So I'm wondering if this game will work for the Nvidia Shield, I'm planning to get one this summer and would love to be able to play TESO throughout my entire house xD. I think it would work really well too since TESO doesn't have complicated controls and is designed to work on PS4/Xbone also so yeah. What do you guys think?

I´m not certain whether TESO will be playable on a Hand Held. They announced it for PC, Mac, XBox1 and PS4. Of These you can be certain that they come. Everything else they didn´t announce and therefor it will most likely not be there.

I too am curious about this. Bump for justice

@Idriar the shield isn't really a handheld. it only plays games on your pc but is controlled and displayed through the handheld device, while the pc does all the processing. I imagine at a minimum, you still should be able to use the shield through an emulator as a gamepad, but idk how that would affect the display or if the display would even work this way.

I'd imagine it would work perfectly fine, since it will be designed for controllers also. The thing I'm more wondering is will TESO/Nvidia push to have it on the Shield. I'm hoping they will, I can just imagine it now, playing TESO while sitting on the toiled xD.

Hahah that would be great, who doesn't use their cell phone while on the pot these days? Might as well be playing TESO.

You have to keep in mind though that as of right now ESO on PC/Mac won't have native controller support, so it will have to be used through an emulator. So i'm not sure if the display will work properly through an emulator

But yes, sitting on the can whilst gaming is the dream :)

Ah ha, so crapping on the throne and crapping on your enemies at the same time.

ESO on PC should by all means have support for controllers, all you have to do is plug in a USB controller and change your button config to suit, I am sure they will allow that.

I would love for TESO to be on the Shield, since Ive considered purchasing one myself, it would be a great convenience.
However I would want the Shield to connect to console servers, particularly the Xbone ones, as it runs more similar to that than PS4.

But at the same time, it is basically a laptop in the shape of a controller.

Have hope, Skyrim is Shield compatible and I would hate to lose the market for no good reason. Perhaps it might be worth a while shooting an email to Zenimax.

except they won't. You have to use an emulator for the pc/mac version. Source

See this is one thing I don't understand do you guys? Can someone please explain to me the benefit of not having native controller support for the PC version? They already have to make controller support for the PS4/Xbone, I don't get it why not throw in a few seconds of their time to easily put controller support on the PC version as well. Also yeah Skyrim on the Shield is support so why wouldn't TESO? I'm hoping it is supported, I really am.
