Bethesda‘s MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 9 with several updates. With The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited version, the game will include everything from the original PC and Mac game, plus all updates and additional content. And the best news: it will not require any monthly subscription fee, which means that it will be completely free to play if you buy the boxed game itself. Pre-orders for The Elder Scrolls Online on consoles will also automatically transition to the new game.
Tamriel Unlimited is also coming to PC and to the Mac. The existing PC or Mac accounts will be updated to the Tamriel Unlimited edition on March 17, and will be free of charge. You’ll just have to log in and update the client.
Of course, free to play wouldn’t exist without a paid service isn’t it? That one will launch alongside the re-launch and it is entitled ESO Plus. Like with the original subscriptions it will be offered in 30-, 90-, and 180-day durations.
ESO Plus members have full access to all downloadable content, a monthly allowance of Crowns (an in-game currency), bonuses to experience earned and gold acquired, plus other benefits.
“We have made numerous changes to the game over the past year, and are confident this is a game that Elder Scrolls fans will love to play,” said Matt Firor, game director on The Elder Scrolls Online. Players can explore Tamriel with friends, battle creatures, craft, fish, steal, or siege. The choice is theirs. The game offers hundreds of hours of gameplay with unlimited adventures with one single game purchase…”
