The Bigger Game – Elder Scrolls Online
PS Plus Free Games Predictions June 2021
Following the release of the PS5, Sony has changed up how it dishes out its PS Plus free games each month. Rather than having an assortment of PS4 titles, we tend to get one big new PS5 game and a couple of smaller PS4 titles. For June 2021, we suspect that the big PS5 game could be the release of Elder Scrolls Online on Sony’s latest console.
The reason? Aside from the fact that June’s fairly quiet for PS5 releases outside of Ratchet & Clank: Rifts Apart (and as much as we’d love to get that for free on PS Plus, we’re being realistic over here), Elder Scrolls Online is the perfect kind of game to give away on PlayStation Plus ahead of the Console Enhanced Edition releasing in June.
Not only does it give players the base game and the Blackwood Prologue, which kicks off a story that takes players right up to the upcoming chapter — Greymoor — releasing on June 8, alongside the Console Enhanced edition of the game for PS5.
Once players have got themselves all hooked on the mechanics and world of Tamriel, there’s a ton of expansions for players to pick up to add even more hours to their journey. The game will run at 4K, 60 FPS on PS5, with increased draw distances, improved reflections, ambient occlusion, shadows, greater depth of field and much more.
It’s a bit of a win-win for everyone involved, if you ask us.
Note: The Elder Scrolls Online Console Enhanced Edition releases on June 8 for PS5 and is free to all PS4 owners of the game if they have a PS5. We imagine it’ll be a free PS4 version given away, with the option to upgrade for free come June 8.
