Not sure if you have already seen/posted this already but Fandom and our wiki by extension have been awarded a very high honour.
We are 181 on the Traitors of America list, congratulations on everyone for promoting basic human decency.
The dead have risen
It's just how it is, not much in TES makes sense when you think about it
^They already confirmed that aren’t working on any online titles, which includes both Starfield and ES6. Also, DLC are unlikely to be as inexpensive as micro transitions (though that would be nice).
^Lore wise it makes perfect sense, out of lore it makes perfect sense.
I going to have to say no for the following reasons:
There is no way that this wouldn't infere with the over games they have in development
The engine that they use doesn't matter, it would still take years to make. This is apparent from Starfield that started development before FO4 was released and still hasn't finished being made
Even the fsatest way of doing it, just creating a DLC for Skyrim and adding things to the preexisiting map would still take time and resources that would be better spent on their other projects
There is little you could do with the LDB taht woudn't interfere with the ending of the Dragonborn DLC, for example they Gods wouldn't want to be involved because that would create a conflict with Mora that isn't worth having.
If you continue with the Civil War that would mean having a canon ending which wouldn upset a large portion of the fanbase no matter what the result is.
So, a new plot would have to made from scratch and they would have to make sure that the ideas that they have for TES6 aren't used, they would have to create new models, hire more voice actors, create new enviroments and so on and so forth. All of this is time consuming and would definetly mean that people working on TES6 would have to be involved, even if just to make sure nothing is too similar where it shouldn't be
^ It is the opposite of lazy, so far it has only allowed the writers to be more free and experimental with their writing.
@Sddgghjk I didn't mean that their games don't have politics I meant that they don't base it off real-life situations. The fact that Skyrim features a nationalist that wants to close off the border and a woman who wants to be part of the global community who is the wife of a leader both trying to take control is geniunly a coincidence. America copied Skyrim.
Well, Bethesda Softworks (the publisher) published two gory Doom games and Rage which is also violent. And as for real-life politics, they have never done that. And also, referencing or incorporating politics isn't the same as "being woke", for your future use.
As for microtransactions, they are going to be there, unless there are some big law changes they aren't going anywhere. The question is whether they actually interfere with the game or not.
When it comes to the mobile apps Legends and Blades both push them but both are playable without them, even if it is obvious that the games are easier if you buy them. But they are free to play and so I don't mind. ESO has them (I know it has a different dev but it has the same publisher) but frankly I don't feel pushed to buy them, you might get told about an offer when claiming your daily reward but beyond they stay in the store and out of the game. They are also all cosmetic items that I don't believe can be sold in-game. The paid mods that were implemented into Skyrim and FO4 also aren't disruptive, even if they are absurdly overpriced but that is balanced out with a selection of free and better mods that can be easily added to the game. I have only played an hour of FO76 during a free weekend so I can't comment fairly on that.
So, if this current trend continues they will be in the game but completely avoidable and unlikely to be a detriment.
Lastly, the issue of simplification is a difficult one because they aren't simplifying it for simplification's sake but rather as a way of making the game more accessible. Or in other terms, so more people will feel like buying it and Bethesda makes more money. While this may seem greedy it does have its benefits, the community becomes larger which in turn means more people to work on community content. Which we are likely to still get as it has been confirmed that they are still using the creation engine. It also means that people who wouldn't be able to play a more hardcore RPG can play the game because simplification more often than not also creates greater accessibility. Plus as games such as Outer Worlds have shown, you don't need super complicated mechanics to make a good RPG.
So am I worried about the game? Yes. The last two major games they have made (FO4 and FO76) didn't hit the mark for me, but it is still clear that FO4 was made with care and that the world design team are brilliant and with FO76 it showed that the engine is more versatile and adaptable than people gave it credit for (even if the game is one of the buggiest things ever sold). So, it is a fair worry but I am hardly fearful.
Edit: They also comfirmed that that both Starfield and TES6 will be singleplayer.
Yeah, some of the versions of the wiki are outdated and are slowly but surely being updated according to the Fandom plan thing.
The Argonians more than likely did. The Bruma Guards (and possibly then other forces in Cyrodiil) and some Imperial soldiers did in the novels. More than likely others have as well.
Also, during the Three Banners Wars (the one in ESO) the planemeld things were brought down by many people though that is a different type of portal.
As for someone from Nirn could open a stable gate, during the crisis they would have been able to as the barrier was broken but after then I doubt it.
I like them, it adds to the lore in an interesting way. Full scale war simultaneously happened and didn't happen. It also shows the idea the the divines are not all powerful and that Mundus is fragile which makes the threat of the Daedra all the more serious.
It also gives the chance for writers to be more free in their writing as if they didn't exist they would have to be more careful and then we wouldn't have gotten the brilliant story that Daggerfall did.
It's an interesting topic because there are very few beings it can actually be. It can't be any mortal on Nirn because of the letters reference events that happen in Oblivion and Atherius. That also rules out the Divines.
So, this leaves us with a Daedra (though we don't know what their connection to Atherius is like), a Manga Ge or one or one of the older gods, such as Sithis for example.
Then we have to rule out those that won't care about the LDB. Which leaves us with even fewer options, these are:
Shor, the king of Sovengard
Hermaeus Mora, knower of the unknown
Magnus, the source of magic
Out of those three Mora is the only one that I can see that would both benefit from the LDB becoming more powerful (see the end of the Dragonborn DLC) and would have the means to see all the places the LDB had been.
So while there is no definitive answer and chances are we will never know for sure I am putting my money of Hermaeus Mora.
It is like the real life world wars, which weren't the first wars to be fought on an intercontinental scale. It is just a name
I fail to see the negative.
Firstly, it's getting fans together to complete the project, and can getting people together in a way like that is always good.
Secondly, it brings more attention to all the older TES games, which is a good thing.
Lastly, more people get to witness the perfection that is Shaun Bean pretending to have any clue what he is talking about
For a start they are talking about a 2025 release date, this is 2024. They also mention none of what was said here. I’m saying that this is real, but you haven’t disproved it either.
Both of those articles discuss a different leak.
^^He created the mortal plane, If it wasn't for him there would be no other pantheon, he is the first being to see the universe for what it really is and even after he was "killed" he created an afterlife for the Nords. I see no reason why he shouldn't be worshipped, especially by the Nords.
It not exactly easy to pick the best, it is a subjective decision and hence in this case best does essentially mean your favourite.
If you say so, if you say so.
