The Elder Scrolls is among the most popular franchise in the world. For its part, The Elder Scrolls 6 is one of the most sought-after titles in the series. While we don’t yet have many official details on the game, there are dozens of rumors on the Internet. Today, we’ll show you the most significant of them.
Top 10 The Elder Scrolls 6 Rumors
It might take place in High Rock
In the first titles in the franchise, High Rock was a considerable part of the games. Bretons inhabit the region. As it did not appear in the last releases, the rumors suggest that The Elder Scrolls 6 would be set there.
New combat mechanisms
Another significant addition to the game would be a new, improved combat mechanism. And that might indeed happen since The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has lost a lot in this regard.
Weapon personalization might be possible
In comparison to other games, The Elder Scrolls games don’t have a multitude of weapons, besides swords, shields, bows, and other similar. Well, that might change, as rumors suggest that Bethesda might introduce more weapons in The Elder Scrolls 6. Also, weapon personalization would be possible.
Characters will age
For more realism – as much as it can be in a fantasy game – characters, as well as NPCs, in The Elder Scrolls 6 will age. That would be a nice touch from Bethesda, indeed.
New game engine for The Elder Scrolls 6
Since Bethesda might plan to release the game for next-gen consoles, a new game engine will be needed. If that’s accurate, we should expect an excellent title.
The title could be a prequel to the whole series
None of The Elder Scrolls games was a sequel, per se, of its precedent release. But, the thing is that, as some rumors suggest, The Elder Scrolls 6 might be set before all the other titles in the franchise.
As another significant improvement over the current game in the series, VR support might come to The Elder Scrolls 6.
Changing seasons, influencing the gameplay
Another aspect that regards increased realism – The Elder Scrolls 6 would support changing seasons as the in-game time passes by. That would also affect the gameplay.
Co-op mode might be available
The titles in the series centered on single-player campaigns. That could change with The Elder Scrolls 6, which might support co-op mode, as some rumors say.
The largest in-game map in the series
Bethesda is famous for increasing the map of every sequel in the franchises that it develops. That also applied to The Elder Scrolls series. According to rumors, The Elder Scrolls 6 would sport the most extensive in-game map that Bethesda has ever made.
