Bethesda Wants Microsoft to Remove Gold Subscription Requirement for Elder Scrolls Online
Bethesda has expressed interest in having Microsoft end the Gold Subscription requirement to play The Elder Scrolls Online.
The move makes sense, especially when factoring in the reality that those who wish to play the MMORPG on the Xbox One, players will need to pay twice: Once for the game’s monthly subscription fee of $15 (£8.99 a month in the UK), and again for the Gold Subscription.
Speaking with OXM, Bethesda’s marketing manager said “we have been in talks with Microsoft about that very thing, and seeing whether or not there’s any room to change their minds about that, for folks who are only playing The Elder Scrolls Online and don’t want to pay for an Xbox Live Gold subscription, just to pay for the Elder Scrolls Online.
“The answer right now is that’s the way it works, but it’s something that we’re aware of and we keep pushing on, to see if there’s something that can be done.”
The Elder Scrolls Online will be available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in spring 2014.
