Elder Scrolls Online Will No Longer Require a Subscription

Posted January 22, 2015 by Kat in News

After months of waiting, Elder Scrolls Online now has an official release date for next-gen consoles: June 9 will finally see its launch for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.  And along with this announcement came another: in a sure sign of where the future of MMOs are headed, the game itself will be moving away from the subscription model into free to play.

It will also be undergoing a slight name change as part of this transition: The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.  This will give players access to all content “plus all the updates and content additions, including the exciting new Justice and Champion systems.”  Of course, the one-time payment to actually purchase the game will still be necessary – but there will no longer be a subscription required to access it on a monthly basis.

Meanwhile, gamers who do remain subscribed will get what is being dubbed ESO Plus, and will include a host of extra goodies, including “exclusive in-game bonuses, a monthly allotment of Crowns to use in the store and access to all DLC game packs while a member.”

Access to Elder Scrolls Online via the Xbox and PlayStation, however, will still require a subscription to Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus.
