In a statement on the game’s FAQ page (that has now since been deleted), the PS4 and Xbox One versions of The Elder Scrolls Online will both be delayed for six months to allow for more development time, resulting in a new targeted release for November 2014 on both consoles. Bethesda’s statement on the delay mentions:


“The Elder Scrolls Online officially launched on April 4, 2014 on PC and Mac. While it has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn’t going to be possible, we have made great progress, we have concluded that we’ll need about six more months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve.”

The PC version will be free to play by the time the consoles launch

I haven't really kept up with this game since it launched. If anyone's playing, what are your opinions? I know my free company in FF lost a few members to this game when it came out.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online

I've been playing the PC version a bit. It's not too bad, certainly not as bad as some of the reviews would have you believe.

What I Like
-- Character progression system is based on what you do (just like like the single player games), which allows you to play the way you want to play rather than building an "on the rails" character
-- Graphics and visuals are good, and it's fun to visit familiar areas
-- Quests are story driven, rather than of the "Slay ## of these" variety.
-- As of right now, there are a lot of players out there, it feels active

What I don't like
-- The world is separated into zones, rather than one continuous map like the single-player game. Makes it feel very small.
-- The map system is extremely poor. You can't even zoom out of the area you're in (i.e. no in-game atlas). There's not even a minimap!
-- Combat is iffy. I'm getting used to it, though.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online

The rumor of a six-month delay is no longer a rumor, Bethesda has sent out an email about it.

Those who purchase the PC version can upgrade to the console version for $20 and also transfer their character.

Transfer their character? It's not cross play?

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online

Will anyone on consoles care about this 6 months from now? I was slightly interested in this for the near future but a 6 month delay and even more games coming out will push this even further back on the list.

(I wouldn't be shocked at all if the console versions end up cancelled, to be honest. Whether deserved or not, this game already has the stink of failure associated with it.)

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online

Wow...how can an MMO not be cross play?? So they have separate banks of servers for each platform?

yep. I'd assume that pvp would play a lot slower (or at least a lot different) on a console with a controller vs a keyboard/mouse. It wouldn't really be a fair fight.

I hear this argument all time. I think it's BS, especially with these nxt gen consoles. Let's see some real world data about why it can't be done.

I don't see how next gen consoles affect this at all; it's not that it can't be done, the issue has always been that in games that rely on precision and control the mouse and keyboard is more quick and accurate, and coupled with macros and various hot keys, also more adaptable depending on the game.

There was some reports a few years ago that Microsoft's testing had PC gamers crushing console players.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online

Does anyone here still play this? I haven't heard any recent news about the game; just curious how it's holding up. Looks like I made the right choice to stick with FF14.

Well, it's not really F2P if you still have to buy the client.

They haven't announced what that would cost, though.

Good point. Should have just said dropping subscriptions.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online

I really don't know much about the game itself and style but I will say they've got some of the best trailers I've seen. I really liked the previous three and this one is good to...
