Wow, can that woman fight or what?!

The Elder Scrolls Online will be coming to next-gen consoles sometime in June, and those playing on the Xbox One will be required to have a gold membership in addition to the $14.99 per month subscription fee. Bethesda tried to convince Microsoft to waive the gold requirement for subscription holders on the Xbox One but failed to do so.
