The Elder Scrolls Online preps for tomorrow’s Tamriel Unlimited launch for PC.
As of 12:30 PM EST, The Elder Scrolls Online North American megaserver was offline as ZeniMax Online Studios (ZOS) prepares for tomorrow’s PC launch of Tamriel Unlimited. When attempting to login, players were greeted with the megaserver “unavailable” system announcement, as well as new graphic art and the updated Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited logo.
Tamriel Unlimited Launch
Tomorrow’s Tamriel Unlimited launch for PC marks the beginning of the MMORPG’s “buy-to-play” business model. Players must buy a copy of the game to play, however a game subscription will no longer be required (note: current players do not have to repurchase the game).
Although not required, players who choose to maintain a $14.99 a month subscription will have their accounts upgraded to an ESO Plus premium membership. Membership privileges include access to all future DLC releases, an allotment of in-game currency to spend in the new Crown Store cash shop, and a 10% bonus to XP, gold gain, crafting research, and inspiration.
Tamriel Unlimited Video
To help promote the Tamriel Unlimited launch, ZOS released a new marketing video late last week. The video highlights the upcoming changes to the game, focusing primarily on Update 1.6 and the B2B business model. You can check out the video below.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited launches on March 17, 2015 for PC, and on June 9, 2015 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
