Waking Flame has come to The Elder Scrolls Online on PC, new enhancements for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S soon

From Press Release:

Today, we are excited to release the latest DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online: Waking Flame, available now for all PC/MAC and Stadia players. The new DLC will launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 on September 8.

The dust has settled from the events of The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood, yet schemes of Mehrunes Dagon persist in its aftermath. With his dominance growing stronger, The Elder Scrolls Online: Waking Flame DLC will deliver two new four-player dungeons: The Dread Cellar and Red Petal Bastion.

All 19 million ESO players to date can look forward to Update 31, a base-game patch that will include a bevvy of bug fixes and performance enhancements, plus new houses, furnishings, and houseguests available in the in-game Crown Store. Here are some key improvements coming to the console update when it arrives on Sept. 8:

  • Dynamic resolution scaling enabled for Performance Mode on Xbox Series X|S and PS5, scaling resolution on Xbox Series X and PS5 between 1080p-2160p and on Xbox Series S between 1080p-1440p
  • For all consoles except for the base PS4 and base Xbox One, a new HDR mode known as “Default” arrives in the Waking Flame DLC, a brand-new setting to keep the intended look of the game’s original artwork while taking advantage of the increased range. For players who prefer the way ESO looks in HDR right now, that mode will remain an option under the name “Vibrant”
  • ​For PC Players, the console render multithreading setting that debuted with Console Enhanced in June will arrive on PC through a new opt-in beta setting, a feature intended to increase frame rates

As part of our Gates of Oblivion year-long storyline, the Blackwood Chapter tasks players with exposing the daedric plots and tyrannical schemes consuming the region. Discover the connection of these plots to the Prince of Destruction and his dreadful plans for Tamriel. Available now, Blackwood is a standalone story, its events further the overall Gates of Oblivion narrative that will conclude later in 2021.

Players can purchase the Waking Flame game pack through the in-game Crown Store and is included for all who subscribe to ESO Plus. The new DLC is available now on PC/MAC and Stadia, and will launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 on September 8.
