Is The Elder Scrolls 6 officially confirmed by Bethesda?
Although many details about the game have not been clarified yet, we are sure that The Elder Scrolls 6 is being officially developed. The game was announced to the players by the end of E3 2018. You can watch the The Elder Scrolls IV trailer below, which caused great excitement in the hall. Although it does not give much detail about the game, the game was announced with a land from the Elder Scrolls open world.
As you all know, the previous game of the series, Skyrim, was released on 11.11.2011 and it has become a successful game that has been played for many years and is still being played.
Why did it take so long? What has Bethesda done during this time?
This success also produced good results for the producer company, while also causing pressure. Now Bethesda had to produce games that were as good as Skyrim.
There are 6 years between The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall and III: Morrovind, and only 4 years between Morrovind and the 4th game Oblivion. 5 years after Oblivion, Skyrim, the last game of the series, met with the players. About 9 years have passed since Skyrim’s coming out. So what was Bethesda doing after Skyrim?
-> In 2015, 4 years after Skyrim, they appeared before the players with FallOut 4.
-> In 2016, Skyrim Special Edition after 1st year,
-> In 2017, FallOut 4 VR and Skyrim VR in 2017 after 1 year,
-> In 2018, FallOut 76 came out after 1 year,
and mobile games in between these years.
As you can see, Bethesda has only made efforts on FallOut 4 within these 9 years, and it seems that other games were just adaptations to other platforms, also there is no need to talk about FallOut 76. The sad news is that their next project seems to be Starfield, not The Elder Scrolls IV. After the FallOut 76 failure, perhaps time is needed to go over all the mistakes. Bethesda takes this process so long is because The Elder Scrolls name is too valuable to be put at risk.
Did Bethesda feature the game in E3 2019 or any news in 2020?
Bethesda did not feature the game in E3 2019 and will not talk about The Elder Scrolls IV in 2020 as well. It is interesting that they do not even want to be asked any questions about this topic.
Pete Hines who is the vice president of Bethesda Softworks’ public relations and marketing department, mentioned that even we’ve got years to talk about the game with more clear details, not the releasing of the game.
Does Bethesda want to change the game engine for The Elder Scrolls IV?
Todd Howard says the following for game engines: “I think the word ‘game engine’ is confused by those who don’t produce games. They see the game engine as ‘one thing’. We see it as a technology. There are many parts change with the game. ”
For all these reasons, the pieces has changed in the ‘Creation Engine’ used by Bethesda in the production of The Elder Scrolls and Fallout games. Todd Howard says in an interview that they’ve made a lot of changes to the Creation Engine for FallOut 76. In the same interview, he adds that when they reached The Elder Scrolls 6, they changed much more.
In short, The Elder Scrolls 6 uses the same game engine as Skyrim, but this same engine has new rendering technology, new lighting, new landscape systems and new animations. These innovations are just what Bethesda has clearly said, we will most probably see more inovations when it released.
When will The Elder Scrolls 6 be released by Bethesda?
A source famous for its leaks stated that the game will be released in the last quarter of 2024 and the game’s first DLC, Stros M’Kai. They also stated that the DLC package is related to the ship mechanics in the game. We also looked at other leaks that came in, and when we look at the general estimates of the game’s release date, everything seems to be.
Where does The Elder Scrolls 6 take place, how will the game be?
Very important information has emerged about Bethesda’s new game, The Elder Scrolls VI, which players are eagerly awaiting. A source famous for its leaks provided important information about the game’s gameplay and release date.
Bethesda, one of the most popular game companies in the game world, fell silent after the announcement of The Elder Scrolls VI, but the rumors and rumors about the game never stop. Rumors about the new Elder Scrolls game included information such as possible location and game settings.
The Elder Scrolls VI, claimed to be called Redfall, will take place in High Rock and Hammerfall 6 years after the events in Skyrim. The vast majority of regions in the game will have a dense population and Daggerfall will be the largest city Bethesda has ever formed. The source claimed that Bethesda made notes on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on how densely populated cities would be.
Many of these busy areas will be at war with each other. Bethesda plans to take advantage of next-generation hardware to create massive battles. According to the source, there will even be a main mission where hundreds of Orcs will attack and plunder a city called Jehanna.
Another piece of information the source reported was about ships and cruises. Players will be able to buy and customize a ship, as they will travel multiple times in The Elder Scrolls VI. NPCs can be assigned to these ships, which will have a wide scale from boat to pirate ships.
These are the details that have emerged about the game so far, it is clear that Bethesda will not talk about the game for a few years. We hope the game’s destiny isn’t like Half-Life 3.
Which platforms will The Elder Scrolls IV be on? Will it come only for new consoles and PC?
Considering the release year of the game, it would not be wrong to say that the game will come to the next generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and also PC. Also, since we are in the transition period, the game is likely to come to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
