In this article ESO Masters discusses the reasons why The Elder Scrolls Online may have the strength to survive in the MMO universe and also hits on reasons why it may find itself on a sinking ship in the coming months.
We got our review unit today so we can start the reviews on Sunday but are under embargo from publishing a review until later. Curious to see how it plays vs the Beta.
Curious, too. The beta was very shaky and had quite a few glitches. I love the Elder Scrolls series so I'm really hoping they can give it a good shine but I feel like that's a lot of polish work to do in a short time period. We'll see, though.
I did not have as many glitches as I expected but I was hoping to get away from that constant grind that is so common with games of this type. To me it could have been any MMORPG of the last 10 years as here was little if any change of significant notice. I know the branching storylines and such but we saw that with The Old Republic.
If it does, it will do so without my money.....
Same with me, I tend to vote with my wallet on these issues. I'm not willing to pay a subscription fee to play just one game, especially considering it has a full-price entry fee and supports micro-transactions as well. I just can't condone or justify supporting a game that incorporates all 3 of these price models at the same time. That's the only reason I skipped on Final Fantasy VIX even though it looked like I would enjoy it a lot.
pc maybe, consoles, with the exception of a few, no , i for one was looking forward to this game, but i got bored quick with the beta.
Definitely not on consoles. They aren't an MMO crowd plus Xbox One players will have to pay the $15/mo sub fee on top of Xbox Live... yeah, won't happen.
A realm Reborn seems to be doing well on console's. I'm getting this for ps4 know quite a few other people that are too. Time will tell :) The main hardware this game will have a problem with will be Xbox One as like you said, xbox live as well as a sub (and the game) But all the best to however / whatever everyone plays on.
A realm reborn is doing great on ps3 and many are buying for PS4
What's going on? Did everyone suddenly become poor? It's $15. I've paid for mmo's for years. It's not that big of a deal. Get a job.
Thank you. I have been paying monthly sub fee's for games since before I was out of high school for games like dark age of camelot. I can't believe how many people cry about it now.
For everyone but Xbox players. For Xbox players it's $60 for the game, $15 for the sub fee, and an additional $5-$10/mo (depending if you buy a year in advance or not) for XBL service.
I am in favour of subcription MMOs, but TESO is an abomination
I favor paid MMOs as well. Haven't had a chance to play the final ESO release so I'm hoping it's not THAT bad.
Hope it does...F2P sucks! Head start in 13 hours!
I love elder scrolls but from what I've heard this game has been in development for ages and its graphics and gameplay are dated it wont stop me buying it when its free to play though. If its a flop the positive will be that bethesda will really push the next eso game to be the best thing ever.
I was excited and then they said a 15$ a month sub and was like I'm out
I played a few beta weekends with my wife and old DAOC / WOW / GW2 guild. Many in the guild liked it, but my wife and I did not. We both played many MMOs and liked Skyrim so I thought it would just be great. It wasn't the bugs that scared me away - some of Bethesda's games have been awfully buggy - but it was the staleness of the world and the somehow slow "action" combat. It felt sluggish and I cannot imagine it with hundreds of people PvP'ing over a keep or area. I'm fine paying subscriptions (PS Network and WoW top my list of greatest values, along with Amazon Prime), but this specific game is not worth it to me. I told my guildies that if it is going strong in 3 months, I would at least give it a whirl. Easy to tell in 60 days if you are going to stay in a game, and most of us have wasted $75 on much stupider things. Hearthstone packs, LoL skins, virtual anything...
I would love to play it.....but $15 a month? Not me I will stick to Titan fall and Destiny.
nope, F2P in a year. Subscription based MMOs just don't work.. except for WoW obviously
Nope...final fansasy: ARR on the other hand will be getting my subscription...Elder Scrolls Online just seems to be lacking something
