Bethesda Talks A Stronger Line On Cross-Play

Bethesda Talks A Stronger Line On Cross-Play

Potentially, this could put the PlayStation 4 release of the game in jeopardy, given Sony's resistance to allowing cross-platform play with other consoles.

Along with the Wolfhunter announcement, Bethesda also gave a brief look into the upcoming Murkmire add-on, detailed new benefits for ESO Plus subscribers, and announced a free-to-play weekend for Elder Scrolls Online. The expansion is set to hit on August 13 for PC players and August 28 for those on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. PS4 owners also couldn't play with people who owned those consoles, either, which effectively separated them from other console players. The company's senior vice president of global marketing and communications, Pete Hines, said in a recent interview with Game Informer that it might not release the game on platforms that don't support cross-play. Major multiplayer games including Minecraft, Fortnite, and Rocket League continue to be made and sold to the PS4's 82-million-plus potential players, and Sony continues to rake in licensing fees from those sales.

You want guys who are playing well", Furyk said as he discussed the attributes needed by contenders for a wildcard pick. So just had a lot of things go wrong. "[To] look back where I was a couple months ago, four months ago, is incredible".

"It is our intention in order for the game to come out, it has to be those things on any system", Hines said. While one Sony executive recently said he was "confident" a cross-platform "solution" was coming in the future, this is the kind of thing that could make it come that much faster.

Hines went a step further to state that Elder Scrolls: Legends won't be on any system that doesn't support cross-play. We've seen werewolves in Elder Scrolls games of the past (again, Bloodmoon was basically the werewolf expansion) but the footage of Wolfhunter is one of the first times that we've seen the werewolves used in such an overtly terrifying way. But those [terms] are essentially non-negotiable. "That is counter to what the game has been about". For those on PC and Mac, you can expect to play Wolfhunter next week on August 13, with it arriving for Xbox One and PS4 players on August 28. There's a difference between wanting to have platform exclusives-though many people would probably kill to play a "Super Mario" game on a non-Nintendo platform-and hindering attempts to bridge the gap between gaming devices.
