PS4 owners will be able to play The Elder Scrolls Online without the need for a PlayStation Plus subscription, ZeniMax Online Studios game director Matt Firor has confirmed.

Last year Bethesda said that it hoped it could work around the PS Plus requirement for online play, but didn't sound hopeful.

Thankfully, Sony and Bethesda have been able to come to an agreement that only the game-specific subscription – the same that players on PC and Mac must pay – is required.

"A PlayStation Plus membership is not required to play The Elder Scrolls Online," wrote Firor on the PlayStation Blog. "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."

The Elder Scrolls Online launches for PC and Mac on April 4, followed in June on Xbox One and PS4. It's assumed that an Xbox Live Gold membership will also be required for play on Xbox One.

I just hope the game is now good considering all the hype that has popped up the last few weeks.

Can't help but think of the previews of the past that stated it looked pretty but was as bland as a unflavoured paste.

Both systems still need PS+ and Gold to go online for every other game however, so if you are buying a next gen console purely for a game likely designed for the PC... You may want to reconsider your long term investment.

Unsure how I feel about this. Surely it should be all or nothing... Also, if you need a gold membership (presumably) then why not PS+?

Makes sense, I'd love to know how the World Of Tanks 360 port is doing and whether Wargaming.net is happy or disappointed by the numbers they're doing behind the Gold paywall
