Elder Scrolls Online on consoles will not require a CD Key… Hooray!

Good News Everyone

Over the last few days, word started spreading about the console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. The rumor, which started from an official forums admin from Zenimax Online, indicated that the console versions of the MMO would require a CD Key, and thus could not be rented, sold, loaned or bought used.

Bethesda has stepped in and cleared that up.

Hmm, okay. Well, what about the official post on the forums that lead us to run a story. Oh? That’s been edited too? Here’s the full text from that now.

EDIT: This post has been edited to include the correct information on this question:

The physical console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited does not require a one-time game code. As with any other boxed PS4 / Xbox One game only the game disc is needed for verification.

Well, there you have it. Yesterday, I talked about how an MMO jumping to consoles would need to adopt console gaming standards and rid itself of a CD Key in order to work. Well, my fears were apparently for nothing. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will not require a CD Key or any type of one-time use code in order to play.

That, as Professor Farnsworth would say, is good news.
