Bethesda plans on bringing at least two of its games over to the next-generation consoles, with the company today announcing that id software's popular shooter Doom Eternal and ZeniMax Online Studios's MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online are getting the upgrade treatment.
Those who've already purchased either of the games on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will receive free copies of the next-generation versions if they jump over to the new consoles at any point. The company added that the development teams are also "working hard to ensure both titles will support backwards compatibility when the new consoles launch."
Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of the duo will be available at launch on the consoles. The company says it will share details on the release window and enhancements these versions will carry in the coming months.
The free upgrades won't just be limited to Doom Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online either:
While we don’t have any news to share just yet on our remaining catalogue of titles, we can confirm we are committed to offer free upgrades for current generation console owners of existing Bethesda titles we bring forward into the next generation of consoles.
Bethesda will be kicking off its all-digital QuakeCon at Home event on August 7, which will run through August 9. The company will have more to share regarding its upcoming projects and existing products during that.
