Todd Howard: Elder Scrolls 6 is still a very long way off

Wednesday, 13 Jun, 2018

Bethesda has announced it is working on The Elder Scrolls VI.

See Bethesda unveil a new Elder Scrolls game for mobile, Blades. Gamers will be able to play against PC and console players on their smartphones, and vice versa.

"Starfield is playable, Elder Scrolls VI, not in that way yet", he added.

It might be a while before we see the latest entry in Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls franchise hitting shelves. We speculate that the beta will go live sometime this summer.

More intriguingly, Fallout 76 will be primarily online, a first in the series.

The Elder Scrolls 6 is the first mainline Elder Scrolls game in seven years, ever since The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim released in 2011, and the revamped "Special Edition" of the game was released back in 2016.

Blades is much different than Bethesda's mobile Fallout game, Fallout Shelter.

While on stage, Todd Howard mentioned that the map in Fallout 76 is four times larger than the map featured in Fallout 4. Bethesda says Blades supports the two-handed landscape control scheme and a one-handed portrait setup if you'd prefer to play with one hand. It will also be playable in a single-player mode, like the previous games. The game is now in full production stage and a playable build of the game is available at Bethesda Game Studios. It seemed like all was lost for those all those courageous adventurers who wanted to quest on the go, but now that all changes with Blades, which fittingly incorporates a number of the core ideas in The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion. What no-one was expecting, however, was Elder Scrolls: Blades. You will take control of a Panzerhund and fire Nazis to aid the French resistance.

Bethesda's sci-fi survival horror game Prey just received a free update, released on the same night as its announcement.
