Is there a subscription fee to play ESO?


I played WOW for years but ended up stopping when the subscription fee got a bit annoying. I’m tempted to give Elder Scrolls Online a try, but the subscription fee might get me addicted if there is one. Does ESO have a subscription fee like World of Warcraft does? If so, how much does it cost monthly?

Dan Hastings -

Elder Scrolls Online is free to play and while there are loot boxes and other paid for items, the game is more than playable without them. The paid for items will speed things up so you can either spend an hour in a dungeon to get some good loot or you can just pay for it. This kind of thing is ok for PvE since it doesn’t really give anyone the edge over you.
