To help celebrate this week’s launch of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, our Australian office invited presenter and all-round adventurer Sophie Monk to explore the beautiful and expansive lands of Tamriel. With hundreds of hours of exploration, relaxation and adventure, it may just be the most enjoyable and cost-effective summer vacation (or winter vacation in Australia) you could have.
Console launch day is here! To celebrate the worldwide release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited on Xbox One and PS4, we have a letter from Game Director Matt Firor, a new gameplay trailer, and launch week festivities — including contests — to share with you.

Today is a huge day for console Elder Scrolls players, as well as all of us here at ZeniMax Online Studios. Today marks the release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. It’s finally time to invite our console community to experience Tamriel in the remote Second Era. We’ve put a ton of time and energy into making the console versions of ESOTU polished and fun – featuring a completely new User Interface specifically designed for console controller play, as well as a custom voice chat system engineered to make meeting and interacting with other players easy and fun.
I want to take this moment to thank our community of fans and players, without whom this moment could not have happened. Thank you all so much for your dedication, ideas, commentary, and general awesomeness. You are the reason why we do what we do. And of course, kudos to the team at ZeniMax Online, who have been working long hours to ensure that ESOTU on consoles is amazing and fun.
But we’re not done with the launch, of course. We’re continuing to work on new content, which we’ll talk about soon after console launch. We’re committed to always fix problems as we find them, and continuing to ensure that the community is happy and having fun. You are all in for a great time in Tamriel, and we are honored and excited to be the studio that has brought you this experience. Log in, meet some new friends, and adventure through Tamriel. Enjoy the ride! And as always, stay tuned for the next interesting things that we’ll be creating for you. – Matt
News Flash: By popular demand, we’re releasing a disc version of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. You can pre-order the game at your favorite retailer today!
In case you’ve been sleeping since 1945, here’s details on The Old Blood:
The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. In an effort to turn the tide in the allies’ favor, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria…
Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves – pits BJ Blazkowicz against a maniacal prison warden as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound. In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – our hero’s search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.

We are excited to reveal that for the first time since their legendary run on G4 TV’s X-Play, Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb will reunite to co-host the live shows prior to and following the Bethesda E3 2015 Showcase. On June 14TH at 6:45pm PDT, watch as Adam and Morgan host these shows backstage at the Dolby Theatre, giving viewers an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience that will be broadcasted on Bethesda’s Twitch and YouTube.
During the post-show Adam and Morgan will share their unique insights and talk to some of Bethesda’s most renowned developers for exclusive interviews.
One of the best-known personalities in video gaming, Adam Sessler was the co-host of X-Play for nearly 15 years from its inception in 1998 until 2012. He is the former producer and editor-in-chief of Revision3 Games and was also editor-in-chief of G4’s game content.
“I am thrilled to be reunited with Morgan Webb again and coming together for Bethesda’s first-ever E3 Showcase makes it that much better,” said Sessler. “Over the years the talent and games from Bethesda’s studios have always been a point of admiration, and my excitement couldn’t be more palpable. Seriously, my scalp is tingling.”
Morgan Webb co-hosted X-Play on the G4 television network with Sessler for a decade. She also hosted G4 Underground and penned FHM Magazine’s Tips From the Gaming Goddess column.
“I’m looking forward to that moment when Adam and I get to sit down with Bethesda’s developers right after the show wraps,” said Webb. “We know we’re going to see some big reveals at the Showcase, and we will be there to make sure the fans get all the information they’re craving. We’d love the fans to get involved in the conference via Twitter and Twitch, so we can take their questions straight to the people behind the games they love.”
Fans can join the conversation on Bethesda Softworks’ Twitter (@Bethblog) and in the Twitch chat stream during the Showcase by using the official Bethesda E3 hashtag: #BE3. Adam and Morgan will ask viewer questions to developers live during the post-show, with cool prize giveaways for anyone whose tweet is called out.
