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!
Happy , sad, now excited..
when this first came out to be pre-ordered almost a year ago... I went ahead and pre ordered the game, then after finding out that you had to pay $15 a month- I abruptly canceled my payment. now that I have learned they have done away with the subscription cost, I am once again excited and willing to pay for this game... because there's no question that this game will be pretty good considering Skyrim was great, however the online component may not be as wonderful as it sounds.... nevertheless this game company has created the best games money can buy so I can't be just dismiss the potential of the game... as long as I don't have to play with everyone all the time and can go off on my own and do my own things against computer controlled opponents I will be happy because let's face it some people have too much time on their hands and end up making games like this annoying to play by finding every little trick and glitch to make their fighting abilities overly efficient. Or they just ruin whatever you may be doing for the sake of it (GTAonline)
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!
Can't wait to explore the wide world of Tamriel!
I've been looking forward to playing The Elder Scrolls Online for a while now, and the screen shots I've seen so far only make the wait til its release date all the more painful. I look forward to exploring the lands of Morrowind again after having played The Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind so many years ago on the original Xbox.
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 $420. All in all, I'm just not going to pay for this.
Wait it Out
What I'm doing with this game is that I will wait. I agree with all the others in the sense that not many people are willing to pay 180$ a year for one game. Yes, it is supposed to be "Content Packed" but I could by 3 games for the price of one ideally. I think that once it releases and their sales figures are low, they will take away or reduce the fee. At that point I would buy the game. It was a big mistake on Bethesda's part, they lost most of their fan base by doing this and now only hardcore/pro gamers are going to buy ESO. Not buying this game unless the fee is dropped or reduced. Just buy Destiny, Watchdogs, or The Division instead.
