While we’re all waiting patiently for the release of The Elder Scrolls Online for the PS4 and Xbox One, Matt Frior of Zenimax Online Studios revealed that the console version of the game will have a voice chat integrated when the game launches next year.
Currently, Zenimax Online Studios is currently hard at work polishing the console version and making sure that when it comes out, it will be what the gamers want. According to Matt Frior, the console version isn’t just a port. To make the game easier to play on consoles, the UI will be revamped to make sure that it’s easier to navigate with the use of a controller.
As I’ve mentioned, we have been (and will continue to be) steadily working on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO. They are playable and fun right now, but there’s still some work to do before we can set an official launch date. First and foremost, we want to make sure that two of our most important systems still in development—the Justice and Champion Systems—are included in the console release. Those two systems will introduce a huge amount of content to the game, and we know everyone is looking forward to the new types of gameplay they provide.
When the console versions launch in early 2015, it will include all of the previously released updates, including up to Update 6. We should hear more about the console versions next month!
