Console players had a long wait time before they could get their hands on copies of The Elder Scrolls Online, but the game has launched on consoles, and at least it had months of gameplay refinement first. Unfortunately those months of refinement don’t seem to have helped in the bottleneck department, as there are widespread player reports on the official forums and Reddit that logging into the game is utterly impossible on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for both NA and EU players.
Developers have stated that they’re working overtime to get the login issue fixed, which is cold comfort to people eagerly anticipating the game’s console debut today. On the plus side, if you’re artist Tyler Kirkham and spent $50,000 on a basement themed after the series, you can at least get some of the experience of being in the game just by sitting downstairs.
We’ve got the shiny new launch trailer below.
