If you are a big fan of The Elder Scrolls series, with the latest game being Skyrim, prepare for the big news.
I was really looking forward to this game. But when u delay this long. Noty
Actually the game itself scared me away, not the delay. Maybe they have fixed most of the issues but I still won't support monthly subscriptions.
The game did improve alot. Enjoyed it alot more than i did in beta. I got it when it was 15 bucks for game and 1 month. I seriously hope that they do not try to make it 60 bucks and $15 mo on consoles. It is not true elder scrolls game, but if you look at is as just mmo, it is pretty good besides the price tag.
^In my opinion no game on this earth is worth 60$ + 15$ per month. There are so many other games on the market, I don't want to support these kind of business models.
@bloodborn you don't understand. The 15$ a month is for free content updates and maintain servers. Your money is used well. The game is drastically changing with new features and improvments. And wow is still 10mill or so subs with this exact same model for 10 years so it works
Saying the "model" works because a few titles can profit on it is not a good argument.
Yeah the initial reactions to the game have put me off it, I havent looked in to it since release to see if they've fixed a lot of the problems and complaints people were having. But there have been a tonne of MMO's that were disappointing at launch but evolved in to a much more enjoyable experience over time. I'd say it will be no different for ESO eventually, if it hasnt happened already. I'm aware a simple Google search would answer my question, but its christmas, i'm allowed a day off :D
Just get Final Fantasy XIV it's the much better MMO anyway and has a huge update coming soon. I will look into ES Online again when the console version hits however.
Monthly subscription, in app purchases or payed dlc every few months that rises the caps. At end of the day they always get your money, just some methods are more obvious than others.
I would rather pay $15 a month than play a blood sucking free to play game that constantly spam me with in game item sales or break the community with dozens of insulting pay gates. Free to play is a plague in this industry and it's concepts are creeping into retail products as well. I would like to see this business model wipe off the face earth.
You say: The 15$ a month is for free content updates and maintain servers. Are you that retarded? You pay 15 dollars for free content? THINK If they ask 15 dollars a month and lets say 5 dollars a month for servers (though thats bullshit too), it leaves 10 dollars a month for "free" content. So this content that should be released every month, should be about 1/6 of extra content of the base game, considering the game costs 60 and you pay +/- 10 dollars every month Besides, minecraft, terraria, guild wars, LOL, Soul Sacrifice Delta, ... all have online multiplayer, all have FREE updates and DONT have an online subscription. Not a single game is worth a 15 dollars a month in content. Not one. Period.
Two videos say it all. And there is adult humor in these commentaries. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... I tried to play it but I could not get past the constant comparison to Skyrim...or Morrowind...or Oblivion. Those games with all their bugs were just so much better. Each made such leaps over the previous title yet with ESO I felt like it was a tremendous step backwards. Bugs can be fixed but when Zeni demonstrate no interest in fixing major gameplay decisions that everyone despises then I am out of the game. There are just too many incredible titles out and on the way to bother with ESO.
I don't support monthly subscriptions or paid multiplayer
Monthly subscription isn't the worst thing if the game is worth it, I paid for Everquest for 6 yrs gladly.
Will this share servers with pc? If not I expect it has zero chance of success on console. Just won't be a big enough population...they waited to long for release.
Maxor said it best.
This is still coming to next-gen consoles ? Wow, talk about being late, already forgot about it, not even gonna bother, 2015 is gonna be PACKED with awesome games.
Prepare for a few thousand sales.. It got horrible reviews at launch and PC subs are dying now as its not a great game. That's not the main issue though the main issue is it's took too damn long people expected this along with PC release back in 2013 and got told nothing.. They probably still have pre-orders from back then too..
The game came out in April 2014...
No one wants this crap><
I was expecting "The Elder Scrolls Online Is Officially Coming to an End" as the title when i started reading it.
Imao! Its dead in the water, they trying to pull another defiance or destiny O.o.
Not really sure why people hate this game. The business model is 10 yrs old, and people enjoy it. Not really hurting the industry in any way. My roommate plays a free-to-play mmo called age of wushu and spends over 30$ a month on average.
Agreed. This game is a POS. I was part of the beta program and couldn't force myself to play it longer than 1 hour. Unless you like MMO's, don't bother with this game. Real Elder scrolls we're come to love it aint!
Its a crappy MMO as well.
The game got so much to fix , it's not even funny .... at least they had the good sense of not releasing to the slaughter on consoles yet . After the complete rehaul of FFXIV into a brand new game , anything is possible , but i dont hold much faith into this . After all even if they do fix the issues , it doesnt really feel much like a proper ES game .
They have fixed pretty much all the issues. I played about 7 months ago but stopped. This month my roommate picked the game up so I resubed and all my old complaints seem to be resolved. The lip synching is perfect, haven't ran into one bug, and as long as we're in the same group, no phasing
Yeah, I played it at launch and with so many issues plaguing it, I stopped playing it. I've read that the big issues have been resolved and lots of smaller issues were as well. I think I'll wait till the console release to play it again. If they delayed the console version to try and perfect the game, I could only imagine that the console release will be what the game really should have been like at launch, plus a ton of new content.
I enjoyed it on PC for a while so as long as a friend picks it up on PS4 I'll jump back on board even if its just for the free month. ESO is neither the best MMO or a true ES game but I could play it again as long as its with a buddy.
Wait, hold on. Is the PS5, Xbox Two and Wii Three set to release in 2015?
No, they isn't.
It's only planned for PS4 and XBone so this shouldn't be in the Wii U section.
