The Crown Store is a new addition to the MMO, which goes sub-free on March 17. For real money, players can purchase cosmetic items, XP boosts, mounts, vanity pets, soul gems, potions for health, magicka and stamina.

Potions will be weaker than those crafted in-game, so players will be able to choose whether they wish to buy one in an emergency with the virtual currency, or just wait until they can acquire one from a vendor or through trade.

All are convenience or vanity items and will not have a direct effect on gameplay nor provide an unfair advantage, which is similar to many online stores in MMOs.

More loyalty rewards will be handed out when Tamriel Unlimited launches next month. Those who have been playing for nine-months come March 17 will be handed the Mask of Cheerful Slaughter, a costume modeled after the Daedric Prince Sheogorath.

Another reward for nine-monthers is the rather awesome Striped Senche, which is a giant cat mount.

To acquire this mount, players will need to have been an ESO subscriber at the time of transition to Tamriel Unlimited and have paid for 300 total days of non-consecutive subscription time prior to March 16.

Once the game goes sub-free, the Loyalty Program will be retired.

“Our goal in designing setting the criteria for eligibility was to ensure that we reward players who have been with us from the start, but to allow for the occasional lapse in subscription, as well,” said game designer Matt Firor.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of The Elder Scrolls Online will release on June 9, but in order to play, you will need to have a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live membership.
