Elder Scrolls Online Coming to Next Gen Consoles Spring 2014

My head just exploded.




Check out our Hands on at E3 with the Elder Scrolls Online

 


 

At the Sony Press Conference today for E3, Sony just announced that Elder Scrolls Online would be coming as an exclusive beta to PS4 first, with Pete Hines then announcing it was coming to both XBox One and PS4 in spring.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the press release:

 

 THE ELDER SCROLLS® ONLINE COMING TO NEXT-GENERATION CONSOLES

Latest Game in Award-Winning Franchise Arriving on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac in Spring 2014

June 10, 2013 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks® today announced that The Elder Scrolls® Online is in development for both the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The game will launch on these consoles, in addition to the previously announced PC and Mac versions, in Spring 2014. The Elder Scrolls Online is the latest chapter of the award-winning franchise – and will bring the legendary experience online for the first time. Players can choose their own style of play as they embark upon an epic adventure across all of Tamriel, playing alone on a heroic quest as in previous Elder Scrolls games, exploring the huge, rich world with a few select friends, or playing with hundreds of others in massive PvP battles to save the Empire.

“We are thrilled to bring this game to consoles, in addition to the PC and Mac,” said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. “It’s something our fans have been requesting since we first announced the title, and something our team is excited to offer. Everyone will be able to play The Elder Scrolls Online the way they want to play”

After having experienced extended hands-on gameplay and testing the game’s innovations, quests, and unique features, The Elder Scrolls Online was described by MMORPG.com as “a perfect sauce of awesome.” The game has emerged as one of the industry’s most anticipated titles – and praised by such diverse press outlets as IGN, GameSpot, Game Informer, MMORPG.com and TenTonHammer.com. Millions of Elder Scrolls fans have already signed up for the beta  on PC and Mac to gain early access to the game, and console fans can now sign up to be eligible for the console beta test  which will begin later this year. For more information or to sign up for beta on your preferred platform, visit www.elderscrollsonline.com.

The Elder Scrolls Online will be the first Elder Scrolls title to be played online after nearly 20 years of offering these best-selling, award-winning fantasy role-playing games for single player only. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® is the most recent chapter of the Elder Scrolls story. Skyrim, developed by Bethesda Game Studios, was released in November 2011 and enjoyed worldwide critical and commercial success. As the follow-up to the 2002 Role-Playing Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind®, and the 2006 Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion®Skyrim earned hundreds of ‘Game of the Year’ awards and has sold over 20 million copies.

The Elder Scrolls Online, is being developed for the PlayStation4 system, Xbox One, PC, and Mac by ZeniMax Online Studios. The studio is headed by industry veteran Matt Firor who has more than 20 years of online game development experience. Working with Matt is a team of highly regarded developers who have created some of the best known online games ever released.
