Bethesda Looks to Pattern ‘Elder Scrolls 6’ on Morrowind

Developer Bethesda is reportedly planning to pattern the upcoming open-world fantasy role-playing video game “Elder Scrolls 6” to the third installment of the franchise titled “Elder Scrolls III; Morrowind,” reports Moviepilot.

While the fifth installment of the video game franchise titled “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” is regarded as one of the greatest games ever developed, it is not as engaging however as the “Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.”

Skyrim also lacks immersion for its gameplay which makes it difficult for players to really comprehend and perhaps master if they’re up to it. Some gamers believe that Skyrim was designed to have players solely engaging with its missions like a whole new life altogether.

But a number of gamers are still vouching for “Elder Scrolls 6” to be patterned more on Skyrim. One gamer cited that while Skyrim offered gamers an opportunity to get a job, join a guild, wander in the countryside, its lack of immersion did the video game in.

Although at this point, since no official statement or confirmation is being made by Bethesda, everything is mere speculations for now.

One gamer suggested a number of viable ways to really improve the game further and add on to the legacy and legend of the “Elder Scrolls” franchise.

First of the bat is the limitless and enormous world that gamers have to contend with. Bethesda should work on ensuring that the world should be within manageable confines to make the players feel that they are not just aimlessly wandering around.
