No funny hats for you.

Bethesda’s Pete Hines has defended the decision to have a subscription fee for The Elder Scrolls Online by saying that the company will provide “real and significant” content, and not just crappy things like “a new sword”.
“We feel pretty strongly about the support we’re going to have for the game and what you’re going to get for those dollars,” said Hines in an interview with Gamespot.
“We’re also very confident in our ability to support it with content. And not content of the magnitude of, it’s a new month, here’s a new sword or here’s a funny hat, but content that is real and significant and it feels like regular and consistent DLC releases.”
Hines said that the subscription fee enabled all players to be on an equal footing at all times.
“So you wind up in a situation where you say, look, by and large, when you’re talking about regular content, adding new features and new parts of the world, either you’re all in or you’re not.”
There’s another TESO beta happening this weekend, and we’ll have more keys to give away very soon.
