ESO On the Play Station 4 and Xbox One

Garbrac June 11, 2013 6 Comments » Share

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

UPDATE

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”.

ARE YOU PLANNING TO LAUNCH FOR PC AND MAC AT THE SAME TIME

All versions of the game will ship within the same timeframe. When we have more to share, we will let you know.

    I don't understand the disappointment. I can't wait to play on my PS4/PC when I get the console&game. It will be great that people who can't afford to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on computers can have a chance to play it.

    Definitely not a good news. A big step to another crap game imo.

    I think I need some time to wrap my mind around this. For now I'll just wait for more info from Zenimax to see what their plans are. I'm trying really hard not to be pessimistic.

    I'm honestly not really sure how to react to this yet.

    To play The Elder Scrolls Online, you need to use your number keys 1-6 to attack;
    1-5 give you your special attacks that require magicka and stamina, and 6 is your ultimate ability (similar to Powers/Shouts)

    Right now in Skyrim, number keys are used for quickslots, which corresponds to the D-Pad on Xbox and PS3 controllers.
    But the D-pad doesn't have enough buttons… I'm honestly confused about how they could possibly make this work.
