A PlayStation Plus membership will not be required to play The Elder Scrolls Online on PlayStation 4, Bethesda has announced.

However, those on Xbox One will need an Xbox Live Gold membership to access the game, the company confirmed.

“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,” wrote Zenimax Online Studios game director Matt Firor on the PlayStation Blog.

A subscription for The Elder Scrolls Online costs US$15 (NZ$18.15) a month.

The game will be available from April 5 on Windows PC and Mac, and is expected sometime in June on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
