On April 4th 2014, Bethesda Softworks published a new take on the Elder Scrolls franchise with The Elder Scrolls online, a Massively multiplayer online role-playing (MMORPG) At first the game received mixed reviews, along with a pay per-month subscription. The game didn’t seem to take to well among fan’s however and so the pay per month concept was abolished in March 2015. With a re-brand of the game, to The Elder Scrolls Online, Tamrial unlimited and the game being brought to console in June 2015 the game saw its player base flourish.
Elder Scrolls Online, like all other instalments is based on the continent of Tamrial and its story line is indirectly connected to the other instalments of the games with the same name. With plenty of content, events, quests free-roam, the game offers plenty for everyone. It has a good amount of character customisation, with the player being able to chose from the 10 races we’ve grown to love over the years.
The game has also seen a number of updates in its time, The Imperial City being the first in August 31st 2015 and then to console September 15th. Following this was Orsinium November 2015, Thieves Guild March 2016, Dark Brotherhood May 2016 for PC then June 2016 for console, Shadow of the hist, One Tamriel in October 2016 with the announcement of player homes coming this year.
