Elder Scrolls MMO – Morrowind Online

According to two transcripts of a court case between Bethesda and Interplay, Bethesda is working on a secret MMORPG project similar to World of Warcraft. Supposedly, they have been working on it for 3 years already and plan to reveal it to the public very soon! Does that mean the E3 will reveal the highly-anticipated Elder Scrolls MMO – Morrowind Online? Wicked!

These games, as I have described, take many years to develop. And to the extent that we are, we’re not in the process of developing our own Fallout MMO right now. We’re doing something else.

Ok, does that mean they are working on an Elder Scrolls MMO? Maybe they just pretended to be working on something else and are working on a Fallout MMO but first have to win in court to secure the rights for a Fallout MMO?

Well, personally I suppose that Bethesda is really working on something else and did not pretend anything. Any smart game development company will first secure their rights before they start developing a game that will be in development for years and cost millions of dollars.

Morrowind Online – What do you expect?

Let’s assume they are working on a WoW-like MMORPG based on the Elder Scrolls universe. What would you like to see in a Morrowind MMO? Do you think that Morrowind would even work as a MMO or will it be a complete failure?

What I really liked in Morrowind was the possibility to own a castle or house that you could fill with your rare items, glass armors and ebony weapons. That would also be an awesome feature for a MMO. It should also be possible to form guilds and conquer castles and cities in Morrowind Online. Riding a horse is mandatory. Hopefully, they will focus more on skills and player interaction than a “hardcore-grinding” MMO. A storyline mode combined with MMO elements would probably work well (similar to Guild Wars or SWTOR)

    If the MMO is anything like Oblivion, then I think it will be amazing.

    DON’T make it an MMO it would suck I would hate the Elder scrolls games from that point on if they took that ridiculously stupid route.

    I partly agree with you Torben, a single-player game might be better. Or maybe not an MMO, but a “normal” game with co-op mode (à la Hunted: The Demons Forge)

    Anyway, you can do things in a MMO that you will never do in a singleplayer game. If they would make a Morrowind MMO without the grind, but with a greater focus on PvP that might work, similar to Guild Wars 2 maybe.

    Ow god please no, not an mmo elder scrolls. One of the biggest parts of the elder scrolls series is the story and the immersion, 2 things that have nothing to do with an mmo.

    Az, I disagree with you. A Morrowind MMO would be awesome. A MMO does not necessarily mean that there is no story. Please watch this video of Guild Wars 2 and you will know in what direction MMO’s could possibly go during the next decade:

    There are and will be MMO’s with a story. Guild Wars 2 and SWTOR are only two examples. So, I don’t see a reason why they should not make a Morrowind MMO. I’ve played a typical MMO for over 4 years (Lineage 2) and I totally understand your point and I wouldn’t want a stupid Morrowind MMO with 100% grind and 0% story either, but I’m sure that Bethesda know that most Morrowind players need/want a epic story.

    Btw, I liked the story of Morrowind 3: The Elders Scrolls a lot more than the story of Oblivion.

    YUCK! Elder scrolls should stick with single player (or local multiplayer at best). An Elder Scrolls MMO wouldn’t be any different than any of those other boring MMOs like WoW or Everquest except the setting of course. The Elder Scrolls games are all about immersion. When you play an MMO, its all about “level grinding” or “fat loot”. And besides, they’re working on Skyrim.

    Well, it would be more wise if they would add a multiplayer mode, so that you would have Singleplayer and a multiplayer mode. And then, I dunno, since there are 10 races, put 5 races on every side, and fight a war and take cities or something. There is a civil war as one of the main themes, so that would be logical.

    Kengar, who says that a MMO needs to be that way? Only because Rift and all the other new MMORPGs are still using the traditional MMO system doesn’t mean that an Elder Scrolls MMO has to be like that. With a bit creativity you can easily avoid too much grind in a MMO (imo).

    Jauke, yep they could add a co-op mode to Skyrim à la Hunted: The demon’s forge. In fact, I would be surprised if they would not consider this.

    A morrowind mmo 5 years ago would be interesting, but the fact that bethesda is destroying this once awesome franchise I doubt that any elder scrolls mmo would be a good idea. As to sOliver, bethesda doesn’t really care about morrowind players. Also, GW2 and SWTOR haven’t been released yet so we do not know how story and narratives work for an MMO yet.

    im not so sure about a morrowind mmo. there is so much to do in the game like oh, i dont know, pretty much create anything you want in it. thieving, one of the great aspects of the game would probably be ruined in the mmo seeing as how players might not like getting their belongings stolen X_X
    i mean, maybe if they get a good storyline and throw in some side quests that you actually have to look for and really get immersed into, i think it could become something good. as for turning into the multiplayer aspect of it, they could do some stuff with that, especially get that gladiator ring in vivec included in there haha

    What really would be very different from all (previous) MMO’s would be this… a feature where you could actually create a part of the world in the CS and upload/link it to a server so other people could visit your part of the world while you do the same with their part (let’s say everyone would get a fixed set of squares or maybe a dungeon or sky area)

    Preferably with a (group of) moderator(s)/player(s) who check the area on stability before allowing common access – and probably a rating.

    Very unique would be that players will have f.e. a shop (with maybe their own face texture in the game) which sells certain (custom made) artifacts / recolored or retextured armors etc., so you can sell your own creations in game.

    Online Morrowind Omg that amazing image the Morrowind univeres online
    1 it should be like 50 times bigger than the elderscoll why well Look at WOW ….. u need a bigger univers for addicted peopels
    2 you will have to make lot of work on Story line and to find a way to combine it with basic mmo with it shitty gread and With an exceptional Story line (good luck but i think u can succes at that )
    becaouse about fantasctic world Morowind is BEST ..

    By the way Lort is smth like this so Morrowind MMO can be great but it willl need LOOOOT of work and fresh mind for exemple ( not that imagination that left in wow now …. )

    Morrowind as an MMO? That would be wicked. Perhaps not with servers that are massive like Blizzard’s WoW, but what I found missing on the Elder Scrolls games was the interaction with other. Picking an NPC’s pockets or smacking them around like some lil bitch was really just … too easy. You could second guess an AI for before you can second guess the reactions of another player. And with these people who are poo-pooing the idea of Morrowind as an MMO … well, they can simply go away and leave the entertainment and enjoyment to us. :)
