Elder Scrolls Online – 1′ class=’wp-image-13150′ data-lazy-src=’https://verifiedtasks.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/the-elder-scrolls-online-1.jpeg’ height=’167′ src=’data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg%20xmlns=’http://www.w3.org/2000/svg’%20viewBox=’0%200%20250%20167’%3E%3C/svg%3E’ width=’250’>
Now, to play the title, just buy the game, then access is unlimited and free… After having tried as best as possible to channel players to the subscription model, the MMORPG throws in the towel and switches to the free model.
This makes it increasingly complex for publishers to offer games on a subscription basis. The list of titles that ended up switching to the free model is getting a little longer, even if some exceptions remain such as World of Warcraft Final Fantasy XIV Eve Online, or Wildstar.
It’s only from June 9th and the release of The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 that the free model will be deployed on consoles.
Free, but not devoid of any transaction. TESO is now opting for microtransactions on the subscription form to benefit from in-game advantages. Packages ranging from 30 to 180 days and at prices from 12.99 euros to 65.94 euros offer the possibility to benefit from more or less Crowns, access to CSDs, and faster progress thanks to various bonuses.
The good news is that The Elder Scolls Online does not restrict any features or progression in free mode, unlike some titles that continue to reserve certain games such as Raids or other activities only to players willing to pay a few euros.
