According to The Elder Scrolls Online Game Director, Matt Firor, Bethesda is currently “polishing the hundreds and hundreds of hours of content, making combat even more fun and responsive, fixing quest issues, and much, much more.” They also plan on using the remaining time prior to launch reacting to feedback from internal and external game testers, as well as collected gameplay data.
Bethesda plans on doing the staggered rollout of the desktop and next-gen console versions of the mmorpg in order to “ensure an enjoyable, smooth gameplay experience.” Firor states, “our number one priority is to ensure a trouble-free, stable rollout for everyone.”
As part of the announcement, Bethesda also released the above “War in Cyrodil” trailer, which takes viewers to Tamriel to witness the Alliance War.
The Elder Scrolls Online releases to the PC and Mac on April 4, 2014 and to the Xbox One and PS4 in June of 2014. For more information on The Elder Scrolls online, visit the official website.
