PSA: Grab The Elder Scrolls Online for $12 on Green Man Gaming [Updated]

See, Reddit is good for something: It’s going to save you 75% on a copy of The Elder Scrolls Online today.

In conjunction with its summer sale event, online retailer Green Man Gaming has marked the digital PC and Mac versions of the game down to $15 US (or $12 with a coupon; see our update below), which is a pretty sweet deal for a game that is effectively buy-to-play now. The Imperial Edition is also on sale, though the discount isn’t as awesome. Make sure you’re getting the right one!

Hurry scurry, though, because the last time GMG put these puppies on sale, they went faster than we could write a post about them.

Update: Massively OP reader FVerret points out that you can use the ENCORE-ENCORE-ENCORE voucher code in your cart and score the game for $12. Just checked myself and it works great.

Update 07/24/2015 8:59 AM EDT: Tipster Nordavind has pointed us to a May article in which The Witcher 3 dev CD Projekt warn gamers not to purchase the game from Green Man Gaming as it believes GMG is not an authorized distributor, casting doubt on the legitimacy of all keys sold on the website. However, we hasten to point out that GMG is an established, reputable online vendor, not some random pop-up. Furthermore, GMG issued a statement of its own insisting that the keys were brokered through an approved source and providing a glimpse into its soured negotiations with CD Projekt. CD Projekt owns Good Old Games, a rival game distro service, and has more than one dog in this fight. Commentators at the time speculated that CD Projekt tried to deny keys to GMG to starve a rival but that GMG managed to broker keys through a third-party CDPR believed would not do so, hence the bitterness.

As with all internet purchases, buyer beware. Several of us went ahead and bought, for what it’s worth.

Nordavind Thanks, Norda, we’ve included that in the post. GMG denied the accusation (this was back in May) and noted that The Witcher 3 studio owns Good Old Games, so it wasn’t just some indie studio making a public service announcement; it was a direct competitor trying to sully its rival’s rep and being mad that they tried to deny said rival keys but the rival managed to buy keys anyway from a third party CDPR/GOG thought it could trust not to do that. Drama, popcorn, etc.

I hope you get keys that are not acquired in, uhm, “creative” ways.

Ok Ive been watching this game for a while but hesitating at the price. 
But for $12 you cant lose! Thanks for the awesome tip! even if its a bad game im sure ill get my money worth. 

The only downside is I will not be able to play the game for several days. 
The game is 80GB! after an hour ive only downloaded 1% :(
