The Elder Scrolls Online video game from Bethesda will be released for the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One on June 9. Bethesda also announced the game won't require a monthly subscription to play, so PS4, Xbox One, and PC gamers will be able to save a few bucks per month.




The PC version of the game will be released on March 17, with current players migrated to The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.


However, those interested in ESO Plus will still have access to "exclusive in-game bonuses, a monthly allotment of Crows to use in the store and access to all DLC game packs while a member."


To play it via console, gamers must have an active PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription membership.
