Where Will The Next Elder Scrolls Game Take Place?

It will be hard for Bethesda to decide where the next Elder Scrolls game will take place, but there's one choice that stands head and shoulders above the rest. (Bethesda Softworks, Elder Scrolls, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls 6, Xbox 360)

Good, good question. I wonder...but I'm hoping for Valenwood.

I think summerset isle makes more sense at the moment. It would be interesting to see the Aldmeri Dominion side of things. It's a stab in the dark though, with Elder Scrolls games sometimes being set quite far apart in time.

The Elder Scrolls VI: N4G...

"Good news everyone! I just killed the flame troll!"

"Bubbles!"
"bubble up dude!"
"-Disagree-!"

"Check out theze instanely cheap pants prizes at my store! only 29.99 septims!"
"Stop, criminal scum! No lollygagging!"

"I thought that elf from the Nintendo village was going to hunt the troll?"
"Nah, he wasn't powerful enough."
"Ever noticed that only old people and kids live there? Anyways, let's get lunch"
"-Agree-"

I'd like to go back to Oblivion and see what the Capital looks like again after all these years but that's just me.

The Elder Scrolls VI: Elsweyr... nuff said!
soundslike  +   829d ago
I would agree for the scenery

but the name is seriously in need of a change. Elsweyr? Really?

I come from elsewhere...

They have to be kicking themselves for not renaming that before it was cemented into the lore. If theres a game set in Elsweyr, theres no way it will be named by the region its set in.
Saladfax  +   829d ago
This'd be one of those times when I'd say a retcon wouldn't be the worst idea. Elseweyr... urgh. I'm fine with attempts at cleverness, as long as it's subtle =\
terrorofdeath  +   829d ago
Sounds like Elsewhere :)
MAJ0R  +   829d ago
maybe they should consult Naughty Dog for their sand technology
SilentNegotiator  +   829d ago | Interesting
Just combine Valenwood and Elsweyr. With Valenwood being a willing part of the Aldmeri Domion and a possibility of Elsweyr having a conflict of tradition vs the Aldmeri Domion, it could make an interesting story. Plus, together, they're like the size of Cyrodiil.
Valenka  +   828d ago
Yes! Excellent point, SN. The Khajiit will definitely be against the Aldmeri Dominion.
Colwyn  +   830d ago
well skyrim took a lot of people to glitchville so the next place is anyones guess

Must have been one of those zones that were exclusive to the ps3, lucky bugger.

Your comment made me laugh...

I think we need another refreshed look at places explored before Morrowind and Oblivion .

That or a rather intense trip linking Valenwood, elsweyr and blackMarsh (and maybe even summerset) ... otherwise those locations seems boring and not diverse enough on their own

Also the easiest way to explore the aldmeri dominion lands through a game , could be to set the story during or at the start of the great . Providing also access to invaded hammerfell and other imperial lands
Fylus  +   829d ago
Well all over the ES forums, there were A LOT of people that predicted the Summerset Isles to be the game after Oblivion (LONG before anyone knew anything of Skyrim). I'd bet that the Summerset Isles will play a bigger role in the next game considering how much mystery there is about it. There would be so many magical (literally) places there to explore.
DanSolo  +   829d ago
Well although it would be an option to do one of the places that have not been done before, I think it's also a very reasonable choice to go back to earlier places...

A lot of new players have started with Skyrim, and others Started on Oblivion... and a large part of the fanbase, myself included, started with Morrowind so any earlier places like Hammerfell would be new territory to a lot of us, and as it was a while back I'm sure most old time Elder Scrolls veterans would be fine with a return there as well.

To be honest they could probably even get away with doing a new game in Morrowind for the same reason as above, lot's of new players have never experienced it and the ones that did always say it was better than Oblivion ect.... so with a big overhaul it could easily be done!

@ABOVE: Baka
That option would make sense to link up some of the other places, as that would fix the issue of each place being too samey.

Drake117  +   829d ago
I think that morrowind actually has a huge chance of being an expac or DLC as they now call it for Skyrim. Im guessing its now a much smaller province after Red Mountain erupted and i think that the argonians in black marsh might have even taken over some southern parts also decreasing its size lol. Perfect xpac size.
Takoulya  +   829d ago
Unfortunately, I've read that Bethesda is not planning on different areas of Tamriel for DLC.
Drake117  +   829d ago
bah good god i hope thats not true lol
adamant715  +   829d ago
Probably outside of Tamriel. There must be other places, right?
pr0digyZA  +   829d ago
Yes in the elder-scrolls lore there are other continents.
PCE  +   829d ago

DaPrintz  +   829d ago
Some place other than my PS3. Loved Skyrim for about 40 hrs till my companions quest line crashed my machine 3 times. I'm unable to finish that quest. May have to wait for goty edition.

