For games that need more time than the average release


For years now readers have been asking us to cover more MMOs and open-ended games, and we didn't always have the resources to do so. But starting this week all of that is changing, as we're now rolling out the new "Reviews in Progress" initiative, with the goal of covering larger games over an extended period of time. These projects are massive undertakings, but we're expanding our coverage to accommodate.

For larger games as a general rule, we'll cover the week of launch, then provide a recap of the first month, followed by a final scored verdict. You'll then be able to use all of these tools to decide whether or not a game is worth your time -- instead of waiting for one giant post.

The criteria for a final verdict will be stringent, and involve exploring a massive amount of content, such as endgame dungeons, as well as experiencing the game up to the maximum level cap. If we don't reach that mark we'll let you know the exact details.

We're kicking off the program with The Elder Scrolls Online this week. In case you're wondering, this isn't necessarily restricted to MMOs, but due to their nature that will likely be the central focus.
