The Elder Scrolls Online going Free 2 Play


With the ever growing MMORPG list of games, each new title faces the gauntlet of its first 6 months to 1 year after launch.  The success of the Elder Scrolls single player games throughout the years gave rise to the Elder Scrolls online.  A much anticipated MMORPG game, with lots of talk before it was officially announced had fan waiting for its release.  

The Elder Scrolls online was released with a monthly subscription model, which did not last long from the official announcement from Bethesda.  Come March 17th for the PC,  the Elder Scrolls Online will become: Tamriel Unlimited which will be released as a Free2Play MMORPG.  Having played the ESO Beta myself, it did not catch my attention as much to purchase the game and pay for the subscription.  It is possible now that it will be a Free2Play game, that many gamers will download and check it out without the need to pay for a monthly subscription.  Time will tell if this F2P model will boost the game or finish it off.  Check out the video below and the article from Kotaku.com for more information.


Now, it's official: Bethesda is re-releasing the game as "Tamriel Unlimited," a version without subscription fees that will go live on March 17 for PC/Mac and on June 9 for PS4/Xbox One.4

Says Bethesda:

Beginning June 9th, you can join your friends on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to play The Elder Scrolls Online – Tamriel Unlimited… with no game subscription fees!

Tamriel Unlimited is arriving on PC/Mac, too – beginning on Tuesday, March 17th. To celebrate the announcement, we've released The Confrontation, the final chapter in our thrilling series of cinematic trailers. Watch the stunning conclusion and get ready for Tamriel Unlimited!5
Of course, there will also be a premium option and microtransactions, as detailed on the PlayStation Blog today:

Tamriel Unlimited also debuts ESO's new optional membership package, ESO Plus. With this premium membership service, players will be granted free access to all of the game's DLC game packs; bonuses to XP, gold, and crafting; and a monthly allotment of Crowns to purchase items from the Crown Store. What's the Crown Store, you ask? This is an all-new merchant store to ESO full of optional cosmetic and convenience items you can purchase for Crowns, a new currency allowing you to buy content directly from PlayStation Store. You'll be able to fully enjoy ESO without being a member, but we think you'll really enjoy the benefits if you have fun playing the game.6

Those that don't enroll in ESO Plus can still expect free patches that implement fixes and other improvements along with optional DLC offerings you can purchase to add more adventures to the already-enormous game.
