Rumor: Skyrim’s next DLC will focus on Redguards

Published

 on

Like a witch stirring her cauldron, Bethesda appear to be once again cooking up something ambitious. If these recent rumors hold true, then it’s probably another DLC expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, this time focusing on the iconic Redguards.

The folks at Official Xbox Magazine UK have done some digging and found that Zenimax, the firm who owns Bethesda, has trademarked Redguard all the way back in March 2011 under the category “downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices.”

They’ve been repeatedly renewing this trademark since then, with the most recent renewal occurring in August 2012. It’ll expire in February of this year unless they renew it again, which is likely.

If this is the next, perhaps final, DLC for Skyrim, then it makes sense. The Redguards live in Hammerfell, which happens to border Skyrim and would therefore make for an easy map extension.

However, some are saying that this could potentially be a plan for a next-gen Elder Scrolls title on PS4 and Xbox 720. Take that as you will.

If an entire Elder Scrolls installment based on the Redguards sounds a wee bit familiar, it’s because it kind of already happened. 1998 saw the release of the spinoff The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard for PC, a third-person action/adventure game that received mixed reviews but has become somewhat of a cult classic.

Stay tuned for more news and rumors regarding this next potential DLC.

RUMOR: Fable 4 Story, Gameplay Details Leak Ahead of E3

Published

Fable 4 will abandon its typical setting of Albion and firearm combat for a brand new, medieval-themed open-world, a possible leak suggests.

A video of the upcoming game has supposedly been viewed by reddit user LagSwag1 who quickly shared the information.

The screenshot below appears to show a brief story synopsis of a new world built upon the ashes of Albion and Fable 3’s Aurora. The two lands have been ‘reduced to fables’ by a mad king, who rebuilt the Spire and wished for an asteroid to strike the planet.

Now in a new era of a medieval-styled world spanning new continents and a Heroes Guild has survived behind a demon door. The leak also appears to describe specific old Fable links such as prophet Theresa and Jack of Blades. However, whether or not these links will be main features of gameplay or if they are alluded to as myths, history, or lore is unclear.

Fable 4 will feature first or third-person camera options, features in-depth character creator, incorporates multiplayer, and also strongly relies on time travel, perhaps as a mode of fast travel.

Though, again, not officially confirmed, the leak suggests the game will also benefit from using the Unreal Engine.

Forza Horizon developer Playground Games has taken over the mantel of producing the next Fable game, so how these leaked details may relate to the game remains to be seen. If the leak is accurate, fans can look forward to an update at Microsoft’s E3 press conference June 9.
