Now that Fallout 4 has teased us with the possibilities of what Bethesda can achieve on the XBOX One and PS4, Elder Scrolls fans are already making their lists for what should be included on the release date of Elder Scrolls 6. Therefore, I thought I'd bring the most requested updates for the series into one convenient location - there are a lot of requests.
So let's take a look at the locations, gameplay, lore and RPG changes that Elder Scrolls fans would love to have on the release date of Elder Scrolls 6. There's so much that Bethesda can include to raise the next instalments reputation above that of Skyrim's, and we'd love to hear your take on it!
Elder Scrolls 6 - A Wish-list to Rival Fallout 4 & Skyrim
As always, if you have on opinion on what you'd like to see changed for Elder Scrolls 6, let us know in the comments. Personally, I had real issues with immersion when it came to Skyrim, therefore I'd love to see the next game include a much more engaging plot to really sink my teeth into. Wandering around the wilds of Skyrim too often felt very disconnected from the overarching plot and I love me some purpose.
The two main locations that Elder Scrolls fans would love to see in Elder Scrolls 6 are Elsweyr and Valenwood. However, the Summerset Isles often get a mention, due to how beautiful they were in The Elder Scrolls Online. But obviously we want to see Bethesda bring this location to life rather than ZeniMax Online. Personally, I'd love to see Bethesda include two locations in Elder Scrolls 6. This way we could get the best of both worlds and add a bit more variety to the dark and depressing landscape of Skyrim.
What can we say? Almost every single player that engaged with Skyrim has to admit that the combat system in the Elder Scrolls series needs serious work. It was the same with Fallout 3 and how you simply couldn't play the game as an FPS - it was impossible. Bethesda just didn't make the option work outside of VATS. Luckily that's all I want to use, but thankfully Fallout 4 will address this issue. Elder Scrolls 6 needs to do away with the clunky combat mechanics of Skyrim and make them as powerful and intuitive as the game's exceptionally designed shouts.
While we always want smarter AI to go up against in Video Games, one thing that we really want to see in Elder Scrolls 6 is smarter companions. They were supposed to be helping us in Skyrim, but I spent a ridiculous amount of time just trying to keep some of them alive. At least they were great distractions for the dragon encounters.
Hopefully Fallout 4's dog companion will have fixed this issue, and Elder Scrolls 6 will improve on the system even further. I personally would also like to take more than one person around with me, though that may not be something they're particularly interested in.
Player Choice & Consequence
The Elder Scrolls series has never really had the same level of player-impact as other RPGs. When you engage with something like The Witcher 3, it's mesmerising to see how the choices you've made impact in such small and major ways. The whole world feels like it has transformed following your actions and we'd love to see some consequences arise in Elder Scrolls 6. Reactions from NPCs based on our social standing would also be awesome - we want to feel like we have a reputation in this game's location!
The one thing that a lot of players want to see changed for Elder Scrolls 6 are the guilds. Guilds are a vital aspect of the Elder Scrolls series and choosing which one you want to master is vital to your playthrough. But when we were able to master all of them in Skyrim, it felt like a bit too much. Rather than focusing on the benefits of one particular group we could be a master of everything. While that sounds interesting on paper, it really didn't make sense in-game and negatively affected combat.
What do You Want On Release Date?
These are the main points that a lot of players have made for their wish-list concerning Elder Scrolls 6. Bethesda are masterful game developers and we can't wait to see what they've done with Fallout 4 on its release date in November. Be sure to let us know what you desire from both Fallout and Elder Scrolls 6 when it finally arrives for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
