The Elder Scrolls Online creative director Paul Sage comments on the post-launch content planned for the game.
He said: “We watch everybody in the market, but I’m a big proponent personally of making sure we keep a high frequency of content releases. A big part of our plans is the future of the game. We always want to make sure there is something new right around the corner. Our plan is to have new content coming out on a really frequent basis. We want to make sure that people are really into the game and get to experience a lot of new things. We will have a lot of content at release, but I know that players are amazing in their ability to chew through content quickly, so we want to make sure there is a constant stream of goodies coming to them.”
“The more frequently you update, the more the players like it. Players are more engaged. I think it is an issue of trust in a lot of ways. They know there is going to be a lot of new content coming in. We’ve talked about Molag Bol stealing your soul at the start of the game, but that’s a launching point. You’ll wrap up the main story in The Elder Scrolls Online at release and that leads into an even bigger story.”
The Elder Scrolls Online is scheduled to launch spring 2014 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac.
