Zenimax and Bethesda’s new Elder Scrolls MMO is available to all and sundry today, and to celebrate that fact the company’s released an infographic telling you all sorts of things about the game you would otherwise not even care remotely care about. Did you know, for example, that you’d have to slay 119,050 mudcrabs to reach level 50? No? Well you do now!
The Elder Scrolls online is one of those rare, subscription-based MMO’s that asks you to spend over R400 for 60 days worth of access – and that’s after you’ve paid the price of a retail title for the privilege of the game itself. For some though, it’s worth it.
Bethesda’s Pete Hines certainly thinks the subscription is valid. Speaking to Games.on, Hines defended the game’s seemingly antiquated model.
“If we’re providing the kind of content people want to see where they’re like ‘This is awesome, I’m having a blast, this new stuff is totally worth it and I’m having fun’, then the subscription totally works,” he said. “If we’re putting out stuff that doesn’t make a case for it then we have a problem on our hands and we have failed to meet that value proposition.”
Are you playing The Elder Scrolls Online? From a South African standpoint, I hope you picked it up on disc, because apparently the client download is very, very slow going at the moment.
