Bethesda is one of the most anticipated companies this year at E3 2017 where they’ll be making huge announcements on their upcoming game Fallout 4 VR. This particular title is set to attract a lot of eyes and attention as it’ll be the highest budgeted game so far in VR. But a possible leak by a user on 4Chan claims that the company has more up their pipeline beyond the upcoming VR title. According to his statement, Bethesda is working on Skyrim VR.
I’m a leaker at Bethesda and I wanted to layout their plans for the future for you guys and give you some pre E3 leaks. Firstly i’m speaking only about Bethesda game studios here not the publisher.
There will be a few announcements at E3 one is a new major title from Bethesda themselves as well.
The two Major announcements are Fallout 4 VR and Starfield.
They are working on Skyrim VR as well but they aren’t sure if they are going to show it yet since they don’t want to take the light away from Fallout 4 VR or Starfield.
Onto Starfield. The game has actually been in conceptual stages since around Fallout 3’s release. It went into pre production officially very low tier pre production after Skyrims Release. After Fallout 4’s release it went into full pre production and after all the DLC was out they sped into full development.
The game is going to be a sci fi open world RPG in typical bethesda first person fashion. Its going to feature 5-10 races there’s still some debate on what should and shouldn’t go in and takes place in the Fallout universe just so far in the future and far away from earth that it’ll only be mentioned in hints. This is part of an ongoing planned interconnected universe of every Bethesda franchise. They gave hints of this by implying the Brotherhood of Steel created nirnroot in Fallout 4. They’re getting a little wacky with the lore and using “Elder Scrolls time wounds” to justify lore inconsistencies.
Basically Fallout is the beginning of the timeline, Starfield is the middle, and Elder Scrolls is Far Future.
The game will feature space travel and hub worlds as well as RNG worlds. Its meant to be a test into more sandboxy/minecraft ish AAA thing but with Bethesda gameplay and still actual designed worlds/quests/etc.
They have another Fantasy game of a famous franchise in the works. Game of Thrones and preproduction Elder Scrolls VI and conceptual for Elder Scrols VII which is Todds Magnum Opus.
You must take into consideration that this is only a rumor and might be a bloated statement. But believing that Bethesda might be bringing Skyrim to VR is quite exciting. Skyrim is actively played to this day with multiple mods and iterations that make the game compelling. The open fantasy world allows users to stay rooted and play for a long duration of time. It’s quite astounding considering the game is almost 6 years old.
The statement above also states that they might not announce this bit of news during E3 to not take light away from the Fallout 4 VR showcasing nor the Starfield announcement. We’ll keep you updated.
