Zenimax Online has announced a release date for The Elder Scrolls Online: Console Enhanced.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Console Enhanced will arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on June 8.

As revealed during the Blackwood Chapter Preview Event, the studio announced those who own or purchase the MMORPG on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will receive free access to ESO: Console Enhanced.

You can expect enhanced performance and visuals on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. Below is a brief look at upgrades you can expect in June:

  • Next-Gen Performance: Previously, ESO ran at 30FPS on console, but with the next-generation power of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, the game will run at a crisp 60FPS while in “Performance Mode.” If you’re looking for a visual feast, enjoy native 4K at 30FPS in ESO’s “Fidelity Mode.”
  • Increased Draw Distance: For players who love to admire ESO’s vast beauty, the game’s draw distance has nearly been doubled, allowing a deeper view of the ever-growing world of Tamriel.
  • Improved Loading Times: Moving up to next-generation power means loading times on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 have been nearly cut in half on average, enabling console players to remain immersed in ESO’s stunning world with less waiting.
  • And much more: ESO: Console Enhanced brings about a number of other changes like improved reflections, shadows, depth of field, ambient occlusion with screen space global illumination, along with updated antialiasing and unlocked textures. For full details, be sure to visit us online.
