Lord of the Rings vs. Elder Scrolls Online demand

When you take a very popular franchise such as Lord of the Rings and come up with a game centered on an online gaming community, it doesn’t mean there will be guaranteed success. We say this because LOTR Online has not been the success that fans had hoped, and as such those behind Elder Scrolls Online need to be cautious and cannot became over confidant.

We thought we would bring this subject matter up now because things are not looking very good for Lord of the Rings Online, as the team behind the game has said they are not working on adding more content, although older parts of the game could get an overhaul later this year.

According to Turbine community manager there are several technical reasons why new Lord of the Rings content is not going to be added, but one of the main ones has to be the number of people playing the game.

We know that demand from the community is strong and that they would love to see new LOTR Online features and updates, but seeing as though the user base is far less than expected it is having a serious effect on the games future.

It is for this very reason why fans of the Elder Scrolls should not be too complacent and if they want the Online version to succeed, then they have to be prepared to sign up to the monthly subscription.

Do you believe that the Elder Scrolls Online, which will be released in April will be able to achieve a larger user base than Lord of the Rings Online, and if so why would that be?

Not that I think this article is wrong, but LOTRO only announced they weere not releasing any content in 2014. They still had plans for an expansion in 2015. Though I do think their player base is waning. It is an old game, and the LOTR hype is dying down.

Long time Fan of the Elder Scrolls Series. Skyrim is the single Handed best gaming Experience of my life. As much as i would like to see the Elder Scrolls Online Succeed And i truly do want it too, as i will be buying the game and paying a Monthly Subscription. I just dont see it being a Hit. People are already complaining about it, Console Gamers are confused as to why when they already pay a monthly Subscription to Sony and Miscrosoft they are being forced to pay Additional Charges.
