ESO update 2.20 is now available on consoles as the maintenance finished later last night.

If you can’t use mods, the only way to keep exploring and spending time in The Elder Scrolls universe is its Online version, which hopefully receives continuous support from developers.

Last night, players couldn’t connect to the online servers in the console version of The Elder Scrolls Online due to maintenance. Soon after the servers came back online, ZeniMax shared the new patch notes for ESO update 2.20/1.24.5, which only includes hotfixes.

This new update wipes out a bunch of issues in the communication tools, whether it is text or voice chat. Also, a few bugs have been fixed in Crown Store and UI.
