Recently, Microsoft made a striking revelation. The company announced that it acquired ZeniMax media for a whopping $7.5 billion. ZeniMax media owns publisher Bethesda Softworks and game series like The Elder Scrolls VI, Dishonored 3, Starfield, An all-star crossover shooter, Fallout, Doom, and many more. All these games will now be available on the new Xbox Series X. However, they will still require a subscription.
The Elder Scrolls VI
The release date for The Elder Scrolls VI is still unknown. So far, the developers released a trailer that included the soundtrack from previous Elder Scrolls games. The trailer hints at a possible change in location. There is a possibility that the new version can take place in Black Rock, the home of the magic-wielding Bretons, or Hammerfell, the land of the Redguard.
Regardless of the location, the game may offer an open world full of opportunities. It may not have many restrictions as well. Moreover, Microsoft may seek the scripts of Obsidian Entertainment as they have a reputation for developing games with compelling stories. Furthermore, it won’t be a problem for Microsoft as they already own Obsidian Entertainment. The previous developers of the game have often struggled with the storyline. So, this is a viable prediction.
This game is the perfect example of what visionary developers with non-functioning studios can do if they put their heads together. Dishonored is a unique game that allows you to tackle and defeat antagonists in creatively unique ways. There is no end to how you can use your creative imagination to defeat the villain. The second version was built upon the same principle. The only significant difference was that they introduced a second character with more powers and a wide range of exotic locations. Updates for the third version aren’t out yet. However, it is safe to expect the same foundation, with some better updates.
Similar to The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield only has a teaser trailer so far. The release date is unknown, but reportedly, it is set to release before The Elder Scrolls VI. Since it is a brand new game, not much information about it is available. Nevertheless, it is supposedly a sci-fi based game. Now that Bethesda is under Microsoft, it can access better resources to make the game look more realistic and engaging. Just like the tech used in Flight Simulator X, the developers can add minute details to Starfield too.
