Elder Scrolls 6. What will it be like?

Are you ready to spend rounds of sleepless nights on another swashbuckling role-playing game? The thing is, we’re not talking about just any RPG here – it’s the much-awaited Elder Scrolls 6. We know you can’t wait for the next elder scrolls game to come out and we’re as excited as well.

What will it be about, where will it take place, and how will it connect with the story of previous installments, are the questions running though everyone’s mind. More questions are being raised but answers are still scarce.

So what now? Is there truth to this or it’s just another product of fans’ wishful thinking? Whichever it is, we’re sure that even the slightest hint of confirmation from Bethesda is sure to make fans across the world hysterical.

All we can do for now is hope, pray, and try to sleep our days until its release. To give you another thing to do, other than checking Bethesda’s official site for news every 5 minutes, join us in analyzing what the next Elder Scrolls game will bring to the table to keep its hold on the RPG throne.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

Elder Scrolls: Arena. We’re witnessing the birth of a legend.

The first Elder Scrolls game where it all began, The Elder Scrolls: Arena, came out in 1994. It was meant to be a team tournament, with gladiator-like combat concept and never an RPG. But as the developers build the game, the tournament idea was dropped and it became the RPG game we all know of.

Despite the bugs and taxing machine requirements, it became a cult hit for its originality, potential, and wide room for improvement.

Daggerfall in 1996 came out as the second installment of the franchise, improving the role-playing and leveling system from Arena. It was still quite buggy when it was released but the gaming community supported the game by releasing unofficial patches, quest fixes, and even language translations. It still did not achieve widespread popularity but it’s already gaining ground as seen from the love fans gave it.

Morrowind. Graphics-wise, it’s leaps and bounds from Daggerfall and Arena.

Learning from their past mistakes, Bethesda took their time revitalizing the company and improving their technical capacities. The result is the third major installment in 2002, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, which was well-received and cemented the franchise’s spot in the action-RPG genre. It finally achieved how its developers projected the game should be.

Further improving Morrowind, Oblivion raised the bar high for graphics quality.

Oblivion in 2006 garnered even more fans and received critical acclaim from critics worldwide. Its polished gameplay, much-improved graphics, uniquely varied environments, and expansive questing, earned it several game of the year awards. It was the standard at that time and it still is considered to be one of the best RPG ever made. Its fame was eclipsed only when Skyrim came out in 2011, with even more impressive graphics, vast open world mechanics, and more freedom in character creation.

Skyrim will remain as one of the most recognized action RPG of its generation.

Throughout twenty years since its inception, the franchise keeps getting better and better, picking up on their shortcomings and strengthening their best points. Analyzing this pattern, we’re anticipating Elder Scrolls 6 will be stellar.
