Since the new patch me and at least couple of friends have lost HDR? Something we are missing or is it just broken?

    I hope it isn't broke. Looking forward to playing when I get off work.

    Confused here.

    I also have an XBX and I've never seen this HDR setting. Instead, I enabled HDR on my TV, which modified the game's color depth.

    Since HDR is a technology, I just assumed the TV took care of it.

    What does the game actually do when this "HDR" option is set?

    You have to setup your Xbox for HDR first, then it will automatically switch to HDR when playing an HDR enabled game or video.

    Having same problem on Xbox X. Everything is grey and gloomy. The dull color of Tamriel is making me depressed. I can't even bring myself to play ESO until this is fixed, let alone invest any money into buying DLC.

    Do you have a 4K HDR10 capable TV with the HDR turned on?

    Basically we are seeing 4K, but not HDR bright colours

    I don't recall making any changes to the console or in the game. On my Samsung, I enabled HDR, then adjusted based on what the game displayed. I could be mistaken. It's been a while.

    Regardless, the fact remains the game's HDR is broken on console.

    Just posted a reply in a different thread, but just so you all are aware too, the change to HDR was intended to aid in some overly-saturated assets found throughout the game but it had some unintended consequences. We’re continuing to evaluate the changes that were made in today’s patch, and will keep everyone updated on the status.

    If it was intended then why is there no mention of it in any patch notes? Why has PC not had any problems with HDR? I will be canceling my ESO+ auto renewal until this is resolved.

    The missing patch note was completely my fault. It was sent to me, and I forgot to add it. My apologies.

    Thanks for the reply to this @ZOS_GinaBruno appriciate how manic it gets for you post patch.

    So i'm reading that the change was intended, but didnt intend to fully knock HDR off for PS4 / X1X, just changed something to help

    Or do you mean they intended to knock out HDR, and now you are evaluating the gain from doing so? As the later is a quite a step!

    This is more then a tweak, HDR slider no longer has any affect on my OLED tv, HDR is disabled and a side by side with a non HDR tv on the same system looks identical. Please fix this.

    Maybe fix them oversaturated assets, instead of shutting the whole HDR thingie off? Seems a little radical.

    It's just so weird, it's like there's zero testing done for this stuff sometimes. If there was a tweak to HDR, OK that's cool, but all you have to do is launch the game on a Pro or X and the second you're at your character select screen you can see it's been completely disabled. Yet it gets pushed out anyways.

    This actually baffles me too, everywhere I ever worked - mechanic, graphic designer, web design, printing - people always test/check things before sending it off to a client. Launching a new website without even trying it, who would? Releasing a nearly 50gb update for a game, no testing? Yeah right. I'm staring ti understand now...

    I'm still not clear if intention is to shut off HDR, or something else was intended and it shut HDR off unintentionally and they gunna fix it.

    I wonder if anyone at ZOS even realizes that the "HDR Brightness" slider under Video does absolutely nothing at all.... lol

    I actually really like it. It makes the game seem more realistic and certain effects like fire appear a lot more life like. It took a few hours to get used to but it is an improvement imo
