The Elder Scrolls Online Has Ambitious Five Year Content Plan
Ryan Martin / 4 years ago
Developer ZeniMax Online says that it has an ambitious five year plan to keep gamers interested in the long term and expand the overall game world. Matt Firor, ZeniMax studios’ leader, stated to VG247 that:
“At five hours the art needs to be good, it needs to feel good when you sit down. Five days is the levelling needs to be good, five months is the end-game needs to be good and the five years is the one you’re talking about.”
Firor believes that for The Elder Scrolls Online to be truly successful it must capture the imagination of gamers in the long term. Firor believes that the game is being designed in such a way where the game can experienced great as a “solo” game or as a multiplayer game.
To keep the game fresh ZeniMax Online will deliver new extra content packages as early as one month after the game is released:
“So the other side of that is we’re planning regular content updates and pretty substantial ones like every month to six weeks – we’re working on the actual cadence just now – but we’re already working on post-launch content now.”
The Elder Scrolls Online is going to be a paid subscription MMO game and it will be available in early 2014 for next generation consoles and the PC.
