Bethesda unveils mobile game The Elder Scrolls: Blades

As fans gasped with glee prematurely, he continued, noting that the upcoming game was the first new IP from Bethesda in 25 years.

Bethesda Game Studios Director Todd Howard referred to the first Starfield game as "next-gen", suggesting it might not see a release before the next generation of consoles (either the PS5 and Xbox Two). For starters, Bethesda has announced The Elder Scrolls VI, but the studio didn't stop there.

Although Elder Scrolls fans have been kept busy with endless re-releases of Skyrim on every conceivable console, platform and medium, they have really been wanting a brand new game. There was no exact release date announced, although it was promised for fall - meaning that it should only be a few months away. Both Hammerfell and High Rock have previously featured in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. The game, which will first show on iPhone, is set to become a massive multiplayer online cross-platform game, as Bethesda opens support for Android devices, consoles, PC and VR platforms.

In a neat trick often overlooked by many developers, Bethesda is also equipping Blades to run equally smoothly in both landscape and portrait modes. The sketch was meant to parody the fact that Bethesda has re-released Skyrim so many times.

However, it was the final announcement of The Elder Scrolls VI, the long-anticipated follow up to 2011's Skyrim, which subsequently took the internet by storm. May the gods bring us more good news about this title in the coming weeks and months.

Command & Conquer is one of the most popular strategy games around, and 12 years after the last new entry in the series was released, it's making a return in the form of Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Arena - A battleground where you fight one-on-one against other real-life players.

While Starfield is probably going to be great, there is one other major franchise in Bethesda's pocket that we've been waiting to hear about for years now- The Elder Scrolls.
