The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited
The Cost of Awesomeness
Price of the game + monthly fee + Xbox Live fee + the loss of sleep, skipped meals, daydreaming about Tamriel at work . . . WORTH IT! I am a console gamer through and through, but also a huge Elder Scrolls fan. So, I bought ESO for the PC because my wife was raving about it. She, too, is a huge Elder Scrolls fan. Skyrim, the best game ever! (Her words). We’ve spent entire weekends playing ESO together. You can play alone or group with other players for almost every objective. Other players can and will help with missions, even if you’re not grouped. When ESO comes out for Xbox One, we’re there. Didn’t even mention the PvP gameplay – AWESOME!
NO MORE SUBSCRIPTIONS
For everyone who would be weary about buying this because of the monthly subscription, the monthly subscription has been waived. There is now only the one time purchase fee. A monthly subscription can be purchased if you wish, and grants bonus content and crowns to spend in the in-game store, but is not necessary for play. This game looks super awesome and i'm excited to join in
In Bethesda I Trust
Bethesda in my mind has made some of the best console video games ever. Since there is no subscription fee I see no reason not to pre order this game. Say goodbye to 200 hours of my social life this summer.
Seems like a good game, but left out one detail.
This game may be by far, the best MMORPG to date, especially for consoles. Reading up on it's story and how it will be played (it's PvP as well as the game itself) It may blow every other MMORPG out of the water. Although, the summary of the game on this page forgot to mention one CRITICAL piece of information. It will, in fact, have a $15/month subscription fee. It will not be free to play. This subscription fee also comes with the $60 original fee to buy the game. Although, you will get to play for one whole month (hold applause *sarcasm*) before you will have to pay the monthly fee in order to continue playing. Which sucks, I know. But it is an MMO. If it's as successful, content loaded, and as big of a world as they make it out to be, it could very well work. But needless to say, they will have to be pouring out tons of new content/expansions to keep subscribers interested. Hopefully, they will all be free. But if they load it with tons of microtransactions, as well as the monthly fee and the cash shop. They might as well have committed suicide to The Elder Scrolls Online.
stop console subscriptions!
it's bad enough that the prices for these games is on a steep incline, and they show little signs of stopping. yet now we have a game for a console which we dished out hundreds of dollars for, bought accessories, the subscription for xbx live, then the games, and now they want a subscription fee. as if the company who developed the game wasn't making enough profit from the Elder Scrolls franchise as it is. Why must there be a fee? i was so interested into buying this title that I was going to order it a few moments ago, but when i read the disclaimer about the subscription fee i decided that this game, regardless of how cool it looked, was not for me. Buying this game will undoubtedly cause fees as such to become a fad and soon even games like Call of Duty will require a subscription. STOP CONSOLE SUBSCRIPTIONS!
Really lookin' forward to Elder Scrolls Online!
I can Hardly wait to play this! I'm really looking forward to seeing how Morrowwind has advanced graphically since Elder Scrolls 3. I'll probably be sinking some serious hours into The Elder Scrolls online once it comes out.
Every review about this i see people complaining about the monthly subscription. It clearly states that there is no subscription needed!
Don't doubt it yet
Don't give Bethesda a bad name yet they gave you guys amazing games like fallout doom and elder scrolls series okay it may be a terrible experience with pc right now but it's probably just a test run to see what will happen if they would ever make games that is subscription based it is their first unless I'm wrong but have they ever let they fans down before not I but anyway just watch when eso drops on console it will be the best experience yet maybe even goty remember it isn't released until the 2015 of December maybe they will delay hopefully they do because that means whatever they failed on pc to be fixed on console instead of remastering it with better graphics and same mechanism if it is delayed it will mean that it wasn't ready and they made improvements think about it and watch when they be on top cause 10/10 I bet you're still playing elder scrolls five with mods or not a 2011 game still popular in 2015
Just say "NO!" to console subscriptions
I'm sure this game will be very good and fun to play, but the $15 a month is going to kill it. I was going to buy it on the release date and will not be buying it at all because of this monthly fee. Come on Bethesda this is not a PC and your pushing away gamers like me who only play on the weekends.
An enormous let down
I don't have much to say regarding the game itself. I've only played the beta, which was pretty darn good. The one thing that holds me back COMPLETELY is the price of owning and playing this game. Here is the math I did to figure out how much it would cost to play this game for one year: $60 (the game itself) + $15 (monthly subscription fee) * 12 (months in a year) = $240. This DOESN'T include the price of XBOX LIVE either. I can buy 4 brand new xbox games with that money. If I were to play the ESO for another year, it would cost me $420. All in all, I'm just not going to pay for this.
