As Bethesda Softworks admitted, The Elder Scrolls Online: Console Enhanced upgrade was temporarily delayed, but PS5 and Xbox Series X/S owners won’t have to wait much longer.
Originally, The Elder Scrolls Online: Console Enhanced should be published together with the Blackwood chapter on June 8, 2021, for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S. According to a recent announcement from Bethesda Softworks, this will no longer happen.
Instead, the next-gen upgrade of The Elder Scrolls Online will be delayed by a week and is now scheduled for a release on June 15, 2021. Depending on your own preference, you can choose between a performance and a graphics mode on the PlayStation 5 and of course the Xbox Series X.
The performance mode provides you with smooth 60 FPS and a display in the native 1440p resolution. The Xbox Series S also offers a stable 60FPS. However, the resolution in performance mode on Xbox Series X drops to 1080p.
Number two in the league is the graphics mode, which is primarily intended to score with its visual advantages. On the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, The Elder Scrolls Online is displayed here in the native 4K resolution and 30FPS. In addition, there are improved shadows, environmental coverage with LSAO and SSGI and optimized anti-aliasing.
Technical advantages are also offered on the Xbox Series S. Instead of the native 4K resolution, the graphics mode on the Xbox Series S only supports native 1440p.
