Update: Archive here.

Developers are showing off the game at QuakeCon. Here's the twitch stream.

Horsies.

Looks pretty neat. I want to know when the PS4 open beta will happen.

It looks pretty aswome so far. I just hope the game doesn't end up being laggy.

I have such conflicting feelings over this. Superficially, it looks like a new Elder Scrolls game and that's awesome, but then the active skill bar pops up and I get really sad.

People are woo'ing for the strangest things. The game looks like an Elder Scrolls game, meaning mediocre combat and great exploration, which brings me to the question; Why is this multiplayer?

If they wanted the franchise to go MMO the one thing they needed to do was to improve the combat, but it's still just standing face to face wailing at each other.

Edit: This is probably just me being crazy, but did anyone else find it weird that they were asking for more beta-testers (as if they're lacking beta applications) ? It was probably just a bad choice of words, but isn't the usual tone more of a "you can apply to beta here if you want" not a "please apply to our beta".

This actually seems alright.

Did I miss it? It's just a schedule screen now.

Edit: Yeah, it's over. I'll just watch the archive here.

Looks good, couple of issues with it although it is beta, might sign up for it later.

Not sure if the combat being pretty much the same as skyrim is good or bad.

Is this going to be Subscription base, or is it going to be like GW2 in that you buy it once and don't have to pay any more.
