    I haven't touched this franchise except to have a heavily discounted version of Skyrim sitting on my Steam account. Dare we hope for another MMO?

    They're taking applications for closed beta testing.

    Ensure you run a dxdiag and have it available during the application process. They're going to want a copy.

    Cinematic trailer - very impressive, though as hard experience has taught all of us, has no correlation to the game's prospects for success.

    Watch the game play video. They're going to try some very interesting concepts.

    !

    Although I do foresee some extreme fail toons being rolled by the clueless. A tank that uses a bow? :eek:

    And HOLY CRAP! I posted before I finished the video. The PvP portion at the end reminds me of the old epic Tarren Mill battles from the Vanilla WoW days! :D

    No, I think it's going to be a while.

    I've only watched the first minute or so of this first-person combat video. I kind of felt like I was in Duskwood/Darkwind Pass, which is not meant to be a criticism -- it's actually a positive comment.

    I was never much of a first-person fighter in WoW, as my main toons were casters and I preferred the balcony view. :)

    Wow, 46 minutes. I need to devote some time for that. As for 1st person? I loved it in EQ but had to go balcony in WoW as well.

    Spring of 2014 release. I suspect Elder Scrolls is why Blizz is starting over with Titan.

    I'm getting old. My daughter received a beta invitation, too. I'm going to have to fight her for time on the gaming desktop. :smile-79:

    **sigh** Less than an hour to go before they bring the beta servers online. Be nice if they brought 'em up early.
