How Well Does The Elder Scrolls Online Run On Your PC?

 

The Elder Scrolls series practically invented the modern single-player RPG. Today, we look at the franchise's expansion into the MMO space with The Elder Scrolls Online. What sort of graphics card and CPU will you need to enjoy your experience in Tamriel?

Tamriel is now bigger, better, and whole lot more crowded.

After reaching level ten I was able to travel to Cyrodiil and take part in the massive PvP battle. With the Imperial nation now collapsed, the three factions are all vying for control of the area and the Ruby Throne. Each team has their respective...

Does the classic RPG make a great massive multiplayer game?

A vast stretch of Tamriel to explore ; Excellent narrative-led quests ; Looks and feels like a proper Elder Scrolls title ; High production values

Combat can be an awkward half-way house ; Not quite a perfect solo or group experience yet

Still, there are other, more social pleasures to be found here, the story-led questing works brilliantly, and Tamriel is a great place to explore. Whether you’re a lapsed WoW veteran or an Elder Scrolls fanatic, you’re unlikely to go away dissatisfied.

One of the best skill progression systems in any MMO, hands down; Fantastic presentation, UI and voice acting; Deep, very well written lore permeates every single quest; PVP is genuinely great fun

Combat is laggy, glitchy and slow; PVE gameplay is uninspired and generic; Lack of interesting or new mechanics; Subscription fee is not justified; After a fairly hefty beta process, still lots of bugs

Bethesda have rolled the 12-sided dice on Elder Scrolls. Has the massive multiplayer online role playing gamble paid off?

But regardless of where you are, trudge you will. The Elder Scrolls Online combat mechanic is a strange mix between Neverwinter Nights II and the earliest iterations of World of Warcraft. It's not necessarily bad, it's actually pretty decent, but...

We're just a little worried about how good an MMO this can be...

Of course, this is just our experience from the early levels, and what remains to be seen is the all too crucial endgame component where the most time will be spent. Without a true handle on what that holds, all we can say is that the game is shaping...
