The release on Xbox and Playstation is planned for June 8th. In addition, the developers wanted to publish the new “Console Enhanced” version of TESO parallel to the console launch, with which Tamriel can fully benefit from the performance of the new generation of consoles on Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X / S.

On the official website of the online role-playing game However, those responsible for Zenimax recently announced that the “Console Enhanced” version will be postponed.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Console Enhanced is out now on June 15th.

As a precaution, we’re postponing the launch of ESO: Console Enhanced by a week. With this we want to avoid that both Update 30 (Blackwood) and the extended console version appear at the same time, so that we can devote our full attention to both projects. “

What does the “Console Enhanced” version bring?

Currently you can TESO (buy now 59,95 € )Play on the backward compatibility of the new generation of consoles, but Console Enhanced is a bigger leap forward when it comes to the appearance and performance of the game on Xbox Series X / S and PlayStation 5. Here is a short list of the improvements you can experience when you pack “Console Enhanced” on your new console:

  • 60 FPS: For the first time you can experience the game in performance mode with 60 frames per second on consoles. The previous limit of 30 frames per second will be lifted, so you can experience your adventures with 60 frames at all times.
  • Improved visibility: Thanks to “Console Enhanced”, the in-game field of vision has almost doubled on the new consoles, allowing you to see further than ever before as you explore the ever-expanding world of Tamriel.
  • Finer textures: In addition to the greater character distance, the developers have also made it possible for the new generation of consoles to use higher-resolution textures so that they are even more effective on larger monitors
  • Updated antialiasing: The improved antialiasing also helps to smooth out sharp edges, for example around leaves, grass and buildings in the game, and to make them appear sharper from a short distance.
  • Improved reflections: The developers have also expanded the graphical representation by adding planar reflections, which significantly improves details and realism in the game world. This is particularly evident in areas with water (e.g. Vivec and Sommersend). Please note that in the performance mode the differences in reflections can be different if there are a lot of water surfaces (for example in Trübmoor) or in areas where performance is usually preferred (for example in Cyrodiil and in exams).
  • Improved environmental obscuration with global illumination in the image area: Improved ambient occlusion with SSGI makes indirect lighting more realistic and natural, and generally improves the details of the shades in the game.
  • Enhanced Shadows: The resolution of shadows has been doubled, corresponding to the PC equivalent on “Extreme” – the best possible setting in all versions of ESO. This also includes an improvement in the visibility of shadows.
  • Improved depth of field: This enhancement allows for round depth of field (the highest possible setting), making for smoother, more realistic backgrounds, especially when interacting with NPCs.
  • Improved loading times: Finally, the loading times have also been improved, which are much shorter compared to the last generation of consoles and are thus almost halved on average.

In the settings you have the choice between the quality and performance mode. We already told you in the article what the detailed settings of these two modes look like Full service or quality? Console Enhanced gives you the choice betray.
