With free-to-play massively multiplayer online games being so common now, surviving as a subscription-based MMO is quite difficult. Many previously paid-for online games have made the switch to free-to-play, but Bethesda isn’t prepared to do that with The Elder Scrolls Online, and instead is choosing to reward loyalty.

As a thank you for subscribing, Bethesda is introducing a loyalty program that rewards players with in-game items. All you have to do is subscribe for a set period of time.

The first reward is for anyone who has subscribed for at least 3 months. They don’t have to be consecutive months, though. You could have played the first 2 months of release, taken a break, and returned. As soon as that 3rd month ticks by you are eligible for the reward.

The first reward will be sent out in September, with Bethesda informing those who’ve logged 3 months of subscription time that they have a High Hrothgar Wraith vanity pet waiting to unlock. It’s meant to be a way to demonstrate “your dedication to saving Tamriel wherever you adventure in-game.”

The loyalty program looks set to reward players on a recurring 3 month basis, so the next reward will be unlocked at 6 months of subscription time. Bethesda hasn’t announced what that will be yet, but with the first reward unlocking in September, we can expect to find out in December.

For now the game is only available to play on PC, but console versions are coming early next year. And while this loyalty program might be attractive to existing players, I’d suggest Bethesda may want to review the pricing of digital editions of the game on its own online store. They are far too high right now.
