Bethesda has made it abundantly clear that The Elder Scrolls 6 (nonetheless unnamed) is a good distance off but, however that hasn’t stopped the studio from teasing fantasy followers about what’s subsequent. Whereas fan theories in regards to the subsequent step for the franchise should supply are rampant, a latest teaser from Bethesda ringing within the new yr has fanned these flames as soon as extra a couple of potential Hammerfell focus.
In a latest tweet, The Elder Scrolls official Twitter shared a picture of a Tamriel map with the caption “Transribe the previous and map the long run. Here is to a Pleased New 12 months!” Followers instantly took the primary a part of the messaging to be a problem to decrypt some clues and it appears like that is from the opening Skyrim cinematic when one character mentions that he can be “midway to Hammerfell.”
Naturally, Reddit took that trace and ran with it in one of the best ways potential by dissecting the lights seen and the world of the map. Based on a really energetic thread, the widespread consensus is that the third gentle is referring to Hammerfell and is supposed to point out the “map the long run” side of the Elder Scrolls franchise. Additionally talked about is that the second gentle is positioned subsequent to the capital Solitude, although the primary gentle appears to have everybody nonetheless pondering the that means behind the New 12 months’s message. Some redditors responded saying that the northern gentle may merely be a nod to Bethesda’s different large IP within the works: Starfield, a sport that may take gamers to the celebrities.
The speculation of Hammerfell just isn’t new (it is even one thing I’ve talked about immensely prior to now), however the map tease comes shortly after one other principle thread went viral regarding the similar location:
One other principle I’ve concerning the following Elder Scrolls is that we’ll see a concentrate on Excessive Rock, judging by that first teaser video. There’s a lot to Tamriel that’s nonetheless unexplored, although The Elder Scrolls On-line has accomplished a beautiful job diving deeper into areas like Morrowind. Seeing “out of bounds” areas for The Elder Scrolls 6 can be a sensible transfer for Bethesda, giving gamers a brand new expertise to take pleasure in inside a well-recognized universe.
