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.
The question of free play versus fee pay is an important one, and will undoubtedly influence how many gamers initially signup for this highly anticipated MMORPG. Despite the opinion of the majority of poll respondents, it appears that ESO will be subscription based. If this is the case, ESO will be competing with an increasing number of free MMORPGs.
