Elder Scrolls Online is due to be released for PC in April, and console versions will follow soon after. There has been a lot of negativity regarding game’s online subscription fee and players started asking why it cannot be free to play. Vice president of PR for Bethesda, addressed issues answering this exact question.
"We feel pretty strongly about the support we're going to have for the game and what you're going to get for those dollars," said vice president of PR Pete Hines, adding that "We're also very confident in our ability to support it with content."
"We're also very confident in our ability to support it with content. And not content of the magnitude of, it's a new month, here's a new sword or here's a funny hat--but content that is real and significant and it feels like regular and consistent DLC releases."
Although Bethesda is aware that this might limit the number of potential players for The Elder Scrolls Online, Hines explains why it would be wrong to go with free-to-play model.
"That just seems like a lesser game, and we're not going to make a lesser game that might be more palatable," he continued. "We want to do the version that we think is the best game and the coolest experience. And that means putting a lot of people and a lot of content creators towards having stuff that comes our regularly; every four weeks, five weeks, six weeks. Big new stuff that you want to do."
The Elder Scrolls Online is one of the most anticipated MMORPG’s of 2014. Players have high expectations from TESO and from what we’ve seen the PvP mode looks awesome.
