E3 2016: Elder Scrolls Online accumulates 7M players, announces game-wide auto-scaling
Elder Scrolls Online took to its studio stage pre-E3 late last night to make a major announcement: The MMO will soon feature universal level-scaling for all players across pretty much the entire game. Characters’ levels will be automatically adjusted to the zone in which they adventure, and there will be no more PvE alliance restrictions. This initiative is being called “One Tamriel,” and there is a breakdown list on the site of what this will mean for the game.
“Starting this fall, all content barriers will be removed and you’ll be able to experience everything Tamriel has to offer, no matter what level you are, making it the perfect time to begin your journey (or maybe start fresh with a totally new character),” Bethesda said. “Even if you’re a complete beginner, you can quest with your veteran friends and the world will adjust.”
The studio also boasted about racking up an impressive seven million player accounts since its 2014 launch, excluding beta and trial accounts: “Since we commercially launched at the end of March 2014, we have had seven million people acquire the game, create accounts and play.”
Your ticket to the Elder Scrolls Online hype train is following the break.
