In order to encourage more people to play the game, publisher Bethesda announced a new pricing system. The Elder Scrolls Online would now be renamed to The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited and it would be ditching the mandatory subscription fee. Instead, players would only have to pay for a copy of the game, although there would be an optional monthly subscription fee that provided extra bonuses.
Today, the Tamriel Unlimited update goes live but unfortunately Bethesda hasn’t released a new pricing plan for the standalone game. However, the publisher has revealed that the monthly subscription system is now called Elder Scrolls Online Plus (ESO Plus) and it that it will cost $15 a month, which is exactly what it cost to subscribe to the game before. That $15 will provide “exclusive in-game bonuses”, “access to all DLC packs while a member” and “a monthly allotment of crowns”.
With the Justice System, stolen goods have value but they can only be sold to fences. On top of this, if guards witness a crime they’ll demand a bounty, and if the player can’t pay it they will have to flee or the guards will attack. The Justice System also includes the option to carry out justice too with “active PVP”, which could be a deterrent for would-be criminals or it could lead to abuses of power.
Will you be playing The Elder Scrolls Online now that it’s buy-to-play? Do you think it should be completely free to play instead?
