Probably one of the most well-known RPG games of all time, Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls is a series of action video games. Debuting with Elder Scrolls: Arena in 1994, it is also one of the longest-running franchise in the genre. The game series itself is massively spread out. Apart from five main entries into the franchise, multiple spin-offs and expansions are also included in the series. Releasing in 2011, Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is the most recent entry to the main continuity of the franchise.
Since its debut, Elder Scrolls games have been released in multiple platforms. This includes Windows, Xbox, Playstation and Nintendo. Furthermore, games for Android and IOS have also released. The game series has massive appeal among gamers and has gained very positive reviews from critics as well. It has won multiple Game of The Year awards. Additionally, Elder Scrolls has been a huge commercial success for Bethesda as well. Reports suggest that the franchise has sold 58 million copies worldwide to date.
Elder Scrolls 6: Release date
Though the franchise has received new entries as recently as this year, no main entry has released in a while. And fans have been quite vocal with their demand for the sixth entry. In June 2018, Bethesda fulfilled fans’ wishes by announcing Elder Scrolls 6. However, nothing else has been confirmed about the game.
Bethesda is currently busy with their new project ‘Starfield,’ and it is expected that Elder Scrolls will release after that. In May this year, Bethesda Vice-President Peter Hines confirmed the same. This means that Elder Scrolls 6 won’t release anytime soon. Moreover, it may take years to get any official information about the upcoming game. Although we assume that the game will be released on the new generations of consoles along with PC.
Elder Scrolls 6: Characters
Bethesda hasn’t revealed anything about the game. So, we know nothing about the characters featuring in it. Furthermore, it is too early to even speculate about the characters. Stay tuned for further updates on this matter.
Elder Scrolls 6: Gameplay
As mentioned before, Elder Scrolls is an action-adventure RPG. So, the sixth iteration will have the common elements of an RPG game. Furthermore, the trademark features of open-world, non-linear gameplay are also expected to be seen in the upcoming game. However, we’re also hoping to see major improvements from the previous gameplay mechanics.
Furthermore, reports suggest that the game will use the ‘creation engine’ from the previous games. But, new animations, combat system and landscape renderer will feature in Elder Scrolls 6.
Elder Scrolls 6: Expected plot
As of now, we don’t know the story of the upcoming game. However, we do know that Elder Scrolls 6 will be set in the continent of Tamriel. But, as to the setting where the story takes place, we are in the dark. Though fans haven’t stopped speculating about it. Currently, there are rumours about the game being set in High Rock, Elsweyr, Black Marsh or Valenwood. Still, we are waiting for an official word on this.
Elder Scrolls 6: Title
Ever since the new game was teased, fans have been trying to guess the title. But recently, there have been strong rumours about the possible title of the game. According to speculations, the upcoming game could be titled Elder Scrolls 6: Redfall. Gamers have theorised that the name could refer to a deadly plague that exists in the in-game universe. Though Bethesda is yet to comment on it.
