The Elder Scrolls Online Will Consume Your PS4 in June

Posted by Sammy Barker

Take the trip to Tamriel

We sincerely hope that you haven’t got any plans for the summer, because Bethesda has just confirmed that The Elder Scrolls Online is set to embark on an epic adventure on the PlayStation 4 in June. The hotly anticipated MMO is due out a little earlier on the PC, which should give the publisher time to squash the title’s inevitable infestation of bugs.

To celebrate the announcement, the company has deployed a brand new trailer designed to highlight the title’s PvP system, which will allow hundreds of unique players to fight against each other at the same time. We’re pleased to see that even with 8GB GDDR5 RAM to work with, the frame rate’s still stuck in the single digits. Well, it wouldn’t be an Elder Scrolls game if the image was buttery smooth, would it?

My son will be happy he's been waiting for this since it was announced. Myself I already have the spot for an MMO taken and that goes to WoW.

I think I'm going to play this. I'm not overly keen on the subscription fee — would have preferred free-to-play — but the idea of multiplayer Skyrim tempts me greatly.

Skyrim blew me away!! It really did change the way I view games. This looks awesome too. I take on board the subscription fee point that Sammy makes but if it's a good enough game then I'll happily pay a nominal fee to play online. You only have to pay while you are playing, there won't be any minimum term agreement I'm pretty sure of that.

My wife and I LOVE skyrim (and oblivion was the reason I bought a ps3) but I don't think I can handle the monthly fee. Maybe i'll try it one month...wait. What am I saying? I'll never put it down. Haha. I should just pass.

The game being MMO was off putting to me already...I game for alone time not to be sociable. I get plenty of socialising in the real world and at work....I don't need to be mugged by some chavvy player driven Orc in a game I can get that experience by walking to my local Asda. The subscription fee totally killed off any interest I had remaining. I'd rather replay skyrim.

I'd probably even be okay with throwing down $100 on the game. Maybe a little more. But $60 + $15? per month is just outlandish (unless you're used to paying sub fees).

@ztpayne7 The main problem I have with subscription fees is the fact that you feel forced to play. What if I'm having a busy month and am only able to play for six hours all month? I've paid for it, but I'm not getting the full benefit of my payment. However, without paying it, that means that I can't enjoy the game for the six hours that I get the chance, too.

There has to be a better way of handling this, I'm just not sure what it is.

I think a better solution to the dilemma of subscription games is that;
1. You get the whole month of unlimited hours of play.
2. If you don't reach a certain amount of hours per month, you get an extension until you reach the predetermined amount of time or 2 months has passed.
That way the people who don't have tons of time to dedicate wont feel cheated, and the ones who do will get their money's worth straight up.

Sadly I am going to pass on this game because THEY MADE MY LIZARDS SO FREAKING UGLY. T T
The concept art looks 100x better then the in-game models...

@get2sammyb: Alot of people think like you do which isn't a bad thing but I love how they think of that way only towards an MMO. You have to look at it like the you do a cable tv bill or Netflix sub. A person my watch it a few hours a month or a few hours a day but it's there for your enjoyment when you want it.

But I get what you are saying that is a very valid reason. I know I use to feel that way that I was forced to play it but now I pay knowing that I can enjoy it whenever I want, kinda like a premium cable tv channel.

@Tasuki I feel like the differences between Netflix and an mmo are a) variety of content (lots of different movies) and b) you don't have to pay $60 for a netflix app.

Very rarely. I used to buy rock band dlc sometimes, but other than that, it's rare. I have to be very careful with my money, so I don't buy a lot of extras and I usually don't buy new at $60. (games like skyrim are an exception). But to be honest, even though the elder scrolls is one of my favorite series, I've never even bought any of those expansions.

Have to say was unimpressed with it. Wildstar looks more and more interesting though.
