PAX Prime Interview – Paul Sage

During my time at the ZeniMax Online booth during PAX Prime this past weekend, I got to catch up with Paul Sage, Creative Director for The Elder Scrolls Online. We talked about the gameplay experience that PAX attendees could enjoy at the booth, as well as touching on a number of topics related to the PvE experience in ESO. Be sure to listen for details on “Veteran Points”, a previously unannounced alternate advancement system, that will allow you to continue progressing your character once you have achieved the max level of 50. Sage also gives some details on their hopes for adventure zones, Coldharbour, and a brand new NPC guild in ESO named the “Undaunted”. Watch the video for all the details!

    Wow, kudos Atropos. That was a really great interview! Got to see a lot of game play AND there was good discussion. I had to go back and watch it through a couple times so I could focus. Haha! Good stuff, thanks!

    Usually that means that NPCs are reacting (as far as animations go) to your hits.  When combat feels “floaty”, it feels like your weapons seemingly weigh nothing at all, because NPCs don’t react to those hits.  By reacting, I mean staggering, wincing, making sounds, flinching, basically physically moving in accordance your weapons strikes.
