The life choices that are available to us in the Elder Scrolls series are just as important as their plots. The guilds within this universe represent the various factions that we can team up with as we utilise the skills that they teach us. Over the years we've seen the focus on this element of Bethesda's games increase ten fold. Almost every player will dedicate hours to mastering the skills of certain guilds, and we'd really like to see some new ones for Elder Scrolls 6.

Skyirm was an incredible game - but that's not to say that it was a perfect creation. I certainly had my issues with it - particularly in terms of immersion - and everyone who spends hundreds of hours with The Elder Scrolls V begins to find things that you wish were more streamlined or better designed. Mods can almost always fix the issues that a lot of dedicated players are having, but we hope that Elder Scrolls 6 can incorporate some of these guilds on release date!

Could Elder Scrolls 6 Have These Guilds On Release Date?

As a fan of the Metal Gear Solid franchise since I was a kid, I love being able to sneak my way through a video game. Therefore, I'd love to see an improvement on the Thief's Guild with something akin to the life of an operative. A Spy guild could allow players to master the art of espionage. We could have increased sneak abilities, better hand-to-hand combat, increased agility but also a great storyline that could support the new skill system.

We could hunt down spies from other areas of the game and infiltrate bases without ever being detected. Perhaps I'm a little too hyped for Spectre and [Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain](tag:2683985), but I think it'd be a great addition to the Elder Scrolls landscape.

On top of this, I'd also love to see a Hunters Guild. With so many games, from the likes of Far Cry, Red Dead Redemption and The Witcher seeing us skin animals, I'd love to be able to hunt like a master in Elder Scrolls 6. Without the installation of mods, Skyrim's hunting system was really lacklustre as it didn't offer any kind of reward for hard work. If we could have increased skills while being able to use animals to level up our character, I'd be super happy with Elder Scrolls 6.

On top of this, I've seen some pretty great suggestions from fans of the Elder Scrolls games! We had recommendations such as an Aedra Guild, an improved Mage Guild, hell we even have players wanting to run their own mafia gang in Elder Scrolls 6! That sounds fricken awesome! There were also other suggestions such as a Historian guild and even a trading guild - the idea being that a player could run their own shop and sell their items to the highest bider, gaining insight into trade relations and key players in Tamriel. It actually sounds pretty cool!
