    So rumour has it that Elder Scrolls 6 is going to be announced at the E3 Expo in June. I only heard this for the first time today, and damn near soiled myself with excitement! Has anyone else heard much about it?

    i heard another rumour about fallout 4 at E3, but i dunno.. could be anything at this stage, and i doubt bethesda will quash any rumours before then either.. gits!


  • Administrators, Business & Finance Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 16,913 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭Toots


    I'd love if elder scrolls 6 went back to Cyrodiil. I keep imagining going around the imperial city with Skyrim-or-better quality graphics and UI and just drooling. Or if they did some sort of awesome set-up sort of like ESO in that you can go to all of tamriel, but with a better storyline and it's not an MMO.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,737 ✭✭✭✭degrassinoel


    Yeah, ESO seemed like a step backwards after skyrim - even co-op with the skyrim engine and level of detail would have worked so much better than the mmo

    Ah, sure we can hope anyway :)

    Alas I fear we would be disappointed!

    I have absolutely no patience!! :o I'll probably be checking online every day in the hopes that something gets leaked! I hope whatever it is, that it's as mod-able as Skyrim.

    I would love a game set in Elsweyr (sp?) I am a big fan of khajiits.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,737 ✭✭✭✭degrassinoel


    i think it's actually just called Elsewhere :D mad cats :)

    That's what too much Skooma does to you!

    A bit of googling has given a few sources reporting that the announcement will be in June of this year for a release date of March 2016

    After that it gets a bit murky with talk of different settings, possibly multiple settings for the game. One interesting one is Argonia, better pack my wellies


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,303 ✭✭✭Temptamperu


    I hate argonians, cant trust them as far as ye can throw them.


  • Administrators, Business & Finance Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 16,913 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭Toots


    I'd say you're right at home in Stormcloak held Windhelm so!!

    Bethesda is one of the big 3 developers appearing at E3 2015. It's clear that they will announce a new game, either Fallout 3 or Elder Scrolls VI. There's an already announced Wolfenstein game that is making an appearance as well.

    I wonder what are the chances that Fallout 3 and Elder Scrolls VI are announced at E3?

    I really love this series, especially Oblivion (best lore) and Morrowind. The main quest of Skyrim was so boring I didn't even go to the midway point, but I enjoyed most of the game.


    I love killing off all the vampires and the Dark Brotherhood. Would like to see more time devoted to both in the next game.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,246 ✭✭✭✭Riamfada


    With the new Fallout does this dampen theories of an TES VI being launched?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,737 ✭✭✭✭degrassinoel


    not for me, if Fallout 4 is successful (and it will be) it just means bethesda has the development cash for a new elder scrolls title. They may have one underway as it is, but tbh any open world rpg they do is something i'm interested in :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,135 ✭✭✭fifth


    The development cycles on TES games are usually really long in excess of five years, so I would hope that they're working on TES 6 at this stage!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,930 ✭✭✭paulbok


    Bethesda briefing tomorrow (well 3pm our time) at E3 for upcoming releases. Image on the link has TES imagery but no mention of whats coming.

    could be just a brand recognition thing, but sure i'll remain hopeful anyway


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 3,182 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dr Bob


    The rumour is a HD version of Skyrim for the Xb1/ps4 but I'd love if it was a hint of a new game..

    I heard the same thing. Also with mod support, which would be pretty awesome for console gamers.

    But yeah, hopefully they also talk about ESVI.

    So this is it, remastered special edition at end of October. Selected mods allowed on consoles, ps4 and xbox
    Free to pc users with all dcs.

    Any word on whether old saves will work on the HD console version? Would love to play this again, but don't think I could face going back to the beginning.

    Hopefully mod support on pc is unaffected, but there could be issues with mods looking rough on the remastered vanilla graphics. (that is what remastered will mean?)


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,737 ✭✭✭✭degrassinoel


    well tbh you can already play skyrim with an equal measure of what's being promised in the remaster through the current workshop mods on steam. What the free pc version is going to do is change/update the textures etc.. so that it's similar to the ones you see in fallout4 - godrays and such. So the likes of a save should still be fine regardless.

    The only thing i can see it being a benefit for pc, is that it'll probably run better because it wont have a dozen other mods running at the same time. That being said, even when i run skyrim with no mods it still crashes randomly anyway, i'm not counting on them fixing stuff like that ever tbh


  • Administrators, Business & Finance Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 16,913 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭Toots


    I'm kinda disappointed by that. I wish they'd added in another DLC for Skyrim or something.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,930 ✭✭✭paulbok


    So nothing of note this year, surely they have to announce it next year?
