Despite previously preparing for a June 2014 launch, and expecting only a 6-month delay, Bethesda has finally announced, for those with an Xbox One and PS4, a proper release date for The Elder Scrolls Online. More importantly, it comes with a complete revamp of their payment model, as The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will come with no subscription required on any platform. All players need to do is purchase the game in the first place, while those with consoles will need to maintain either their PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscriptions in order to access online play.

That doesn’t mean that this new-look Elder Scrolls Online won’t have a subscription to offer. ESO Plus will be a new, completely optional, monthly subcription model that offers a monthly crown allotment of 1,500, 10% bonuses to XP, research/inspiration gain crafting and gold acquisition, plus access to any and all DLC game packs. Those on PC with a current subscription will be automatically enrolled in ESO Plus when Tamriel Unlimited takes over for them on March 17th. An FAQ has been provided to answer any and all questions from those wondering how their current play status is affected going forward.
The Elder Scrolls Online is already available on PC, with Tamriel Unlimited taking over this March 17th. It will also be heading to PS4 and Xbox One on June 9th later this year.
