According to the latest Skyrim Fansite poll, the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online game should be free to play. When presented with the question Should The Elder Scrolls Online Be Free To Play, 67.65% of respondents voted yes, while only 23.53% voted no. The remaining 8.82% of respondents were undecided.
