If you wanted to play an Elder Scrolls-branded MMO that doesn’t actually play much like an Elder Scrolls game, but wanted it on Steam, rejoice! The Elder Scrolls Online is now on Steam.
In what is presumably an attempt to entice Steam users to pick it up (and, possibly, to entice previous players to pick it up again), it’s currently 50% off on the digital distribution service. Unfortunately, that percentage is a bit misleading, because The Elder Scrolls Online is normally priced at £50. So it’s £25. Which is a little cheaper than the launch price of most other games, and they don’t come with a monthly subscription fee.
Nonetheless, if this is a thing that you want on Steam, it’s now on Steam. Also available is the Imperial Edition (discounted to £41.99), an upgrade to the Imperial Edition if you buy the stand-alone game and decide you really want the extra stuff (£20), and a Palomino Horse. For a tenner.
The Elder Scrolls Online is currently enjoying a universal “thumbs down” user rating on Steam, but frankly, I imagine you already know whether it’s your sort of thing or not.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
