Glad to see it isn't going to be using the Oblivion engine as it definitely was getting a bit dated. Oblivion was my first experience with the series and I can't remember how many hours I spent on it, so to say I'm looking forward to V is a bit of an understatement. :p

Very boring teaser (like the rest of them shown), and I predict a delay into 2012. TES isn't a winter game

I don't think so. Bethseda has said that this would be the shortest time from announcement to release of any of their games. They clearly chose 11/11/11 for the numbers(as Friday is not a normal release day) and so I completely expect them to hit that mark.

Part of the problem is that it's hard to replicate the bugs in such huge games, they tend to be very random, so it's hard to fix what you can replicate, or never actually come across in testing.

Very random, eh? Try looking at UOP's changelog. You'll see that nothing is random. Everything can be replicated. ;)

There's no way this'll get released next year

Surely a brand new engine on such a massive game is likely to be just as buggy as the previous one? I wouldn't get your hopes up too much for a relatively bugless game :p Looking forward to more info.

Well the previous 2 TES games were both slated for Winter releases and both were delayed.

Going up against GoW3 and Uncharted 3, never mind the inevitable yearly CoD, I wouldn't count on them releasing it in that window. It's popular, but not that popular to see them off.

Hahaha I was about to say...Bethseda's games, while fantastic, have always had ridiculous number of bugs...and that's with them licensing a known engine and modifying it to suit their needs. A brand new in-house engine? I would expect it to be buggy as hell.

The good thing, however, is that TESNEXUS exists =) So many bugs in Oblivion have been fixed by the community via unofficial patches.

GoW3 and UC3 do not share the same userbase with TES. Also remember that TES will have PCs to itself as Gears and UC will be exclusive to consoles. And did those last two TES have anything other then a time period for release or did they get exact dates like 5 has?

Its not Oblivion engine.

Elder Scrolls games have always pushed the technology envelope in their engines and graphics. So based on past history I wouldn't expect them to re-use 4+ year old engine for this game. This isn't Duke Nukem.

Does anybody know if Elder Scrolls will use a modified Rage engine?

Does anybody know if Elder Scrolls will use a modified Rage engine?

With id Software being owned by ZeniMax Media, and ZeniMax Media also owning Bethesda Softworks. There is some speculation that Bethesda will utilise the id Tech 5 engine for their games including the next game in the Elder Scrolls series. The problem is that id Tech 5 is not able to render Global Dynamic Lighting, meaning that a progressive day and night cycle is not possible. Therefore games like the Elder Scrolls series or any other games that want to utilise id Tech 5's ease of rendering a large open world which typically would include a day and night cycle, makes this engine unsuitable for those requirements in its current form.

Wow it can't do day and night? For a large open world games(like Rage) it seems like that would be a must.

Personally couldn't stand Morrowind, but I found Oblivion to be much fun. Still, it had so many shortcomings that made it a bit dull to play after a while...

This. I hope it retains some Oblivion similarities, less Morrowind please.

I would think so, I guess they're just going to go with a somewhat constant global environment. Or just follow in Doom 3 and make everything dark.

They had exact dates iirc. IV did anyway because they wanted it to be a 360 launch title and ended up missing it by 5 months.

As for user bases, doesn't really matter imo, but we'll see come 11/11 ;)

I was floored by Morrowind when it first came out, Oblivion not so much.

Ah the thought of the next Elder Scrolls game just thrills me. Oblivion IMO was one of the best RPGs I have played and I liked it better than Morrowind. Oblivion's success actually brought up Fallout 3's evolution. Definitely one of the most anticipated games of 2011.

I dont know why people praise Oblivion so much.

Dont get me wrong i really loved the main storyline and all the sidequests were for the most part interesting and they didnt feel tacked on for the sake of adding extra content.................but..................... while it looked pretty for a game of its time the world was empty, there was no incentive to go exploring the cookie cutter/copy and paste dungeons they were all the same and you rarely fought anything interesting or found any rare or interesting artefacts or items and dont get me started on the Oblivion gates where you didnt have to fight anything just run to the end ignoring all the enemies and pick up the sigils. I enjoyed Shivering Isles more than i did Oblivion.

I hope now that theyve got the world creation down to a 't' that they try and flesh out the world and give all these points of interest at least some incentive to explore.

I think Oblivion was awesome because I don't really have anything else to compare it to, it was my first proper RPG (I think, nothing else really jumps out to but I could be wrong)

I actually enjoyed most aspects of the game, apart from the Oblivion gates. I really hope that this one has dragons, it would be so cool :D

      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      Team Ninja launched the action RPG Nioh sequel titled Nioh 2 for the last-gen PlayStation 4 console last year. Two months ago, the video game developer revealed that Nioh 2 would be leaving PlayStation exclusivity by announcing Nioh 2 Complete Edition. The PC version is set to arrive early next month.

      Today the game's makers revealed more information about the upcoming PC game on Twitter. Publisher Koei Tecmo shared further details about the features of the upcoming Nioh 2 Complete Edition. A new game trailer highlighting the PC features has also been released.

      As per today's announcements, Nioh 2 on PC will support 4K Ultra HD, ultra-wide screens, HDR and a 144Hz screen refresh rate. The game's makers have added complete customizability for mice and keyboards and the game is touted to run at 60fps or 120fps consistently, depending on whether the PC specs are compatible of course.

      Nioh 2 Complete Edition for the PC platform is due out February 5, 2021, exclusively on Steam. Pre-orders are currently open and can be placed on Valve's dedicated game store. As a launch promotion, those who buy the Nioh sequel within the initial three weeks after the PC release will get two bonus in-game items, the Sohaya Deserter Garb and Ornate Gold Armour.

      Bethesda and MachineGames are working on an Indiana Jones game
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      In a surprise announcement, Bethesda today revealed that a new Indiana Jones game is incoming from one of its studios, specifically MachineGames. The project comes as a collaboration between Bethesda and the newly reborn Lucasfilm Games banner that was announced yesterday.

      The Indiana Jones game is described as a "wholly original, standalone tale set at the height of the career of the famed adventurer." It's unclear if Harrison Ford's likeness will be used here, or go another route. Bethesda Game Studio's Todd Howard is helming the project as the executive producer. Check out the cryptic teaser for the game below, which is said to have hidden hints.

      For those not familiar, MachineGames is known for its modern Wolfenstein series of shooters that has had two mainline entries and several standalone side storylines, with the most recent being Wolfenstein: Youngblood from 2019.

      It sounds like the collaboration is still in its early stages, as the announcement says "It'll be some time before we have more to reveal." Also, considering Microsoft will soon be finalizing the acqusition of Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media, the Indiana Jones project may be an Xbox and PC platform exclusive when it is finally ready to ship.
