The Elder Scrolls Online expansions might feel like cop-outs getting in the way of a mainline entry. But maybe they could be something even better.
Don’t think so. Why? Because the assets wouldn’t be transferable, and different devs are working on each game. And it isn’t really a testing ground because ES6 will follow Akyrim, which had massive audience appeal. It won’t be build for ES fans alone. I just think that ESO is great for mmo and ES fans to keep playing in the world while they wait. It gives Bethesda time to make ES6. We know Starfield or whatever is getting announced this year, and after that, maybe next ye, probably 2020, we will get an ES6 announcement. All that said...I love the Altmer. So Summerset would be an amazing locale.
I loved oblivion but found skyrim dull and a bit of a slog. I hope the next entry modernises the series with a bigger jump between games than was seen between fallout 3 and 4. The Bethesda design is wearing thin these days and with so many great open world games having been released in the last few years i think they need to up their game for VI.
Why would the expansions get in the way? They are not made by the same team that makes the mainline single player games And besides, Morrowind was great and im sure this will be just as good. And also, the writing in bethesdas games is getting worse while Zenimax Online is putting out an amazing effort
Change the title to Elder Scrolls Online no one has a problem with the offline series well asides from constantly asking for ES6.
I never could get into es online, felt lacking in substance..
I don't care about ESO but I do care about ESVI. Rumors of late & going by what Todd Howard has said, looks like we have Starfield (built on the old engine) & ES VI in development (on a new game engine). These projects are far more appealing than ESO ever was. ESO has nothing to do with ESVI except lore & setting.
TESO is awesome.
