QuakeCon 2014 kicked off today in Dallas, Texas, and one of the bigger announcements (short of all the DOOM news) we'll likely hear from the gathering this year is The Elder Scrolls Online's unexpected arrival on Steam. A potentially great move by publisher ZeniMax, since they're essentially bringing the MMO to the attention of Steam's massive community.
The Elder Scrolls Online celebrates the three-month milestone this month, having been out for PC since April. Based on Bethesda's award-winning Elder Scrolls RPG series, the MMO essentially borrowed the universe to create a massive, multiplayer environment for Elder Scrolls fans and newbies alike.
While TESO has certainly earned its share of criticism, it maintains a subscription fee. Steam will undoubtedly provide some much-needed exposure at this point, and potentially give the MMO a second wind. Steam users can currently grab either the standard edition or pricier Imperial Edition at discounted prices.
QuakeCon will continue into the weekend, so stay tuned for more developments.
