The Elder Scrolls Online: Waking Flame, will not be released on consoles at the same time as PC.

The next DLC game pack for ESO is Waking Flame, the third part in the Gates of Oblivion year-long storyline. It follows on directly from The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood. The DLC brings with it two new dungeons for players to battle through, along with some new armor sets and some quality of life improvements.

While PC, Mac, and Stadia players can look forward to the new DLC from today, console players have to wait a little bit longer before they can take on the new challenges.

The console release for The Elder Scrolls Online: Waking Flame has been pushed back to Sept. 8. This release date change affects anyone looking to play on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 consoles. Originally, the console version was due to launch on Aug. 31 but has now been pushed back by an additional week.

When Does ESO: Waking Flame Release on Console?

The decision to delay the console release to Sept. 8 was down to the developers wishing to ensure that they publish a more stable version. This delay allows ZeniMax to manage any additional fixes that might be needed on console before the content launches. While delays can seem a bit frustrating for fans, when it comes to MMOs like ESO, it's better for developers to have the time to focus on the individual releases.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Waking Flame releases on consoles on Sept. 8. The DLC will be available to purchase via the in-game Crown Store or can be unlocked as part of an active ESO Plus membership.
