One of the issues that many people are concerned about are the subscription fees. With many MMOs going to the free-to-play route rather than pay-to-play, there are players out there who firmly believe that The Elder Scrolls Online should have gone free-to-play. Well, from what you will experience and play in this game, Zenimax deserves that monthly subscription as the game is big and with so many places in Tamriel that are left to be discovered, it’s all up to Zenimax on how they will push content to make the game worth coming back to every month. If they stick to their word and keep releasing DLC content every month or so, then $15 a month is worth it.
After spending over fifty hours of playing through The Elder Scrolls Online, I must say that fans of the critically acclaimed series should definitely consider picking up the game. What The Elder Scrolls Online offers is a true single-player experience that lives up to the series expectation, with an opportunity to group with friends to do instances, world bosses, and much more. It may not have the best PvP system at the moment, but it still has the potential to grow and get better through future patches. Those who are looking for a game to replace their World of Warcraft addiction will certainly not find that here as The Elder Scrolls Online is a MMO that gives players of the genre a refreshing and unique experience. Not to mention that it will definitely give you a true Elder Scrolls experience.
