The Elder Scrolls VI: ???

  • This is a broad discussion about anything having to do with upcoming games in TES.

      Loading editor
    • To get things started, I would like to give two possible story lines that I could see happen:

      1: After the Elder Scrolls were scattered all throughout Tamriel, the next game could be like Arena and take place all across Tamriel. The main quest could delve into what the Elder Scrolls actually are and what is their true purpose.

      2: This one might be more probable, but it might take time to explain. First off, i want to say that I think it would be in Hammerfell. Not because I extremely like Hammerfell, but it seems to be the focal point of the next game. In Oblivion, I distinctly remember hearing many Nords say "I'm from Skyrim" and just an overall impression that was more profound than any other province besides Cyrodiil. Also, the Great War seems to be fought harshly in Hammerfell, what with the Thalmor taking territory there and some Alik'r warriors/Redguard woman in Whiterun saying the resistance to the Thalmor is "alive and well in Hammerfell". 

      The story behind this game in Hammerfell would be the return of the Dwemer. I have a theory behind this as well. There are Dwarven ruins in mainly 3 provinces, Morrowind, Skyrim, and, you guessed it, Hammerfell. This is where they chose to make their home, throwing Volendrung i believe(or some other hammer maybe) and moving to where it landed, thus naming that province "Hammerfell", literaly where the "Hammer Fell".

      One last thing is that in the first part of the game, when you encounter Frostbite Spiders for the first time, Hadvar says "What next, giant snakes?" And I think they might do that n the Alik'r desert.

    • I think that would be cool, but I'm out of creative ideas for now. When I come up with something, I'll post.

    • I do not think Hammerfell will be the next location, as they have a game set there already (though it was not very well received). I think they will try to cover all the places then redo them all together like as they did in Arena. As for the next one, I think it will be one of two places. First off Black Marsh as they did take time to develop the Argonians and setup some good backstory such as:

      ·  The saxheel jewelers.

      ·  Shadowscales, that would setup a Dark Brotherhood faction quest to establish them again.

      ·   The Argonians being a formidable force to stand against the Thalmor .

      The second one I think would be possible would be a combination of Valenwood and Elsweyr. This could function like the civil war with the Thalmor starting to fracture due to the Dragonborn strengthening the Empire (either by helping the Empire or Stormcloaks via the civil war quest). Having two countries to go back and forth would spark an interest (though it would not really be any different than any DLC where you go to a new land). It would still be a great feature that I am sure they would ride into the ground with marketing. They have already established a bit on those two places.

      No matter what they decide though it will be a long wait as the next game will most likely be Fallout then another 3 years after that to get to the new Elder Scrolls. Though I still hold to my idea that they will cover each of the provinces, and then do a “Final” one that lets you experience all of them together.

    • I think it would be awesome if they added the bigger and badder lich king armor set. Also it would be awesome if you could travel beyond more than one providence in tamriel. It would be awesome if the lich king was part of the main quests either you chose to make friends with him of chose to fight against him with a group (some kind of guild). bringing back the dark brotherhood would be pretty cool also, if you chose the lich kings side at the end if you unlock the highest level of smithing and you compete that questline you get to craft the armor it would be cool like my profile picture. And there could be a new emperor of tamriel so you could choses his side or the lich kings. It would be cool to be a questline of the nords attaking elswr and you must help the khajiit and defeat the nords. I hope this showed you something.

    • I agree with lich king. it also would be cool to add a soulforage and skyforage again

    • Not to sound a bore, but while speculation can be fascinating, anything could really be included in TES VI, and new lore will likely be added to back it up. I doubt any of us could have predicted the events of Oblivion after Morrowind, for example, or the events of Skyrim. That said, I would quite like to see Hammerfell, and while I like the Summerset Isles, I would rather Bethesda waited for better technology give the province justice. A few points I would make are, however:

      1) We already know what the Elder Scrolls are, and I suppose what their 'purpose' is, but I would say that no everything neccessarily requires a purpose, if not created for a specific reason. 

      2) Unless they chose two smaller provinces like Valenwood and Elsweyr (and even then, I think sticking to one province is best), it is unlikely that Bethesda will include multiple provinces, let along the entire the continent. There is no way we get the detail in each province that we are accustomed to. Even in TESO, the full areas of each province are not accessible, but rather only limited areas. 

      3) Why would the Nords attack Elsweyr? And I think choosing the Emperor's successor is a bit controversial. The Empire does seem to operate under primogeniture, and while we have seen in the past that sometimes 'Might makes Right', I see little point in plunging the Empire into chaos for such a petty issue (comparative to the other events going on).

