Those that have been waiting for The Elder Scrolls Online have waiting for quite some time, but luckily with the game’s impending launch this spring, that wait is just about nearly over.

Bethesda though still has plenty left to say about the game, as Matt Firor (Game Director, ZeniMax Online Studios) took to answering questions about the PS4 version of The Elder Scrolls Online through Twitter over at the PlayStation Blog. Answering a series of tweeted questions, the developer confirmed that The Elder Scrolls Online will not require a PlayStation Plus membership (now mandatory across PS4 titles for multiplayer access) in order to play: it was also mentioned that “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.”

In addition to answering the question of PS+ requirements, Firor also took to responding to other questions, mentioning that PS4 users will be playing on their own dedicated megaservers (split between Europe and North America) to avoid battling much higher-leveled PC players, talk of trying to incorporate actions with the PS4 controller’s touchpad, and others that you can check out here for more details on The Elder Scrolls Online.

The Elder Scrolls Online releases for PC and Mac on April 4th, 2014, followed by its release on PS4 and Xbox One in June 2014.
