New generation versions of The Elder Scrolls Online and DOOM Eternal games have been announced. Bethesda said with a statement that both games will come to Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. Moreover, if you have purchased these games before, you will be able to upgrade to the new generation versions for free.
As the release dates of the new generation consoles approached, we started to hear such good news from some companies. In other words, we will be able to access new generation versions of many games we bought in this generation for free. We have seen before that some important games will use this strategy. Bethesda company joined the same situation. The official statement from the company is as follows;
Players who own or purchase games for Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade their games for free when the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions are released. Additionally, our team is working hard to ensure that both games will support backward compatibility when new consoles are released.
In the coming months, we’ll be able to share more information about The Elder Scrolls Online and DOOM Eternal for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, including an estimated release period and a list of improvements. While there is no news we can share for the rest of our games at the moment, we can say that we are committed to bringing free upgrades to Bethesda games that we will carry to the next generation consoles for the players who own the current generation.
