One of the largest takeaways during this past weekend’s Gamescom coverage was more information regarding ZeniMax Online’s decision to make The Elder Scrolls Online a subscription-only game. We found out that Matt Firor, Game Director, believes very strongly that TESO will provide plenty of quality content to make a monthly subscription worthwhile. In an interview with Eurogamer, he said the following regarding what type of content updates will we see:
“When I talk about new content, I mean, we’re launching with the Mages Guild and the Fighters Guild questlines, but we’re going to launch the Thieves Guild and the Dark Brotherhood at some point as part of the regular updates. And those are 15 hours of content a piece. We’re talking major new stuff, which is going to be coming out constantly. And the way to do that the best for us is with a subscription.”
