One Tamriel To Let Elder Scrolls Online Players Explore Entire World At Any Level

One of the biggest challenges of MMOs is going through the grind of leveling to get to the best content. With a new feature called One Tamriel, ZeniMax Online Studios hopes to remove level zoning.

With One Tamriel, once players get through the tutorial, they'll be able to explore the entire world at any level. This not only gives them the ability to explore the entire world without fear of being mismatched, but also play with other quest-goers regardless of how much more experienced they are.

One Tamriel is set to come to Elder Scrolls Online this fall.

Enter The Cute But Deadly World Of Tokyo 42 In New Pre-Alpha Footage

Publisher Mode 7 explores the market level of isometric action/shooter Tokyo 42 (shown in the announcement trailer a few months ago) and others in a new alpha playthrough video.

The video is narrated by Mode 7 co-founder Paul Kilduff-Taylor as he explores multiplayer gameplay and a single-player prototype in various areas described as a "cute yet uneasy and deadly Tokyo." The game is said to draw inspiration from the Assassin's Creed and Metal Gear Solid series, as Tokyo 42 has players hiding within crowds and tracking targets utilizing stealth mechanics. The world's art style is clean and colorful, and can be rotated in 3D to see all four sides of the active area.

While in these vibrant areas you can pick up weapons from terminals and contacts so the player can tackle both storyline and side quest missions. You can also decide whether you want to approach challenges sneakily or violently. Another video of an interview with the dual-brother development team from new studio SMAC Games showing off new content will be released soon. 

Tokyo 42 will be the first published title for Mode 7, as well as the first release for SMAC Games. It is expected to arrive in early 2017.
