Bethesda's big fantasy RPG The Elder Scrolls VI is set to release in Q4 2024, a new leak claims. The game apparently takes place in high Rock and Hammerfell, feature huge battles and players will get to use ships to travel around the map.
Bethesda have been pretty quiet about their RPG The Elder Scrolls VI ever since they announced the game back at E3 2018. This is somewhat expected since they have another major RPG in the works named Starfield, which is set to release before their next epic fantasy title.
However, thanks to the latest leak, which originally surfaced over at The Elder Scrolls Wiki , we have a ton of new details about the game's setting, gameplay, world and release date. Now, before we dive into these details, we suggest you take everything you are about to read with a huge grain of salt, just like any other rumour or unofficial info.
The leak states that the game is indeed named The Elder Scrolls VI: Redfall like earlier rumours suggests but it is apparently set to release in Q4 2024, not 2025 as previously rumoured. Redfall takes place in High Rock and Hammerfell, six years after the events of Skyrim.
The world will have clearly defined subregions similar to Skyrim, with most of these regions warring against each other. Players will experience these conflicts through "huge, epic battle scenes with dozens, if not hundreds of characters battling on-screen in real-time." Apparently, one of the main story missions features hundreds of Orcs charging down a mountain and pillaging a city called Jehanna.
Furthermore, Bethesda intend to build off vehicle mechanics which they developed for Starfield, to allow players to travel the huge world. These ships will feature light customisation, will range from a rowboat to a big four-sail pirate ship and can be crewed by NPCs just like you can assign NPC's to work in settlements in Fallout 4.
The leaker also claims that Daggerfall will be the biggest city Bethesda have ever built and that the studio are taking notes from CD Projekt Red for creating the feeling of a dense, bustling city where NPCs live their life and have daily activities and schedule.
The leak also includes some description of specific quests where players have to take care of Khajiit kittens and a couple of hints about the potential DLC for the game. You can check the full post here.
