Elder Scrolls Online Removed Six-Month Subs

Elder Scrolls Online is the MMORPG version of the hit RPG series. Elder Scrolls Online is subscription based, but now ZeniMax has removed one of the subscription options that gamers had.

On the Elder Scrolls Online forum, a player noticed that the 180 day subscription was no longer available. The topic was brought up by ZeniMax on the game’s French forum, which was translated by a user on the English forum: “We have noticed that players preferred subscriptions of 30 and 90 days, the Elder Scrolls Online team therefore took the decision to delete the 180 days subscription. The 30 and 90 days subscription are still available.” This has, of course, caused fans to begin speculation on what the removal of the 180 day subscription can mean. Some do not believe that the 180 day subscription was removed just because it was not popular. Many believe that Elder Scrolls Online will switch over a free-to-play model in the coming months. We probably will not know for a few more months.

Elder Scrolls Online released in April of this year. The game was originally supposed to release on consoles in June of this year, but was delayed in May. Elder Scrolls Online is a part of the Elder Scrolls series, and has most of continent of Tamriel available to explore. More areas will become available in later expansions. Players are able to create a character out of a number of races, including the Nords, Orcs, Elves, and Khajiit. Players are able to choose from four different classes: Dragonknight, Templar, Sorcerer, and Nightblade. Like other Elder Scrolls titles, gameplay is nonlinear, allowing players to go on the path that they choose. While players cannot play single-player offline, Elder Scrolls Online does have plenty of content designed for those who want to play solo.

Elder Scrolls Online is available on PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are on the way.