The land of Akavir

http://elderscrolls.wikia.c...

"It is the homeland of four seemingly unrelated races collectively referred to as the "Akaviri", which is composed of the Snow Demons of Kamal, the serpent-men of Tsaesci, the Monkey People of Tang Mo, and the Tiger Dragons of Ka'Po'Tun. Little else is known about the continent or the people of Akavir, as few Tamrielians have ever dared to cross the vast ocean which separated it from Tamriel."

A new land,foreign and strange with tons of undocumented species and creatures.Japanese style influences with serpentine-humanoid warrior race.

A new story could get introduced as humans attempt to re-enter the lands of Akavir.
FutureTechnologies  +   829d ago
NOW THAT... would be interesting!
Aerothorn  +   829d ago
I actually put this as the #2 likelihood after Elsweyr.
BillytheAlien  +   829d ago
They need to combine two places since were moving onto smaller places.

Valenwood and Elsweyr look like a good fit...maybe the two regions could be at war with each other. Like a bigger war then the Stormcloaks and Imperials from Skyrim. What race inhabits those two regions ?

By the way I thought in morrowind we only got to see part of it, not the whole region.
Lyr1c  +   829d ago
Elsweyr is the Khajiit homeland

Valenwood is the Wood Elf homeland
vyke3  +   829d ago
Kajits vs Wood Elfs?

AWESOME!!!!

ninjahunter  +   829d ago
Oh please be Black March or Elsweyr Their both so much cooler concepts than more grass lands surrounded by mountains.
iMpuTeD  +   829d ago
i think hammerfell or elsweyr would work. Somebody made a mod for oblivion that is the whole continent of elsweyr its pretty legit and gives you a taste of what beth could do with it.
Basjohn  +   829d ago
Elsweyr has the most surprise potential but from Skyrim's redguard's description of hammerfell having vast oceans in the middle of sanddunes, I suspect that could look and feel amazing.
Dlacy13g  +   829d ago
Next one? Hell i am still not even close to getting through all of Skyrim
OcularVision  +   829d ago
I think it should take place in Mordor, lots of variety there.
xxmatrix1xx  +   829d ago
Black marsh seems like a good place
GraveLord  +   829d ago
How about they fix Skyrim on PS3 first?
OcularVision  +   828d ago | Well said
So you're saying Bethesda should make the PC and Xbox community wait longer JUST so they could "fix" up the PS3 version? Bitch, Please.
ronin4life  +   829d ago
I was pondering this, and I suspect summerset isle will feature next.
Hammerfel is a good bet, but if I'm not mistaken has been covered already. Elswere and blackmarsh are "beastmen" states, which leads me to believe that a populace of mainly khajit or argonians would be a weird and somewhat isolating choice.(which is a shame, as I always main as an argonian.)
An if you are going to make an elf land the dominant landmass for exploration, it might as well be the major imperialistic capital, instead of its vassal.
However, this distinction could actually point TO valenwood, depending on how you look at it....
Games4ever  +   829d ago
I think Fallout 4 is on their mind right now. well I bloody hope!
DanSolo  +   829d ago
I could really go for some Fallout 4 actually!
FutureTechnologies  +   829d ago
Anywhere I don't care, but about the story I would make a long time before the current TES games when the Dwarven were not extinct...it would truly be awesome.
bobrea  +   829d ago
Nothing says they can't just add a new place to the map. Or make it a significant amount of time in the past/future in a different part of the world or when the landscape was different, etc, etc.
Hufandpuf  +   829d ago
I want Fallout 4, but in Elder Scrolls I want Hammerfell.
nilamo  +   829d ago
They should show us some new unexplored continents like Akavir.
ziggurcat  +   829d ago
whatever the place, they better tack on an extra 5 years of development before releasing it so that we can at least play a game that won't fall apart at the seams after 20 hours or so of gameplay...
aznrunner1881  +   829d ago
Probably uh...Tamriel?
BattleTorn  +   829d ago
This is what I think too.
It has a ring to it. (kinda like Skyrim!)
Bounkass  +   829d ago
Funny, how the the cities in Skyrim's map pretty misplaced. This tells me how legit the article really is...
Aerothorn  +   829d ago
That's because Bethesda retconned their own maps when making Skyrim, and has nothing to do with the legitimacy of my article :)
TABSF  +   829d ago
Valenwood and Elsweyr

Seems like it would be more obvious suggestion, why? well non of the Elder Scolls games have ever followed on from each other

But then again there is more to the Elder Scolls Universe than just Tamriel, could be Elsewhere :)
djslapdash  +   829d ago
Ravenholm?
thrasherv3  +   829d ago
We don't go to Ravenholm...

I've seriously been waiting for "this" article. (one to cover this question)
