The Elder Scrolls Online Xbox One and PS4 release date is two months after PC

The Elder Scrolls Online will launch for PC and Mac in April 2014.

Upcoming MMO The Elder Scrolls Online will be released for PC and Mac on April 4, 2014, Bethesda has announced.

The Elder Scrolls Online will also be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the company added, but not until June 2014.

Alongside the announcement, Bethesda released a new trailer for the upcoming subscription-based game, highlighting the conflict between The Elder Scrolls Online's three factions and the massive PvP battles that follow.

Invites for the game's secretive closed beta were distributed to some users back in November.

I was looking forward to this then just thought about the other MMO's i've played and how quickly i got bored of them plus the subscription fee put me off aswell. Think i'll wait for the next Fallout and Elder Scroll (If they make one).

yum yum.... who cares that its a paid subscription. Its going to be well worth it.


are people that poor, that they can't afford this?

MMO's almost always require a subscription so why are people bitching about them?  Oh right...consoles....

Mac support, because those are the people who will pay double for something that's not worth it :p Like the shitty sub fee that will have people stare at it and turn 180.

To keep quality and content going I can see a subscription fee... $15 is just a bit too much. Half that would be about right.

I'm not impressed what i'v seen about this game another great franchise getting "mmoized" aka wow killer.

I hope these "ignorant" people stays away from this game.

I dont want to play with people who says "they need to make tes6 first" , "bethesda gone greedy too".

Skyrim released back at 2011 , Oblivion released back at 2006 , Morrowind released back at 2002 , Daggerfall released back at 1996.

So yeah you have to wait at least 2 years to see another "Elder Scrolls" title.


Elder Scrolls games my by Bethesda Softworks / Bethesda Game Studio.

This game is made by ZeniMax Online Studio.

Releasing on PC first hey...not sure this is a smart move, as others have stated the game could be a massive derp, if so, they are going to struggle to sell it on the larger market that is consoles.

Their subscription fee is the reason I'm not going to bother with this game. As much as I love TES, this is some Microsoft/EA style money hungry bullshit.

Just go take a look at what everquest next is doing, Compared to how this game is just copying the older systems with no change.. and the fact that EQN will also be free to play.. yeah. xD

this is a bad idea....if the game flops then no ones going to buy it on console

People are forgetting that this isn't TES VI, It's simply unrealistic to expect an mmo to be on par gameplay-wise and visually with any single player game (even though the graphics are incredible for an mmo), and if you've been following this game at all you'd know that the devs genuinely care about making a decent TES game and that it isn't just "all about the money". Also, the game's in beta and there's still PLENTY of pollishing to do. 

All I'm saying is, people shouldn't be so quick to dismiss this game, there's a lot of care being put into it and it looks like a far superior mmo to anything on the market/ on the horizon at the moment.

I DO do Elder Scrolls.  


I DON'T do monthly pay to play.  

I DON'T do online.  


Two don'ts are bigger than one do.

I was in beta and i can say it only lives up to average 2014 standards. You want something better try blade and souls or ffxiv lol

@maximo You must not have gotten a beta invite yet.  From what I have seen so far I am very disappointed.

Have fun paying as much for your copy of Photoshop as we paid for our consoles...  if you own anything at all by Apple, you clearly have more money than sense..

@rob9999991 oh man someones back to subs for fuck sakes. It made sense in the 90's this is just greed

@HenrySix  True. I can wait 'til they drop the subscription model. It's not the money that's the issue, but the value. It just doesn't seem worth it.

@Sadek No this is just a MMO with Sub , just like any other MMO.

@SphinxDemonLol B&S and FF14 are plop compared to ESO. People who say ESO is a "shitty mmo" are mad because it's not free or because it doesn't have some ugly anime race in it.

The difference is, Guild wars 2 sucks. F2p and B2p games almost always suck.

@TwinStripeUK I was just joking bro. Anyone who supports flash, adobe or photoshop are not only senseless but also could run a chance of not owning a mac and money as well

@renerak @obsequies probably not no. I was just excited it was on mac ha. No way in hell would I pay more than 5 bucks for that on a sale. Let alone a sub

They made sense in the 00's. Not sure why everyone here keeps saying the 90's.

Lol I can definitely pay the 15$ for a game but this game is not worth that money. Have you even played the beta? It's slow and boring. Seriously. The only thing decent is the graphics.

As for races, ESO has more non - human races than most games. So Idk where your going with that statement
