Redguard: new Skyrim DLC pack, or next gen Elder Scrolls title?

OXM UK: "If certain stealthy manoeuvrings on the trademark and patents front are any indication, the next (final?) Skyrim DLC pack will focus on the Redguard, skilled warriors who hail from the nation of Hammerfell, just off Skyrim's south-western border."

The story is too old to be commented.

well their is a path leading to hammerfell in skyrim that you can not access yet. So maybe the access will be enabled when this redguard dlc comes out

Noooooo

I want them to go to ValenWood for the Elder Scrolls 6 and merge the map with Elsweyr aswell since they are both small.

It would be great to wander around the map and see such big chances to the landscape and culture....from the big tall trees of Valenwood to the tropical jungles of Elsweyr

U Racist!...... y u no wanna go to Africa? /s

(I being incredible facetious if its not obvious, lol)

Duckman6201297d ago

I really hope that is the setting of the next game as well!! I think its too early for them to be announcing the next game so this has to be a Skyrim dlc.

GraveLord1298d ago

Maybe they should fix Skryim before releasing a new game? Just a thought.

aquamala1298d ago

what's there to fix? It's only buggy on PS3

DragonKnight1298d ago

You must not have played Skyrim.

aquamala1298d ago

^^^ sure I have , spent 100+ hours on it on pc, what bugs am I supposed to see?

MysticStrummer1298d ago

Bethesda sure seems to think there are still bugs in the pc version, or they wouldn't keep releasing patches. Maybe they know better than you...? I spent more than 150 hours on the PS3 version and had very few bug problems. Does that mean those bugs don't exist? No, it doesn't.

DOMination-1298d ago

Whilst some of the problems that happened mainly with the ps3 version were unacceptable, a game like this will always have minor bugs here and there.

At least they can fix most major stuff now. I think the elder scrolls 2 had a bug which meant you could never complete the main quest. Imagine how that got through testing!

SnotyTheRocket1298d ago

you just said it, it's buggy on PS3. Some of us only own a PS3, so, we kind of want a decent version.

cpayne931298d ago

It's not any buggier on ps3 than 360 now, after all the patches skyrim runs just fine on ps3. I've had little lag and bug problems myself.

gobluesamg1298d ago

I'm in 100+ hours on PS3 and haven't had a single problem. Maybe I shouldn't have said that haha.

Runa2161298d ago

I played it 105 hours my first run through on PS3 only encountering one glitch. My second time through it I spent almost 300 hours and only had less than a half dozen freezes. 400 hours, 6 glitches. That's a better ratio than Uncharted 3 on PS3.

I played it for 20 hours on Xbox 360 and lost count of how many times the game froze on me. Loading times were better and there were fewer late-game framerate issues, but it was far glitchier.

I know I can't use my own experiences as an undeniable truth, but in my experience it was far glitcher on Xbox 360; I think the shitty nature is greatly overrated on PS3.

Darrius Cole1298d ago

A couple of things

First,
@Runa, I understand that 6 glitches in 400 hours is a good ratio but it still isn't as good as Uncharted 3 or any Uncharted on PS3 for that matter. I understand the point you were making but I had to say that. Uncharted on PS3 has been perfect so far. And I mean perfect. I haven't had a single dropped frame in 3 whole games....not one slowdown, split frame, freeze up, or anything else in the entire franchise.

Secondly,

My Skyrim experience was largely stable but it was still glitchy. I had a few random freezes. However anytime I tried to put the camera under the water my game froze up. I had to cross water, I had to make the character look up in such a way that the camera would not dip under the water, or else instant locked up game.

Eyeco1298d ago

Really because I've encountered quite a few annoying bugs in Uncharted 3 in fact just today I couldn't quit the single player portion it was quick saving but it's like it just froze on quick saving so I happened to quit the game via OS and also today when I tried playing online the game froze when I was connecting online and that isn't the first time that's happened to me sometimes when I first boot the game up it freezes wtf I'm up to date with all my patches, I never had this problem with 1 or 2.

DOMination-1297d ago

Uncharted is a linear game where testing for bugs was probably fairly straightforward. Skyrim is much more unpredictable due to the open nature.

Darrius Cole1297d ago

@Eyeco

I can't tell you what your experience was I can only tell you what my experience was. And as far as the performance of Uncharted on PS3 goes it was PERFECT. After the initial load screen, all 3 games run from beginning to end without so much as one pause for a load time.

