It has just been confirmed at E3, Elder Scrolls Online will released on the PS4. We’ve all asked if it was going to be on consoles and never got an actual reply, well today we did. Will it be cross platform? will PC players be able to join forces with the PS4 players?
ESO will be released to the PS4 in the Spring of 2014
Confirmed ESO release has changed to Spring 2014 for PC. It was added to the E3 Gameplay Trailer. Makes sense in recent interviews with Matt Firor any time he was asked about the release he would reply with “when it’s ready”.
