People are counting how many months before this game goes free to play...
maraming nadismaya based sa comments sa IGN.  ;D

I'm sure hardcore fans will still pay to play and enjoy this game.



ZeniMax Online Studios' upcoming MMO The Elder Scrolls Online will cost $15 monthly for subscribers, Bethesda has confirmed to IGN.

"Charging a flat monthly (or subscription) fee means that we will offer players the game we set out to make, and the one that fans set out to play," Matt Firor, general manager of ZeniMax Online, told Gamestar. "Going with any other model meant that we would have to make sacrifices and changes that we didn't want to make."

ZeniMax is offering players a free month after purchasing The Elder Scrolls Online, but any following time in the game will incur the fee.

Firor said that the subscription fee fits the sense of an open world that other pay models can't, and that a fee will let players "go where they want, be who they want and do what they want."

The thought process is, "We feel that putting pay gates between the player and the content at any point in-game ruins that feeling of freedom."

The Elder Scrolls Online is coming to PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One spring 2014, but a specific release date hasn't been announced.

i think mas magandang platform parin ang Pay2Play for these kind of games with rich content imo

Based on the comments at IGN, they definitely lost some gamers who were very eager to play this game.

mas gusto ko ang pay to play, kesa ang pay to win. (gaya ng diablo)  ::)
