    We had trouble integrating the bard class into a first-person solo action game, so instead we've decided to introduce a new class of exotic weapons for fighters which also double as esoteric instruments.

    Seen above is the faulos, an Engwithan wind instrument which can be transformed into a pair of nunchaku capable of delivering a rapid blur of blows with fatal precision. It was inspired by the aulos, an ancient Greek wind instrument.

    Obsidian is an icon of failing upward. It's rather spectacular, actually. I never imagined someone would take the hollowbourne setting from PoE and give it a budget. We live in interesting times.

    Considering Skyrim was a bad game in almost all ways this Obidians attempt can only be better.

    I am hoping for a smaller world filled with meaningful content instead of huge world filled c/p shit.

    Like others have said, it's more than likely going to be Outer Worlds with a fantasy coat of paint.

    But hey, there's always the possibility they'll knock it out of the park.

    I can't believe five years ago I would've killed to get a Morrowind à la Obsidian. And now I don't care...

    And yet FNV was worse than Skyrim. People still mod Skyrim to this day, it had a dozen final/legendary/whatever re-releases, it even has sex mods, what does FNV have? Sawyer's virgin "muh survival" mode.

    Obshitian is irredeemable and will never release a good title ever again. Their last good title was Kotor2 almost 15 years ago or something.

    Of course he did. Justil Bell is the Sawyer of music. All music he writes sounds so generic, it can put a person on coke to sleep.

    Lol does anybody even know how far in development TES 6 is? Maybe they're finally at the point where they have the powerpoint for the press release for the teaser.

    Next TES game is at least 5 years away. The Outer Scrolls will probably be out in late 2021-early 2022.

    This seems like an early announcement. Not on the level of the TES6 announcement, but it wouldn't surprise me if we have to wait to until the end of the year or even next year before learning more about this game.

    Actually, "after both Outer Worlds expansions are released" seems like a decent bet.

    The Outer Worlds main theme was nice, I think. It had a good motif and it was delivered well — with a gradual build-up like in Ravel's Bolero.
    I didn't like very much the music in PoE 1/2 but I consider that piece good.

    You are barking at wrong tree. I never finished FNV due to it being a game made in unplayable Bethesda trash engine. Kind of like Skyrim. But Skyrim was also terrible in story, skills and world building.
