Yesterday, ZeniMax Online Studios announced that the console extended versions of The Elder Scrolls Online will be delayed by a week from the original launch date, which is now pushed back to June 15. However, console fans looking to get into Blackwood don’t need to worry about this, as the upcoming chapter release as a whole won’t be affected by the delay.
The news comes via ESO’s Twitter account, and the studio is announcing a delay in the true console versions of the current generation. Currently, like many other games, The Elder Scrolls Online runs on the Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5 in backward compatibility mode, and it looks like players will have to do this for some time when the full versions of the current generation are completed.

Simply put, the new date for Console Enhanced will be June 15, while the official launch of Blackwood on the console will remain June 8. Players will probably buy Gold in ESO and notice that the main improvements in the latest generation versions are an increase in frame rate, with an improved console capable of running The Elder Scrolls Online at 60 frames per second or improving the quality at 30 frames per second. Improved versions also provide better loading times, drawing distances, better textures and anti-aliasing, reflections, and more.
