  1. Regarding Elder Scrolls VI, I expect there will be a marketing delay of two years. So, maybe 2025? From what I have heard from inside Bethesda Studios, they have had a Beta version running for over a year. They had a lot of quests to refine and voice acting but it should be playable in some areas. So 2025 seems like a reasonable date.
  2. When I got to the part about NVSE my system looked entirely different and I had to log in to NEXUS, Authorize, log in to Vortex, and then open my messages. And then Enable NVSE. Then I had to update Vortex and let it reopen. Otherwise, Gopher's instructions worked perfectly. In game I immediately got stuck trying to do the first quest, You're Special. I saved, exited and restarted the game. Then everything worked fine.
  3. It is only a few months, not a year. It is common for marketing to put out a release date that is too soon for release. Remember that they turned over the engine development to Microsoft so they could concentrate on game development. The delay is likely a combination of two studios working together and incorporation of team efforts. When everything comes together in Beta they often find conflicts in quests. Remember the drifting horses in ESO... Gopher is also forgetting that ES working under MS is now a separate studio and is not likely delayed due to anything going on with Starfield.
  4. Actually I tried and failed to get Fallout 3 to install under Win11-Dev-Insider version, but I assumed it was because my beta version of Win 11 is a bit odd and quirky.
  5. I haven't modded Fallout 3 in years but it is the same procedure as Fallout NV. Vortex makes it fairly straight forward. Gopher has a series on using Vortex. CBBE is not available for Fallout 3 but Nexus has quite a number of body models for Fallout 3. Try: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/4280/ Make sure you only install Fallout 3 mods on a Fallout 3 game.
  6. II agree. It would be better if the camera was separate from Gopher's head.
  7. I have epilepsy so watching VR is a bit iffy. However, I am watching Gophers VR playthroughs and enjoying them... I just have to stop watching when I get queasy. I have not tried this mod so I will have to load it up and try it. I wonder if it is compatible with the Museum mods? Well, I shall find out!
  8. I can't believe that we do not have a Starfield topic already. Oh well, here is a link to the best current news on the new game. Everything you need to know about Starfield (pocket-lint.com) It has all the new trailers etc. This is definitely a game Gopher will role-play! It is also a game I will likely buy on the first day or play by Gamepass. Release 11 November 2022!
  9. Saying that Geralt will have cameo appearances suggests a time frame right around the Witcher series unless there is a flash back or time travel. Saying that Ciri will not appear because she died in some of the Witcher endings is not the final word if she continues to time travel. If there is interaction with "storybook land" or whatever it was, then all bets are off. Basically, Witcher could go in so many directions that nothing is fixed.
  10. Yes. All of the Expanded Settlements and similar mods change the limits on settlements. It generally doesn't matter how a settlement came to exist except in a couple of instances. The only way to see if your settlements are "real" settlements is to try it in game.
  11. The way to exceed the building limit is through a Building Expansion mod. There are a number of mods out there that will do this such as Build High - Expanded Settlements 5.0 Build High - Expanded Settlements 5.0 at Fallout 4 Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com)
  12. BTW as a writer I can think of cozens of ways to bring Geralt or Ciri back. All you have to do is think like Dirk Gently. Personally, I would love a story about Geralt's grandson born to a Unicorn and Ciri's daughter born in the futuristic world where Ciri went.
  13. Is Witcher popular? From Wikipedia: "The Witcher was, until the release of Bridgerton and Squid Game, Netflix's most watched original series launch at the time, with 541 million hours viewed in the first 28 days of release, and season two achieved 484 million hours watched.[126] "Sales of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in December 2019 were 554% greater than those from December 2018, attributed to renewed interest in the series due to the show.[ Needless to say, the Witcher is extremely successful. What will the next game be? I think the answer lies in what Andrzej Sapkowski has written about the Witcher universe. His stories are all over the place, so I have no idea which way the story will go. Something mythic I expect. Definitely epic.
