The Elder Scrolls Online launches loyalty program for subscribers

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

The Elder Scrolls Online is kicking off a loyalty program for subscribers in September, offering in-game items to those who have paid subscription time of three months.

Emails will go out to eligible paid subscribers next month, but Bethesda says the first reward will be a vanity pet - a High Hrothgrar wraith (pictured) — "that will let you show your dedication to saving Tamriel wherever you adventure in-game."

Loyalty rewards will be added as subscriber tenure grows; the next one is planned for six months of subscriber time. The Elder Scrolls Online launched for PC and Mac four months ago. The game's console release has been delayed to at least the end of this year and no specific release date has been announced yet.

The subscription time necessary to earn loyalty rewards is cumulative, not consecutive; thus someone who played for two months and then ended a subscription can qualify with another month of paid time later. The paid subscription time does not include that which was included with the purchase of the game at its launch in April, or any complimentary time redeemed since.
