Elder Scrolls Blades Bethesda Microtransactions

After a long wait, Elder Scrolls Blades finally went live for players who had signed up for the early access of the game on Android and iOS devices.

In addition to that, the gear needs to be upgraded for several missions. Upgrading the gear takes a long time.. unless you pay for it. Elder Scrolls Blade is an otherwise good game which falls flat on its face due to frequent microtransactions.

Elder Scrolls Blades: Bethesda Gone Greedy?

While microtransactions are quite bothersome, the game has basically become a pay-to-win situation. This means that users who really want to succeed in this game would have to shell out a large amount of money.

Analysts point out that a large number of users would begin playing Elder Scrolls Blades, pay the odd $20-$30 and then exit it eventually!
