    There have been rumors telling TESO will be free to play eventually,but I was just wondering whether you think it is true or not?

    Keep an eye out for the sub numbers if it's under 1m I think the game is destined for F2P. They could be stubborn but I don't think they will, unless the sub numbers are strong and stay strong it'll probably end up F2P at some point.

    Dont think so,if alot people already bought game why would they put it in F2P it would be unfair.

    It happens all the time though, MMOs have running costs and if enough people aren't subbing then they flip over to a hybrid model to bring in more people. More people = more people for sub payers to play with which then = maybe more people subbing. F2P people = might use the cash shop so additional income.

    Given the track record of MMOs before it and that the game didn't set the world on fire like they hoped I think it's pretty much a lock it will go F2P at some point.

    From the sound of it, going free-to-play would not save this game.

    From what I played in the Beta, I think some of it might be a bit exaggerated and since it's pay people expect more than normal and it's elder scrolls so people expected "The Elder Scrolls Online" but instead got an MMO set in the Elder Scrolls world. I think it's a bit too much MMO, people didn't want that.

    That all said it could definitely use some work, it's far from perfect.

    ts not going to be free at start that is for sure but with all competition which is free to play i dont think they can stand that model for to much they will be free sooner or later :)

    i dont think so but if they made free version ther would be a lot of limits which only premium users can overpass..

    Ummm i really loved the TES games, but i don't think that they can stay p2p.
    Just.. subscription is not the way to go. There is just that small game... I dont know what's it called... Maybe WOW?!
    Which deletes every subscription game out there.

    Even WoW is suffering heavy sub-losses. People just don't want to pay a monthly fee anymore. Now that the console version has been delayed I don't think there is any chance of it going F2P until after that, they want them box sales and see how it does on consoles first.

    I still think it'll go F2P at some point but I'd bet it won't be until at least next year.

    It will go F2P or they will loose all their players... The game just isnt worth of month subscription...
