Elder Scrolls Online won't require PS Plus on PS4

The Elder Scrolls Online on PlayStation 4 will not require a PlayStation Plus membership to access, only the monthly subscription required to play on all platforms, according to a post from director Matt Firor on the PlayStation Blog.

Firor's post also reveals that North America and Europe will each have their own dedicated, separate megaservers for the PS4 version, which will be separate from dedicated Windows PC and Mac servers.

ZeniMax Online Studios are "still testing and tweaking" button mapping configurations for the DualShock 4 controller and are "playing" with different possible uses for the central touchpad. Abilities will use a slightly different control scheme from previous Elder Scrolls games, but Firor notes there will be some similarities in the configuration to The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.

The Elder Scrolls Online will launch on April 4 for Windows PC and Mac, with PS4 and Xbox One versions set to launch in June.
