After suddenly delaying the title last May, Bethesda is finally giving us a release date for its Elder Scrolls MMO. Mark your calendars: June 9th is the date The Elder Scrolls Online (now subtitled Tamriel Unlimited) comes to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and there are a few welcome changes to boot.
Along with the release date, Bethesda is announcing the end of its subscription strategy. The game will now be priced like every other console game: a one time purchase will grant you access to the entire game. Previously, Elder Scrolls was intended to be entirely subscription-based. There is still a "premium" subscription service called ESO Plus, however, which will grant users access to in-game items and some Crowns (in-game currency) to spend, but it's not required to play the game. The subscription will also grant access to all available DLC expansions.
