Elder Scrolls 6: Location
Although not confirmed, it seems likely that the Elder Scrolls 6 will be set in the now familiar continent of Tamriel, as was the case with all previous titles before it.
Somehow we doubt Bethesda will allow players to travel across all of Tamriel – as is rumoured to be the case with The Elder Scrolls Online – although we would love the opportunity to visit previously explored regions such as Cyrodiil (of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion) and Morrowind (of The Elder Scrolls III).
A ballsy angle the game’s developers may take is to completely move the series away from the continent of Tamriel altogether.
Should Bethesda decide to send us to the continents of either Akavir or Atmora, it could provide the game’s creators with the platform they desperately need to introduce a catalogue of new landscapes, characters and weapons arsenal.
Many TES fans are keen on the idea. In a discussion on a Skyrim forum, one fanboy wrote:
“I like the idea of different province starts for different races. To make a TES game with level of detail of Skyrim, but Tamriel wide, would be HUGE undertaking. If it exists in the future, it would be awesome.
“Another possibility is having the next game located in a certain province but having start locations vary depending on your race. You could also have race specific quests or even factions.”
Another wrote: “All of Tamriel would be awesome, Morrowind again would also be awesome but hopefully they’d actually include the part of Morrowind attached to the mainland. My personal choice of Hammerfel though.”
The next generation of consoles would make the possibility of the game being set across the whole of Tamriel wholly achievable.
It would also allow players to begin their adventures in different provinces – depending on the race they choose – for their character at the start of the game.
For example, should you choose Imperial as your race, you would begin your quest in Cyrodiil, the homeland of the Imperial people.
We’re yet to hear of any further rumours on the location for Elder Scrolls 6 but will keep you updated as and when we do.