  14. It is a bit odd that they put this announcement out as a Cyberpunk announcement Cyberpunk 2077 @CyberpunkGame For the next installment in The Witcher series of video games we're moving from REDengine to Unreal Engine 5. However, REDengine, the technology which powers Cyberpunk 2077, is still being used for the development of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 expansion. twitter.com/witchergame/st… FROM -- The Witcher 4: Everything CDPR has said so far, plus all the rumors | GamesRadar+ The Witcher 4: Everything CDPR has said so far, plus all the rumors By Sam Loveridge published 2 days ago Will there be a Witcher 4? We round up what the developer and the games suggest is in Geralt's future witcher 4 rumors - Geralt from Witcher 3 CD Projekt Red has officially announced that The Witcher 4 - or at least a new Witcher game - is in development. "We're happy to announce that the next installment in The Witcher series of video games is currently in development, kicking off a new saga for the franchise," came the announcement. We already knew that The Witcher 4 is going to happen eventually, with developer CD Projekt Red all but officially confirming that fact in multiple interviews over the years. But what we don't know is whether it'll actually be called The Witcher 4, or how it'll continue the series' narratives. What we do know is that it won't be coming anytime soon, because it's clear that the developer has quite a bit on its plate already. It's working on the Witcher 3 PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrade, and continuing to beaver away on DLC and patches for Cyberpunk 2077, having just released the PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrades for the futuristic title. However, the studio has gone as far as to talk about having a "relatively clear concept" for the next game, and originally said that it planned to release another AAA game by 2021. Now obviously that hasn't happened, but that OG timeline could mean a new Witcher game relatively soon. That doesn't mean you should expect more Geralt, or even for the game to be called The Witcher 4 - the studio is clear that the original trilogy stands alone - but there are plenty of stories in the universe of The Witcher to explore. For now, we'll just have to keep binge-watching the Netflix series and reading the Dandelion fan fiction, but here's everything we know so far about the next installment of one of the best RPGs. What the devs are saying Well, well, well. What else do we know that CD Projekt Red is working on? A new Witcher game? Specifically The Witcher 4? Oh hell yes. CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kiciński has already basically confirmed that there will be another Witcher game, it just won't be called The Witcher 4, so it's looking likely the next game is but a few years away. "The first three 'Witchers' were by definition a trilogy, so we simply could not name the next game 'The Witcher 4'. This does not mean, of course, that we will leave the world of The Witcher," said Kiciński in an interview with Bankier. "The Witcher is one of two franchises on which to build the future activities of the company," he adds. " Today, unfortunately, I can not reveal anything more." With The Witcher 3, developer CD Projekt Red created a glorious, huge and utterly explorable fantasy world that told tales players will be talking about for years to come - including talk of unicorn sex. It took the Witcher series to a height of success it had never seen before, making it's scarred, white-haired hero Geralt a bit of a star. We all love the way CD Projekt Red deals with DLC too. For Witcher 3 (one of the best RPG games of all time), it gave us 16 free downloadable content packages with the 10-hour expansion, Hearts of Stone in October 2015 and then the beefier second expansion, Blood and Wine, in May 2016. Once you lock yourself into The Witcher 3’s world, it is incredibly easy to just stay there. The latest gossip is direct from CD Projekt Red president Adam Kiciński, who said in March 2020 to a group of journalists (via Eurogamer Poland/PSU) that a "relatively clear concept" has already been staked down for the next entry in the Witcher series, but that full production would kick off "immediately" after Cyberpunk 2077 hits the shelves. That's on top of official CD Projekt Red forum moderator Donata Popławska recently confirmed that “as far as the strategy of the CD Projekt Capital Group for 2016-2021 is concerned, its plans to release the second AAA game by 2021 remain unchanged. We are currently focusing on the production and promotion of Cyberpunk 2077, so we do not want to comment on further projects." (You can view the translation here.) That smells like The Witcher 4 to me, and some time before 2021. Worried The Witcher Netflix show will be another flop? Don’t be - here’s why it could be the best game-to-TV show ever... While Developer CD Projekt Red hasn’t outright confirmed that there will ever be a Witcher 4, it certainly hasn’t been ruled out completely. As we've explored above, the team isn't averse to talking about the idea of another Witcher game, and it's getting more interesting after CD Projekt – the parent company of developer CD Projekt Red – signed a deal with Witcher books author Andrzej Sapkowski to "further solidify their relationship". "We've always admired Mr. Andrzej Sapkowski's works – a great inspiration for the team here at CD Projekt Red," says Adam Kiciński, President and Joint CEO, CD Projekt. "I believe today marks a new