There was a huge variety of exciting announcements at E3 and many members of the gaming press had their first opportunity to sample the world of The Elder Scrolls Online, however it’s not all good news. The question on everyone’s lips “Will The Elder Scrolls Online be free-to-play?”. If you asked me a week ago, I would have said yes. The current success of pay-to-play titles is under question and even the biggest names in the P2P genre have been transferring to alternate subscription models. However, after an interview with President of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida, I’m fully expecting The Elder Scrolls Online to be pay-to-play.
