ZeniMax are keen to remind you that The Elder Scrolls Online [official site] is still an actual, real MMO that you can play if you’d like. They’re doing so by releasing a series of videos showcasing the game’s key features, the first of which can be seen below. It details the level of freedom and choice found in the game, by having the guy who did all the old VHS Disney trailers talk at you for three minutes about classes and factions.
If you find this video enticing, you may be interested to know that you’ll no longer need a subscription to play The Elder Scrolls Online. Just a one-off purchase for the game is all that’s required. Having said that, there is an optional subscription service which will give you exclusive in-game bonuses and access to all future DLC at no additional cost.
Whether this sea change results in a healthy, populous online Elder Scrolls experience remains to be seen. Personally I can’t help but feel like it’s more of a death knell than a call to arms.
