A PlayStation Plus membership is not required to play The Elder Scrolls Online. 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.
On the subject of servers, PS4 players will play TESO on either the European megaserver or the North American megaserver. Further details about that are expected closer to launch, but it was also confirmed how PC and Mac players won’t be on the PS4 megaservers, which “is good news for PS4 players as they won’t have to worry about contending with higher-level PC players.”
If you’re worried about always having to play with other people in TESO, Firor said, “The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMO that was designed to give the gamer freedom to play with others, or alone. That said, there are instances and areas that are specifically designed and tuned to be taken on with friends.”
The Elder Scrolls Online will launch for the PS4 and Xbox One in June, and you can still sign up for the beta over here. There still isn’t a date for the beta though, just that it’s coming “later this year.”
