Elder scrolls online requires Xbox gold but not PS plus

The PS4 version of The Elder Scrolls Online will not require a PlayStation Plus subscription, Bethesda has said

Normally, you need PS plus account to play online with the PS4, so it was possibie that PS4 owners would have to pay two separate monthly payments in order to play the MMO.

However, it's now been confirmed that PS4 owners will only be required to pay the same monthly subscription associated with The Elder Scrolls Online that PC and Mac users will pay.

on the other hand though, Microsoft has confirmed to Joystiq that the Xbox One version will require an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play.

The Elder Scrolls Online is set to release for PC and Mac on April 4, 2014 (4/4/14), followed by PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June 2014.

Anyone who gets the MMO will receive unlimited access for the first 30 days following activation. Beyond that though, a subscription of $14.99/month (€12.99 / £8.99) will be required.

In a new PlayStation Blog fan Q&A Bethesda confirmed that ESO servers will be split between region (Europe and North America) and platform, so PC and Mac players will not be able to play with PS4 users and vice versa.
