Elder Scrolls Online Release Weekend – At 20% Off, Yes or No?

By Viet Do . April 5, 2014 . 11:00am


So if you’ve somehow missed this bit of news, The Elder Scrolls Online was released yesterday on the PC. With typical AAA game launch comes with typical over-the-top cinematic trailer release, and Zenimax delivered a pretty sweet one of Cyrodiil’s Imperial City under siege by the forces of Oblivion. Reviews thus far appears to be positive from critics (I’m honestly surprised) and streamers appears to be enjoying the game.


If you want to jump in on the action, the 20% off deal on ESO is still available for both the Imperial and Standard Edition (sans pre-order bonuses). After coupon, prices will be $64 for Imperial while Standard is $48. Premium prices to be sure considering there’s a $15 monthly subscription fee. While the 20% off hasn’t tempted me in opening my wallet — that’s more to do with the fact that none of my gaming friends have decided to jump into the fray. From the Beta experience of  ESO, its definitely a title that needs to be played as an MMO with friends. If you were expecting the typical single-player Elder Scrolls experience with random real people mulling around – you may be slightly disappointed.


On other noteworthy weekend game deals, ArenaNet unsurprisingly put their Guild Wars 2 MMO on sale for 50% off right on ESO’s release day (GW2 has no subscription fee), a bunch of Assassin’s Creed titles are on sale, and the very excellent The Banner Saga is on sale at 46% off. Things are a bit lighter on the console side, but Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII-3 is 20% off for both the PS3 and 360 version at GameStop while Bravely Default is on sale at 15% off at Best Buy. Not too bad consider both are recent February release.
