Elder Scrolls VI Announced — April 1, 2013
In a soon to be released interview, it has been revealed that the next installment in The Elder Scrolls series will be TES VI: Akavir. While few details have been confirmed, the game will be a surprising new take on the TES world, occurring in the land of Akavir—the continent east of Tamriel—and using the Akaviri races Kamal, Tsaesci, Tang Mo, Ka Po' Tun, Sload, and Maormer instead of the ten that have been playable up until now. Underwater exploration is also planned.
Following on from the two-way civil war in Skyrim and the three competing factions in Elder Scrolls Online, Akavir will involve a four-way war between the four main Akaviri races (Kamal, Tsaesci, Tang Mo, and Ka Po' Tun). Sload and Maormer will be present, but may or may not join in the conflict. The war will be very similar to the one described in Mysterious Akavir and will happen alongside an Imperial invasion.
Starting locations will change depending on which race the player chooses, a throwback to Arena and Daggerfall, and similar to the upcoming TES Online game.
This game will not affect the release of future Skyrim DLC.
