To celebrate dropping The Elder Scrolls Online’s subscription fees model and rebranding the game as The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, ZeniMax also released the final chapter of its ongoing “Three Fates” cinematic trailer.
Now the company has merged the latest part with the three parts that have been previously released to create a 23 minute supercut that shows the entire story. It’s longer than most half hour television shows, so settle in for a hefty watch.
The new version will be out March 17 on PC and Mac and June 9 on Xbox One and PS4. It will include all of the content in the 1.6 update, including the new Justice and Champion systems. Anyone who has played before can dive right into the new version, but there will be a one-time purchase of the game for new players.
The game will now charge for optional DLC. It’s also opening a cash shop, called the Crown Store, where players can buy “convenience and customization” items with Crowns, a real money currency. Crowns can buy “unique mounts, special vanity pets, a variety of fun costumes for your character, and convenience items like health potions and soul gems.”
If you preferred the subscription model and don’t want to be nickel and dimed, you can opt for an ESO Plus account, which gives you: in-game benefits including free access to the DLC; a 10 percent boost to XP and gold gain, crafting research, and inspiration; and a monthly allotment of the premium currency.
ESO Plus can be bought in 30, 60 and 90 day increments, with the 30 day plan costing $14.99. If you have an active subscription to ESO now on PC/Mac, you’ll be automatically enrolled in ESO Plus. You can cancel if you’d rather play for free.
