Zenimax Online Studios answered a few burning questions today on PlayStation’s official blog. The biggest issues that are addressed relate to paying for the subscription and how well gameplay has been adapted to a controller.
First things first, PlayStation fans will not have to pay subscriptions to both PlayStation Plus and The Elder Scrolls Online.
“A PlayStation Plus membership is not required to play The Elder Scrolls Online,” announces Zenimax Online Studios. “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.”
This means, of course, PS4 users who do pay for PlayStation Plus will not have any discount for their Elder Scrolls Online membership.
Zenimax also spoke about playing The Elder Scrolls Online with the DualShock 4. What they’ve said so far is promising. “We love the additional functionality of the DualShock 4 touchpad. We’re playing with a couple of different button configurations to find the best and most intuitive use for the touchpad.”
One other answer, regarding single player mode, grabbed my attention. “The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMO that was designed to give the gamer freedom to play with others, or alone.” A big concern of mine for Elder Scrolls Online is the immersion. It’s too easy to be shaken out of your experience in a story-driven role-playing game once you involve the barbarian horde that is the internet.
