ESO Announces Subscriber Loyalty Program

Zenimax Online Studios today announced an exciting new incentive for players of The Elder Scrolls Online with the revealing of the upcoming Subscriber Loyalty Program. Similar to the feature seen in other popular MMO titles, such as Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV, subscribers will be treated to a variety of in-game rewards over specific periods of subscription time - as special recognition for their support and service to The Elder Scrolls Online community. (PC, PS4, The Elder Scrolls Online, Xbox One)

They sure know how to keep the "DONT CARE ABOUT THE GAME I MUST HAVE THAT EXCLUSIVE ITEM" crowd .

Not that i really care but still ,i think they should of started it with "if you sub by X date ,you'll be eligible !" Bring old members and fresh one at the same time. A more profitable win situation for Zeminax, imo.

Are people still playing this game? And is it free to play yet?
DanteVFenris666  +   158d ago
Nope it has about a million subscribers and I'm one. Free to play is shit and ruins games. It causes unexpected budget plans so they go cheap cause they don't know how much they are making every month.

Lots of content is planned for eso and that because we are subbing not f2p shit

This move is just to soften the blow for when they go F2P, it's unavoidable these days it seems.

I got an email through about this, so apparently I have been subscribing since launch. So I don't still play this game, but I do still pay.

I'm OK with that. I consider it a vote in favour of subscription games over free to play ones. Fairly sure I subscribe to FFXIV too, and that game is worse.

May try TESO again at some point, but I just have too much to play at the moment.

I don't understand why this game gets the grief it does. I played the alpha and beta and it was very reminiscent of Skyrim in almost every way.Yes there are obvious changes required to make it an MMO but it still felt very much like an Elder's Scroll game.

So what you're saying is you didn't buy it?!

HILARIOUS!
Are_The_MaDNess  +   158d ago
its only an elder scrolls game in name and lore alone.

ESO does not capture the feeling of TES at all.
Its stiff, Bland, Repetitive and boring.

yet i still play skyrim every week since launch.....
DanteVFenris666  +   158d ago
Maybe play it with someone... Don't play it like skyrim because it isn't. Expect to be I don't know how they advertised it, which is fusing mmo and elder scrolls elements in 1. And it's only getting better justice system and spell crafting are on there way in future updates.

Unlike you I've probably given it a lot more time. Eso is leagues ahead of skyrim in content, lore, quest design. There are a few things skyrim does better, but those things are being improved on in updates

I'm still waiting for a discount on the subscription fees, i really want to play this game and have a PC capable of running it but i refuse to pay €15 a month to play a game, it's ridiculous.
DanteVFenris666  +   158d ago
Have you heard of wow? 15$ sub fee for 10 years now. Hasn't dropped a cent sense launch. The reason why you pay is for constant new content, and to pay for costs of servers which run them about 5-8 buck a person per month. Then the rest of the 8-10 dollars goes into development. So if you like the game there's no reason not to if your having fun.

I'm subbed and I'm not even playing it just because I like their future plans and want to support them until next time I relog. 15$ Is not a lot of money. I've known retail people who afford their own house and this game no problem. It's pocket change, unless your a kid and then id say that's a bonus of the sub fee it blocks people who don't have money, like kids and such.

This is usually when a game begins to start the descent into the F2P abyss. If a company makes a good enough game, people will pay to play, but if it's a sub with no substance, it usually goes this same route.

Examples:
Rift
SWTOR
LOTRO

So basically this game is already going F2P?
Xristo  +   158d ago
I took a break after my free month but re-subbed a few weeks ago. Phasing is still an issue but I run pretty solo so it doesn't affect me that much. Bugs are hard to find and bots are all but gone. I know it's not for everyone but I'm loving it!

This game needs to start dying so that Suckthesda can get moving on my Fallout 4! Make it an MMO and watch me burn your headquarters down :)
