PlayStation owners who aren’t too thrilled about double dipping a subscription to play The Elder Scrolls Online can relax. To enjoy the latest from Bethesda, you’ll just be needing to subscribe to the game itself, which will be costing $14.99 a month.
PlayStation Blog confirmed the news in blog post, stating:
A PlayStation Plus membership is not required to play The Elder Scrolls Online. PS4 players will only be required to pay the same monthly subscription associated with The Elder Scrolls Online that PC and Mac users will pay – nothing more.
Of course, this doesn’t totally clean up the air around the game, though. Fans who do want PlayStation Plus will still need to pay two subscriptions to play, and those who only enjoy playing The Elder Scrolls Online will have to enjoy it a lot because they will be closed off from any other online games.
However, just remember that PlayStation Plus is an amazing deal which throws discounts and free content at its subscribers like candy. The $50 a year more than pays for itself after a few weeks. Microsoft has not yet acquiesced, and an Xbox Live subscription will be required to play The Elder Scrolls Online on the Xbox One.
How about it? Does this sell The Elder Scrolls Online to unconvinced PlayStation 4 owners yet?
The game will be released for PC and Mac on April 4, and the console versions are just about set in stone for a release in June.
