3 Million Players Signed Up For The Elder Scrolls Online Beta
3 million players have signed up to play The Elder Scrolls Online. Presumably, that number includes a good chunk of players who’ve ever played (and enjoyed) an Elder Scrolls title, as well as fans of the MMORPG genre.
Zenimax Online Studios’ Matt Firor revealed this little detail in an interview with PCGamesN. The publication compared the interest in the game’s beta with Guild Wars 2′s sales, with the former sum dwarfing the latter by a cool million.
As for how many players were already testing the title, Firor declined to provide an exact number, but dropped a ballpark figure within the “tens of thousands.”
“You don’t want to let too many people in early, because the game is, frankly, not too good in early beta and you don’t want to expose many people to that, but we’re well into the tens of thousands.”
Swimming against the tide, The Elder Scrolls Online is set to use a subscription model and will be out in 2014 for the PC, Mac, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
