Apparently you're going to get your own ship, which will be highly customizable, and you'll be able to select from the in-game characters to crew it.

All that said, Assassins Creed: Odyssey may be pretty exciting too. 

Looks like Ubisoft are going full on Bioware with regards to RPG elements, including multiple branching questlines with differing outcomes, multiple choice dialogue options and even romances.  Stealth gameplay is being improved from Origins, quests can be much more open-ended in how they are dealt with ("this guy owes me money, deal with it"...so either kill him, intimidate him or steal what is owed) and a world system where the player's actions affect the balance of power in Greece between Sparta and Athens, spread across 27 different states.

No doubt they'll find some way to fuck it all up, it is Ubisoft after all, but it looks very interesting.  Plus, you know, Ancient Greece.

Apply peer pressure to former co-workers.  "Go on, quit...all the cool kids are doing it."

Also, lots of people seem to think it is Hammerfell, but maybe Hammerfell/Orsinium/High Rock.  That would be my preference, both for storyline reasons (continuing the Thalmor/Empire conflict...hopefully with the possibility of taking either side) and for lore reasons.  If the main character is or becomes a Sword-singer, that would be a really good replacement for the Dragonborn Thuum system.  Given the turmoil in Hammerfell, it is also possible that the player would be an avatar of HoonDing, in which case...shit's going to get real.

It is, and yes, I'm not sure how well Bethesda will handle that.  ESO did give us some new Khajiti lore which wasn't entirely terrible, and could figure into a game plot quite easily...but I'm not sure how well Bethesda will handle a non-human, non-mer centered game.  Personally I think Valenwood would've been boring, possibly after spending hours grinding my way through those zones in ESO and wanting to die every step of the way, but between the well established lore, the lack of VA issues and the potential for a Thalmor-Empire proxy war, it seemed like an obvious option.  Same for Hammerfell, only even more so.

It's also possible I'm completely wrong.  I shied away from it being Summerset Isle because of the mountains and arid landscape, but a lot can change in a thousand years, and Summerset was hit hard by the Oblivion Crisis.  Equally, it could be the coast of Valenwood...but I think if it were they would focus far more heavily on the forest theme.  I mean, the game's Valenwood, so gotta show the woods themselves, right? Hammerfell...eh, if it was the Craglorn region, maybe, as there are some quite fertile areas around there, it does actually strongly remind me of the region around Dragonstar, but it's landlocked.   Doesn't look at all like High Rock, I very much doubt they'd go back to Morrowind...it could maybe be Black Marsh, as we don't really see the coastal regions of it in ESO, only the northern region of Stormhold, on the Morrowind border. 

Or maybe they're actually going to break with tradition and do something genuinely new with TESVI.  Yokuda, Atmora, Thras...Akavir?  I highly doubt it, but anything's possible.

So yeah, my guesses in order of preference are Elseweyr, Black Marsh and Valenwood.  One thing they did say is that they were waiting for the technology to make certain things possible that they wanted to do with TESVI, which I think had everyone thinking Valenwood (walking tree cities).  But maybe they wanted it for something else.

Bethesda just announced Elder Scrolls VI.

Literally nothing else is known.  The video is just the camera sweeping across some fairly undescript landscape and then the title.

Personal opinion: it doesn't look like Valenwood or Hammerfell, which were the two leading theories for the setting.  If anything, the video puts me in mind of southern Cyrodiil...so maybe Elseweyr?  It's the province we have seen literally the least of in ESO, with only Reapers March, a literal war zone on the border with both Valenwood and the Empire, shown, and there have been, unlike with Summerset, Hammerfell and Black Marsh, no planned expansions announced for it.  Mixture of mountains, arid landscape, some trees (but nothing like Valenwood's heavy forests) and coastline limit the amount of places it could be.

The more tariffs Trump puts on foreign goods, the more likely that is to happen.

I believe the current EU tit-for-tat sanctions on US goods were chosen precisely to affect industries in pro-Trump states.

When in doubt, the number of fliers produced should be OVER 9000

Of course Trump would only pardon a black man who is a) dead and b) already pardoned.

Heresy leads to Slaanesh and Nurglings and Xenos.  It is known.

It's amazing how he consistently takes Russia's side on almost every issue.

It's almost like the pee tape is real.

Christ, Tao Jones was an asshole.

Actually, Jesus was never mentioned in the Principia.  You should read it sometime, cabbage, or else have your star revoked heresy.
