The Elder Scrolls Online won't require PS Plus, will require Xbox Live Gold

Post by S7 Sticky on Wed Jan 29, 2014 10:36 am

The Elder Scrolls Online will not require a PlayStation Plus membership to play on PS4, ZeniMax Online Studios Game Director Matt Firor wrote in a PlayStation Blog update. Bethesda confirmed to Joystiq that the subscription-based MMORPG will require an Xbox Live Gold membership to play on Xbox One, however.

Bethesda was in talks with Microsoft to allow Xbox One owners to play the game online without the Live subscription in August. That was after Firor revealed the developer's decision to go with a monthly subscription for the game instead of moving to a free-to-play format. The Elder Scrolls Online will cost players $14.99 per month when it launches April 4 for PC and Mac with next-gen console versions following in June. The game was recently handed a Mature rating by the ESRB, to which Bethesda said it is "unwilling to change the game's content to achieve a different rating.".

That sounds cool and all for ps4 user's  but lets face it more then likely if your gaming on the ps4 you have a Plus Account  so you can play other games online anyways ...

Yeah, pretty irreverent.  It will benefit a few cheap skates but like you said, pretty much everybody on the PS4 has PS+ so it's a non-issue.  I think it's cool that it's an option but for most people it really doesn't matter.

Good bit of info to know, even though I probably won't get it since I can't justify $15 a month for one game. Also, might be dropping XBL Gold soon since my year sub ends in like a week or so and I don't really use it (haven't played anything MP in 2+ months and switching to PSN when I go next gen). I might keep it month to month for a bit but there really won't be a benefit to keep Gold when the Silver will allow me to keep up with game updates.

nope you will not be able to play  cross platform, i can see why ps and xbox will never play  with each other but still think its silly they have never let xbox and pc play  with each other
but that ok as from what i have read the Realms  (servers) support massive amount of people on them so they should be packed with people

i have a feeling it will turn out like most MMO's on the pc  
the will push sub for so long then when people see there is  little to no end game  sub's will drop off and then the game will just go free to play....


so im going to try and hold off on this on xbox  might just pick it up on pc and when it hits free to play on xbox ill pick it up im a sucker for MMo's
