The game’s still down for a June release with a “beta exclusively for PlayStation 4 fans later this year” according to Firor. Here’s the rest of the key points:
- A PS Plus membership is not required to play, only The Elder Scroll’s monthly subscription.
- PS4 users will play on console specific servers seperated between EU and US.
- The studio are “still testing and tweaking different Dualshock 4 button mapping configurations” with an aim to create “on the couch gameplay”. It’s also “playing with a couple of different button configurations to find the best and most intuitive use for the touchpad”.
- There’s no detail on HDD space required other than “there is plenty of HDD memory available for the game and for years of continuous post-launch content that will be released”.
- Firor says “Gameplay isn’t identical to Skyrim, so naturally we’ve made some button configuration changes to reflect the differences, such as the use of abilities. At the same time, there are a lot of controller configuration similarities between Skyrim and ESO”.
