Bethesda’s chief game creator, Todd Howard, knows what Elder Scrolls VI should be like, but his team needs more time and perhaps better technology to make it.
This morning brings us a rare gem: footage of the cancelled Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion game for PSP, which was due to be part of the Elder Scrolls Travels series before it was axed.
In 2014, The Elder Scrolls Online had a monthly paid subscription. In 2015, it ditched those subs. Now, Bethesda’s literally offering money to people who play it—they’re giving away $1 million to a random player, to be announced on February 1 2016.
Archaeologist Andrew Reinhard has dug through humanity’s past among ancient ruins in Greece. These days, though, he digs a little closer to home.
Netch are basically giant land jellyfish, domesticated in the region of Morrowind for their hide and jelly. They also have huge, strong tentacles, and are quite vicious when you come at them with a sword. So why wouldn't you want one?
It's not that Malacath, the patron Daedra of Elder Scrolls' orc race, is a bad guy. He's just into solving problems with violence.

Limited edition The Heroes' Guides to the Elder Scrolls Online:
Look at the detail on that thing. I can already see it fus ro dah-ing me from across the room.
An open-world fantasy RPG, predictably enough.
"Never have our choices weighed more heavily," boasts the narrator. That's hard to believe, considering we're talking about an MMORPG—but hey. Awesome-looking (and sounding!) trailer. Those first-person shots really help give it that Elder Scrolls feel. And... oh, yeah. The game's coming to next-gen consoles, too.
