So how much improvement should I expect over the PC launch version? I only read the reviews back then and it has kept me from getting this at launch.

If you are not the same faction you can never play together.

No, you need to be level 10 to make or join guilds or go to Cyrodiil (PVP).

If you had to break down the class popularity (and what parties are looking for in raids), what would you say it is?

i.e. 40% dragonknight, 30% sorcerer, 20% nightblade, 10% templar etc etc

How is the frame rate on PS4? I was watching a few vids on you tube and they were either clearly xbox or PC, the other ones were pretty dodgey.

Im rather interested but dont want to walk into a game that has no polish. If anyone has some good quality PS4 footage id love a link.

Thanks

Both platforms are 1080p/30fps.

How well each one holds 30fps remains to be seen. The big PVP battles look insane.

Quick frame rate video from my PS4 play.

You'll see its not smooth all the time, it jutters from time to time.

Now, I dont know whats causing this, I suspect lag more than anything else.

Yyou'll notice it the most if you watch around the 50 seconds to 1 minute time.

Oh nice, I was expecting 900p/30fps. Most of my buddies are getting this on the X1 so I went that way.

Directly from the official forums:

A unique game key will not be required for physical editions The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 . As with any other physical copy on these platforms, only the game disc will be needed for verification. This means that you are able to share the game disc with a friend, or purchase a pre-owned copy of the game without any issues.

Can someone familiar with the game clear one thing up for me:

I hear that you can access other faction PvE areas after reaching a certain level. Aren't the quests in those other areas aimed at the other faction? If I'm playing Alliance in WoW, hit level 100, then get access to horde quests, that wouldn't make any sense whatsoever. Just curious how this works, lore wise.

Just wondering as the console version doesn't use a cd key like method. Could you technically account share with friends? (Digital) And just make an ESO login per user.

Also can you change the megaserver on the console version? Or is it client locked?

I can't say for sure since the game hasn't unlocked yet, but I would think so. All games on XB1/360/PS4/PS3 function this way.

I got the rest of the game for that. It's nice to have one area when I can try some of the PVP whenever the mood might take me. Siege weapons, smashing down keeps and large scale warfare... good stuff.

Just checking in.

Wasn't too hyped, but some friends pressured me in and I had some credit on my Live account. Game is downloading now.

Getting hyped now I'm actually reading up on to. After the PC launch my interest nosedived, but it seems they sorted a lot of the issues out? P2P really put me off initially too.

I'll be going with my usual class build for most fantasy RPGs; dual wielding rogue-esque character, probably Bosmer, with Bows to supplement. Any long term PC players got any tips?

Watching the top PS4 stream (in Live From PlayStation), seems to be running well. The odd hitch here and there (hard to tell if that's the game or the stream though), but otherwise looks like a steady 30.

I still can't believe they went with the name Tamriel Unlimited. Just so damn corny.

Hoping the console crowd enjoys it. I've been playing it off and on since PC release a year ago and it has improved a lot since launch.
