I'm a fan of some of Bethesda's TES games--Skyrim (in terms of the environment) and Morrowind (in terms of storyline). The MMO that's set to come out next year is being developed by ZeniMax Studios, rather than Bethesda.
Personally, I have mixed feelings, as I practically swore off MMOs years ago due to their potential addictiveness. I also wonder if this may be a dying genre, with games like WoW way past their prime. However, this game is centered around a topic that I personally find most engaging, the mythology of Tamriel--which, for the more lore-inclined gamer, is highly developed--and the idea of an invasion by my favorite of the more sinister daedra--Molag Bal.
The game will be based on three factions. Which faction you belong to will be determined by your character's race. What I don't want to see is a WoW clone in terms of cartoonish graphics and a PVP-based system where you can't talk to players of opposing factions. I kind of got that sense from a very early promotional video, but the concept art I'm seeing so far looks good.
