Elder Scrolls Online has no cross platform play.

So this news is a little but of a downer but not a deal breaker.

 

So Zenimax Online has confirmed that their upcoming MMO The Elder Scrolls Online will not support cross-platform play between the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PC.

All three versions will be hosted on separate servers to ensure fairness in PVP. They also assured fans that with the next gen console announcements will not time away from developing the PC version.

According to an interview on Polygon creative director Paul Sage stated “PC is still untouchable, it’s the PC, We’re working to perfect UI and gameplay specific to the PC version of Elder Scrolls Online and the console version will have its own UI and be more controller-specific, but PC is going nowhere.”

So that’s some good news though I do believe it would have been a fun aspect to be able to play with my friends who bought the games on different platforms.

The Elder Scrolls Online will release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in spring 2014

  1. Not surprising. It takes a lot of work to allow all the companies to work together for one publisher's game.
    Either way...I'm sure it'll be good on any system you pick it up on.

  2. Advice from townsfolk, spotting an evil skeleton archer or simply following other players all lead you to where you need to, often literally, bury your hatchet. elder scrolls online forum
