'Elder Scrolls Online' PS4, Xbox One Release Date: Game Launch December 2014

Bethesda Softworks' 'Elder Scrolls Online' is set to launch on the next-gen platforms PS4 and Xbox One. While the game has been available for play on PC and Mac since April 2014, the next-gen console ports are scheduled to release in December of this year, according to Ecumenical News.

For those who may be unfamiliar with the game, the description from Ecumenical News reads, "The Elder Scrolls Online is set in the Age of Heroes, roughly 1,000 years before the events in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the coming of the Dragonborn, and just before the rise of Tiber Septim, the first Emperor of Tamriel."

Unfortunately, since the game's release on the Windows and OS X, the reviews for the MMORPG have been somewhat mixed.

Taking for example one review from Gamespot, the review said that the game had some sort of
"stiffness," to it and gave it a fair six out of ten.

Additionally, the review went on to mention some of the downsides of the game and how it could get somewhat frustrating and monotonous at times. The review read, "Just getting out of Cyrodiil and back to the relative peace of player versus environment can be time consuming, and the fact that you can't limit a group search to your own campaign is a drag."

On the other hand, other review titans made mention that this MMO caters to a specific type of RPG player. Instead of attracting casual video game players, 'Elder Scrolls Online' attracts those that are into hardcore gaming.

Last but not least, IGN, a leader in video game news and reviews gave the game a 7.8 (which by their standards translates to good) out of 10.

Evidently the reviews for the computer versions of the game are somewhat mixed, but there's a good chance that the next-gen console ports can pull in some more gamers, and possibly rave reviews.

While the Xbox One and PS4 ports of 'Elder Scrolls Online' has been confirmed for a December, 2014 release, the exact day of the launch has not been revealed.