    • I think it makes the most sense for the next game to be in Valenwood, Hammerfell, or Black Marsh. Although I'd love to Elsweyr, I don't think it'll in the next game. I find the Summurset Isles also unlikely because the next will definitely revolve around the Aldmeri Dominion and unless that game involves destroying the government from it's headquaters, I don't think it's likely. 

      Valenwood would be great because it'll be a great place where we can really see the Dominion in action, seeing their cruelty in new, more political ways. I find Hammerfell as likely as Valenwood, Hammerfell has had to fight off both the Dominion and secceed from the Empire. Hammerfell's storyline would likely involve yet again fighting off the Dominion. Black Marsh is also a good choice for the next game because of how isolated it is from the Empire and the Dominion during the even of Skyrim. Like Hammerfell, Black Marsh secceeded from the Empire and might have fight to fight off the Dominion. They'd also use the Black Marsh game to reveal more about what Black Marsh did to Morrowind.

    • I think Elsweyr would be a really bad location for a main TES title. Khajits can be kind of refreshing and fun when there's a couple of them every here and there. But for the world to be FULL of Khajits, that would be really annoying. I mean imagine Skyrim with every Nord being a Khajit. No fun.


      Oh btw is there a thread dedicated for peoples wishes and ideas for TES VI?

    • Cyrodill,Really?Who the hell is crazy enough to want that?

      We have a game set in Cyrodiil in the xbox360,that still is pretty fresh,it would be a waste to make TES VI on the imperial province.

      Elsweyr is more likely,it has not shown up in any game besides Arena,the Khajiit in Arena were not even cats,they were nords with face-paint,plus in ESO the only area available is a little island,with very small content.There is much more story/content in Skyrim pointing to the Khajiit than to any other race,even though I would hate a game in Elsweyr,it is pretty clear that fanwise,it would make TES players quite happy.

      I myself would choose Summerset,but I would rather wait some years for better technology,for now,I would be pleased with a Argonia(which most likely won't happen) or even an Pyandonea game.

    • I'm pretty sure the Civil War won't effect ES6. More likely, I think they will team up against the Thalmor. They would probably react like this after the main questline (If Season Unending was completed and not skipped over):

      Tullius: Hmm, looks like we actually got something accomplished with the treaty. How about we extend this. Until we're done with a...certain group.

      Ulfric: Finally, something the Sons of Skyrim and the Empire can agree on!


      I think either they would extend the treaty so they can team up against the Thalmor (Maybe the whole AD), or maybe they become full allies (Not to sure about this, though)

      Location, I'm not sure. They got 3 provinces and a whole CONTINENT (Akavir) that could possibly even serve as a spinoff series!


      Gameplay, I hope it could have different weapons types, like Quarterstaves, or Katanas.


      Graphics, Hopefully something like this, but with a lot of settings (INGAME, NOT BEFORE RUNNING).

      Because then you get an unorginal generic plot.  If you tell them what you want you can't be surprised and please, it'll just be to your expectations and won't go above and beyond.

      Regardless, I was kidding.  Bethesda probably doesn't give a manky git what we think.

      (Let's see, Arena came out in 1994.  From there, Daggerfall came out two years later.  After that it took 6 years for Morrowind, only four for Oblivion, and five for Skyrim.  That averages out to about 4 years per release.  So we should be expecting it within the next one-three years.

    • There is no specific time for developing a game like the Elder Scrolls,each one is different,and it will depend on the amount of content.

      Skyrim did not take 5 years from oblivion,it took 3.5 years,that was the development time,the elder scrolls VI's development may not have even started,if it already has,it would only have started some time after the release of the Dragonborn expansion. If TES VI started being developed after the Dragonborn expansion,if it takes as long as Skyrim to be done,then it will only come out around 2016,at the earliest.

      I doubt it. Morrowind was 01/05/02, Oblivion was 20/03/06. Skyrim's 11/11/11 was likely a one-time thing since it's only doable for the first 12 years of a century. It would be interesting if Bethesda started that, though.

    • Personally I think the Next Elder Scrolls Game will take place in 2 Providences, Hammerfell and High Rock, the storyline takes place a mere 50 Years after Skyrim. The Storyline is about the Skyrim civil war which ended 40 years after the end of the game Skyrim resultting in the weakening of the Nords and imperials, in which caused the betrayal of the Thalmor who in 10 years caused them both to become nearly extinct. The Thalmor plan on killing all the human's and attack high rock and hammerfell joins an alliance with high rock. The rasism of the thalmor is Mer>Beast> Man.

