ESO PS4 Q&A Released

Playstation Blog has published an ESO Q&A for PS4 fans this morning. Some burning questions still linger, however, some very important ones were answered. For instance, we now know that a PSN subscription will not be required in order to play ESO.

Will playing online with The Elder Scrolls Online have a separate subscription compared to PlayStation Plus? — @NathanaelMoner

A PlayStation Plus membership is not required to play The Elder Scrolls Online. 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.

Of course, the game will be controlled via Dualshock 4 on the PS4, so naturally here were many questions revolving around the controller. However, some of the specifics that fans are searching for remain under wraps as Zenimax finalizes details.

How will the controls be mapped on PS4? Will it be similar to Skyrim on a controller? — @Brandon_Roark_

Throughout ESO’s development, our goal has been to create an MMO that is fun to play and is familiar to Skyrim fans. Gameplay in ESO isn’t identical to Skyrim, so naturally we’ve made some button configuration changes to reflect the differences, such as the use of abilities. At the same time, there are a lot of controller configuration similarities between Skyrim and ESO.

There were are also a few questions regarding the megaservers that are powering the game, such as any shared servers between PC and PS4.

Will PS4 users be on the same severs as PC users? — @Adzaofoz

PS4 users will have their own dedicated ESO megaservers (European and North American). PC and Mac users will not be on the PS4 megaservers. This is good news for PS4 players as they won’t have to worry about contending with higher-level PC players when ESO launches on PS4.

Perhaps most interesting to fans itching to get their hands on the game remains the topic of the beta.

When does the PlayStation beta start? And when should we expect beta invites? — @Wretched86

We do not yet have a date or timeframe to share, but we can assure you that there will be an ESO beta exclusively for PlayStation 4 fans later this year. Keep an eye on elderscrollsonline.com, as well as here on PlayStation.Blog, for further details!

These are just a few of the details listed in the Q&A. Head over to the Playstation Blog for the full list of questions and answers revealed about ESO on the PS4.

ESO releases on April 4, 2014 on PC and Mac, and in June 2014 for PS4 and Xbox One.
