    The Elder Scrolls Online is trying to adapt to the changing MMO market by switching payment models. From now on, the game will not require a monthly subscription, so everyone who owns it will be able to play at all times.

    However, The Elder Scrolls Online is not going free to play all the way. You'll still need to pay for the base game, but it's a one-time purchase similar to Guild Wars 2. An optional subscription method called ESO Plus is also available, granting users access to all future DLC expansions, a monthly payout in the game's premium currency and a 10% XP boost.

    Zenimax has released a trailer showcasing the update, so check it out below.

    This is Tamriel Unlimited (PEGI)

    Bought it a long time ago but couldn't justify a sub, might give it another shot.

    Took all day and some tetris work. Folder is sitting at 41.7gb installed but it wont even let you try to install unless you have at least 80gb free... it's kinda nuts.

    I have like 170+ free but still, I think I'm going to pass on ESO. I will rather spend those 170gb on something else.

    40gb is a lot, it's all them voice overs. I'm gonna play it a bit but might end up removing it because it's just soooo much space.

    That's not very nice. While we are on the topic, if you don't anything of value to add to a topic (especially an old one) then don't bother posting.
