Bethesda already made it clear that it will not release any official statement about "The Elder Scrolls 6" until it is nearing its launch. The gaming studio also revealed that it is currently working on "Starfield" and "The Elder Scrolls 6," but in terms of the official release, the former will come first. While Bethesda executives were mum about the sixth game iteration, fans do not run out of speculations, and the most recent ones include the possible location and the storyline of the game.
"The Elder Scrolls 6" is going to be a major title that will feature groundbreaking technology if the statement of Bethesda's Todd Howard is to be believed. But, for the game to keep up with today's role-playing titles, it must have outstanding graphics, engaging ability progression, battle mechanics, and gripping storyline. "Skyrim" is a great game but it also got a mediocre review when it comes to storyline.
The game was not able to engage its players emotionally because of the empty backgrounds of its companions, unlike hit titles like "The Witcher 3" and "Dragon Age." But, if the recent rumors are true, it seems that Bethesda is also investing in a profound storyline for "The Elder Scrolls 6." Rumors have it that the upcoming title might feature the Daedric Prince of Plague.
The new "The Elder Scrolls 6" speculations were founded by Bethesda's attempt to trademark Redfall in 2018. In the game's lore, there is a Daedric Prince called Peryite responsible for infecting the skin of his followers which turns their skin red. Although Peryite is the weakest among 17 princes, he is still a force to be reckoned with considering that one of his special powers is pestilence.
It would be interesting if Bethesda will feature the Daedric Prince of Plague in "The Elder Scrolls 6." Another heavily speculated topic among "The Elder Scrolls 6" fans is the setting or location of the upcoming game. Fans have already seen High Rock and Hammerfell in "The Elder Scrolls II," Morrowind and Daggerfall in "The Elder Scrolls III," the imperial province of Cyrodiil in "The Elder Scrolls IV," and Skyrim and Oblivion in "The Elder Scrolls V."
Based on the general consensus, "The Elder Scrolls 6" seems to be taking place in Valenwood. Aside from being featured in "Elder Scrolls: Arena," the location was not really deeply looked at. Many fans believe that the "The Elder Scrolls 6" project called Project Greenheart is a city located in Valenwood, which further gives weight to the claim. But, like any other speculations and rumors, we advise taking these details with a barrel of salt and with skepticism.
