E3 2018 was full of exciting announcements, predicting a great year ahead for gamers. Apart from long-awaited titles, gaming enthusiasts were surprised by certain confirmations they definitely didn’t expect. When it came to Bethesda games, everyone was expecting news on Starfield, but the game director made everyone a pleasant surprise. After a long wait, the studio has finally confirmed an upcoming The Elder Scrolls VI game.
Bethesda teases a new Elder Scrolls game
The latest game in The Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim, was released in 2011. Since then, fans have been waiting for a new title, but Bethesda kept silent about it. Therefore, they didn’t expect such a surprise during E3. However, while talking about the release of Starfield, Todd Howard, the game director, offered the info everyone was hoping for. The Elder Scrolls VI is in the making.
However, Bethesda kept teasing its fans. The studio released a teaser trailer for The Elder Scrolls VI that lasts only 37 seconds, and it starts with an aerial view of some mountains surrounded by fog. This whole trailer is really mysterious, as it only reveals a vast landscape. As the frame zoom in on mountains, grass, and then on a castle, the logo of the game appears, accompanied by the popular theme song of the series.
Bethesda has been secretive with the details on The Elder Scrolls VI
Unfortunately, this is what we get at the moment from The Elder Scrolls VI. Bethesda revealed nothing regarding characters, gameplay, or even story. However, Todd Howard gave us a small hint. We cannot say how the game mechanics will work, but the game will require plenty of resources. Those resources provided by PS4 or Xbox One won’t be enough, so the game will probably appear after new consoles are officially out.
Therefore, Bethesda didn’t offer an official release date either. One thing is clear, that Starfield will be released before The Elder Scrolls VI. Since this game is also created for new generation gaming equipment, we’ll still wait a few more years until we can play the exciting game.
