After a long analysis, Bethesda decided that Elder Scrolls Online will be a subscription-based game. The monthly fee of ESO will be $14.99/€12.99/£8.99 after the first free month.
“We feel that putting pay gates between the player and content at any point in game ruins that feeling of freedom, and just having one small monthly fee for 100 percent access to the game fits the IP and the game much better than a system where you have to pay for features and access as you play,” Firor said.
Bethesda also promised that The Elder Scrolls Online will see a high-frequency of post-release updates.
