How Much? One Thing About Elder Scrolls Online Will Stun You
The Elder Scrolls Online is exciting all sorts of gaming nerve endings in the lead-up to its release. It's apparently a deep, deep experience. But so will your pockets have to be.

The digital Standard Edition (from Bethesda) is priced at $59.99 (54.99 / 49.99) while the digital Imperial Edition is priced at $79.99 (79.99 / 69.99). The physical Standard Edition for PC/Mac will cost $59.99 (54.99 / 49.99) and the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are priced at $59.99 (69.99 / 59.99). The physical Imperial Edition will retail for $99.99 (99.99 / 89.99) on all platforms. But then... a subscription fee beast must be defeated! Read on.

Says Bethesda, "Once players purchase the game, they will have unlimited access for the first 30 days and can continue beyond that with a subscription of $14.99/30 days (12.99 / 8.99).

"The first 30 days begin at or after the official launch of the game when players select their preferred subscription plan. Subscription fees will only be charged after the first 30 days."

Stunning, no? In an age of F2P, stunning. The trailer does look good though... so, quality over freebie? Let's hope so.

Now watch the lovely video...

I wasn't gonna get it anyway but screw those prices, 50 notes? for something you have to keep paying 9 every month to keep playing? I'll never understand how people can do that.

We play these games because they're captivating, and we don't live on a $30 a month allowance usually. We make our money, we enjoy the game, so we chose to spend our money on it so we may spend time playing it. It's only .50 a day to play, and that's definitely much better than any arcade game being they're all 50 cents to play for like 5 minutes. Plus with MMO's they keep it auto saved. And within that we have communities amongst ourselves on the game, such as guilds where we chat amongst each other about various topics, it's quite simple if your a hardcore gamer, I myself pay almost $40 monthly to play games. It's good to support the developers of games you enjoy, it tells them they have done a great job. Plus they have servers to keep running, it's not like they can keep their game online for free. Their servers require monthly fee's and quite immense ones at that due to the data usage and traffic brought onto it. I think that's why half of us gamers don't mind spending a few dollars to join in on the fun.