stage in our continued relationship." But talking about a new Witcher game isn't a new thing. In an interview with Eurogamer back in May 2016, CD Projekt Red co-founder, Marcin Iwinski, said the team “didn’t have anything planned” when it came to the next Witcher game. “As we said before, never say never [but] right now it’s really Blood and Wine. This is the end. Blood and Wine is [the] closing and there won’t be any Witcher any time soon - if there ever will be one.” But back in December 2015, CD Projekt Red CEO, Adam Kicinski seemed more definite that this is a series the developer would be reluctant to leave behind. “It’s too early to talk about it, but it’s not like we’re forgetting about this brand. It wouldn’t be fair towards the fans,” said Kicinski to Polish TV station TVN24 BiS. “We’ve worked within this universe for over a dozen years now and I don’t think it’s going to be the end of it.” But fast forward to March 2017 and CD Projekt Red’s investor call was much more illuminating on the topic of The Witcher 4 - or at least another Witcher game. “The Witcher was designed as a trilogy and a trilogy cannot have a fourth part, can it?” said Marcin Iwinski. “We like this world a lot. We invested 15 years of our lives in it and a lot of money. So, we’ll think about [making a new Witcher game] at some point. But please consider us as rational people, we sometimes have weird ideas but overall our thinking is very rational. We have full rights to The Witcher games. They are ours. We have invested enormous funds into promoting it, and it’s a very strong brand.” Iwinski went onto say that The Witcher series “deserves some rest”, or at least the team needs a change. “For the past ten years the team has been working on swords and castles and medieval Slavic monsters. So I think it’s time for some guns, androids, and some ammo.” The team is currently working on Cyberpunk 2077, which is due out sometime after 2017. But CD Projekt Red is also working on another game scheduled for release sometime between 2017 and 2021. That’s mysteriously described as a AAA RPG title, but according to Iwinski, although Witcher fits that description perfectly, you probably shouldn’t get your hopes up. “We are a publicly traded company so we cannot comment on that [game] but I can assure you we are not working on another Witcher,” he said. Ok then. What the games are saying ***Warning, major spoilers for The Witcher 3 lie ahead*** If you play The Witcher 3 through to conclusion then you’ll know that it does round off the series in quite a closed manner. The base game has over 40 different ending variations, but whatever happens it’s very much the end of Geralt’s story. Whether you get one of the good endings or the bad one where Ciri snuffs it, Geralt’s story sees him riding off into the sunset, either destined to roam the land as a Witcher until his last days, retiring to Kovir with Triss or going off with Yennefer to a place away from the politics and the noise. “I think good stories must have an ending,” said Jakub Szamałek, Senior Writer, in an interview back in 2015 with IGN. “You cannot extend them indefinitely, and we felt that Geralt has had such an amazing adventure, and his saga is already so long and complex that this seemed like a good point to think about an appropriate finale for the story.” Whatever ending you get Geralt is facing the rest of his days in retirement. In The Witcher 3, he’s already an older man, so there’s no way he could be the face of a potential Witcher 4. He’s just not got the stamina. And of course, the same can be said for Ciri, mostly because if you lose her at the end of The Witcher 3, it’s not going to make much sense continuity wise for those gamers to have her as the protagonist for the next game. That's something that the developers have backed up too. Speaking to Polygon during a tech demo back in 2013, executive producer John Mamais said that The Witcher 3 was Geralt's last story, but that wouldn't stop him from a cameo or two in the future. "We are not killing the world and walking away from it, but we will definitely want to make this game the finale in a big way," said Mamias. "We might even include Geralt in later games potentially. We just need to talk about it and figure out what we're going to do next." Of course, the series has plenty of side characters, NPCs and other faces that could take up the mantle of Witcher hero, but it seems like there’s no clear direction for the next game to go in from the ending of The Witcher 3 and its expansions. What we’re saying I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want The Witcher 4 to exist one day. Like millions of others out there, I think it’s a masterpiece of gaming that absolutely deserves a sequel. However, having played The Witcher 3 and its expansions, I can see that there is an end to the series - at least in its current form. If we were to see The Witcher 4 land on our PC or consoles in the next few years/decade, there’s definitely scope to have a fresh face lead us there. No doubt we’ll be playing as another Witcher, although it could be that part of The Witcher 4 is having to go through the Trial of the Grasses, the incredibly painful test that young apprentices have to survive through in order to become a Witcher. It’s how they get their signature cat-like eyes, and other enhanced skills. It would certainly be a lot of new ground to cover, especially seeing that new Witcher trying to carve a name for themselves in those early years - particularly in the shadow of Geralt and Ciri.
