If you’re a PC/Mac player with subscription accounts lasting past March 17, you will be automatically updated to the premium service for the duration of your remaining subscription.

Game Director of The Elder Scrolls Online, Matt Firor, released a statement on the new announcements and changes to The Elder Scrolls Online, in-which he explains how the changes have been inspired by the fans and how they want to play.

“Our fans are our biggest inspiration, and we’ve listened to their feedback on the entertainment experience they want.We know that Elder Scrolls fans want choice when it comes to how they play and how they pay, and that is what they will get. We have made numerous changes to the game over the past year, and are confident this is a game that Elder Scrolls fans will love to play. Players can explore Tamriel with friends, battle creatures, craft, fish, steal, or siege. The choice is theirs. The game offers hundreds of hours of gameplay with unlimited adventures with one single game purchase. We can’t wait for everyone, whether they’ve played before or will be experiencing it for the first time, to begin adventuring in The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.”
