Elder Scrolls Online Could Possibly Get Graphics Upgrade on PC & PS4 in the Future

UPGRADED graphics could be on their way to the Elder Scrolls Online in the near future.


Developer Zenimax Online Studios admit they want to boost the frame-rate on both the PC and PlayStation 4 in order to support the massive amount of gamers supported by the server.

This is welcome news ahead of the upcoming Thieves Guild DLC pack, which includes more story quests as well as a 12-player Trial called The Maw of Lorkhaj.



Zenimax outlined their plans during an ESO Live steam on Twitch, explaining: "We are planning on a DX12 upgrade and expect that this will give us a number of graphics performance improvements. 

"We cannot provide an ETA at this time, but it is something we're working towards. We do have plans to take advantage of the [PS4] seventh processor core in some capacity, and are still discussing the exact details internally."


Zenimax also took the opportunity to explain changes to the fog system in the Elder Scrolls Online, adding: "We have set maximum fog distances in each environment to hide other immersion-breaking issues. This is an old issue and something we have been slowly working on addressing.

"We would like to go back through the older zones and update them accordingly, but that work is currently lower priority than creating new DLC zones."
