Elder Scrolls Online Moves to B2P Model
Well the speculation is over. The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) is officially dropping its subscription on March 17th for the PC version of the MMORPG as the team at Zenimax preps for the console launch of the game on June 9th. ESO will still offer an optional subscription that will allow subscribers to get all released DLC content, in game bonuses, and a monthly crowns allowance to spend in the game's cash shop.
From the team at Zenimax:
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited includes all the great gameplay from the original PC/Mac game, plus all the updates and content additions, including the exciting new Justice and Champion systems. All existing PC/Mac game accounts, open or closed, will be updated to the Tamriel Unlimited edition in March and former players will be invited back to the game at that time to experience all that is new in the world. New players will make a one-time purchase of the game and play, without restrictions, for as long as they like – without game subscription fees. Tamriel Unlimited will be supported with special, optional downloadable content available for purchase and an in-game Crown Store for convenience and customization items. Regular updates and new gameplay will be offered to all players to enjoy free of additional charges.
Check out Zenimax's livestream today at noon Eastern time for the full breakdown.
Since this moves the game to a "buy-to-play" model for those that don't currently own the game, we won't be covering the game on this site so I'll just close with, "Yes, Jason. You were right." :)
