The Elder Scrolls Online PS4/Xbox One UI is “Simpler, Out of Way” – Director
Will resemble Oblivion and Skyrim, emphasizing the player’s view of the world more.
The Elder Scrolls Online will be releasing for PCs this April but will also be heading to next gen consoles in June. ZeniMax Online Studios director Matt Firor recently spoke to Examiner about how this will affect the interface. It seems the Xbox One and PS4 interfaces will be similar to Skyrim and Oblivion in that they focus more on the world rather than on excessive details.
“After next-gen consoles were announced, our community continually asked us to bring the game to those platforms as well. We based our UI look and feel on Skyrim and Oblivion – simple, out of the way, with an emphasis on having the player look at the world, not the UI.”
Considering the reception for both games on consoles, that doesn’t seem like a bad idea. Now how about removing that paid subscription, Bethesda?
The Elder Scrolls Online will be out on PC and Mac on April 4th.
