About the game: The Elder Scrolls Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing (MMORPG) video game developed by ZeniMax Online Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It was originally released for Microsoft Windows and OS X on April 4, 2014. It is a part of The Elder Scrolls series, of which it is the first multiplayer installment.
As with other games in The Elder Scrolls franchise, the game is set in the continent of Tamriel and features a storyline indirectly connected with the other games. The Elder Scrolls Online had been in development for seven years before its release in 2014. It initially received mixed reviews, but these improved significantly with the re-release and rebranding as The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, with the majority of reviews praising the changes.
Similar to other MMORPGs, The Elder Scrolls Online originally used a per-month subscription model, but abolished that beginning in March 2015. The game was then renamed as The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. Console versions for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were released in June 2015.
