Virtual reality doesn't seem to be as much of a hot topic these days, especially compared to just a couple of years ago, when Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR all launched within six months of each other.

In a world of countless RPGs, you might be worried that the genre is becoming stale over time.

At E3 2018, Bethesda announced that The Elder Scrolls: Legends would be coming to home consoles in an effort to expand its audience. When speaking to Game Informer on this topic, Pete Hines of Bethesda confirmed the game would be cross-platform for all systems.
