The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Announced

 

A few weeks ago, Australian Retailer EB Games recalled all copies of The Elder Scrolls Online, including prepaid cards. This led to the rumour spreading that TESO would become Free to Play soon. While it's not entirely true, Bethesda Softworks, TESO's developer, has sent out a press release which states both the release date for consoles, and announces the game won't be subscription-based any longer. This means you'll only need to pay for the game itself, and won't need to pay monthly fees.

 The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Announced

 

As of the 17th of March, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will be available on PC, and this version will be without subscriptions. All current owners of The Elder Scrolls Online will be updated to Tamriel Unlimited for free in March. Also, Bethesda will make an 'ESO Plus' available for people who want to pay a monthyl fee for a premium membership with 'exclusive in-game bonuses, monthly crowns to be used in the Store and all DLC'. Current memberships will be changed to ESO Plus memberships on release.

The Tamriel Unlimited-edition will also be released on PS4 and Xbox One on the 9th of June, so console-gamers can finally explore all of Tamriel with their friends, all in a single game. With the press-release, a new CGI Trailer was published. You can check this out below.

 

 

Will you be picking up The Elder Scrolls Online, now that it's scrapping the monthly subscription fees? Let us know.

Now without the monthly subscription I might actually play this. Me and a good few of my friends are big elder scrolls fans.Quote

Same here, loved Morrowind, played some Oblivion at a friends' house (may need to buy it soon), and pumped about 400 hours into Skyrim on PS3. Gotta say, the PC-version is a blessing. The loading times on PS3 were horrible.Quote

All optional subscription based MMOs are terrible - they nerf free accounts and promote pay to win. I only support GW2's model.Quote

Me too! I beta'd TESO from the very beginning and we got nothing for our troubles not even a discount on the finished product, but we were offered a limited edition statue IF we paid for the legends edition when released... WTF! I did enjoy the game but I begrudged paying £69.99 for it No way! Now though I will be partaking in some elder scrolls action.Quote

I played the beta and I know it was a beta but it was utter pants.
I'll give the full game another try if they come out with a trial as I'm a big fan of the Elder Scrolls series but I'm not going to play a game that has ludicrous amounts of real money marketplace crap like SWTOR, Makes the game feel cheap.Quote