But some Wii U owners might be looking forward to buying a PS4 or an Xbox One to play this game. Nothing wrong with that.
It's not about speculated scenarios, its about using tags appropriately when submitting stories. If this game isn't coming to the Wii U, then there's no reason for the article to be in the Wii U section. Period. Anyone looking to get a PS4 or XBone can just as easily find it in those sections. This shouldn't be tagged with Wii U. It can get plenty of advertisement in the proper sections that match the story and the consoles it is meant for; putting the Wii U tag in just to petition Wii U owners is unnecessary and can only end up causing confusion in those that assume before reading. False advertisement is a no-no.
This game was great but like all other Elder Scrolls games since I played Morrowind on the Xbox, I just don't like K&M on TES games. Played a bit on the computer and it has a great community so it will be a nice addition to consoles. I wonder what happened to make it such a huge delay though.
You can have it. Give me Elder Scrolls 6 or Fallout 4.
"Hooray! This is just what we wanted!" - No one ever.
Lol they are setting themselves up for failure Releasing this earlier this year on X1/PS4 would have been ideal because of the lack of games, but few people are going to buy into this next year when heavy hitters start coming out
Monthly subs - No thanks I played the beta. It was okay, nothing special. Not worth paying full price for the game THEN forking out monthly subscriptions to be able to play it. Should have went the Guild Wars 2 way. Pay full price for the game then free online.
In that case, I would've seriously thought about getting it... but with a monthly subscription there is no way I will ever play this game.
That's how I feel about subscription plans on consoles period, honestly. Never invested in any game that used a subscription plan, and I never used PS+. If I owned an XBox, I wouldn't bother getting Live, either. I've yet to see any substantial difference in the quality of online servers between paid and unpaid; paid still has to deal with all the same bs that unpaid goes through, lately, so why would I want to pay for that?[Yes, yes, I know; freebie games. Still not enough to hold my interest in paying for multiplayer that's traditionally been free for most generations up till now, outside of XBox]
For "The PS4 and Xbox One Consoles." Not WiiU...so the WiiU shouldn't be tagged.
it has to contend against FFXIV...scary.
Does anyone really still care about this? I don't know why they're still releasing it after people know how terrible it is.
Make it $40 and FTP and this MIGHT do good.
With all the patches,content and even more content coming. I want to thank PC gamers for beta testing and helping to improve the game in time for a console release. And to the kids complaining about a monthly fee. The mmorpg genera is not for you. In fact we don't want you in our games at all.
You do know there are TONNS of free to play mmorpgs (100% free with optional cash shop items). And even more buy-in mmorpgs (buy the game outright, then the game is free to play online, no forced monthly subscription). Blizzard has only gotten away with it for so long because they were like the OG mmorpg that got hugely popular, and back then massive servers did cost a lot to run. Others like lineage came along, had the pay to play aspect. Then opted out for free to play with cash shop option. Monthly subscriptions is so 10+ years ago.
Played most of them and they are not for dedicated mmorpg players at all. Some of them could have been good if was not for a design around getting the user to pay for something. I get that younger gamers want "free" mmorpg games. Or people that just want to play a few hours a week. But for people that play 10-20 hours a week in the same game. Don't play these "free" games.
60$ base fee w/ no support is so 30 years ago
f2p is trash and worse than p2p FACT wont bother mentionin the community on f2p games...they are just the worst
What a great attitude you have there, LarZen! Happy Holidays!
"If you are a big fan of The Elder Scrolls series, with the latest game being Skyrim, prepare for the big news." No these are really not big news since elder scrolls online is terrible and complete shit compared to morowind,oblivion or skyrim. Everyone should stop playing this garbage so they start working hard on their next REAL elder scrolls game.
not even the same developers so it doesn't matter if people play it. If anything it'll just cancel any future releases if this doesn't sell well...
It's not very good. It might thrive on consoles given most players won't know what to expect from a mmo. It's very generic and missing industry standard quality of life features. Plus it's got the worst group system out there. Shame
Better change $15 month to free-to-play, oh well I'm sure a few will buy it.
We've known about the 2015 release for ages....
Already way too busy and way too many games coming out in 2015 to spend time and money on an MMO. I may get the game for collection purposes sometime in the future when it is cheaper, but no plans on playing it unless there is a gaming drought. Still waiting on TES6
I thought I remember a rumor where the person swore up and down the game is canceled for consoles. Either I dreamed it or it was a rumor.
Not sure about this one with the delay and my friends opinion of it that its hard to play with friends as the design is counter intuitive for playing with friends. He hasn't played in a while so has that changed at all? Another friend wants this to be able to absorb himself in another elder scrolls universe but I fear he won't enjoy it because of the MMO elements of the game.
15$ to try it out isnt so bad imo , I will give it a shot. I may like it despite other people's opinions.
This game doesn't deserve a monthly subscription.
Dead on arrival
TESO = $60 + $15 month for Crap Guild Wars 2 = $50 and that's it for Greatness So no consoler is confused or mislead, TESO does NOT play like TES Skyrim Morrowind etc.. TESO plays like World of Warcraft, a really generic version at that. Just being informative.
Hope they do away with the monthly subscription on consoles, even if they limit it to 16 or 32 players in a lobby or realm or whatever at a time, that would be fine by me, not entirely sure consoles could handle more than that anyways, though I could be wrong.
i'd like to try it out on console, hopefully there'll be a trial, because i've seen very mixed reactions to the game and i want to try it out before laying out forty to fifty quid.
