AU New Releases: The Elder Scrolls Online launches for PC Preview

This week, Bethesda makes its MMORPG debut with the release of The Elder Scrolls Online.

The title is part of The Elder Scrolls franchise, set in Tamriel and featuring a new storyline that will relate indirectly to previous games.

The Elder Scrolls Online will launch simultaneously world-wide, with different access times available to players. It will officially launch at 10am Australian Eastern Standard time on Thursday, April 4.

The game will be released for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles in June, and only players on the same platform will be able to play together. Bethesda recently defended the game’s $ 15/month subscription fee, saying that the game’s “significant” expansion content justifies its cost.
