As The Elder Scrolls Online makes its premiere on PS4 and Xbox One, Bethesda is removing monthly subscription fees, starting March 17th on PC/Mac and June 9th on PS4 and Xbox One with a new name: The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.
If you've been itching to play Elder Scrolls Online on a console, you might want to get some cream, cause it's gonna be a while:
We continue to work on the console versions of ESO, and game development has been progressing steadily, but we are still working to solve a series of unique problems specific to those platforms. Integrating our systems with each console manufacturer's networks—which are both different from the PC/Mac system as well as different from each other—has been a challenging process. It has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn't going to be possible. Though we have made great progress, we have concluded that we'll need about six months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve.
In an effort to curb your disappointment, ESO is offering you the opportunity to buy the game for PC by the end of June, then transfer your game to console when that version is released and you pay an additional $20 for a digital version of the game on PS4 or Xbox One.
The monthly subscription fee only kicks in after your first month. Are you willing to pay that much for The Elder Scrolls Online? You've got until April 4 to decide if you're playing on PC (or Mac), and June for PS4 and Xbox One.
