v100 PVP which I would assume would be world base PVP zones and not instance based PVP.

I think it will play similar to Skyrim/Oblivion. But I am sure it will include raids/instances, smaller pvp instances, and RPG/PVE/PVP servers (to play however you prefer). Though, I hope they can bring something new to the MMORPG experience.

It's about time they went this route. This has been something I've been expecting for a long time, they have the right game and formulato do it. I can't wait to see what they introduce for a mmo experience.

Have they ever let you down for anything? They are in my opinion one of the last remaining real game developers out there.

^ Touche, they have yet to let me down with any of the games they've done that I have played (there are a few that I haven't played by them so I can't speak for those games)
