'Elder Scrolls 6’ NEWS: Release Date Moved, ‘Argonia’ Wins Over ‘Redguard?’ Bethesda Launches ‘Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel’ DLC

Many fans were expecting "Elder Scrolls 6" to be released this year. However, Bethesda announced at the E3 2015 that they would be launching "Fallout 4" instead. 

Peter Hines, vice president of Bethesda, said that the delay was due to its polishing. Expectations are getting higher for this game, so the team is making sure that everything is fully furnished before its release so that gamers will experience the new installment filled with new features.

Hines hinted that the release date will be moved to 2016, as per Vine Report. The exact date wasn't confirmed, but rumors are circulating that it will be announced on the 2016 E3.

Opinions are divided on which title better suits "Elder Scrolls 6." "Argonia" has a greater chance to be chosen over "Redguard," according to Food World News.

"Argonia" is the name of one of Tamriel's provinces, which is believed to be the game's location. Although Bethesda has already trademarked "Redguard" in 2011, with "Elder Scrolls: Skyrim," many preferred the other title.

The lack of information about the "Elder Scrolls 6" gameplay, especially the multiplayer option, is driving the fans crazy. "The Elder Scrolls" series is amazing as a single player franchise, as per Boosh, but how it is in a multiplayer domain is a mystery that diehards are eager to find out.

Meanwhile, instead of releasing "Elder Scrolls 6" this year, Bethesda announced at the 2015 QuakeCon, that it would be launching the "Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel" DLC pack, IGN learned.

The Imperial City will be the first DLC release for the "The Elder Scrolls Online" series. It will be followed by "Orsinium," "Thieves Guild" and "Dark Brotherhood."

In case you want to purchase the game, the "Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Imperial Edition" is currently on sale.

The DLC will hit the markets on Aug. 31. It will be available to public test servers beginning next week.
