According to the developers of the upcoming free-to-play MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online, the game won’t be an endless routine of grinding all kinds of low-key activities. The people at Bethesda Softworks plan to get rid of grinding to differentiate themselves from the gross of other MMOs, such as World of Warcraft and League of Legends, so don’t expect to go out in the world, continuously hunting small animals for resources to smith iron daggers, like you could do in Skyrim if you wanted to get to level 100 smithing fast.
INFO: Grinding is a term used in many RPGs and MMOs, depicting the use of repetitive tasks to level up your character without having to do some actual work (e.g. killing monsters with a low level).
TES Online releases somewhere around Spring 2014 and will be available for PC, Xbox One and PS4. If you missed out on the gameplay demo, you can watch it here.
