Elder Scrolls Online Gets Rid of Subscriptions and Console Cross Platform Play Confirmed

Bethesda have announced that for the first time, players will explore the legendary world of Tamriel with their friends on console. In the latest Elder Scrolls game you can adventure alone, quest with friends, or join an army of hundreds in epic player vs. player battles as they explore and discover the secrets of a persistent Tamriel.

Also confirmed is that Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited players will no longer be required to pay a monthly subscription to play. Players will make a one-time purchase of the game and can then play without the requirement of a monthly game subscription fee. The ESO: Tamriel Unlimited becomes available on console in June and beginning 17th March for PC/Mac players.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited includes all the great gameplay from the original PC/Mac game, plus all the updates and content additions, including the exciting new Justice and Champion systems.  All existing accounts will be updated to the Tamriel Unlimited edition in March, and former players will be invited back to the game to experience all that is new in the world.

There will be optional downloadable content available for purchase and an in-game Crown Store for convenience and customization items. Regular updates and new gameplay will still be offered to all players to enjoy free of additional charge.

To celebrate all the good news a cinemtaic trailer was also released, enjoy!
