No Skyrim 6, “Adventures In Hammerfell” Arrives This Spring First Instead (Rumors)

By  | 

It has been said the next DLC from Bethesda could be only months away. Redguard has been trademarked by Bethesda and this led to many rumours about the expansion spreading over the internet. Pete Hines went on Twitter and talked about the release of Redguard.

There is nothing to say that the next DLC to come out will be Redguard or when it will be released. Bethesda does have history and we can learn from this. In the past they have trademarked their titles and then they have announced the DLC. Based on this we may expect the next DLC, possibly Redguard, during the spring of this year. Redguard could then follow on from Dragonborn, which came out in December.

At the moment Redguard news has been sparse, but it hasn’t stopped fans from talking about it on Twitter. Pete Hines responded to the rumours, but what he had to say didn’t please everyone.

He said “We haven’t announced one nor said we are doing one.”

Hines responded to another fan by saying “@LShankley just the three [DLCs] you know of. No other dlc has been announced for skyrim.”

While Hines is keeping quiet about Redguard and its release, but this does not mean that we don’t know anything about the DLC.

Xbox 360 The Official Xbox Magazine said that Bethesda had said that Redguard was called “downloadable computer game software offered via the Internet and wireless devices.” This they said was enough proof that it was on its way as a DLC.

They went on to say that Redguard would take gamers to Hammerfell as this is the home to Redguards who happen to be warlike and proud. They said that ” You may already know from playing Skyrim that the Redguards are the fiercest warriors around. They also hate wizards and most types of magic. Xbox Magazine notes that the warrior tribe is “”reportedly skilled in the use of Destruction magic, the latter aren’t big fans of wizards in general — they regard any combat art that doesn’t deal out punishment directly as dangerously effete.”

Some people have said that the release date for Redguard is just a rumour and that Bethesda could have trademarked it to protect it.

Bethesda has not trademarked the Elder Scrolls races, the place names or factions though.

Some people have speculated about when Redguard might be revealed. Xbox magazine said that the location may be Dragonstar. This was due to the fact that this was where the Nords, along with Redguards lived.

“According to the Elder Scrolls wiki, the city is (or at least, was) a hotbed of political contention, chopped up Berlin-Wall-style between the Nords and Redguards in the aftermath of a long-ceased war. Visit the site today (you’ll need access to a PC version and mod tools) and you’ll find only an oddly featureless, geometry-less stretch of land dotted with pine trees. Going on technological insight that I absolutely don’t have, this would seem a good foundation for an add-on: the less extant landscape there is to wrangle with, surely, the easier new assets are to install.

“An expansion set partly or entirely within Dragonstar would be an interesting experience, thanks to the aforesaid rocky local politics, but after playing Dragonborn, I suspect the bulk of the pack may once again take place off-shore. Bethesda’s decision to revisit the isle of Solstheim in the most recent expansion was a stroke of genius… Skyrim’s expansions could serve as a means of publicising the game’s wider universe prior to the launch of the continent-spanning Elder Scrolls Online.”

Those who play Elder Scrolls may wish to bear in mind that the DLC has had links to a previous title, they will also know that the Ebony warrior is one of the most difficult of enemies to beat and this was a Redguard.

So will Redguard take place in Hammerfell or will it be Dragonstar?
