In the E3 2018 the developers of The Elder Scrolls franchise, Bethesda released a very small teaser to the upcoming Elders Scrolls 6, and since then the Elder Scrolls lovers are waiting for any confirmed news on Elder Scrolls 6 release. The less than minute lasting teaser was just a glimpse of the game artworks and no date or confirmed details about the story or location have been revealed. But, it confirmed the Elder Scrolls 6 project, though Bethesda had a couple of other projects like Fallout 76 and Starfield ongoing. As we know the Elder Scrolls V was a huge success in terms of copies purchased, financial business, player reviews, and critical acclamation. The game was also a dish for all the plates as the Elder Scrolls V was released on Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and on 3D Virtual Reality. Though there is not much information available on the net about the Elder Scrolls 6 project, the fans are being released and waiting for another successful installment of the Elder Scrolls.
So, in this article, we are going to summarize all the details, confirmed news, and rumors we know about Elder Scrolls VI.
Elder Scrolls 6 Release Date
There is no confirmed release date for the Elder scrolls 6 yet, and I know most of you are not surprised to know that. Bethesda has announced already that their new venture on Space Exploration game, Starfield will be releasing before the Elder Scrolls 6 and the Starfield itself does not have any confirmed release date yet. At E3 2019 when IGN asked Bethesda head, Todd Howard, about the Elder Scrolls 6 project, he answered every one to be very patient about the game. Also, Bethesda officially tweeted on the E3 2020 cancellation topic, that they are not able to fulfill anyone’s expectation in this year. So, it is confirmed that you are not going to hear about any confirmed release date for Elder Scrolls 6 soon enough.
According to the present Covid-19 pandemic scenario, all the game and movie releases are being delayed one by one. So, if I make a wild guess then we are not going to have the elder Scrolls 6 before 2022 for sure, considering Starlight released before that.
Elder Scrolls 6 teaser Trailer Breakdown
Here is the link for the official Elder Scrolls 6 Teaser trailer below;
The trailer is just 36 Seconds long, and it shows almost nothing about the game, not even a confirmed title was announced in the trailer. The music used in the trailer is not anything new but the familiar theme music of past Elder Scrolls installments. A sweep shot across some mountains accompanied by a sea by the other side has been shown in the trailer, which is not good enough to guess about the location at all. But, of course, due to being one of the best pulse pumping Open World RPG franchise, even this small enough trailer is able to lit the hope of playing another beautiful RPG Game into the minds of the fans.
Elder Scrolls VI Location Speculation
As we all know that Elder Scrolls games take place on a fictional mythical Continent of Tamriel, and in the last major installments each game was based on one of the nations in the Tamriel. We have seen Morrowind in The Elder Scrolls III, Cyrodill in the Elder Scrolls IV, and the famous Skyrim in The Elder Scrolls V. Now we also know there no game already been placed on the nations of Valenwood or Black Marsh or Black Rock. Valenwood is the home for the Wood Elves, the Black Marsh is inhabited by the Argonian race and the Black Rock is dwelled by mage-centric Bretons. Also, there is another known nation called Hammerfell, where the warrior-like Redguards live. As the teaser has shown vast mountains beside the sea, thus, the game could take place on Black Rock or at Hammerfell according to most of the speculations. Also, some speculators say that the game of Elder Scrolls VI is going to take place around multiple nations in the continent, hence there is no other title for the game, unlike all other previous installments.
Elder Scrolls VI Gameplay and Graphics Details
As no gameplay trailer or graphics showcasing have taken place, but we can be sure that the Elder Scrolls VI going to feature cutting edge graphics with worthy gameplay. For better understanding, you can play the Skyrim once again, and this time the gameplay is going to be even better for sure. While talking about the graphics you can check out the Elder Scrolls Online gameplay videos on YouTube if you haven’t played it yet. The graphics standard of Elder Scrolls Online was a 2014 standard, so at 2022 standard with the advanced Ray-tracing technology in the market and the Nvidia RTX GPU in the trend, you can expect a mesmerizing graphical quality from the game.
Elder Scrolls VI Mods, DLCs and Support
In this present era, a game like Elder Scrolls is surely going to be VR supported, as we can see it from the Skyrim already. If that is is going to be then Elder Scrolls VI would become the best VR supported game till date for sure. This time the fans would be expecting the support of VR Headphones as well.
As all the previous Elder Scrolls installments had multiple mods and DLCs we can expect the same from Elder Scrolls VI also. These Mods and DLC are actually very good for marketing and revenue as well. But, we can not speculate about the contents mods and DLC, until we get to know more about the game’s storyline. So, it is a topic to be discussed later on.
Of Course Elder Scrolls VI is going to be a PS5 and Xbox Series X supported game and we can expect the game to be supported by PS4 and Xbox One X as well. But the Support for PS3 and Xbox 360 won’t be there for sure. The game will also be supported by Nintendo Switch 2 also. Also, people are expecting some Online Roleplay Server content (GTA V RP server type) from Elder Scrolls VI, as it would a perfect fit for the game’s platform and it would be fun to play.
That’s all I know till date about the Elder Scrolls VI, and all the speculations I have discussed are based on various logic only, so most of them may prove to be false. But as gamers we like to talk about such things ain’t it? I have huge expectation from the game as well, I will be writing more on this topic as soon as I pick up some new news on this topic. Bye for now.
