The Elder Scrolls Online No Longer Requires A Subscription

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has now gone live on PC and ditched the subscription format.


As of today, players need only pay for the game once and, as the title suggests, have unlimited access to the world with no subscription whatsoever. If you have already been playing ESO with a subscription then you will have the choice to upgrade to the Plus membership which will grant free access to all of the upcoming DLC, as well as a 10% boost to character progression and an allowance of 1,500 crowns per month, the in-game currency.

The announcement was first made a couple of months ago, and it was confirmed that instead of the subscription there would be optional purchase, mainly cosmetic items. The PS4 and Xbox One versions are due to release in June.

  1. I would be much happier if it was called “The Elder Scrolls: Offline” – or better still “Skyrim 2” but i think it was a good move to drop the sub.

    • Same here. The quicker they move on to the next proper Elder scrolls game, the better! Though I’ll likely get this on console when it eventually arrives.

  2. I wouldn’t have bothered if it was still a subscription but I’m definitely interested in this now.

  3. It was not imo a good enough MMO to justify a subscription. Games like FF14 and WoW are with their rapid additions of quests, updates etc. FF14 just added Gold Saucer esque mini quests worth checking out.
