Elder Scrolls Online enhancements Xbox One X

Recommended Posts

With Update 16, The Elder Scrolls Online will be optimized to utilize the advanced graphical horsepower of the upcoming Xbox One X, allowing Xbox ESO players to enjoy a multitude of visual improvements. This functionality will be included in Update 16 as a free upgrade for all Xbox One X players. Here's what you can expect when Update 16 is released for the Xbox One X this coming November 7!

With the Xbox One X, The Elder Scrolls Online runs very close to the equivalent of Ultra settings on PC. This means that the game has never looked better on Xbox. Here's a breakdown of some of the new features and improvements coming very soon:

  • Native 4K resolution
  • Upgraded shadows with Screen Space Ambient Occlusion
  • Upgraded water reflections
  • Increased view distance

Native 4K Resolution

If you're connected to a 4K display, ESO will run at true native 4K resolution without resorting to  upscaling or checkerboarding techniques (methods many games must use to achieve near-4K resolution). 

If you only have a 1080p display, you'll see the game in 1080P, but will still get all the graphical enhancements, with the added benefit of anti-aliasing.

Water Reflections

Until now, reflections on Xbox consoles have been limited to a simple static texture. With the Xbox One X, we're enabling higher quality real-time reflections, which will make reflective surfaces, such as the water in the shot below, appear more realistic.

Screen Space Ambient Occlusion

SSAO is a method of rendering shadows that occurs when objects near each other block local ambient lighting. With the Xbox One X, we have enabled this feature, which helps to make the environment and characters feel more grounded and immersive. 

View Distance

Finally, something we're most excited about is that on the Xbox One X, we're increasing the view distance, which means environments will load in at a farther distance than before and higher-quality models will appear sooner. With improved view distance, you'll be able to admire Tamriel in all its glory!

Watch ESO Live and Win an Xbox One X!

Want to see it for yourself? Check out our ESO Live show this coming Friday where we'll showcase the game on the new console and even give away an Xbox One X to one lucky viewer. Keep an eye out for our ESO Live announcement article over the next few days and see you there!

We can't wait to see how Xbox players react to these graphical and performance improvements on the Xbox One X. Let us know if you'll be playing ESO on the new Xbox One X via Twitter @TESOnline or Facebook!

Update 16 and the Clockwork City DLC will be released on Xbox One and Xbox One X this November 7.
