Following the indirect admission of Bethesda Studios that the earliest that the highly-anticipated role-playing game “The Elder Scrolls 6” could come out is in 2019, enthusiasm has somehow lessened for the game.
But that did not stop speculations from swirling online on what the game has in store for gamers when it finally comes out in the gaming consoles and the PC a few years down the road.
There are now reports saying that the game could come out with support for virtual reality (VR) but since VR headset sales appear to be unstable at this time, Bethesda might just forego the feature and focus on other aspects of the game.
Some critics and gamers believe that one feature that Bethesda Studios may consider incorporating on the “The Elder Scrolls 6” is the inclusion of factions and guilds on its online multiplayer mode, which has proven to keep players glued from most massively multiplayer online role-playing games or MMORPGs, notes Game & Guide.
The rumors are also saying that the addition of guild management on “The Elder Scrolls 6” shall give players the power to manage their guilds.
It is one feature that has been asked by gamers of “Fallout 4” and if Bethesda would give in and apply it to “The Elder Scrolls 6,” it would certainly attract more gamers to the game.
There are also reports saying that a mobile edition of “The Elder Scrolls 6” could also be considered by Bethesda Studios, apparently in light of the recent success of “Pokemon Go.”
Bethesda Studios is no longer new to such strategy as it also launched the mobile game “Fallout Shelter” to further hype up its high-profile role-playing game “Fallout 4” when it was released to the consoles and the PC in November last year.
Quenching the gamers’ thirst
As it understands that the 2019 release date for “The Elder Scrolls 6” may be a little too much and too far off for most gamers, Bethesda announced recently that it shall be releasing the HD remastered version of “The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim” on October 28.
Owners of the game on PC will get an upgrade for free while gamers on the Xbox One, the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 4, and the PlayStation 3 shall have to spend $60 to avail of it.
Reports are saying also that once the special edition of the fifth installment of “The Elder Scrolls” franchise is released late next month, Bethesda shall also kickstart the development of “The Elder Scrolls 6.”
Bethesda Vice President for Marketing Pete Hines announced during the Gamescom 2016 held last month in Cologne, Germany that the company is working on two big projects, with “The Elder Scrolls 6” being the third.
The reports saying that Bethesda is working on two projects has spawned a lot of speculations among the fans. It is rumored that the company is working on a spin-off of “The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim” or a huge “Fallout 4” DLC. Either way, fans are hoping that the company has at least decided to work on “The Elder Scrolls 6.”
Possible storyline for ‘The Elder Scrolls 6’
It could be recalled that the plotline of “The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim” occurs 200 years after the events of “The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion.” It is clear from such premise that there is more than enough room to create a spin-off series or even “The Elder Scrolls 6” from it.
The story of the upcoming game could cover the events that led to the origin of Alduin and the dragons that attacked Skyrim. It might also throw some light on why he is prophesied to destroy the races of Men and Mer.
It is also possible that “The Elder Scrolls 6” may tackle the backstory of the relationships between the Dragonborn and the Blades.
