The Elder Scrolls Online – PlayStation 4 Pro Announcement Trailer

September 8, 2016 – Last night at the Sony PlayStation®4 Pro announcement event in New York City, it was revealed that The Elder Scrolls Online will be one of the first games to support the new Sony PlayStation 4 Pro at launch via free game update. We were excited to participate in the event and show off The Elder Scrolls Online running live in the arcade area in beautiful native 4K.

Today we’re releasing a gameplay trailer, showcasing The Elder Scrolls Online running in 4K on a Sony PlayStation 4 Pro. Please find the link to that trailer below.

When the PlayStation 4 Pro launches in November, The Elder Scrolls Online will be immediately playable in native 4K resolution, whether purchased new, or with existing game discs. Since the game was originally designed for a wide range of PC specifications, ZeniMax Online Studios was able to scale up the presentation alongside the scaled up power of the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro. For players, this means that if you play The Elder Scrolls Online on PlayStation 4 Pro with a 1080p HD television, you will experience increased graphical fidelity; if a player uses a 4K monitor, the game will automatically run in 4K.

Salem Beta Tests Announced

NEW YORK – March 23, 2012 – Paradox Interactive and Seatribe today announced the opening of Beta sign-ups for upcoming Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game, Salem. Developed by Seatribe, Salem is set in the New World when pilgrims were the norm and the frontier was still the greatest risk to a person’s health.

Salem is a unique core gaming experience for MMO players and crafting enthusiasts, known best for its Permadeath mechanic where in-game characters succumb to the harsh wilderness environment. Interested Beta testers can sign up here to participate in the beta.

“We’ve been getting Beta requests from gamers since we announced Salem and it’s great to finally be able to let people into the beta testing” said Björn Johannessen , lead designer at Seatribe. “We’ve chosen to keep the sign up completely open, the more the merrier, and will do our best to listen to all feedback we get”, he continued.

Salem is a free-to-play MMO and scheduled to release in Q3, 2012. Sign up for the Beta here: http://beta.salemthegame.com

Perfect World Entertainment, now-owners of Cryptic Studios Star Trek Online, have announced that the game will be going free to play later this year.

Most importantly, the game will honor the lifetime subscribers by giving them perpetual premium accounts, which boast a number of features over free ones.

“In addition to seeking out new life and exploring strange new civilizations, part of our continuing mission for Star Trek Online is to expand and improve,” said Jack Emmert, CEO, Cryptic Studios. “Transitioning to a free-to-play model is a natural way to share all we’ve built with a broader community of players and we couldn’t be more excited.”
