    Looks like High Rock, maybe?

    This game is (probably) years out not sure why make a thread now. :laugh:

    There’s no way the game is set in just High Rock so it is probably Hammerfell or Elsweyr shown here.

    Looks like a desert to me so Hammerfell or Elsweyr. The huge body of water doesn’t really give anything away.

    Hammerfell is my guess, which would be great. Redguards have a ton of awesome, untapped lore, and they are right in the thick of the Thalmor stuff we should be picking up after Skyrim.

    People already pinpointing the location. Seems to be Hammerfell. I wouldn’t be shocked if it were both Hammerfell and High Rock.

    Amazing news. I need this now.

    Probably Hammerfell from the looks of it. Jagged sand eroded landscape next to an ocean.

    I definitely think doing the Illiac Bay again is possible, but my money is still this being Hammerfell and just Hammerfell.

    Though maybe we do get a little bit of High Rock and the Adamant Tower since it is in the bay.

    I would think it has to be Hammerfell or Elsweyr, with the possibility of multiple provinces of course.

    Bethesda doesn't usually announce games that early, I'd guess much less than that. Fallout 76 is an online game so I wouldn't expect it to affect the es release date, different audiences

    Could be High Rock and Hammerfell. IIRC, they're right next to each other.

    Gotta admit I'm disappointed it's not Elsweyr though. Kahjit have gotten the short end of the stick in the past few ES games, so it'd be nice to have a game where they're the occupying race and everyone else are outsiders

    Hammerfell makes more sense to me narrative wise. Closer to the action to deal with the fallout of Skyrim.

    The beast races have never gotten any real love.

    I'm pretty sure in the Skyrim lore Hammerfell is an independent province, but also war ravaged.

    Yeah they broke off from the Empire after the Empire sold them out. They kept fighting and fought the elves to a stalemate.

    Would be the front line for a new war against the racist elves.

    Sword songs could also be a shout replacement.

    Would be the perfect place for a lot of politics and covert ops type stuff as it's a neutral province friendly with no one that both sides want to control.

    Redguards also have a neat pantheon, and links to a sunken continent far in the path. They got some interesting internal factions that are squabbling as well.

    It also has a real North African vibe, which would be neat to see in a fantasy setting. Good change of pace from Tolkien or Norse fantasy stuff.

    Only played Oblivion and Skyrim. Wasn't a fan of the former. But I loved Skyrim. Excited to see what it's going to be like. Whenever that is lol

    Hammerfell makes for a better subtitle for the game than High Rock and Elswyer (i.e. The Elder Scrolls VI: Hammerfell). I'm an advocate of choosing the name that sounds the coolest and then building the game backwards from that.

    Are you saying that beasts need love, too?

    Ok, I'm sold. It's a cool name and it has curved swords. What more could we want?
