22. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Also Features Microtransactions Aug 23, 2013, 14:41 Fion
A monthly fee and microtransactions for what is essentially a non-MMOG? For those that don't know it works largely like Neverwinter. There's a hub area where people hang out, craft, go to merchants, join PvP, etc but when you want to do some of the content you go to an instanced area designed for solo or small teams. Only Neverwinter had the wherewithal to go F2P as they knew a P2P/Microtransaction system would have failed outright.

Maybe Zenimax things the name alone will carry their 'almost' MMOG. But they clearly haven't learned from Bioware's mistakes.


Edit: I agree we need another Fallout before an Elder Scrolls. But frankly I wasn't very happy with Fallout 3. I felt Bethesda had largely dropped the ball on that one. It was a solid game but I felt more like I was playing Elder Scrolls: Wasteland and less like I was playing Fallout. IMHO Fallout: New Vegas was significantly better, so I'd rather see Fallout 4 from that team.
