E3 2013 - If there is one game I have been waiting years to play it would have to be The Elder Scrolls Online. I have been a fan of the TES franchise for over 10 years now, and have been hoping the whole time for an online version. You can imagine my excitement when TES online was announced last year.
Yesterday during Sony's press conference at the E3 Expo, ZeniMax Online Studios took to the stage to show off the first actual game play footage of TES online. Titled "The Battle for Tamriel", players much choose to stand alone or team up and fight side by side to eliminate the encroaching forces of Oblivion.
During the press conference, it was announced that TES Online will be available on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and that the beta program has begun for all four systems.
This is something that has just popped up onto my radar and has instantly gone right into the 'top 10 games that I want to play' list for next-gen consoles. Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft are joining forces with Tom Clancy for The Division, which will be released on both the Xbox One and PS4.
The Division is set in New York, three weeks after a global pandemic begins on Black Friday. Players within the game take on a role of 'The Division', which is a group of "self-supported tactical agents". The gameplay video, above, should have you convinced enough that this is something to look forward to. The Division comes out in 2014.
Let's dissect the trailer, shall we? I'm loving the assistance from the drones, the realism (as he moves past the police car, he shuts the door to get past it while continuing to be within cover, the ultra detail within the game world itself, the team work seems great, but the one thing I'm not loving is the frame rate. This is some early work here, as it's coming out next year, but I'm hoping for 1080p at 60 FPS locked on these next-gen titles.
