‘The Elder Scrolls’ Online PC, Mac Free-Play To End On Nov. 21; Game Patch 1.2 For Xbox, PS4 Coming Soon!By Addie Tee, UniversityHerald Reporter
Bethesda has confirmed that "Elder Scrolls Online's" free-play weekend for Windows PC and Mac will end on Nov. 21.
The free-play is available for anyone since the download for PS4 is free, although one needs to have a storage of approximately 73 GB as the game is hefty. Once the game is downloaded, players have to create an ESO account to start playing. Players can have access in all features of the game except in DLC areas.
The progress and purchases of the players in the game will be saved and retained in case the players decided to buy the game afterwards.
Meanwhile, free-play weekend for Xbox One is also underway, but dates will be revealed soon.
Aside from the free-play, purchasers will have a discount in Crown Packs and all versions of "The Elder Scrolls Online" including the four DLC extensions of Imperial City, Orsinium, Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood until Nov. 28.
The game will be available in PlayStation 4 until Nov. 20, 2016 at 11: 59 p.m. while PC and Mac players will have access in the game until 1 p.m. on Nov. 21.
In another news, "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition" patch 1.2 will soon be released for Xbox and PS4 consoles. It can be remembered that patch 1.1 allegedly failed to address the issues, so it is expected that the next update will be much responsive.
Game Spot, however, reported that the focus of the upcoming patch will be on the issues about game crashes. Based on the information officially released by the game developer, patch 1.2 fixed issues on using alt-tab while playing the game; water flow not rendering properly; crash related to changing from werewolf to humans; reloading after changing Load Order of mods; and over- all enhancement of browsing mods.
Since the upcoming patch may not cover all problems related to patches, Bethesda hinted that another patch is underway.
