Zenimax announces that the Elder Scrolls Online will be coming to next-generation console Xbox Seriex X and Playstation 5, with free upgrades for those who own it on current consoles.
Elder Scrolls Online is Coming Xbox Series X and Playstation 5
The Elder Scrolls Online has been confirmed to be coming to Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X. Good news for those who already own a copy on Playstation 4 or Xbox One, as they can get a free upgrade when they switchover to next-gen consoles (respectively) when they become available, so no need to repurchase. The same goes for the title DOOM Eternal.
The development team are working on making both titles backwards compatible when the new consoles launch. What that means is, you can continue with your current account, keeping your character progress and continue playing.
We also plan to support backward compatibility so that when the Xbox Series X and PlayStation5 launches, if you are a PS4 or Xbox One player, you can continue playing with your same accounts via backward compatibility on your respective next-gen consoles without interruption.
