The ESO beta screenshot thread

#1 Posted by MeatSim (10902 posts) -

Since the NDA has been lifted I figured I would share some of the screenshots I took from the last beta weekend.

Just don't let him anywhere near a Khajiit.

My character hammering on a invisible wall.
Bandits aren't even nice to each other.

Dog Knight!
Just put in a few job applications for some King and Duke positions.
There is something shifty about this giant eyeball monster.

Science!??
My other character leaning against a invisible wall.
I bet your "misunderstood" by people too.
You need to eat more meat.
Dog says never trust a Catman.
Maybe don't live in a place called Dreughside if you don't want to be attacked by Dreugh.

This is how the world ends.
With no pants or shirts.

What settings are you playing on? I recall it looking better when I was in the closed beta.

Its way sharper than this, lol it makes it look like its from 05 I would hesitate to say the game is quick stunning in places so this isn't indicative of what it looks like at max settings.

edit: Also I like the end of the world screenshot just cause its not on max doesn't mean your screens don't matter.

Good idea on the screenshots thread, I'll take some and add them today/tomorrow.

Could someone do me a huge favor and snap some shots of font sizes if you can make them larger? Thanks!

I mean, based on those screenshots (which is all I've seen of the game), it really fucking is.

@sharkethic: Those screenshot looks like they are on lowest everything.

@gike987: It most certainly does - i.e. really ugly. Again, just reacting based on what's presented here (and the fact that it's a MMO, which isn't exactly a genre known for awe inspiring graphics...which now I'm pretty sure someone will try to dispute).

Looks quite drab.

Don't even care about the graphics. Would love to be able to balls-deep this game.

#13 Edited by spiralcut (118 posts) -

I don't know why the graphics on here look like poo, on my machine it looks almost identical to Skyrim. You should see the sunshafts in the morning in the Aldmeri starting zone. Just seriously wow. (Also GiantBomb seems to compress the file in a way that takes away the amazingness.)

Foggy morning.

Yea I was playing on lower settings, my computer is old. So those screenshots are not going be the best representation of the games graphics.

I don't know but if that's all you've seen, not the best judgement call perhaps? It looks damn, damn beautiful on max.

Having now watched the Quick Look I'd say our definition of "damn, damn beautiful" differs a great deal, sir.

@sharkethic: giant bomb videos still go through a compression machine and come out looking all weird, some of the textures in ESO may be a little lacking but on the highest settings it has a far higher quality texture resolution than Vanilla skyrim, and lighting in ESO is fucking gorgeous, which sorta came through a little bit in the quicklook with that setting sun

In any case this is an MMO so its graphics and art style should be compared to other MMOS

Well, unless it pulls a Watch_Dogs, The Division and I begs to differ.

I'm not sure what you think The Division is but it's not an MMO per se, I'd say it's looking to be more comparable to a Borderlands 'plus'.

Or something along the lines of what Destiny appears to be.
