Todd Howard: Elder Scrolls 6 is still a very long way off

A new game engine would be very good news, but unfortunately it also means that the release is still several years out.

From the first person perspective, you will return home to find that it has been destroyed, leading you on an adventure through dungeons and risky terrain.

Elder Scrolls Blades will be released this fall, and the mobile version will be free to download. Combat includes Melee, ranged, and magic attacks.

That said, Howard also reveals that the game is in a playable form right now, so it's at least coming together.

After the surprising success of Fallout Shelter, and doubling down on the developer's newfound love of mobile gaming, Elder Scrolls: Blades could be a very interesting addition to the long-running franchise. They did indicate, however, that both cooperative and player-versus-player gameplay would be available. The "Abyss" game mode features infinite, procedurally-generated dungeons in which players see how far they can get, a PvP "Arena" mode lets you fight with other players, and a "Town" mode lets players build and upgrade their home town.

Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann refuses to confirm future plans
Of course, if he was staying at Atleti, why wouldn't he just come out and say it now if he's already made his decision? However, Atletico responded with a counter-offer which will make him the club's best paid player by some distance.

It's starting out as a mobile-only game, but it will eventually be brought to consoles, PC, and VR systems. Howard jokingly boasted that players could be in a meeting, and no one would know that they're playing a game.

However, he added that a definitive decision on platforms hasn't been made yet.

Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of Skyrim and Fallout 4, welcome you to Fallout 76, the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. The announcement showed little more than an exploding satellite and a logo, but it looks to be Bethesda's next major first-part single-player game project.

Bethesda Softworks had been quiet for quite some time and now it's evident why that was the case. The tease was literally just that - thirty seconds of scrolling Tamriel landscape concluding with "The Elder Scrolls VI" titling.
