During E3 2013 Sony announced that a PlayStation Plus subscription was required to participate in online multiplayer on PS4. However, the platform holder quickly clarified that certain online games such as free-to-play and massively multiplayer online titles wouldn’t require Plus membership in order to lower the barriers to entry as far as these types of games are concerned.

The Elder Scrolls Online developer ZeniMax Online Studios recently reiterated this point during a Q&A with the PlayStation Blog regarding the upcoming PS4 version of this highly anticipated MMORPG, 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.”

In contrast, the game’s publisher Bethesda recently told Joystiq that Xbox One users will need a Xbox LIVE Gold subscription to play The Elder Scrolls Online.


The game is due out on April 4th on PC and Mac, with a release to follow on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June. Beta sign-ups are still available for all platforms at The Elder Scrolls Online’s official website.
