The Elder Scrolls Online

When patch 2.5.0 launches for the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online on August 16, it will be bringing with it a long requested feature that console players have been asking for for a while now- text chat.

The feature had originally been promised for the console versions of the game before they were even released, but was pulled at the last moment for some reasons- now, it appears as though Bethesda and Zenimax will be bringing it back after all, which is something console players who don’t want to voice chat but still want to communicate will probably appreciate.

The full list of changes in this new update follows:

  • Console text chat
  • Aetherian Archive and Hel Ra Citadel Trial improvements, including Normal and Veteran modes, revamped rewards, and level scaling
  • Dragonstar Arena improvements, including increased monster difficulty and revamped rewards
  • The ability to trade bind-on-pickup items to group members in dungeons and Trials
  • The introduction of the Cyrodiil town capture system
  • Champion Point cap increase
  • Rebalancing and adjustments to Racial Passive abilities
  • Improved Undaunted reward chests (Gold, Silver, and Bronze)
  • Improved Clothier Surveys
  • Improved face effects and animations
  • New achievements for each of the scaled Trials
  • Ability tooltip tags that display the primary role for certain abilities
  • Ongoing Cyrodiil performance improvements
  • Four new crafting styles: Akatosh, Dark Brotherhood, dro-m’Athra, and Minotaur

The full update will be 5.5GB. The Elder Scrolls Online is available now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
