Elder Scrolls Online PS4/Xbox One won’t be straight ports of PC version

More info on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of The Elder Scrolls Online will be revealed in early 2015, game director Matt Firor has revealed in a year-end blog on the game’s official website.  The game had originally been scheduled to launch in June, but the devs decided to push the game back six months for extra polish.

“As I’ve mentioned, we have been (and will continue to be) steadily working on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO,” wrote Firor in the new blog. “They are playable and fun right now, but there’s still some work to do before we can set an official launch date.

He added: “It’s also important to note that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO are not just ports of the PC/Mac game. We have completely replaced the PC user interface with a console-specific UI designed from the ground-up with a controller and a living room play experience in mind. We’ve also added voice chat and full integration with XBL and PSN.

“Expect to see lots of news about our console versions in early 2015.”
