Bethesda announced Wednesday that Elder Scrolls Online will officially be available for the Xbox One and PS4 on June 9, 2015, and that consumers on either of the next-gen consoles or PC will no longer need to pay a monthly subscription to play.
Starting March 17, 2015 for PC players, there will no longer be a monthly payment (though a one-time payment of the game is required) and the game will be renamed The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. The switch to free play will include all of the current content and “exciting new Justice and Champion systems,” according to a press release.
PC players will automatically be switched to the free-to-play system, but can still choose to pay and receive the premium service, ESO Plus, which includes “in-game bonuses, a monthly allotment of Crowns [in-game currency] to use in the store and access to all DLC game packs while a member.”
Xbox One and PS4 players will still require an Xbox Live Gold Subscription and PlayStation Plus Membership, respectively, to play Elder Scrolls Online.
