The Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition
Been through a lot of betas
My betas were for the PC so it was kind of hard to really get completely into it, I feel the keyboard/mouse combo is just kind of clunky but I'm no PC gamer other than a few MMOs. This MMO is well worth the money monthly and it's worth paying Xbox Live to play it on the console, there is just something about the controller that makes it so involving. Like some of the big name MMOs out there this one has everything from PvP to Crafting and standing around dancing with friends. But an interesting Elder Scrolls exclusive emote that I just loved is /lute /drum and /flute, playing instruments while others dance was just more fun than it should have been. Exploring is HEAVILY encouraged as with any Elder Scrolls game, I often found myself just exploring instead of doing my quests just for fun. The loot is also very nice, big tip LEARN LOCKPICKING FAST and learn to spot those chests or someone will come and grab it. Look in barrels and drawers, most people don't. Read books! Just like in Elder Scrolls, taking the time to stop and read books laying around can be rewarding! Guild creation was free in the beta and I think it still is, I have came across a similar guild system in another game by the name of Jade Dynasty, there are guilds but then there are alliances the guilds then join and guild wars. I loved that you could also choose the voice of your character, which really makes things less monotone. I could go on and on about the game, I really could but I think I may bore people, so I'll just close by saying: It's worth the monthly subscription and I think this could be the game to kill WoW, I think paying for a superior online service is totally worth it (talking about the yearly subscription) and that I think the console version could have more potential than the PC version. P.S. /playdead
A Must Have!
TES series has been phenomenal if you have the Xbox One do yourself a favor and preorder. It's almost a given this game will win GOTY as all other titles in the series have won. If you're reading this take the time to go look up the videos and the concept of this game. If you consider yourself a gamer you literally need this. Lets pray for the servers to hold up.
Find out how much it takes to repair servers, find out how much it takes to pay employees to run maintenance, find out how it takes to run how ever many servers they need for one, ps4 and computer, find how much it will take to create any new dlc/ expansion now subtract that from the combined subscription payment of all the players and it will not be as much as you think they will get. If it goes free to play the quality of the experience will drop extremely and dlc will be basically nonexistent but just 100 dollars for the imperial edition is a good price if you compare to other franchses
I was excited to get this game until I played the Beta let me tell you without a single doubt in my mind that the 15$ a month sub for the game is not worth it! They should have left The Elder Scrolls stay where it belonged with the Bethesda team. Zenimaxx had some great idea's but fall short on the real game. Also for the people who say well it is just the beta let me tell you something about mmo Beta's things rarely change from beta to final product I say this having played many in beta and final product. So on an end note don't waste your money plus who locks a race behind a paywall that is just wrong.
I'm absolutely getting this, the imperial has been my favorite and we do get the other pack with the scuttler with this right?
they could have charged more for this , but $99 is a very good reasonable price and I for sure will be getting it!
Could of been a great game for next gen
The game would of be one of the best games for the XONE, BUT you have to pay a $15 fee each month to play. That is what will be the downfall of this game. It WILL GO FREE TO PLAY, just give it time MMO'S always do, once this is F2P this will be one of the best games the has come out for the XONE so far. I have the collectors edition payed off I will not be paying for that fee after the first month. I am just going to wait like everyone else is for this game to go F2P. If you like online games this is a buy, if you prefer Skyrim DO NOT GET THIS GAME. You know what I mean when I say that.
This has to be the worst MMO and word Elder Scrolls game every made don't waste your money. No economy bots camping bosses no auction house no reason to craft and crafting often fails and eats the hard to get mats you farmed for hours and then you have no where to sell your gear you crafted mounts 47,000 gold and mobs drop 1 gold each bosses sometimes drop 2 or 5 gold sooooo Yeah the people how made this game have no understanding of MMOs and if you don't believe me just waste your money play the game and then kick yourself. Because you have been warned.. I hate world of warcraft right now but I would recommend that for Wildstar over this game anyday.
The fall of what could have been a great game
Bring a 15$ a month subscription fee to console gaming was a horrible idea. I have anticipated this game for some time now however, I'll wait. Give it 6-12 months, buy it used, don't pay the subscription. By then it will be free to play.
when I first heard of ESO I was like: YES! But now I just want every bonus possible no doubt eventually the fee will get annoying but I just say: AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! The Elder Scrolls Online will be awesome but if you want better info on how the extras look/work go to this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMcmRkrMxvg. So this is zackatack signing off. P.S. I know how to spell zack attack, just this is my type of trademark.
