Optimized for Xbox Series X|S
The Elder Scrolls Online is now Optimized for Xbox Series X|S, bringing a host of graphical and performance improvements free for all ESO players on next-gen consoles.
This free upgrade unlocks the native power of Xbox Series X|S and allows you to choose between two unique modes: Performance Mode, which emphasizes frame rate by enabling 60FPS at 1440p resolution, and Fidelity Mode, which focuses on visuals by enabling 4k resolution at 30FPS.
All you need is an Xbox Series X|S and a copy of the game to receive the Optimized version. If you have instant-on power mode and auto-update games enabled, Smart Delivery will upgrade you to the Xbox Series X|S Optimized version in the background automatically. Otherwise, a prompt will appear when playing or launching the game to initiate the update.
Whether you’re an ESO veteran or brand-new player looking to start your adventures in Tamriel, the Blackwood chapter and Xbox Series X|S Optimized update will ensure you get the most out of your Elder Scrolls journey.
You can pick up The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood on the Xbox Store today — we’ll see you in Tamriel!
