Great news for PlayStation 4 owners - you won't need a PlayStation Plus subscription to play the upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4, as confirmed by the game's director, Matt Firor, on the PlayStation Blog. All that will be required is the same monthly subscription that PC and Mac users will pay.
Unfortunately for Xbox players, however, Bethesda confirmed to Joystiq that the game will require Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to be played on Xbox One. The company was reportedly in talks with Microsoft back in August to allow Xbox players to play the game without the XBL Gold subscription, but it looks as if those talks fell through.
Firor also confirmed that the servers would be split amongst North America and Europe, squashing any hope that there would one megaserver between both territories. PS4 players will also be on their own dedicated megaservers, separate from PC and Mac users.
The Elder Scrolls Online will launch first on PC and Mac on April 4 with a $15 monthly subscription cost, and release later in June on PS4 and Xbox One.
