Elder Scrolls Online: Cooperative & Social aspects of game-play
Michelle Aubrecht, Jeff Kuhn, Justin Eames

This session will focus on social aspects of game play, especially the interplay between player actions and the rules, interface options, and MMO environment. Attention will be given to how its organization encourages cooperation, sharing of resources, the process of team-formation and communication, skill-building, and leveling up. We will examine how the ESO economy is structured for group play, and how the interface supports teamwork and cooperative play. We will also reflect on how we balance individual play and discovery with group quests, and how we negotiate our commitment to playing ESO with our jobs and families. Someone attending this session can expect to find out what it’s like to play ESO and be guided through character creation, specific areas, and watch a live demo of how we campaign together.
