Zenimax Online has confirmed that Elder Scrolls Online will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 9th June, over a year since it was initially expected to launch.
As well as the news of the console release, the news that ESO would also be dropping the subscription fee requirement was revealed. Instead, special, “optional” DLC will be sold while regular gameplay updates will remain free.
You can opt to take up a paid subscription, in exchange for that you will become an ESO Plus member. This status means you will receive exclusive in-game bonuses, a monthly allotment of crowns which you can spend in the Crown Store and access to all DLC as long as you remain a paid member.
The plan to allow PC ESO players to transfer their characters to a console version is still intended and those that qualify for the transfer will be contacted directly when the time is right with instructions.
A console beta is expected to take place in April although an exact day and how to take part haven’t been disclosed at this time.
Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus are required to play Elder Scrolls Online as per Microsoft and Sony requirements for online gaming.
