The Elder Scrolls 6 opening sequence teased by Bethesda boss

The Elder Scrolls 6 opening sequence teased by Bethesda boss

Bethesda boss Todd Howard has teased the opening of The Elder Scrolls 6 in a brand new interview.

Bethesda are known for taking their sweet, sweet time but they do say good things come to those who wait. For now, all eyes are on Starfield. Delayed until 2023, Starfield is set to be a whopper of a game. The game reportedly has more dialogue than Skyrim and Fallout 4 combined. There are also over 1,000 planets for players to explore - plus the game has been described as “a dream” for modders, so I’d imagine it’ll only continue to grow in size.

Beyond that though, lies The Elder Scrolls VI. All we really know is that the game is in pre-production and is set to release after Starfield. For the most part, Bethesda are keeping pretty tight-lipped - but they have now teased the game’s opening sequence.

Take a look at some Starfield gameplay below ahead of the game’s launch next year.

As reported by ComicBook, Bethesda director Todd Howards has revealed in an interview that the opening is already mapped out. “What's the tone we're going for? Where is it set? We usually start with the world," Howard said in an interview with Lex Fridman. "And then we are always overlapping. [...] By the midpoint of one game we've had enough conversations to understand what the next one is going to be. Where is it set, what's the tone, what are the big ticket features that make it really unique.”

“And then when we are finishing [a game], we start concepting [the next one]. We'll do concept art. For one reason or another I usually have the beginning of the game worked out. I like to think about how the game starts. What does the player do first? We do music early. So, take The Elder Scrolls 6. Figure out where it is set, what's the tone, and what are the big features. We discuss the beginning of the game, which we've had for a very long time,” he added.

Admittedly, this doesn’t really give anything away to us fans, but we at least know that the opening of The Elder Scrolls VI has been planned out for a “very long time.” Too bad we’ll probably have to wait a few more years to see what that opening entails.
