See how Elder Scrolls Online plays on consoles

With the beta tests for Elder Scrolls Online’s Xbox One and PlayStation 4 editions underway, potential players can get an idea of whether the console adaptation will be worth their time. In that spirit, we have two hands-on videos for you to evaluate, one for each of the consoles.

Elder Scrolls Online will be launching on Xbox One and PS4 on June 9th. If you currently own a PC edition of the game, you have until May 9th to take ZeniMax up on its offer to sell you a console edition (with a character copy) for $20.

Check out the videos below and let us know what you think!

Hype made me preorder, back when I was dumb enough to preorder games. Then it got cancelled and turned out to be a MAJOR disappointment in the PC world. Why should I buy a polished flop? We already know it’s nothing like the MMO experience we wanted from an Elder Scrolls. I play MMOs for the PvP. This game only has one area for PvP… and it has a queue so chances are, you wont get in when you want to rub your balls on a persons face. And why no PvP in any other areas if you are at least flagged for it?

They lost my dollar signs when they didn’t just release it for console back in the day. Luckily for me I missed out on spending 60 bucks for another drink coaster.

I’m not touching this already proven flop.

Just stop with this MMO train, you failed at it. GO BACK TO MAKING ELDER SCROLLS VI. 

We could have had ESVI by now but no… that MMO cash grab comes first, right? 

Either way, I just want to give a big shout out to the PC Master Race for paying to be a beta tester for yet another console dedicated video game.
You guys are so nice

I’ll be playing this because my best friend is playing it and we always play MMOs together but I played the PC version long before he got his PS4 and I stopped playing it long before it went F2P. I didn’t hate it but there were enough legitimate grips that I lost my interest. $20 isn’t bad to try it on and I’m hoping I’ll like it enough to hold me over until Black Desert [disappoints me] or something else catches my eye.

deganderson Michael18 Why the insults? While I’ll admit that there is no solid definition as to what an MMO really is, when you take into account every other game that actually bills itself as an MMO, GTA Online barely qualifies. These are two very very different games and you’re a fool for comparing them. GTA sold so well because it’s GTA. It would have sold as well with or without GTA Online. The “story” mode is a fantastic game. The Online is actually pretty poor for an MMO (or an online game in general) with the small player counts and terrible load times. Elder Scrolls Online was never meant to be a separate experience and that’s why it’s not. It’s fine that YOU don’t like it but plenty of people do and that matters far more than YOUR opinion, which, no one cares about. I could go on and explain in more depth but, while you’ll read it out of pride, you wont understand a word, will you?

The main thing bothering me about this console port is the lack of a chat window.  But it bothers me to the extent that I’m annoyed they failed to mention this *before* the $20 copy-to-console offer went up.

dirtyklingon Besides the inventory, I don’t think anything else in the PC UI was designed for a controller in mind. Though, I think the inventory list was just a hold over from Oblivion and Skyrim.

deganderson I don’t think you actually played ESO if you think it’s a bland copy of every other MMO.

Werewolf Finds Dragon “introverted audience”, my early days of MMOdom in EQ and AC were by far the most SOCIAL of any MMOs I have played since, even to today….

If anything, people are way more introverted in MMOs today than they were 15-20 years ago.

deganderson Werewolf Finds Dragon Except for the whole point of even creating this game was to make an MMO that takes place in Tamriel, not an Elder Scrolls game with thousands of people (which is oxymoronic)…..

That’s why they hired a bunch of ex MMO devs to build it and didn’t let Todd Howard and his team at Bethesda work on it, they wanted to build an MMO first, Elder Scrolls title second, they raped the IP for supposed monthly $$$$$, but started dev in 2007 just when the genre was starting stagnate a bit, and by the time it launched in 2014 it was DOA

Michael18 I could say something witty about the latest video box to the right of here. I could also try to explain how I compared the development trajectory of both games but in the end you’re not going to read, or worse, understand that either will you?
