When we hit 2020 there was quite a bit of excitement in the video game industry. We knew that this would be the year that the next-generation video game platforms would hit the marketplace. This was quite the anticipated release, however, the current events thanks to the health pandemic outbreak that is the coronavirus had forced both Sony and Microsoft to adjust how they would be revealing their latest platforms.
Despite the coronavirus changing the world and still being a big part of our daily lives, both Microsoft and Sony are still bringing out the consoles into the market this holiday season. As a result, we’re going to see plenty of new games hit the marketplace alongside the consoles. However, that also means we will see some familiar titles that also hit the market in a re-release. Today we’re finding out that Bethesda is bringing over two current-gen titles onto the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Players can expect to see Doom Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online both make a jump onto the next-generation consoles. Best of all, those that already own a current-generation copy can find that there will be a free upgrade to the next-generation console platform. Both titles have been reviewed favorably and could provide both veteran players a new incentive to try the games out once again or newcomers to enjoy an already established and beloved game when they purchase either the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5.
Unfortunately, we’re still not sure just when either console platform will hit the marketplace. Both Sony and Microsoft have been tight-lipped in regards to their consoles launch date. We only know that they should see a release sometime this holiday season. Likewise, we’re not sure just how much the consoles will run consumers so for now, it’s purely a waiting game to see which company makes the first announcement move.