    • Set a game in Valenwood. I love your idea Legacyofhades and would like to include that. However the transformation should be animals only, because it would end up pretty broken if you could change from Khajjit to Nord whenever you want.

      And maybe have the game set before the events of Skyrim. Heres and idea... The Empire is weakened after the Oblivion Crisis and many of the province look on hesitantly as they sense weakness. Nords in Skyrim listen to fanatic preachers who want a free Skyrim, Argonians while weakened by the Crisis are confident and the Dunmer seethe with hatred against the Empire. Valenwood is undecided, seeing opportunity but fearing the legions. Meanwhile Hircine, the scourge of the woods comes back to Valenwood as prophecy tells. His aim to unleash the Great Hunt where men become little better than savage beasts. Only one can stand against him though untrained and unready this hero will not stand a chance. The primitive Wood People are the holders of prophecy, only they can decipher it.

      Note that the story is another chosen one but I don't think they'll change soon. The hero doesn't begin as the chosen one but as a prisoner (typical). What do you think?

      Elder Scrolls Online was released on 04/04/2014 Maybe Elder Scrolls VI/6 will be released in 06/06/2016,it is not far fetched,there is no guarantee there will be a Fallout game before a new TES,and since it is one year a half away,and the game is most likely in development already,then I think it's a pretty good date.

      And Medium Armor. It came back for ESO, I'm hoping Bethesda brings it back for the single-player series too.

      As to the Black Marsh setting rumors, I really hope it's true. I hope they don't take the safe and easy route and give us a human province for the third game in a row. Maybe, as some have speculated, it'd take place in several, like in Daggerfall? Say, sections of Hammerfell, Cyrodiil and Valenwood. Who knows. I'd prefer Black Marsh, though.

      Hopefully we'll see at Bethesda's mysterious press conference in June... though that's probably gonna be for Fallout 4. Both being announced is just wishful thinking :P

    • 1. The game will most likely be set in one province, it is extremely unlikely that it would be set in all of Tamriel. If there are multiple provinces, it would only be part of them, like in Daggerfall

      2. There have already been games in Iliac Bay, Hammerfell, Morrowind, Cyrodil, and Skyrim. The next game will most likely be set in Black Marsh, Elsewyr, Valenwood, or the Summer Isles. Possibly Hammerfell, because Daggerfell only kept it along the coast.

      3. In the next game, I hope they have more survival needed, like having a hunger meter, and specific wounds. If someone shoots you with an arrow in your leg, you move slower. Or if you get shot in the face, you automatically die, etc.

      4. Any site or article that says Skyrim sequel, Skyrim 2, or Argonia is probably false. If the next game takes place in Black Marsh, it will be called Black Marsh, not Argonia.

    • A story line that I think would be cool is (i don't like the stormcloaks but think this would be cool) is after the events of skyrim there is still a dovahkiin and ulfric stormcloak has beaten the empire the Thalmor now want to come back to take control and at the same time Ulfric thinks "if we can beat the empire here in skyrim, what stops us from completely beating the empire of tamriel." So you still play as the Dovahkiin and you already know some shouts but you can still learn more. But now the main story is you can either help Ulfric take control of the Empire meaning that more places than just skyrim will be available to travel through, or you can defend Tamriel from Ulfric and the Thalmor, or help the Thalmor controlled the whole empire. Keep the dragons in the game so you can still learn shouts. Make it even more intense, we all know the main story of Skyrim was to draftees the dragons and the secondary story was the civil war, for a secondary story in TES 6 make it that the Daedra are trying to make a return and bring back Oblivion to the world, so at the same time as trying to defend or control the Empire you have to save it from being destroyed by Oblivion once again. How does that sound for a plot of TES 6?

    • Here, I've written a list of what I don't want the next elder scrolls to be:

      1. I don't want it to be in every province 

      (if they put the energy required to make every province toward making ONE province, it would just be amazing) 

      2. I don't want it to be in Akivir 

      (we haven't even seen every province yet) 

      3. I don't want to meet, or find out what happened to, the dwemer

      (the coolest part about them, is the mystery surrounding their disappearance, and what they were like before disappearing) 

      4. I don't want it to be a sequel to skyrim 

      (just no) 

      5. I don't want to become an emperor 

      (another one of those "just no" moments) 

      6. I don't want it to turn into Sim City 

      (I thoroughly enjoyed hearthfire, and would love for them to expand upon the concept in the next game (perhaps by making each buildable house unique, or by making the houses more customizable. Ex: the fact that you could only have the bedroom in the west wing, but not the east wing was just stupid) however, i don't want them to turn it into building towns or cities, or becoming a Lord or king) 

      7. I don't want them to add sex

      (If you so desperately want to simulate sex, play a different game)   

      8. I don't want them to keep the current guilds system

      (every guild is basically the fighters guild now. If it says thieves guild, I expect them to base the quest line on theft, not combat) 

      9. I don't want to be the dragonborn again

      (while shouts were great, I don't want to have the same storyline again. If they can introduce someway to include shouts without corrupting the storyline, and having them as another form of spells it's fine. But, I don't even know.) 

