The Elder Scrolls 6 could be bigger than we expected with two regions to explore

The Elder Scrolls VI could be about to do something we haven't seen from the franchise in years, giving us the chance to explore more than one region in the base game.

We know that the follow-up to Skyrim is currently in development, and that it's already playable. But where, exactly, within Tamriel will the game be set? Skyrim let us explore a cold and mountainous region, while Morrowind had us visit the Vvardenfell province.

We might assume The Elder Scrolls VI is taking us somewhere we've never been before, but rumours - as well as teases from Bethesda - would suggest we're returning to somewhere we haven't been for a long time.

At present the smart money is on The Elder Scrolls VI being set in Hammerfell, which is where a large part of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall was set.

Hammerfell is a massive, mountainous region that borders Skyrim and Cyrodill (of Oblivion fame). Home of the Redguards, Hammerfell boasts vast stretches of desert, and plenty of green, rich grasslands. There are also multiple major cities to be found, including the port town of Rihad, which sits on the coast of the Abecean Sea to the south.

On its own Hammerfell would offer plenty to see and do, but fans are convinced The Elder Scrolls VI will actually feature two regions: Hammerfell and High Rock.

High Rock northwestern-most region and borders Hammerfell, so its appearance in The Elder Scrolls VI would make sense. It's also worth noting that Daggerfall featured both of these regions, so it's certainly not as if Bethesda has never done this before.

"It’ll be just Hammerfell at first but will add Highrock in a DLC about a year after the initial release," one fan wrote on The Elder Scrolls VI subreddit.

Another added: "Voted for Hammerfell & High Rock but I'm hoping for just Hammerfell."

Given The Elder Scrolls VI may actually be closer than we thought, here's hoping it won't be long until we know for sure where the long-awaited sequel takes place.
