Doom Eternal, Elder Scrolls Online To Offer Free Xbox Series X And PS5 Upgrades

Bethesda promises that any other current-gen games that it ports to next-gen will get free upgrades too.


Bethesda has announced that two of its most recent games will get free next-gen upgrades. Both Doom Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online will be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and owning either of them on the current generation will let you upgrade for free.

According to the announcement, both games will support backwards compatibility when the new consoles launch, which should tide you over until the next-gen native versions launch. The company promises more information on release timing and next-gen enhancements in the coming weeks and months.

Bethesda also committed to offering free upgrades for any other Bethesda games that get brought over into the next generation, but declined to mention any other specific porting plans.

The company will be hosting QuakeCon at Home from August 7-9. The digital event replaces previous plans for a physical one, which was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The digital version will still include panels, tournaments, and presentations on games like DOOM Eternal, Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls Online and Dishonored.
