Starfield announced


The Elder Scrolls VI announced



Announced a lot of games and content I wasn’t expecting. I really didn’t think they would announce a new Elder Scrolls after showing off Fallout 76 and Starfield. They really threw it all out there this year.

There’s still many questions left unanswered about how Fallout 76 is going to work with online multiplayer and base building. Only time will tell.
