Elder Scrolls Online Launching for Consoles June 9, Ditching Subscriptions

Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is launching on June 9 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will release for Mac and PC on March 17. There will be no subscription fee for the game. Bethesda made the announcement via a press release.

"Beginning on June 9," Bethesda stated,"TES fans on Xbox One and PS4 will be able to endlessly explore The Elder Scross Online: Tamriel Unlimited! This edition of the game features all of the gameplay from the original PC release, including all the new content and changes made over the past year, and it comes without requiring a monthly game subscription fee!"

"In Tamriel Unlimited," Bethesda continued, "you'll be able to purchase optional downloadable content, and the in-game Crown Store will offer convenience and customization items.

Already a subscriber? You'll become a member of ESO Plus to receive monthly in-game benefits and a monthly allotment of Crowns to spend in the store.

Our team remains committed to providing a great experience to all players, and you can expect continued, regular updates free of charge in addition to our new store offerings."

There will, however, be a premium option for the game. Bethesda made this announcement on the PlayStation blog. A premium subscription gives players "free access to all of the DLC packs" for the game.

Another feature for the PC version is the ability to use the PlayStation controller--making for a more console-like experience.
