The Elder Scrolls Online Rolls Out Worldwide Level-Scaling This Spring

Exploring Tamriel in The Elder Scrolls Online with friends is getting a lot easier this spring, when One Tamriel introduces level-scaling to the entire game world.

The developers of the free-to-play Elder Scrolls MMO have been talking about rolling out level-scaling to the world since late last year. At tonight's Bethesda E3 2016 event, game director Matt Firor made it official. Once One Tamriel rolls out, players will be able to travel the entire world without restriction (once they make it out of the tutorial). Player level will scale to the area they are in, much like it currently does in DLC areas.

For those of you who've only played the single-player Elder Scrolls games, where you can wander wherever you want and explore to your heart's content, this move basically makes the online game more like that. Neat!

    Might get back into ESO, was thinking about starting WoW having never played it before, I think Free to Play will suit me though because I don't get to play often enough.

    * BUY-to-play, not FREE-to-play. After initial purchase you get access to the base game. There is additional DLC which can be accessed either by purchasing each one outright, or subbing month-to-month for access to everything whilst your sub is active.

    good on them for making the leap.... its epic news for MMOs

    Glad that this is finally happening, one of the things I love about elder scrolls games is just wandering around and looking at all the pretty scenery, and the amazing detail they slip into the environments and ruins. This will make ESO better suited to my walking holiday take on elder scrolls games :)
