The Summerset Isles are due to become a much busier tourist destination next month with the arrival of Elder Scrolls Online on the Xbox One and PS4. Some players have been engaged with this controversial title for over a year now - they have invaluable experience and advice in terms of whether this is an MMO that you'll enjoy. ESO is not Skyrim online, we've all felt that stinging disappointment, but that's not to say that this intriguing MMO isn't worth your time on its release date!

Far from it, and we have a great little guide to get you ready and up-to-date on everything you should know before buying this title on the Xbox One or PS4. But as a player who's only dipped in and out of ESO since its release date, I can only attest to some of the more significant changes to the structure of the game. But the area that other players of this MMO are more well informed of, is Elder Scrolls Online's community.

Elder Scrolls Online: New Players for the Xbox One & PS4 Release Date

I have no doubt that Elder Scrolls Online will acquire a great following, at least within its first month. However, it's hard to predict whether players will be captivated enough to stick around for longer periods of time. After all, the likes of [Batman: Arkham Knight](tag:2683936) is close to its release date and The Witcher 3 could keep you busy for months on end. But I'm hopeful for the future of ESO, and hopefully new players will be too.

Though, I was wondering what potential newcomers to the MMO have questions about. Are you intrigued by Elder Scrolls Online's combat, or PvP? Do you want to know more about in-game purchases, mounts or what other MMO it is comparable with? Be sure to give us an ask and hopefully the community will be able to chime in to give you hand.

Alternatively, those who'd like to - I don't want to use the word warn - extend their recommendations of the game to new players of the Xbox One and PS4 versions, we'd be happy to hear from someone with experience. ESO can be a difficult game to get into at times - as with all MMO's it has a lot of grinding. But with the removal of a subscription fee and tons of hours to wile away in a beautiful land, I think ESO is worth checking out.
