The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – Console Launch and New Trailer!

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.

We’re excited to welcome you to ESOTU’s official launch on Xbox One and PS4. To commemorate this important day, we have a special message to share from Game Director Matt Firor…

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.
