PC players who already have an existing subscription can choose to keep paying it for the games new’ ESO PLus service, which offers in-game bonuses and access to all future DLC packs, as long as they remain a member.

An Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus subscription will still be required, and PC gamers will be able to jump in a little earlier when Tamriel Unlimited springs to life on 17 March.

If you value your free time and are planning to be productive for the next year, then ignore everything we’ve just said, turn off your PC, and walk outside. Trust us.
