The Elder Scrolls Online may have been out for a while, in fact it's something we checked out back in 2015, but recent updates and new expansion called Elsweyr has made us re-evaluate our interests in Bethesda's co-op heavy MMO.
One can understand not wanting to spend the full $60 on The Elder Scrolls Online as its essentially a 2014 title (that was re-released in 2015 as Tamriel Unlimited). But when the price of ESO drops to $12, gamers on the sideline are probably taking note. To buy or not to buy, that's the dilemma now in GMG's Spring PC Gaming Sale with a return of historic low price on the Standard Edition of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, and a new historic low price for Imperial Editions at only $16.
Early last year, we checked out the PC version of The Elder Scrolls Online, the first MMO set in the Elder Scrolls universe and came away quite pleased. While a console version was originally supposed to launch shortly after the PC version of ESO, it got pushed out quite a ways, and eventually Bethesda announced that the console version would arrive concurrent with a subscription-less update of the game known as Tamriel Unlimited. Similar to how Guild Wars has worked, Tamriel Unlimited gives you all of the game's content in return for purchasing the retail box.
Got some not-so-savvy friends you'd like to get hooked on Elder Scrolls Online? Having trouble finding the right words to detail the game's splendor? Don't worry, Bethesda's got your back. In an effort to reel in newbies to the Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited world, the team has released an overview video that spells out the game's basics in slow, sumptuous detail. Mmm, dat narrative voice over...
Online subscriptions for MMO titles are normally a big money sink for gamers, but sometimes things change for the better. In a few months, The Elder Scrolls Online will be losing its required subscription based model to play in favor of a new offering.
