The Elder Scrolls Online Xbox One and PS4 release date is two months after PC

The Elder Scrolls Online will launch for PC and Mac in April 2014.

Upcoming MMO The Elder Scrolls Online will be released for PC and Mac on April 4, 2014, Bethesda has announced.

The Elder Scrolls Online will also be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the company added, but not until June 2014.

Alongside the announcement, Bethesda released a new trailer for the upcoming subscription-based game, highlighting the conflict between The Elder Scrolls Online's three factions and the massive PvP battles that follow.

Invites for the game's secretive closed beta were distributed to some users back in November.

I was looking forward to this then just thought about the other MMO's i've played and how quickly i got bored of them plus the subscription fee put me off aswell. Think i'll wait for the next Fallout and Elder Scroll (If they make one).

yum yum.... who cares that its a paid subscription. Its going to be well worth it.


are people that poor, that they can't afford this?

MMO's almost always require a subscription so why are people bitching about them?  Oh right...consoles....

Mac support, because those are the people who will pay double for something that's not worth it :p Like the shitty sub fee that will have people stare at it and turn 180.

To keep quality and content going I can see a subscription fee... $15 is just a bit too much. Half that would be about right.

Anyone who says "clearly" this game is gonna suck is just an idiot, plain and simple. I played the BETA I think it was 2 maybe 3 weekends ago and it was amazing. Loved every second of it and I am SO HAPPY they have it as a pay2play, it is definitely pay 2 play quality and now I get everything in the game for 15 a month instead of having to buy armor, but quest, buy to win, MUCH MUCH better when an MMO is p2p especially one as top notch as this. Most of these whiney little bitches are either mad because they are to poor for 15 a month (which is very VERY sad) or they are just mad because they are releasing this instead of TES 6. Everything about this game was Elder Scrolls. What REALLY makes me happy is that 15 dollar a month fee is gonna keep ALL THE IDIOTS out so just serious player.

I hope these "ignorant" people stays away from this game.

I dont want to play with people who says "they need to make tes6 first" , "bethesda gone greedy too".

Skyrim released back at 2011 , Oblivion released back at 2006 , Morrowind released back at 2002 , Daggerfall released back at 1996.

So yeah you have to wait at least 2 years to see another "Elder Scrolls" title.


Elder Scrolls games my by Bethesda Softworks / Bethesda Game Studio.

This game is made by ZeniMax Online Studio.

Releasing on PC first hey...not sure this is a smart move, as others have stated the game could be a massive derp, if so, they are going to struggle to sell it on the larger market that is consoles.

Their subscription fee is the reason I'm not going to bother with this game. As much as I love TES, this is some Microsoft/EA style money hungry bullshit.

I was in beta and i can say it only lives up to average 2014 standards. You want something better try blade and souls or ffxiv lol

@maximo You must not have gotten a beta invite yet.  From what I have seen so far I am very disappointed.

@rob9999991 oh man someones back to subs for fuck sakes. It made sense in the 90's this is just greed

@CiTizenMaSSaKre I have to disagree.  I played the beta and am really disappointed in the way they have gone with it (as are A LOT of other people from reading the ESO beta forums).  At this point I'd maybe pay $30 for it with no subscription fee but not a penny more.  I'd have no problem paying a sub fee if the game was way better.

@HenrySix  True. I can wait 'til they drop the subscription model. It's not the money that's the issue, but the value. It just doesn't seem worth it.

@Sadek No this is just a MMO with Sub , just like any other MMO.

@SphinxDemonLol B&S and FF14 are plop compared to ESO. People who say ESO is a "shitty mmo" are mad because it's not free or because it doesn't have some ugly anime race in it.

The difference is, Guild wars 2 sucks. F2p and B2p games almost always suck.

@TwinStripeUK I was just joking bro. Anyone who supports flash, adobe or photoshop are not only senseless but also could run a chance of not owning a mac and money as well

@renerak @obsequies probably not no. I was just excited it was on mac ha. No way in hell would I pay more than 5 bucks for that on a sale. Let alone a sub

They made sense in the 00's. Not sure why everyone here keeps saying the 90's.

@sebbysebbseb @CiTizenMaSSaKre You are an idiot and know nothing about gaming. Pay2Play is the best way to handle MMO's. You think Free2play is actually free you moron? Yea you get the core game but then you have to pay for every other little thing. Like I said im happy it will be pay2play, i wish it went to 20 dollars a month to keep idiots like you out.

SphinxDemon

Lol I can definitely pay the 15$ for a game but this game is not worth that money. Have you even played the beta? It's slow and boring. Seriously. The only thing decent is the graphics.

As for races, ESO has more non - human races than most games. So Idk where your going with that statement

Okay then, here's a response without insults... If you want a better ongoing service, you have to pay for it - it's that simple. Running servers costs money, and there are A LOT of servers involved. You also get far better support, more regular updates and free expansions, missions, quests etc...


Free2play is a myth, as you have to use microtransactions in order to generate the revenue necessary to provide a decent service. That then puts the support onus on those who are willing to pay, and in order to make it worth their while you then have to support 'pay2win' strategies which just ruin games in my opinion.

pay2play isn't 'pathetic' - it's a model for MMOs which works very successfully, and has done for years now (and if it ain't broke, don't fix it). It reduces the number of time wasters, griefers etc, because nobody wants to spend cash doing that sort of thing.


Free to play MMOs are almost universally rubbish, and I doubt many people reading this would even know the names of 5 of them. Those they do know (like SW.TOR) were originally subs based, but moved to a free model because it was so poor nobody wanted to play it. it's currently dying a slow painful death..


Personally, I'll be paying the monthly subs, and if it ever goes F2P I'll stop playing as it's only a matter of time before they shut it down.

@CiTizenMaSSaKre .. OK online tough guy...Time to stop mouthing off and insulting people because it is easy to do when you are behind a keyboard. Here's an idea... Give your opinions and counter argue opinions you don't agree with without acting like a 12 year old.  That too hard?Whatever, it is probably past your bedtime anyway... Maybe you are just cranky.
