[Full interview] As a normal, non-hardcore fan of the Elder Scrolls franchise, I have already faintly voiced out my displeasure on how The Elder Scrolls Online will be treated, including lame excuses such as the signature combat system will be replaced due to latency issues. In the first interview, Game Informer spoke to The Elder Scrolls Online’s Creative Director, and here are some of the words he had to say to further piss the fans off (quoted from IGN):
“We have to make our own game. We want to make a good game first. Not a good MMO, not a good Elder Scrolls game, we want to make a good game first, a great experience for the player.”
“Right now we don’t have a large modding plan. We do have plans for things like our UI, allowing the community to look at the UI and say ‘Ok, what changes would I make?’
There are definite ways the community is going to be able to change their game experience, but you have to be really careful with this because you can’t allow players to change other players’ game experiences or they get a little upset with you. “
For the full video interview (19 minutes), head over to Game Informer (link), which seems to have the exclusive first-hand news on the game.
