It's an unfortunate fact that The Elder Scrolls 6 isn't going to be out for a long, long, long time yet. We're not entirely sure where in the development process Bethesda is with the long-awaited fantasy sequel, but we do know that the company wants to get this right.
Last we heard, it was looking entirely likely that The Elder Scrolls 6 won't be out until 2026 at the earliest. Yikes. Even so, the follow-up to Skyrim has the potential to be one of the biggest and most immersive RPGs ever made. I know I don't mind waiting as long as I have to for Bethesda to work its magic and make it a reality.
While we wait the long wait for any more news on The Elder Scrolls VI, fans are already busy dreaming up concepts of what an Elder Scrolls game taking full advantage of next-gen technology might look like. As spotted by DSO Gaming, YouTuber and designer Pefect Vision (yes that is spelled right) has created a genuinely stunning take on the upcoming game's open world.
Using Quixel's latest "photogrammetry" textures and Unreal Engine 4 to render some glorious-looking 8K enviroments, Pefect Vision was able to achieve something very special indeed. Take a look for yourself below.
While a lot of the locations featured in the above video seem to be taken from Quixel's template "Medieval Game Environment", between this and the kind of mod videos that show Skyrim running with a crap-ton of mods on ultra settings (see below) fans are getting seriously excited about the possibilities next-gen technology affords The Elder Scrolls VI.
While Skyrim without mods certainly isn't a bad-looking game by any means, it is starting to show its age a little after nearly ten years. I mean, imagine a game that could look as good as the below video without the need hundreds of mods and a scarily powerful PC?
A brand-new Elder Scrolls world with environments as lush and detailed as in the video above would absolutely be a dream come true - provided it was still filled with epic quests and memorable characters, of course.
For now, we have absolutely no idea what the official finished product from Bethesda will even look like. If this concept video is even the slightest indication of what to expect, however, then I can say with some confidence our eyes are in for one hell of a treat. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to back to my busy life of counting down the days until The Elder Scrolls VI releases.
