It's safe to say that nobody was quite sure what we'd see in this year's Bethesda E3 presentation. 

There was plenty of talk about it, of course. Some had a pessimistic outlook, feeling that the last two years of E3 were a disappoinment.  Some were optimistic, certain that there were big things coming, possibly even TES6.   The announcement of Fallout 76 in particular was a twist that caused even more debate - did it mean that Bethesda had something even bigger to reveal, or was most of the presentation going to be focused on it?  What did it mean for Elder Scrolls and any other potential Bethesda projects?

Tonight, we got our answers.

I live-tweeted on the UESP Twitter while watching, and here's the full video of the presentation, but here's a full recap: the presentation covered games from the various studios Bethesda publishes, Fallout 76 of course, a new TES side game, and teasers of two very major projects that have been the subject of debate for the last few years.........

On May 31, Bethesda made an announcement that came as a shock to the Legends player base: development of the game is being handed off from the current studio, Dire Wolf Digital, to a new and relatively unheard-of team called Sparkypants Studios. Knowing that this would raise a lot of questions, Pete Hines and Community Manager Christian Van Hoose (CVH) spent Friday’s weekly Legends Twitch stream answering questions about the change. Here are the highlights:

About the studios

Why Sparkypants?

They’re a team with a lot of experience in strategy games, as well as a lot of experience in Unity (the game engine that Legends is built on). They are also an incredibly adaptive and fast-moving team, who have reportedly been delivering new builds on a daily basis, and having daily play sessions to check their progress and get feedback. It also helps that they are located in Maryland. CVH also emphasized that Legends will be Sparkypants’ main focus.

ESO Update 17: Dragon Bones Datamining

We're Going to the Summerset Isle!

 

At the UESP, we are known for providing informative and well-researched content about The Elder Scrolls series of video games, and presenting this on the UESPWiki. However, this does not stop us from engaging in speculation of future Elder Scrolls content—ESO, in this case. We have uncovered a huge trove of data-mined assets that suggest not only what and where the next ESO chapter will be, but some of its systems, famous characters, locales, and story, too. We will be showcasing our findings and subsequent speculation in a series of blog posts, dubbed 'We're Going to the Summerset Isle!', a reference to the Vvardenfell datamine back in May 2016.


Disclaimers:

 

Everything shown here was data-mined from the recent Dragon Bones update on both the Live servers and the PTS. Because of this, everything is subject to change. That being said, we are fairly confident that the assets shown here will be used in the upcoming Chapter and subsequent DLCs. Here is the official word on data mining from ZOS:


"You are welcome to post about and discuss speculations and datamined discoveries. Just know that we don’t comment on them, and anything datamined is subject to change or even removal. I would advise placing a disclaimer on anything you put on UESP that is a speculation or based on datamined discoveries noting as much."

We're Going to the Summerset Isle!

 

At the UESP, we are known for providing informative and well-researched content about The Elder Scrolls series of video games and presenting this on the UESPWiki. However, this does not stop us from engaging in speculation of future Elder Scrolls contentESO, in this case. We have uncovered a huge trove of data mined assets that suggest not only what and where the next ESO chapter will be, but some of its systems, famous characters, locales, and story, too. We will be showcasing our findings and subsequent speculation in a series of blog posts, dubbed 'We're Going to the Summerset Isle!', a reference to the Vvardenfell data mine back in May 2016. The second blog post of this series is going to be covering the Summerset Isle and Spellcrafting, but first, we would like to begin with a few important disclaimers:

Most of what is shown here was data mined from the recent Dragon Bones PTS update, and as such, everything is subject to change. Some of the older assets are associated with Spellcrafting and have not yet been shown before to our knowledge, which is why we are showcasing them at the end of this post. That being said, we are fairly confident that the assets shown here will be used in the upcoming Chapter and subsequent DLCs. Here is the official word on data mining from ZOS:
