I came across a project on Kickstarter called Unwritten: Echoes of Twilight by Druid Gameworks.
It’s a open world single player RPG similar to The Elder Scrolls.In which you choose which race to play as and can do or be what you want to be/do.
Here’s the overview via it’s Kickstarter page:
Unwritten: Echoes of Twilight is a single player, open world, role playing adventure game that combines the visual appeal of modern graphics and animation technologies with the classic role-playing elements hardcore RPG gamers love. In modern games, immersion, interactivity, and customization are often watered down by major studios, resulting in diluted replay value and degradation of the “role play” nature of the games. As RPG gamers ourselves, Druid Gameworks understands all those fun nerdy things RPG gamers want to see, or do, and we plan to give it to them in spades.
In this precursor and introduction to the Unwritten series, players are introduced to the world of Arthanswold through the heartland isles of Aerendwel and Byre, where the diverse and often unforgiving landscapes range from perilous mountain passes to dark ominous marsh lands, and overgrown jungles. In a player driven adventure, you can explore the world in any direction you want your story to go! Unearth hidden locations, unique characters, and dynamic quests. Chronicle your adventure in your journal, taking real notes whenever something important crosses your path. Customize pets and companions, take ownership of shops, wield powerful ritual magicks, join factions to form friendships, and uncover the shards of an ancient mystery that echoes from the past.

The game has makers for such mods as Reclaiming Sancre Tor, Martigen’s Monster Mod, and countless others for TES:IV Oblivion. Also some makers involved in mods like Climates of Tamriel, Unique Uniques, Live Another LIfe, Unofficial for Skyrim and it’s DLCs and a composer for the mod Beyond Skyrim, for TES:V Skyrim. Also some involved in mods for Fallout New Vegas, Fallout 3, Half-Life 1 & 2, Counterstrike, Temple of Elemental Evil, Crysis, Torchlight II, and Civilization V,
So they have a great background in big open spaced/world games.
It’s coming out for PC, Xbox Live, and Playstation Network.