      10. I don't want the game to have another civil war

      (the game old be WAY too repetitive if the main plot was just another civil war) 

      Opinions? And what do you think they should do about shouts?

      Because the civil war didn't actually end, chances are they either won't mention your part in it, won't mention who was assassinated (or they'll choose to say both were assassinated) and will choose a winning side, or they'll just ignore it altogether (seeing as how it wasn't the main plot)

Unless they build the "war" on non-battle based resistance, I just don't think it would be fun. Of course, they coud always add one battle in a feild, with hundreds of npc's fighting. But, I'd rather seiges, assassinations, black-back operations and political negotiation. Either that, or, just ignoring it all together

    • 1.I dont really care where the game is set as long as it is immersive and fun to play.

      2.Next I want to have the ability to have freinds join my world and help me with quests.

      3. It can never be or become subcription based as that makes you not want to get it.

      4. there should be new mounts cause you know horses are kinda boring. Now a sabrecat that would be fun.

      6. The dark brotherhood should still be around cause who doesn't love sticking arrows in some guy's face for money(in game obviously.)

      And most of all it should be lore freindly, no weird changes!

    • According to a line in the in-game Morrowind and Skyrim book The Hope of the Redoran , the next game will be in Elsweyr and the hero will be called the Dro' Jizad. There is much evidence of the next game being in Elsweyr, like the dialogue with Ri' Saad describing Elsweyr and "Cities so ancient the sands have swallowed them whole" being the region-specific dungeons. Also, when announcing the end of Skyrim DLC, Bethesda said "We hope you continue to persue your gaomng interests here, and elsewhere."

    • Some have theorised that rather than take place in a single province, it could be in a region that encompasses two or more provinces, like Daggerfall did with southern High Rock, northern Hammerfell, and Orsinium. Example, TES VI could be southern Cyrodiil, northern Valenwood and northern Elsweyr.

      That Dominion/Empire border region would be the perfect setting for the Second Great War, since that's where the Dominion and Empire are gathering their armies.

    • That area isn't very big, so it probably would take place in other regions, like colovia, and around Leyawiin.

    • I think Valenwood and Elsweyr Would be great without Cyroldil.

      As I pointed out in another thread, MK hasn't worked with Bethesda for over 10 years. Bethesda's writers might pick an entirely different direction with the TES plot than what MK is writing.

    • I would want to be able to tear the Dominion into pieces. The Second War with the Empire is what the Dominion would call the second Great War. I'm hoping for Hammerfell and High Rock combined, or Elsweyr. So... the next game hopefully will be set during the S.G.W. (Second Great War). I'm hoping for an Empire victory.

    • Don't think anyone said this yet, but I'd like to see a game where you get to play as (or at least in the time of) Tiber Septim.

        Loading editor
    • Wouldn't really be in Bethesda's style to do that, since playing as Tiber Septim would require you to be male and a human (Breton/Nord). They are all about freedom of choice.

        Loading editor
    • That's true, but a game set in his time period would still be cool I think

        Loading editor
    • Sure, would be interesting to be a soldier for Tiber.

    • Also the main series so far only goes forwards in time except for the odd quest, going back to the second and third era would be more likely for a spin off like a Elder Scrolls Travels game (or for a set character a second Elder Scrolls Adventures).

    • That is also true.

    • True, and there was only one other of those "odd quests", Waking Nightmare. But if TES IV is going to be a soldier for Tiber, then I would totally play it. The way I see it is like looking into the past of another Dragonborn (Miraak aside although you don't go into his past). But to see what troubles, victories, dramas, and miscellaneous stuff he has been through during the war, it would be a great game.

      Tes IV was called Oblivion, actually. You weren't a soldier of Tiber Septim. :)

    • It would also be fairly easy to do since the entire story is already pretty much written. You can look up "tiber septim" here on this site and from that page alone you already have enough lore to make a whole game.

      My one request would be to get a seriously epic actor to play tiber septim. Who would you guys like to see voice tiber septim?

