Being primarily an online game - will this game require a subscription ( like WoW etc)?

Perhaps you can provide a link that says no micro transactions,because every website i check says yes they are having a cash shop ingame,to buy ingame items and services.

As S Pearce says there is subscription fee and microtransactions.

I would have liked to have given this a go but there is no way in hell I'm paying a subscription after forking out the best part of 50 quid especially seeing as nowadays we have to pay £40 for the Playstation Plus subscription.

If the game dosnt do well in the first year,there is always a chance it will go free to play later, Star wars the old republic was failing as a subscription based game but since going F2P they have increased their income and are now making a profit instead of a major loss.

Personally i have no problem with subscription based games, but having microtransactions as well isnt a good starting position,just means they are being greedy and will spend alot of time creating items for the ingame shop and less on items gained from quests and drops.

"Once players purchase the game, they will have unlimited access for the first 30 days and can continue beyond that with a subscription of $14.99/30 days (€12.99 / £8.99). The first 30 days begin at or after the official launch of the game when players select their preferred subscription plan. Subscription fees will only be charged after the first 30 days."

good luck getting players in there.. with titles like Warframe being completely cost free w/o subscription and without even a purchase cost this model ist outdated.. =) so I will definitly wait until its for free.. und if its not, i wont play .. or on a shard..

Why isn't there any mention of subscription charges in the product information. Seems like a pretty big part to 'miss' out.

From help.elderscrollsonline.com:

Q: What payment model will The Elder Scrolls Online use?

A: Globally, we support multiple payment options. Players must purchase The Elder Scrolls Online in order to play it. They will have unlimited access for the first 30 days following activation and can continue beyond that with a subscription of $14.99/month (€12.99 / £8.99).

Same here... with a fulltime job, a busy social life and a family to care for, I don't get that much time to play these games. Certainly not enough to get value out of a £8.99/month subscription.

Where do they make that profit from, once the game is F2P? Is it only from new game sales, micro transactions, or something else?

I think the subscription amount has only recently been finalised, but with only a couple of months to go, Amazon should really display this now.
