Bethesda is joining the growing list of publishers bringing enhanced editions of titles to next-gen consoles. For Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, Bethesda will be providing graphical enhancement updates for both DOOM Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online.
These next-gen enhancements will be free for those that own the PS4 or Xbox One versions of the game and will be playable in backwards compatibility mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X at launch. The enhancement patches will then come at a later date. This free enhancement program will apply to any current-gen Bethesda game coming over to next-gen consoles, so there could be more announcements still to come.
What exactly these enhancements will be still remains to be seen, but hopefully it will include frame rate enhancements. Bringing a 60 frames per second mode to The Elder Scrolls Online on consoles would be great to see, as would a 120 frames per second mode for DOOM Eternal to bring it a bit closer to the PC experience.
More details are due to be announced during QuakeCon this weekend.
