The Elder Scrolls 6 or Skyrim 2: Should Bethesda Consider A Multi-Region World?

Multiple regions will make the game that much more open world.

Posted By | On 18th, Oct. 2015 Under News


While we don’t know all that much about what Elder Scrolls 6 or Skyrim 2 might hold, mainly because the game hasn’t actually been confirmed as ever coming, we do have a couple ideas about what it should contain when and if it finally does get announced. Earlier, we talked about the need for dynamic side quests such as the way The Witcher 3 handles those quests. We still think that’s a pretty good way to go and the best way to do that is to also have a multi-region world involved.

The bigger the world, the better the side quests can be, because they can be written specifically for the region where the player is located. That means they’ll be able to have something truly unique when they are going out on their missions. This kind of a setup will also offer a more immersive world all the way around. There is something to be said for the larger an open world in order to make it feel as though you are truly traveling over the land.

If Bethesda wants this next game to be successful, it’s going to have to make sure it stands up against other titles that are similar. The game is only going to be able to stand up against those titles if Skyrim 2 or Elder Scrolls 6 have as an immersive approach as possible and having multiple regions will certainly help.

This article is part of our weekly series on Bethesda’s next big entry into the world of The Elder Scrolls. Through this series we take a look at the possible new features that Bethesda can add into the next The Elder Scrolls game, based on what they implemented in the previous entries and player feedback.

    I really hope it’s not Skyrim 2, because the gameplay of Skyrime is THE WORSE gameplay ever created for TES. I hope NEVER EVER SEE such crappy gameplay and UI. The UI and gameplay for Morrowind is the best. I hope they return in the next TES.
    Remember Bethesda – PC is NOT equal PS or XBox, and if You wish to make games for consoles – do so, but do not release them for PC. At least not with similar control of the character.

      I never played Morrowind. My brother got me hooked years ago by letting me play some of his Oblivion file. I’ve been an addict ever since….next thing I knew, I was in Game Stop buying Oblivion and the Shivering Iles. Then much later I bought Skyrim. It’s not bad, but I like Oblivion way more. I’m actually playing Skyrim right now as I type. I’ll probably end up buying the newest game either way the reviews go if this game comes out because I’m such a fan of TES.

    • Good Guy

      Hey fellow. Yep. We will probably end up buying the next TES disregarding what it is, but it would be much cool if we end up owning a game which not only triggers us as a RPG fans, but own us as a gameplay.
      If You haven’t played Morrowind, but You are finding Oblivion more catching than Skyrim – then I can promise You – Morrowind ( + graphic mods ) will be like a hypetrain πŸ™‚

    • pink glitter

      Have you played the Shivering Isles? I have it, but never even bothered trying it because I rotate between Oblivion and Skyrim.

    • Good Guy

      SI is a cool addition. I strongly suggest to complete it too. Anyway once You are done with either Skyrime and / or Oblivion – just try Morrowind. You will find yourself in a whole new universe, which is much cooler than both Skyrim and Oblivion when it comes to real RPG elements. πŸ™‚

    • pink glitter

      Yeah, I called GS today to see if they had it….sadly they don’t. I’ve got to try Video Game Heaven, Replays, and Cool Stuff next. I’m probably going to have to order it though. TES is a way of life!

    • Good Guy
      this is GOTY edition, just Youtube it about graphic overhaul mods, anyway the gameplay of Morrowind is like the wet dram of the real RPG maniacs, and if You consider Yourself a very fan of TES – it is a must-have.
      I hope You like it. Keep me posted if You get it – and your impressions and toughs on it. πŸ™‚

      TES series started on PC and will always be on on PC first and foremost. Get out and get over it.

    • skinned

      I would never even consider buying these games on anything but a PC. The mod community is just too good to pass up – the consoles aren’t up to snuff in this department.

    • Phydeux

      You all can’t read very well, can you? He’s not arguing in favor of consoles. He’s saying that Bethesda screwed the pooch by gearing Skyrim to be ported to consoles, and thereby giving the PC version a UI better suited to a console.

      It’s funny watching you guys argue when you’re all on the same side.

    • skinned

      No, I think it’s you that can’t read very well. I wasn’t arguing. I was agreeing with the person I replied to, which was John Shoop. Not the person he was replying to, or the author of the article, or anyone else.

    • Good Guy

      Unfortunately I’ll have to disappoint You, since You probably haven’t actually played Skyrim, and You have none to some knowledge on the timeline of events around it. Skyrim is optimized for XBox actually, it have nothing to do with the gameplay of Oblivion, neither Morrowind, which is clearly a PC games.

    • Anonymous

      Skyrim things like UI and this can be fixed, because mods. Enjoy your Xbox fool.

    • Phydeux

      In case you can’t read properly, he’s arguing AGAINST console ports, not for them.

    • Good Guy

      Mainly I am against “One gameplay across all devices”. PC is a PC, Consoles have their very own ways. If I wanted a console gameplay – I will buy a console, but I wanna PC gameplay, and clearly we see not such in Skyrim. I very hope to see in the next TES a gameplay at least close to the one involved in Morrowind.

    • Good Guy

      About modding. If You have modded “till crash”, You’ve probably enjoyed some of my mods, but in both cases – I assume You pobabaly havent actually pimp the UI as far as I did, and even at the turning point of “it is crashing already” – the UI still sux.

  • Legato

    will you people stop with the Skyrim 2 talk? it’s not going to happen. that’s not how the elder scrolls series works. my guess? summerset isles.

  • Kyle Sobleskey

    Skyrim 2 again? As Legato said that just isn’t how ES games work, you’re only making yourselves sound like idiots.

  • Phydeux

    They seriously need to make TES a multi-region game so we’re not always playing in what is essentially an oversized crater because of the way they use impassable mountains to keep you from going beyond the borders. It’s pretty ridiculous to think all of Tamriel being regions surrounded by mountains.

  • Neil

    I don’t care what it is providing it isn’t a generic online POS like ESO

    Plus, have people only heard of Skyrim? It will be ES6 so quit the Skyrim 2 talk already, damn newbies
