The Elder Scrolls Online hits PS4, Xbox One on June 9

No subscription fee required to play the Elder Scrolls MMORPG.

The Elder Scrolls Online

The Elder Scrolls Online will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 9, Bethesda Softworks and ZeniMax Online Media announced.

The console editions will ship under the title The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. It will include all the most important new features introduced in the PC version over the last year, as well as other major changes that promise to benefit all players in the coming months.

The most important change in Tamriel Unlimited, however, is the lack of game subscription fees. All you’ll need to play The Elder Scrolls Online on console is a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold account.

The console version will also include the new Champions and Justice systems. The former is a new progression system for max-level characters, while the latter will allow players to punish those caught in the act of stealing or killing.

While the game can be played without a subscription, a premium service will also be offered. This will grant players free access to all of the game’s downloadable content; bonuses to XP, gold, and crafting; and a monthly allotment of Crowns to purchase items from the Crown Store. The Crown Store is a new merchant shop in the game full of optional cosmetic and convenience items that can be purchased for Crowns, a new currency allowing you to buy content directly from each console’s respective marketplaces.

Tamriel Unlimited will also launch for PC and Mac on March 17.