      So, assuming Bethesda doesn't revisit a province it's already fully covered, here are the possiblities of which province TES VI might be in:

      -High Rock (only 1/3 was in TES II)

      -Hammerfell (only 1/6 was in TES II)

      -Morrowind (only 1/3 was in TES III)

      -Black Marsh

      -Elsweyr

      -Valenwood

      -Summerset Isles.

      I'm personally hoping for the Summerset Isles, we've seen High Rock Hammerfell and Morrowind already. The Black Marsh while sounds interesting would be nearly devoid of cities. Elsweyr...I think the Khajiit are ugly (just my personal opinion) and don't want to see them everywhere. Valenwood's a jungle (seen enough of that in Oblivion). That just leaves the Isles, with its rich history, no doubt impressive architecture...and the Psijics...oh man I'd LOVE to join the Psijic order!

      I've read it, I don't see how it hints at the next TES game. Besides, that book came out in Morrowind and the next TES game after that was in Cyrodiil, then in Skyrim. I don't think Bethesda was thinking about hinting TES VI way back in TES III :P

        Loading editor
    • But the book reappeared in Skyrim, maybe they just left it there as a note when making Morrowind that they can come back to later in a future TES game.

      The specific reference is: "One of the few magical arts the Psijics of Arteum have kept to themselves, away from the common spells and schools of the Mages Guild, is the gift of divination. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, omens and prophesies abound in Tamriel, some of substance, others of pure folly, and still others so ambiguous as to be unverifiable. There are still other prophesies kept secret, from the prophesies of Dro'Jizad in Elsweyr and the Nerevarine in Morrowind, to the Elder Scrolls themselves." Dro'Jizad being what I'm talking about.

      Also, as Flamedude22 pointed out in the thread about this book hinting at the next TES game, when the Devs announced that there would be no more Skyrim DLC, they said something like: "We hope you continue to pursue your gaming interests here, and elsewhere."

      That can't be a coincidence.

    • The Z Boss wrote:

      It can be indeed. Every time it comes due for a new TES game speculation abounds, each provincial theory is as likely as the next. No hints were given for Morrowind, or Cyrodiil, or Skyrim, yet those were the chosen ones (I still find "Bethesda was planning on TES VI's setting 15+ years before it came out" a bit hard to believe with that cited book, but anyways). Any province is just as likely as the last. Well except Skyrim, that one's 100% guaranteed not going to be it since Bethesda doesn't do direct sequels.

      As to the "We hope you continue to pursue your gaming interests here, and elsewhere." line, here's an equally likely explanation: "here" means "The Elder Scrolls franchise" while "elsewhere" means outside the franchise, and indeed, what was Bethesda's next big reveal? A game in another franchise; Fallout 4, which they were working on when that announcement you cited was released. Or it could just mean "have fun with gaming in general", and they weren't hinting at anything.

      Regardless, we aren't getting an announcement until at least 2017 while Bethesda works on Fallout 4 and its expansions.

    • Morrowind was never hinted at, true. But it is not the same case for Oblivion or Skyrim. In the Tribunal expansion, 

      "We realize that the end of the era will bring many changes. We believe that the gates of Oblivion will open, and the multitude of daedra will roam this world freely. Some might tell you that this is a good thing, that we are descended from the daedra and it will be a return to the natural order of things. I know differently, though. The coming age will be a time of great horror."-Eno Romari. I know this doesn't hint at the location of Cyrodiil, but this is an example of hinting at the next ES game. Skyrim takes is a bit further: 

      (After the Oblivion Crisis is over he will make reference to the Blades "biding their time until the rise of the next Dragonborn.")-Talking about Cyrus (Oblivion). Also, NPC dialogue mentions the Nords of Skyrim being at war with the Redoran of Morrowind (hinting at Skyrim, and Solstheim under Redoran control), as well as syndicates of wizards boycotting Imperial goods, (hinting at the thalmor) as well as some other NPC dialogue that I can't remember.

    • @Draevan13: I know that the reference to Eno Romair was a bad one, my bad. It was just to establish a point that some elements of the next elder scrolls game could be hinted at in a previous one. But still, there was a hint at the location of Skyrim and Solstheim in Oblivion!

      @WrathOfHircine: True, but when I said Solstheim under Redoran control, I didn't mean that the rumor hinted at the Redoran conquering Solstheim from the Nords. I just meant that the rumor was a very vague hint at Skyrim being game location, and Solstheim being DLC location and under the control of the Redoran. Again, my bad for being unclear about that.
