Earlier today, Bethesda announced that Doom Eternal and Elder Scrolls Online will be getting free next-gen port upgrades. The rip and tear shooter has been keeping many FPS fans busy and the enjoyable MMO has been making a good name for itself over the years.

If you bought either of the two games on either a PS4 or Xbox One, you are eligible for the next-gen ports of these games for the PS5 or Xbox Series X, depending on what platform you currently own the games on. However, there isn't any confirmation whether or not the upgraded version of these games will be available at the time of the consoles' launch dates, which is something to bear in mind.

If you have been thinking about playing either of these games, it's a good time to grab a copy of these both right now, because we aren't sure whether or not there will be a price difference between the current-gen and next-gen titles. Besides, both of these games are really good and worth your time anyway.

Bethesda also stated that the company is working to enable backwards compatibility for both of these games. Backwards compatibility will allow you to run the current-gen version of these games on next-gen consoles. However, you'll have to wait until the version with updated visuals becomes available to get the next-gen experience.

Although Doom Eternal and Elder Scrolls Online are the first two games receiving next-gen ports, Bethesda also said in a recent blog post that it is "committed to offer free upgrades for current-generation console owners of existing Bethesda titles we bring forward." So, if the studio ends up porting Skyrim or Fallout 76, they will be free next-gen upgrades for users who already own the games on current-gen consoles.

The studio also said that more information, such as the release date for each of these games and a list of next-gen enhancements, will be announced in the upcoming weeks and months.
