Elder Scrolls 6: 5 Most Likely Locations To Be Revealed At E3 2018

Can anything beat Skyrim? ... Yes.


It's been seven years since Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released, and three years since Fallout 4, so it's looking very likely that Bethesda's next big game will be announced at their E3 conference on 10 June.

The company have previously said they're working on two large titles. One is rumoured to be a new IP called "Starfield", a sci-fi adventure game that people hope will be revealed soon. It's looking increasingly likely that the other one will be the next Elder Scrolls game.

As with any Bethesda game, everyone wants to know one thing - where it will be set. Everyone has an opinion on what Elder Scrolls VI's location might be, or where they'd like to go in the universe, and these range from the plausible to the downright boring (Bethesda have been re-releasing Skyrim for seven straight years: we don't need another game there!)

Wherever they choose to go, it's a certainty that the land will be more riveting than the real world. To find the perfect location, it needs to work in two ways - it'll have to make for a good game, and it'll have to work in the lore. These are the most likely options.


I'm based in the UK, looking to make a career out of writing about entertainment and culture. The only thing I like as much as watching films, playing games or listening to music is enjoying as much hummus and crisps as I can while I do so. My favourite film is Eddie the Eagle and I like any game that lets me wander around beautiful worlds (or eat hummus and crisps).
