It appears that The Elder Scrolls: Online will be joining the list of PlayStation 4 games that won’t require a PlayStation Plus subscription.

This is according to a recent entry on the PlayStation Blog where Matt Firor, the game director of ZeniMax Online Studios, answered important questions regarding the title.

He confirmed The Elder Scrolls Online won’t need a PlayStation Plus subscription, though those who wishing to play the MMO will still need to pay a monthly fee of $14.99 USD.

Regarding the Xbox One, there’s still a possibility that The Elder Scrolls Online will not require an Xbox Live Gold membership, as a few months ago, Peter Hines, marketing boss over at Bethesda, told OXM that they’ve been trying to exempt the game from needing dual subscriptions to play.


A Bethesda representative clarified to Game Informer that  Xbox One’s version of The Elder Scrolls Online will indeed require a Xbox Live Gold membership.

The Elder Scrolls Online is set to release on the PC/Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
