The Elder Scrolls 6: Release date, platforms, modes, lore, and more

The Elder Scrolls 6 was revealed more than five years ago, but there’s still no news about its release date. Besides a teaser trailer and a few leaks, not much information is available. 

Bethesda Game Studios, the developer, confirmed the game’s development at E3 2018 almost seven years after the release of Skyrim. What we are sure about is that The Elder Scrolls 6 is in the works and will be the next game from Bethesda Game Studios, now that Starfield is already out. 

However, here’s a summary of everything we know so far about the game.

Elder Scrolls 6 Release Date

We’re all eager to know when we can play The Elder Scrolls 6, but there’s not much information out there. Bethesda has said the game is now in development, but it’s still early days. We don’t know when beta or alpha tests might happen.

One thing is clear – the release won’t be anytime soon, at least not until 2028.

According to Pete Hines, the Head of Publishing at Bethesda, The Elder Scrolls 6 is in the early stages of development. Bethesda is currently focused on another game called Starfield, which was released in September. The team wants to finish up things with Starfield before putting all their effort into The Elder Scrolls 6.

Elder Scrolls 6 Set and Lore

People are guessing that the game will be set in Hammerfall, which is next to Skyrim in the fantasy world of Tamriel. In the past games, we’ve been to High Rock, Hammerfell, Morrowind, Cyrodiil, and Skyrim. Valenwood, Elsweyr, and Black Marsh are the main places left to explore. But, we don’t know for sure, and Bethesda might return to places from the old games.

Many fans hope it’s in both Hammerfell and High Rock. That way, we can experience a mix of a familiar European-like environment and a more rough and dry one. If they include the Iliac Bay region, it could bring in a sailing feature and let us explore the sea. People are excited about the possibility of encountering creatures like dreughs again.

Elder Scrolls 6 Multiplayer Mode

Some job listings from Bethesda Game Studios suggest that The Elder Scrolls 6 might include a multiplayer mode. However, there are also opinions and guesses that the game might stick to its single-player roots. The Elder Scrolls series is known for its solo-player experience, but it also has The Elder Scrolls Online, which is a multiplayer online game.

It seems that the success of The Elder Scrolls Online and the growing popularity of multiplayer/live service games may be making Bethesda Game Studios consider whether adding a multiplayer feature could be beneficial for the game.

Engine Used in Elder Scrolls 6

The Elder Scrolls VI is going to be made using Bethesda Game Studios’ own Creation Engine 2. It’s the second game to use this engine, with Starfield being the first in 2023. 

Todd Howard, in a 2021 interview with The Telegraph, mentioned that both Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 will use the same engine. They are making changes to the engine based on the needs of the upcoming Elder Scrolls game. 

The Creation Engine is a 3D video game engine initially derived from Gamebryo. It has been used for making other role-playing games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76.

Elder Scrolls 6 Platform

Will Elder Scrolls 6 Be on PlayStation?

Based on official court documents, The Elder Scrolls 6 is set to come out only on PC and Xbox, and there won’t be a version for PlayStation. The document is from the company’s court case against the FTC, which was recently made public. The entry for The Elder Scrolls 6 clearly states that it’s heading to Xbox, PC, and nothing else.

Since Microsoft bought Bethesda, some PlayStation fans have been worried that The Elder Scrolls 6 might only be available on PC and Xbox. Although official responses haven’t directly answered these worries, it does seem like that’s the current plan.

Will the Elder Scrolls 6 be Available on Xbox Game Pass?

The Elder Scrolls 6 will be on Xbox Game Pass from the very beginning. This means that if you’re a subscriber, you can get the game on the same day it comes out for everyone else without paying anything extra. This is similar to other games from Bethesda, like Starfield, which also joined the service on their release day.

Elder Scrolls 6 Mods

It’s very likely that The Elder Scrolls 6 will allow players to use mods.

Mods, which are extra features created by fans, have been popular in both the Fallout series and previous Elder Scrolls games. Bethesda also allows Starfield mods on both PC and Xbox consoles. While Bethesda hasn’t always been fully supportive of modders, they could benefit from looking at the many mods created by the community for ideas and inspiration to enhance the main game.
