My brother is taking part in the beta and this weekend he was allowed to invite somebody else to try the game and he chose me.
I was iffy because I've been kind of burnt out on MMOs recently. But it definitely felt like The Elder Scrolls while I was playing it. Granted I didn't get a chance to play it much. I only got up to level 4 by the end of the weekend. It was enough, though, to convince me to buy the game when it comes out. Which isn't too far away at this point.
