Speaking with Kotaku, Game Director Matt Firor discussed the concerns that The Elder Scrolls Online would end up being too WoW-like and how the MMORPG will set itself apart from the pack.
I think the answer there is: the more information that comes out about it—and when people sit down and play it, they'll realize it's different. Like our whole real-time combat system of blocking and dodging is all pretty much new. And the fact that it's based on health, stamina and magicka—you have to maintain your stamina bar to block and it's all real-time—gives it a completely different feel from any MMO."
Firor was joined by Creative Director Paul Sage, who went on to discuss accessibility design and managing combat resources in The Elder Scrolls Online. The article also describes a half-hour press demo hosted by the team and what the writer experienced during that time.
