Elder Scrolls Online opting for subscription model over F2P

4.4
The Elder Scrolls Online will cost adventurous non-Dovahkiin $14.99/€12.99/£8.99 per month once it launches next year, ZeniMax Online general manager Matt Firor has told GameStar.

"Going with any other model meant that we would have to make sacrifices and changes we weren't willing to make," Firor said. "We'll talk about further discounts, etc. later, but for now, we are very happy to finally announce our model. It's very simple - you pay once per month after the first 30 days and the entire game is available to you."

Firor also said that folks can "expect some discounts if you buy multiple months at a time," and that gametime cards will also be available as a payment option. We're not super into gametime cards ourselves, but only because we had to go to a 7/11 to buy them, and invariably we'd end up buying Dr Pepper Slurpees and sacks of powdered donuts instead, and then our guild would kick us out.

Bros No way i'm going to be paying to go online
I would pay to go online but there is no way that I would pay that much for a single month. I would do it if it was like Minecraft and it was a one time fee but never per month.

Now we need to know if they'll have microtransactions as well. It sounds like a very fortunate "no," but we'll have to see.
