Nope, B2P with a subscription option (ESO+).

There's so much regarding this on the official forum, the Twitch announcement and the Reddit AUA. + @Elloa 's stream :)

 

You can wear them as disguises yes, but they won't disguise you in regards to physical appearance.

@Akiho No if you AD unfortunately we can not play together If you have the explorer pack or Imperial version of the game you can create a character without the faction race restriction. Otherwise you will have to make a cool redguard, breton, orsimer :P

#ESO #elderscrollsonline I just watched the live announcement on Twitch and here's a short summary focused on subscriptions, DLC and Crown Store:

 

Update 6 will be the base-line, future content will be DLC.

 

Examples of DLC:

Orsinium / Wrothgar

Clockwork City

Mephala's Realm

Abah's Landing

 

And here is some quotes from the announcement regarding DLC:

"QuakeCon stuff" (as in future content that was presented during QuakeCon).

"Flesh out Tamriel that haven't been fleshed out yet, new stories quest and areas".

"DLC will be scaled to your current level" (instant access).

 

Regarding the Crown Store, here are all the examples from the announcement:

Blacksmith Costume

Chef Costume

Guar Mount (2 different)

Dapple Gray Palfrey Mount

White Mane Horse Mount

Piebald Destrier Mount

 

Mount DLC will be applied to your current mount and not 'new' or necessary to buy and feed.

 

More content from the Crown Store:

Alik'R Dune Hound Pet

Striped Senche-Panther Pet

Striated Pony Guar Pet

Wedding Dress Costume

Stealthy Rogues Pack - Costume Bundle

Woodland Scouts Pack - Costume Bundle

Tribal Shamans Pack- Costume Bundle

Armored Knights Pack - Costume Bundle

Draugr Polymorph Costume

Royal Court Jester Costume

Black & Maroon Dress Costume (Fancy Dress)

 

Costume, mount & pets will be account wide!

 

And regarding the Crown Store being P2W:

"No, our philosophy is customization and convenience."

Apart from the mounts, costume, etc the Crown Store will sell Potions, Repair Kits and Soul Gem packs.

 

And here are more quotes regarding P2W:

"It cut downs the time required to get medium level items." // "The game will still be the best place to get the best gear." // "Time is limited" // "I don't have much time to play" // "We that have families will take advantage of ESO+." // "Crowns will never be able to convert into gold."

Current Subscribers:

500 crowns

100 crowns for every month subscribed

1500 crowns per 30 day remaining on the subscription

 

Former Players:

No they have precised that you can not do that, and you can not trade your crown and items to other players.

Update from yesterday Reddit AUA:

"DLC will be purchased using Crowns, not real money. We'll move all DLC pack purchases into the Crown Store."

I was wrong in my previous comment 2 days ago.

I don't know how I feel about this... it's not necessarily a bad thing but the convenience items are worrying... it would make it easier for friends who used to play to jump in and group... the community? well, in MMOs I've seen go f2p/b2p, it generally has been ok. my first reaction though, was maybe I was right to be thinking of steering clear of MMOs for a while.

Is that true that would make today a very very sad day QQ

F2P/B2P means a priority shift in development. We'll get the stuff they've been working on - Mirkmire, Orsinium, the Imperial City - what ewe've been promised for months, though now only if we're willing to pay to open the content gate. After that? Look at SWTOR. The only content that comes out for months and months is clothing, pets, and mounts for the Cash shop. Hardly any story, hardly any expansion. That's not the game I've paid for, and not the game I want to play.

If I understood correctly they are going to talk about this soon twitch.tv/zenimaxonlinestudios . Me being a first time MMO player, I don't really understand much of this, except that I will probably continue to play (and I have monthly subscription, so I guess that will make me a premium member soon) and will see what's happens then.

I would think theis awas a last minute move people. They aren't doing it betray the fans, but to keep the studio open.
