Elder Scrolls Online patches in the cash shop

    
87

The Elder Scrolls Online’s buy-to-play transition is finally here — and in fact started up a day earlier than expected. Along with the business model shift, the team has instituted a new patch to fix up some annoying issues, opened up the game’s new cash shop. Players also have the option to stay subscribed as a premium member under the ESO Plus program.

Patch 2.0.1 brings the Crown Store to players, ESO’s cash shop that contains mounts, pets, costumes, consumables, and various bundles. The team posted a showcase on the website with examples of the store’s offerings. Previous subscribers will log in to find that they have a sizable stash of crowns to spend on these goodies.

Of course, the most important change to the game is that aquatic fauna preparation is no longer dissonant: “Cleaning a fish now sounds less obnoxious.”

decompiler AvatarOP Golden_Girl God i hope not, as much as i love subbing and playing SWTOR i thoroughly dislike their f2p system.  But to their defense they werent prepared to go f2p, everything was designed early on as a long term subscription game.

Chuki792 I didnt doubt there will be lockboxes, thats one cash shop staple that makes too much money for so little development work.  But as much as I hate it, I can see why a lot of f2p mmos do it, its simply the only other way to make decent money without the regular influx of subscription money.

Loyheta That was an error.  Crafted potions of your current level bracket are meant to outperform the ones from the Crown store.  They’re supposed to be in the process of fixing that now.

AvatarOP nameistake12 RagnarTheDrunk What game’s lore do you like, Avatar?  What’s so boring about Elder Scrolls lore to you?

dirtyklingon This is going to require trying for yourself – I love the way combat feels right now, others hate it.  If you bought it previously there’s no reason not to try it again (except maybe lack of patience… or hard drive space).  ;)

AvatarOP Golden_Girl Don’t expect SWTOR.  Every little thing you do in SWTOR (even hiding your helm, for the love of Alkosh) costs cartel coins.  This will not happen here.

Sorely disappointed with the cash shop, I know it’s still early but they’ve had a year to decide what to put in it so a few more options would be nice, and the costume selection is very poor. One thing seems certain, there will be lock-boxes!

ManastuUtakata AvatarOP their revenues have been going steadily upward year to year, unlike for instance Blizzard. Although Blizzard looks to turn this around when they finish their current new F2P projects.
