Elder Scrolls Online Now Subscription-Free

Posted March 18, 2015 by Kat in News

Good news for those interested in trying out Elder Scrolls Online but haven’t yet – the MMO has officially joined the ranks of subscription-free titles.  As of March 17th, no paid subscription will be required in order to access the game – the only purchase required is of the game itself.

Bethesda has announced the transition over into the Tamriel Unlimited edition of the title, which enables this new model.  A subscription will still be available in the form of ESO Plus, which offers extra goodies.  For those who already have a subscription, they will be given the option to upgrade to the Plus model, which includes a 10% progression boost and 1500 crowns (in-game currency) a month.

All regular updates and new gameplay will come to the purchased game free of charge, while the update will affect both open and closed accounts.  This will also mean that those who have stopped playing are being offered an invitation back to the game.

Game director Matt Firor said of the changes, “Our fans are our biggest inspiration, and we’ listened to their feedback on the entertainment experience they want.  We know that Elder Scrolls fans want choice when it comes to how they play and how they pay, and that is what they will get.

The console versions of the title, which are due out in June, will follow the same model.
