Elder Scrolls 5 (V): New Engine for 2011 Release?

By Alan Ng - Nov 30, 2010

We have some potentially exciting news for those of you patiently waiting for Bethesda to announce Elder Scrolls V, as we are hearing reports that the developers have built a brand new game engine, and that the follow-up to Oblivion will be the first game to run on it.

If you head over to GamesAbyss, you’ll see them mention that Bethesda has already announced a new game engine, with reports suggesting that this engine has been tailored for use in ‘large open worlds’, which would obviously suit the likes of Elder Scrolls V perfectly – assuming that the game will be as big as Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Here is a passage from their article: ”With the announcement of a new secret game engine, it seems that a new Elder Scrolls is on its way. According to sources, this new game engine works best for large, open worlds, which only further confirms Elder Scrolls imminence.”

GamesAbyss has also added some gameplay elements which they would like to see revamped for the new game, which includes information on the combat system, character models, menu User Interface, and Weapon Degradation.

Hopefully Elder Scrolls V will be released sometime next year. I was definitely a fan of Oblivion, and I have total faith in Bethesda that they will deliver a game as good, if not better than ES IV. If you are a fan of the series, let us know your thoughts on the news.

    As long as I don’t gotta deal with the platforming like in Fallout, I’m happy… Even with that, still pretty darn excited:D

  • Duel

    I thought morrowind was bigger than oblivion?

  • oliver

    im happy as long as they improve the a.i for example people walking on the roads interact with you and if you run around naked the guards come for you.

  • I am so ready to play this game, can't wait until it's release date.

    My main hope is that it’ll use Morrowind’s Skill sheet (spear, long blade, short blade… major skills/ minor skills) and Enchantment soul gem system (where the power of the soul stone depends on the power of the creature you kill)… mixed with awesome graphics and fighting style systems of oblivion.. I also hope that they’ll finally add the ability to duel wield… XD