I understand that other people may have slightly different experiences; but if you search the nets and check the experiences of lots of people, it becomes clear that more peoples' experience has been close to mine on both games. Clearly more people have had issues with Skyrim on PS3 than have had issues with Uncharted on PS3.

maybe you should buy it on xbox or pc since you know the ps3 has a quarter of ram. i have played it on xbox with 300+ hrs without one fatal bug.

konnerbllb1298d ago

You must not have downloaded any title updates. I also have over 300 hours on xbox and the recent title update freezes my game every fifteen minutes or so. It happens most often when sprint into an area that hasn't been loaded into ram.

UnholyLight1298d ago

Me too. Havent had any bugs on my Xbox 360 version at all

THE_MACGREGOR1298d ago

I play on my xbox. Doesnt matter what console you game on. Bethesda went half assed on proper programming. I cant even finish the main story line. So gaystation isnt the only console having issues with the game.
yes i threw in some flame bait.

Knight_Crawler1298d ago

@GraveLord - You must own the PS3 version...I feel your pain bro.

MysticStrummer1298d ago

You should contact Bethesda and tell them to stop wasting their time working on patches for the pc and 360 bugs that aren't there.

A quick google search will show you multiple forums, official and unofficial, where people are still reporting bugs in the supposedly flawless pc and 360 versions of Skyrim.

I have over 150 hours on the PS3 version with few bugs. That doesn't mean bugs don't exist.

Reverent1298d ago

Considering that there was already a an Elder Scrolls game called Redgaurd, I think its a safe bet to say its DLC...

Personally, I'm really hoping that the next game will take place in Akavir.

THE_MACGREGOR1298d ago

I gotta give you a like for that one. And your the 26 morons who disagree. How TF are you all wanting a new game. When bethesda cant even fix the Shit they got going wrong in there game (Skyrim) right now?

GusBricker1298d ago

Yeah, it's buggy, but if you've played RPG's, you know you should have multiple saves and save a lot.

Duckman6201297d ago

Roughly 225 hours of game play (across various characters) and the only problems I've encountered was my game crashing when I try to enter the original Dark Brotherhood location after having finished the quest line, and 2 other times where after playing for 10+ consecutive hours my game has froze. So honestly I don't think the game is perfectly fine.

Time to move on from Skyrim. The Redguards could have their own story in ES6. Later down the line we can enter the world of the Orcs and so on. I remember with Morrowind, the last DLC was to the North of Vanderfell and was a Nord stronghold leading up to Skyrim. They were decimated by Werewolf attacks until I put an end to their nightmare. But Bethesda did not stop there with the Nords. Skyrim gives a true look at their neck of the woods. Same should be done for all the races (their own full ES story.

kesvalk1298d ago

if i remember correctly, orsimers don't have a land of their own.

i want a TES focused on khajiit and Argonians.
or dwemers.

ceballos77mx1298d ago

On what happened to the dwemer, that would be a good story.

mmunflor89851296d ago

Orsimer (spelling?) has been recognized by the empire finally. They werent before Skyrim, but they have a province of their own now i believe. I think a lot of war and racism prevented them from being recognized before. However... it is debatable now whether the empire is the authority to recognize this anymore. There was an NPC in Morrowind that basically said the empires time was almost up. This character was a representation of Tiber Septim himself. I believe his name was Wulf or something along those lines. I dont expect the empire to last much longer given the hints and clues provided. So in future games, i believe something else will take its place.

Summons751298d ago (Edited 1298d ago )

I still want an elder scrolls game with a completely open tamriel, and not that stupid mmo either. I want to travel from the black marsh to summer set isle by myself not online. It'd be amazing if they did it right or released one area and then released one a month to ensure a more stable game.

Mainsqueeze1298d ago

If Bethesda made a game like that and still kept to the depth and detail that their fans and themselves expect then it would take atleast 10 years to make and cost like a billion dollars. Sorry i don't see that ever happening. I like it this way any ways. This way we can have an ES game like every 3-5 years and the series will last longer instead of putting all the content into one game 10 years from now and then not ever having another ES game.

SpecialK1298d ago

What would be good is if someone just somehow stitched the games together to create one large map. Do skyrim and morrowind and cyrodil share borders? (cant remember).

That would be awesome, especially since mods are already out what make oblivion and morrowind look really good

Balcrist1298d ago

@ swpecialk: For PC there's a mod called Skywind that puts morrowind into the skyrim engine.

-Gespenst-1298d ago

Maybe for next-next gen.

MysticStrummer1298d ago

"I still want an elder scrolls game with a completely open tamriel"

The original ES game was like that. I'd love for them to make another one that way but I'd love to have the option of exploring it with a friend.

Conquerbeard1298d ago

Pretty sure Daggerfall allowed for traveling from one end of Tamriel to the other.

Summons751298d ago

Yeah I've played it but it would be nice to have a modern one.
