Bethesda talks The Elder Scrolls Online's Xbox One and PS4 versions

The Elder Scrolls Online console update 1

Developers ZeniMax Online Studios are still hard at work to bring the MMO to consoles.

The latest update on the Elder Scrolls Online's website has mentioned that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game will receive further information surrounding their development in early 2015.

"Expect to see lots of news about our console versions in early 2015," reads the update from game director Matt Firor.

The PC and Mac versions of the game launched in April this year, but the console versions were delayed and the development team are still working on completing them.

Firor wrote in the update:

"We have been (and will continue to be) steadily working on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO. They are playable and fun right now, but there's still some work to do before we can set an official launch date. First and foremost, we want to make sure that two of our most important systems still in development—the Justice and Champion Systems—are included in the console release. Those two systems will introduce a huge amount of content to the game, and we know everyone is looking forward to the new types of gameplay they provide."

Firor goes on the mention that the console versions "are not just ports of the PC/Mac game" and the team have built a whole new console-specific UI "designed from the ground-up with a controller and a living room play experience in mind."

The update goes over the game's launch year, and lists some of the changes the studio has implemented to improve the game.

The PS4 and Xbox One versions are due to launch some time in 2015.
