Elder Scrolls Online (ESO), the upcoming MMO for the popular Elder Scrolls series is approaching its release (April 4th for PC, June for PS4 and Xbox One). With the game costing $60 and having a subscription fee of $15 per month, many have been wondering whether the game will be behind a second pay wall of Live/PSN Plus.

Today, the game’s director Matt Firor confirmed that players on PS4 won’t need to have PSN Plus in order to play the game. On the other hand, Xbox One owners will need Xbox Live Gold.

Firor also confirmed various facts in today’s Q&A, including separate servers for EU and US players, and separate servers between PC and PS4 players. Recently the game was rated M by the ESRB. Bethesda confirmed they will not challenge the rating as they are “unwilling to change the game's content to achieve a different rating”, even though they wished for a T rating.
