If you’ve been waiting to try The Elder Scrolls Online then you might want to hold off for just a little bit longer, because the game is now on its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as The Elder Scrolsl Online: Tamriel Unlimited.
That’s not the only bit of news here though, they’re also taking away the need for a subscription. However, they’re not removing it entirely, and in a model similar to Star Wars: The Old Republic, subscriptions will still be available for those looking to get a little more out of their game.
According to the press release, the game will be subsidized by micro-transactions and downloadable content — and if you decide to pony up the monthly for a subscription which is now referred to as ESO Plus, you’ll get some nice bonuses like a monthly allotment of Crowns which are the game’s paid currency.
It sounds like a good deal, so long as you’re not locked out of content like you were with Star Wars: The Old Republic. From the looks of things though, it seems like your small investment in the physical game will get you quite a bit.
Naturally it’s hard to say for sure, and I personally haven’t played The Elder Scrolls Online since it was in beta, but needless to say I am excited about the possibility of picking it up for the PlayStation 4 when it’s out.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will hit the PC on March 17. If you’re a console player, you’ll have to wait a little longer until June 9.Tweet
