!The Elder Scrolls Online for monthly charge!

Payment model for the upcoming massive online role-playing game The Elder Scrolls Online has now been announced, and it turns out that it is about to pay a monthly subscription fee. Price per month will be about $ 15. It says ZeniMax 'Matt Firor to Gamestar.

The Call - Elder Scrolls Online Song

Many would probably first bought the game and had it forever without having to pay an additional amount each month, but Firor think they have a good reason to do what they intend to. He said that there had to have been sacrificed much for another payment model should have been used. Micro transactions should also have been out of the question, which Firor says is because of The Elder Scrolls' open and free gameplay.

However, it shouldbe possible to getdiscountsif youbuyseveral monthsat a time,and supportforso-calledGame TimeCardis implemented.

Glad they are going with a P2P model and not a F2P model.

But a few things turn me off about it.

There are no classes.

It's coming out on consoles.

And well..it will take development time and resources away from another true Elder Scrolls game.

TYVM for the Update :D

Not that I can think of right now, you must still pay the monthly fee for World of Warcraft and Star Wars Old Republic online if you play there and they have very many plays there.

SWTOR is free to play now and WoW already did some steps into the region of becoming F2P

They just killed it.

Why can't you just buy the game and be done with it.
Look at WoW and SWTOR, they took massive hits with the new F2P games arriving on the field. I'm not condoning F2P but why can't they just give us a buyable retail version with F2P elements, e.g. faster xp earnings if you buy premium and so on.
Dumbest move possible Bethesda, I love your other games but this is simply diabolical.

I ain't getting this, I will never buy into a subscription based game.

(rant out)

Cheers on the update as always Kark-Jocke.

I think F2P = Pay to win in most cases.

WoW took a hit not due to it's model, But to make it "Easier" for the casuals and changing the game so much it Alienated it's customer Base.

SWTOR did badly after release because of...Nothing to do when you hit level cap, Poor PvP and PvE at end Game..and well..EA being EA and EAing it as this guy Moddb.com would say.

that being said I for one would rather do P2P then F2P AKA Pay to win. Although LoL does a good job at F2P due to most things that are pay are just Skins and such.

I'm not getting this game though Not because it is F2P or P2P, but because an online elder scrolls game, with no classes, and poor concept of game play, mechanics and progression does not appeal to me. Imo elder Scrolls should be an Immersive single player game..make it an MMORPG it kills what made Elder scrolls great.

Just my Opinion :3

P.S. Kark-Jocke I read your page everyday :3

He knows a lot about Games and Anime-Series, weather time I wonder about a game or a really good anime series, I ask him first. I have asked so many others for help, but they give me very much wrong information.... :(

I'm all for a Bethesda game (Fallout, Elder Scrolls) being open for multiplayer, but more on the co-op sort of level. The games should always remain singleplayer focused.

On a side note: Where have all those beautiful LAN games of old gone?
*sniff* *sniff* I miss them with a passion.

Yes, Jocke, you have probably the best page on ModDB for spreading the news about upcoming games.

Yeah he does, and I'm not against Co-Op in a Bethesda game if it is done right.

As Far as Game News from Kark-Jocke I actually hear it from him first most of the time.

As far as Anime is concerned I well..Have my own connections for that but that's a whole other topic!
